  • 1Description

The 1RU APM-215 Audio Multipurpose Monitor from Imagine Communications is a stereo balanced audio program monitor which features two inputs, two loop-through outputs, and eight stereo outputs. It's designed for ease of integration with Videotek test and measurement instruments, including the VTM Series multi-format monitors and TVM Series multi-format signal analyzers, via a looping input connection and provided 37-pin audio adapter cable.

The monitor's high-quality audio and low distortion is attained using a two-way speaker system with a wide volume control range with balance adjustment. Front-panel, direct-input mode switching allows the selection of stereo monitoring for up to 10 different channels. Two 10-segment, color LED bar graph meters are provided, as is a phase indication LED. A front-panel headphone jack mutes the speaker output for isolated listening requirements.

Shielding permits use adjacent to waveform or picture monitors without magnetic interference, making the APM-215 ideally suited for use in remote vans, editing suites, VTR monitor bridges, or any system that requires high-quality, professional aural monitoring of stereo audio signals.

Ten analog inputs, balanced
Two XLR input connectors, 50 kOhms, balanced
Eight inputs via looping 37-pin D-sub connectors, 40 kOhms, balanced
Direct connection adapter cable for easy installation with VTM Series, TVM Series, VTM-2000, or VTM-2400
Two 10-segment color bar graphs with selectable response (peak and average)
Four input reference level selections (-6, 0, +4, +8 dBv)
98 dB SPL at two feet
High frequency response for positive detection of background whine and noise
Indication of phase/polarity problems
Stereo headphone jack, 1/4"
Magnetic shielding for unrestricted installation location
1RU (1.75") rackmountable
