Momentum Digital Snake System

Description

The Momentum digital snake system by Pro Co is designed to replace traditional analog audio wiring anywhere audio distribution is needed. By capturing audio at the source, converting it to digital audio and distributing it over a standard Ethernet network, many of the difficulties in executing the increasingly complicated audio systems of today can be simplified. By reducing the amount of field terminations, installation becomes less time consuming. Texas Instruments, Burr Brown mic preamps and Cirrus Logic digital converters provide a platform that is as close to analog as possible without the inherent problems that are associated with traditional wiring.

Flexibility and expandability are enhanced through the use of eight channel modules for both inputs and outputs. These modules can be placed anywhere on the network which makes signal routing as easy as clicking a button. Digital interfaces will be available for seamless system integration, including third party control with AMX or Crestron.

New for Momentum, a matrix mix engine output unit for use as a personal monitor system or distributed audio mixer capable of 4 stereo or eight mono mixes using any 32 inputs that are available on the momentum network.
