San Francisco, CA (October 5, 2006)–Wireworks is making some new product introductions today, Day One of the AES Convention. In Wireworks’ Booth #101, the companywill show the new MMB8D Cabling System, its diGi8 Series Components and its latest AES/EBU Direct Cabling Assemblies.
A solution for problems involving interfacing DB25 analog and digital connections to XLR connectors, the MMB8D MiniStageBox can be used as a rugged standalone interface, or rack-mounted. Offering true AES/EBU 110_ rugged jacked cable combined with Neutrik Black/Gold connectors, the MMB8D is available in various gender combinations with either analog or digital wired DB25 connectors mounted on the rear, or with a 4ft. tail for in-rack direct connection. The MMB8D cabling system includes the unique MMB8D MiniStageBox and MMLD8D MiniLineBox, DB25 Trunks and the convenient MMBR Rack Adaptor for the MMB8D and MMLB8D boxes. Additionally, Wireworks offers a complete line of companion DB25 assemblies to facilitate installation.
The MMB8D MiniStageBox’s all-steel chassis is 1RU high x 9.5″ wide (1/2 rack width) and 3″ deep. Two MMB8D boxes can be mounted side-by-side in the MMBR Rack adaptor in only 1RU. The MMLD8D MiniLineBox and the MMB8D MiniStageBox are similar in size and functionality. Yet, the MMLD8D MiniLineBox differs due to its ability to connect directly to an individual’s equipment, without an additional DB25/DB25 interconnecting cable. The MMLD8D MiniLineBox’s DB25 female connector is terminated into a hardwired 4ft. cable versus being mounted directly on the box as on the MMB8D MiniStageBox.
Wireworks’ diGi8 GroupWireworks’ diGi8 Series Components have been designed to protect DB25-based gear from the wear and tear of the road. Wireworks heavy-duty diGi8 Series Components are built on the company’s road-tough G-Series connectors and are paired with rugged, full-size AES/EBU cable to provide peace of mind for the road warrior.
Available with both analog and digital wiring, and supported by a wide variety of XLR and TRS combinations to fit every setup, the 8-channel cabling system includes the diGi8 MiniStageBox, diGi8 Trunk cables, XLR and TRS Fanouts, MMBR rack-mount adapters, and adapters to DB25 connections. All components use true AES/EBU 110_ rugged jacketed cable and all connectors feature heavy-duty metal bodies with gold contacts for best results.
The diGi8 MiniStageBox’s all steel chassis is also 1RU high x 9.5″ wide (1/2 rack width) and 3″ deep. The diGi8 Trunks can be connected, either singly or in a chain, so short and long cable runs can be configured to meet varying system and venue needs, while the company’s BLS latching system prevents inadvertent disconnects. The diGi8 Cable Trunks are available in convenient standard lengths of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100ft. with other lengths to order. Available in a variety of configurations, the diGi8 Fanouts are ideal for simplifying termination. Male or female Wireworks G-Series connectors are available with a range of connectors terminating the eight, color-coded tough, 4ft. tails.
AES/EBU Direct Interconnect CablesFinally, Wireworks’ new AES/EBU Direct Interconnect Cables: these are available in 10ft. and 15ft. versions–with a wide variety of XLR connector combinations, including all male, all female, mixed genders or TRS connectors. Wireworks Direct Cabling Assemblies include Tails/Tails, DB25 analog or digital Fanouts, and DB25 Trunks supporting either analog or digital wiring standards.
All Wireworks Direct Cabling Assemblies use true 110_ rugged jacketed cable featuring Neutrik Black/Gold XLRs, TRS and DB25 connectors with heavy-duty metal bodies, captive thumbscrews and gold contacts.
Wireworks DB25 Trunks are available in five lengths–5, 10, 15, 20 and 25ft.–with other lengths to order. Wireworks AES/EBU Tails/Tails Fanouts provide a solution for AES/EBU equipment requiring direct plugging without BD25 connectors. Fanouts are color-coded for instant identification and are available in standard lengths of 10, 25 and 50ft. with other lengths to order.
