Copperlink 2380

3G/HD/SD-SDI Four Channel Analog Audio Embedder

Product Details

This product has been discontinued.

The Copperlink 2380 Series allows you to embed up to 4 channels (2 pairs) of analog line level audio into a 3G, HD or SD-SDI video signal in accordance with SMPTE standards. Convenient switches on the Copperlink 2380 embedder allow the operator to embed each of the two pairs of audio independently, to strip previously serialized audio, or to pass it through without modification, all on a pair by pair basis. Previously serialized data is left intact.

Signals are equalized and re-clocked prior to embedding and the product supports both balanced and unbalanced audio. 

The 2380 Series is compliant with SMPTE 259M-2006, 292-2006, 424M-2006, 272M, 291M, and 299-2008.

Available in card versions and a small footprint box version, it is ideal for broadcast or corporate studios, OB vans, rental and staging, auditoriums, stadiums and theaters, airport or transportation hubs, distance learning, surgical or medical imaging and more!
