Vancouver, BC, Canada (August 13, 2013)—Radial Engineering has updated its SW8 backing track switcher.
The SW8 is designed to switch 8 audio channels simultaneously. Backing tracks are recorded on two separate systems and each is sent to the SW8, where the user may manually select between the playback systems or have the SW8 automatically switch between them when a drop-out occurs, via an internal gate. Inputs include a choice of 1/4" TRS or 25 pin D-subs. The outputs can be via a series of transformer isolated low-Z XLR outputs to run through a snake system or a D-Sub.
“We have had many discussions with the technicians who use the SW8 on a daily basis. This input has driven us to develop a next-generation switcher that will elevate the performance in several key areas, such as managing standby status more effectively, muting the main audio outputs to enable on-the-fly editing and providing remote controllability with LED status indicators,” said Radial Engineering president Peter Janis.
