  • MLC8-N Multichannel Level Controller with Ravenna® AES67 Networking Capability

    Following up on our Ravenna Partnership Announcement, and the introduction of the AMS2-N - our first AES67 compatible product - we would like to introduce the MLC8-N, a multi-channel level control with Ravenna® AES67 Networking Capability. We will be demonstrating the MLC8-N at NAB 2016, so do attend our Booth C1941 in Central Hall for a first hand look at how this unit works, if you are planning on attending the show.

    The MLC8-N offers an eight channel on-ramp converter to a Ravenna® AES67 network. Equipped with eight individual level controls as well as an overall master level control the MLC8-N allows proportional mixing of the input signals before delivery to the network. Audio input signals to the AMS8-N may be analog, balanced or unbalanced AES. All signal levels are metered on the eight precision LED bargraph meters. This device is ideal for controlling your signals before inserting them into your network. It also offers the individual level controlled AES signals on the rear panel for further distribution. A line level analog audio output that may be fed to a stereo speaker system allows local monitoring of individual signals (solo) or the overall mix of the input signals.

    The powerful MLC8-N comes packaged as a black 1RU unit, and is equipped with Analog and AES/EBU Inputs, as well as Analog, AES/EBU and AES67 outputs. Connections are via DB25 for Analog, Euroblocks for AES/EBU and RJ45 for AES67.


    Powerful and sleek, the MLC8-N has been designed to withstand the rigor of the 24/7 broadcast industry working time. Its small size and rackmountable form factor makes it perfect for use in space-constrained broadcast studios and mobile production trucks.
