CDC I/O 4016

  • Overview

    The CDC I/O 4016 is a 4U unit configured with 32 analogue inputs and 8 analogue outputs plus 8 AES3 inputs and 8 AES3 outputs.

    The unit also features a LCD display which in conjunction with the 3 surrounding buttons and encoder allows the adjustment of the incoming levels, Mic gain and phantom power settings. The integrated headphone amp also enables you listen to the inputs and with the encoder adjust the gain levels.

    The unit also features dual MegaCOMMS ports on the front panel for redundant connection to the console. There are also redundant duplex optical LC ports allowing runs of up to 2km and easier integration in installations where the network is based on optical.

    The CDC I/O 4016 comes as standard with redundant auto switching internal PSUs and the unit is kept cool via two low noise internal constant flow fans.

    Cadac’s MegaCOMMS digital network allows the audio infrastructure to be designed to meet the requirements of the most challenging applications. With a choice of local I/O cards, stageboxes and audio network bridges plus a dedicated router to handle the dynamic management of the audio, the network can be as complex or as simple as required. 

    All Cadac digital audio is transmitted using Cadac’s proprietary MegaCOMMS digital interconnect protocol which provides less than 0.4 ms latency from analogue input on stage, through the CDC eight or CDC six, to analogue output on stage, plus robust error correction and advanced system clocking.

    The protocol provides up to 128 bi-directional channels of 96 kHz / 24-bit audio along with all control data and clock synchronisation. This is all carried on co-axial cable with runs of up to 150 meters (492 feet) from the console or MC Router. The benefit of combining audio, control, and clock into one single network simplifies connectivity, shortens set-up time and reduces investment in cabling infrastructure.
