Part of a series of digital audio products from BDI the AES-408 Digital Audio Switcher/DA/D to A Converter has features that few switchers have which makes it suitable for broadcast, professional audio, recording, and ENG truck use. Professional switching, distribution, diagnostics and digital to analog conversion all in one package The AES-408 can even manage non audio standard AES formats for switching and distribution. DIP switch programming of functions allows the user to customize which features for use in different audio situations. Lightweight aluminum construction in a standard EIA rack enclosure makes the AES-408 a great solution for portable setups for transportable rack configurations. Another great use is for automation due to the number of inputs and various ways to remote control the unit.
