Are you getting tired of crawling behind your rack of digital gear every time
you want to re-configure your signal flow? Are you troubled by the snake-pit of
digital cables under your console? Do you wish you could control your digital
signal flow from the same PC or Mac on which you run your digital audio
workstatsion? Are you wondering how you're going to share equipment in a machine
room between several different audio suites? Are you puzzled by how to integrate
digital audio switching within your existing multilevel control scheme? Then you
need a Digital Detangler Pro.
The z-256.256r Digital Detangler Pro is a fully automated router, patchbay,
and distribution amplifier for your digital audio signals. Just hook all your
digital gear to the Digital Detangler -- controlling "who speaks to whom" is as
simple as the touch of a few buttons on the optional remote. You can send one
source to multiple destinations, you can select between multiple sources to a
single destination, or you can do anything in between. And once you've
established a routing pattern, it can be saved and recalled later.
For added functionality, control the Digital Detangler Pro with our router
control software, available for both Windows and Mac. Besides having the luxury
of unlimited numbers of presets and the ability to give meaningful names to
logical ports, a workgroup of users can share the Digital Detangler Pro from
multiple network sites. Additionally, we can provide you with a protocol
translator, allowing you to control the z-256.256r from a number of popular
broadcast switcher control systems. This enables the z-256.256r to function
Best of all, the z-256.256r is modular, meaning that you can purchase it with
32x32 inputs-byoutputs and expand it in increments of 32x32 inputs-by-outputs.
This allows you to purchase a digital audio routing solution that can grow with
you: as your routing needs grow, so can your router.
Simply put, the Digital Detangler Pro is the smart way to interconnect your
digital gear. It's an essential ingredient in any digital facility; install one
today and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. The z-256.256r is
available with any combination of AES/EBU and coaxial S/PDIF*. We even have a
special cable that will allow you to attach your Digidesign 192 Digital I/O
