FiberPlex Inc., a provider of fiber-optic data communications for the U.S. government, announced that its LightViper™ VIS-1832 fiber-optic pro audio solution for digital data communications will be on display at NSCA at booth #1645.

The LightViper VIS-1832 comprises a “traditional” 32x8 audio input Stage Box (in compact size and form for touring sound system applications) and a complementary 1U rack unit (Model VIM-1832) installed at the main house mixing position. Connecting these two components is via a rugged and extremely lightweight military specification fiber-optic cable weighing less than two pounds per 100 feet of cable run.

LightViper’s fiber-optic cable offers total signal path isolation between both stage and mixer, as well as between the mixer and power amplification. The cable is immune to ground loops, RFI, EMI and electromechanical noise, and runs of up to 6,600 feet can be accomplished without signal loss or degradation.

The inputs on the audio input stage box accept balanced or unbalanced XLR or TRS mic or line-level audio. Remote switching for industry-standard 48-volt phantom power is supplied to all audio mic inputs. Optional optical outputs on the stage unit allow for a separate stage monitor feed and a third to send the audio data signal to a remote broadcast or recording vehicle.

Pristine-quality A/D converters are built-in and operate at 24-bit/96kHz sampling. The resulting multiplexed digital signal is transmitted via the optic cable on a single fiber pair.

FiberPlex includes a lifetime-limited warranty with all VIS-1832 system hardware components.

The SRP for the LightViper VIS-1832 configuration is $7,026, which includes all components (one stage unit/VIS-1832, one mix position rack unit (VIM-1832), all cable terminations with 300 feet of fiber-optic cable, four send and one return breakout cables).
