Renegade SDI Audio Monitor

Multi-Input / Multi-Channel Audio Monitoring System

M3G-XT Front

The new M3G-XT allows for SDI audio monitoring and adds the ability to also monitor additional audio sources including Dante™/AES67 Networked Audio, SDI, Analog (Mic/Line) or Digital inputs. The M3G-XT allows for easy multi-channel audio monitoring—such as surround sound or multiple-language dialog tracks—to external monitor speakers.

With the ability to accept the complete range of Renegade I/O modules the M3G-XT can be configured for nearly any monitoring application. Add a Dante™/AES67 Networked Audio module and the M3G-XT can monitor both networked audio and the incoming SDI signal while simultaneously sourcing the SDI audio on the Dante™ network. Alternatively, add the new 3G/HD/SD dual-SDI module and gain the ability to monitor up to three SDI sources in one compact solution. The M3G-XT also provides the ability for additional outputs to be added, for example, an AES output module to be added to drive digital monitors or external meters.

The M3G-XT de-embeds the audio from any ancillary audio group present in a SMPTE SD/HD/3G SDI video stream. Up to eight channels of audio from any two groups may be monitored efficiently using the front panel, the remote GUI or automation API. An input select switch allows for monitoring of the SDI or the optional input module.

Audio Monitoring Made Simple

When you need your audio to sound as good as your video looks, the right monitoring system is a must. The transition to 4K and 8K brings with it the need to edit and monitor audio in 6 or more channels. Multi-lingual production, multiple bounce tracks for dialog and effects, conformance editing and other typical video editing operations commonly overwhelm simple monitoring solutions designed primarily for music production.

Renegade has packed the M3G-XT with a number of other features the video professional will also find invaluable:

* Monitor Knob with Unity Indicator allows for level adjustments of all eight audio monitor outputs simultaneously.

* Headphone Outputs can be used to monitor the audio separate from the main outputs.

* SDI Group Status indicators give indication of which audio groups are active in the incoming SDI stream.

* 3.5mm Stereo Auxiliary Input allows PC or mobile devices to feed the monitors.

* 8 panel snapshot memory registers are available for storing room or show setups.

* Remote Control GUI allows the M3G-XT to be controlled, in real-time, from a PC / Mac OS X / Linux, saving desktop space.

Uncompromising Audio

Clean and vibrant sound is vital in assuring that both clients and operators—and ultimately the home or theatrical consumer—experience the maximum impact from a video production. Renegade strives to deliver nothing but the finest in audio design, using top-of-the-line chipsets and circuits in order to produce the most brilliant audio performances possible. All audio I/O in the M3G-XT is 24-bit, with noise and distortion specs among the best in the industry.

The small and affordably-priced M3G-XT SDI Audio Monitoring System is a perfect fit for video editing suites, OB trucks, QC bays–or any place where SDI audio must be monitored. See the M3G-XT in person at NAB 2017, Booth C3244. Download a brochure, or set up a demo, and experience for yourself the sound of Audio for Video the Renegade way!
