Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI) announces the new 1200E AES/EBU Digital Audio Fiber Optic transmission module. The 1200E Series transports four or eight channels of sync/async AES/EBU digital audio over a single fiber by uniquely using the time division multiplexing technique.

Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI) announces the new 1200E AES/EBU Digital Audio Fiber Optic transmission module. The 1200E Series transports 4 or 8 channels of sync/async AES/EBU (Audio Engineering Society/European Broadcasting Union) digital audio over a single fiber by uniquely using the time division multiplexing technique. In addition, the 1200E Series can operate as a stand-alone unit or integrated with other BCI modules in a card cage. Also, the 1200E can accommodate other types of services, such as serial RS-232/422 or analog audio through a unique custom interface design.

“The 1200E represents a key technological breakthrough and it solves all of the previous concerns in the “old” AES/EBU multiplexer, including ‘pop’ sound during input switching and the requirement for synchronized AES/EBU inputs,” said BCI President and CEO, Freddie Lin.

BCI’s 1200E Series was developed to provide the highest possible quality, digital, audio, uncompressed, multi-channel transmission. Each channel operates independently from the other and features muting circuitry to provide a “pop free” output during switching of the input source - another unique feature found in BCI’s 1200E. It is also S/PDIF compatible (Sony/Phillips Digital Interface, a standard audio file transfer format developed jointly by the Sony and Phillips corporations) and interfaces with the BCIView Network Management System (see press release dated April 18, 2005). In addition, the 1200E Series supports single-mode and multi-mode fiber optic cables, as well as WDM/CWDM optics.

Broadata Communications, Inc. (BCI) develops, manufactures, and markets leading edge, fiber optic, multimedia communication products. The company’s patented products include audio, video, and data delivery over optical fiber for advanced multimedia, broadcast, and network transmission applications. BCI’s multimedia platforms enable end-users to implement multiple applications, conventionally requiring multiple optical transceivers and fiber links over a unified platform, needing only a single optical link.
