The Neumann DMI-2 is an AES 42 interface for use with Neumann Solution-D and KM-D series digital microphones. The two-channel interface establishes remote operation over Solution-D series microphones from a laptop or desktop PC and RCS remote control software. The DMI-2 is to be used whenever the Solution-D digital microphones are used with equipment that does not support the AES 42 standard.
The DMI-2 allows for remote operation and control over phantom power, polar pattern switching, etc. The computer is connected to the DMI-2 via a USB port and a USB to RS 485 interface converter. Word Clock inputs and outputs are featured, along with a built-in Word Clock generator in cases where no master clock sync is present. The computer is connected to the DMI-2 via a USB port and a USB to RS 485 interface converter, and several DMI-2s can be cascaded for multiple microphone usage.
- Two-Channel AES 42 Interface
- The two-channel DMI-2 is used with Neumann Solution-D and KM-D series digital microphones whenever AES 42 support isn't available. The DMI-2 establishes full control over power, polar pattern and other microphone functions via RCS software.
- Word Clock Generator
- The DMI-2 features Word Clock I/O and a built-in generator in case Word Clock sync is not present.
- Multiple DMI-2 Operation
- The DMI-2 is a two-channel unit, capable of handling two mono microphones (one stereo) simultaneously. The DMI-2 may be cascaded for multiple microphone operation.
