Digital Audio Video Editor Mixer System ( DAVE )

Introduced in 2011  at the request of a systems installation in London, this unit pulled together the Audio editing requirements of a TV edit suite into one simple 1U unit and desk mounted control panel.

Using BCD Audio’s embedded DSP core, the unit mixes a local microphone with embedded SDI-HD audio and USB audio from a PC to AES3 and an SDI-HD video signal. Fine level control, routeing and mono left-right buttons allow the embedded audio to be mixed and bounced to different channels.

The microphone amplifier is a digital version of the BCD ALT2, with compressor limiter functions.

The edit suites already had audio monitoring facilities, so these were not built into the unit.

The unit was always a custom product.
