Datavideo DAC-91 Reviews

Awesome

This is the perfect complement to a video switch that doesn't do audio. We recently went from Black Magic to Ross and needed an audio embedder and this one is perfect! It has meters built in for you can see how much audio you are inputting.

Works perfectly.

Quality product

I bought this for a church. Our services are considered mission critical. Our live stream is very important to us, we don't want to have any down time or lack of quality. That is why we bought this product. We have used datavideo before and they have lasted us a long time. A few things to know: 1. The power adaptor cable is not the most robust. It does have a screw on type connector, but it isn't the strongest. I accidentally dropped the unit and bent the power connected where it screws onto the device. I tried to bend it back in place and it broke off completely. Not cool. Luckily I have some other datavideo equipment around and was able to connect another power supply while a new one comes in the mail. 2. The device has male mini XLR connectors. If you're from the audio world (like me) you know this is backwards. You can easily find male mini XLR to female XLR. But it is harder to find the opposite. What it doesn't say on this website (BHphoto), is what's in the box. Funny, it doesn't even say on the datavideo website. When I ordered the product I ordered separate cables too. BUT, I didn't need to. In the box with the datavideo product they give you two mini XLR female to XLR female cables. How nice of them! But I wish I woulda known. 3. When you connect audio to this device it will show you nothing. No signs of life. It has audio meters, but nothing will appear. I was frustrated, knowing I was sending audio but not seeing the meter move. Finally I thought, let me connect the SDI cable. Still nothing. Then I turned on my switcher. Nothing. Then I turned on the camera and made sure I was sending a signal. When the device saw the signal it turned on and showed me audio levels. Lesson: Send a signal over SDI so the device turns on and you can see and test audio meters. A little more info would have been nice, but we got it working. It is a sturdy little device. I hope it lasts me a long time.

Works Great!

question

Do the analog audio channels replace the embedded audio on SDI input?
Asked by: David S.
They only replace channels 1 and 2. The rest of the channels are passed through.
