M7CL-48ES adds built-in Ethersound
Yamaha is now shipping the M7CL-48ES console together with the SB168-ES remote stage box as its main I/O interface, which is connected by Cat5 cable.
The new console includes a built-in EtherSound interface with a third port for PC control and monitoring, eight omni-ins (Mic/Line), eight omni-outs, and three MY card slots. The M7CL-48ES supports up to three SB168-ES stage boxes and, like the M7CL-48, can mix up to 48 mono plus four stereo inputs to 16 mix buses, eight matrix outs, stereo and mono outputs. The new Stage Box Quick Setup feature provides plug-and-play connection of up to three SB168-ES units.
The built-in EtherSound interface is intended to deliver M7CL-48ES users all the benefits of a digital network infrastructure while allowing the card slots to be used for other purposes, such as personal monitoring systems and recording outputs. New V.3 software is now available for download and includes updates such as Direct Sends on Fader access from the M7CL knobs in Sends on Fader mode, Sends on Fader in M7CL Editor and new Recall Safe parameters such as Input Patch, Output Patch, Direct Out Patch and Insert Out Patch. The new console also reportedly consumes 50 per cent less power than its predecessor and features on board analogue insertion via omni I/O and added output port delay for each EtherSound output.
Also new is the MY8-SDI-ED, a new broadcast interface card which is compatible with all Yamaha digital consoles and DME series digital mixing engines. The card offers between eight and 64 I/O channels, providing input and output of HD-SDI embedded audio signals. Featuring one HD/SD-SDI input, two HD/SD-SDI outputs and one through-output, each MY8-SDI-ED card is able to de-embed up to two of the four audio groups, multiplexed in an HD-SDI signal, and can embed two audio groups into an HD/SD-SDI signal for output. The card also enables a direct interface to EtherSound, CobraNet, AES/EBU, MADI, ADAT, Dante and other formats.
