Broadcast Tools SS 16.4

Broadcast Tools SS 16.4



The Broadcast Tools SS 16.4 provides matrix audio switching of 16 stereo inputs to 4 stereo plus 4 monaural outputs. Matrix switching allows any or all inputs to be assigned to any or all outputs. The SS 16.4 may be controlled via front panel switches, contact closures, 5-volt TTL/CMOS logic and/or the multi-drop RS-232 or RS-485 serial port. Installation is simplified with removable screw terminals (Euro).



  • True matrix switching, any or all inputs may be assigned to any or all outputs. 
  • Three switching modes. Interlock, overlap and mix. 
  • Logic functions via microprocessor and non-volatile memory.
  • Internal audio activity/silence sensors monitor all four-output channels. Each is equipped with front panel "ACT" LED indicators; adjustable alarm delay and restore duration. Sensitivity is factory set at -34db. 
  • Front panel input selection switches are provided for each input channel with separate output indicator LED's. 
  • Power-up selection of inputs to outputs, mute or last source selected. 
  • Sixteen user configured macros. 
  • Most configuration options via rear panel dipswitches. 
  • 24 input GPI port (PIP) with LED indicator. 
  • 16 open collector channel status outputs or programmable via burst commands. 
  • 8 spst relay outputs. Programmable via burst commands. 
  • Multi-turn input level controls. 
  • Single turn output level controls. 
  • Electronically balanced stereo inputs. 
  • Electronically balanced stereo and monaural outputs. 
  • Remote control of front panel functions and status. 
  • Multidrop RS-232 or RS-485 serial port with data activity LED. 
  • Multiple units may be cascaded to expand inputs. 
  • Depluggable screw (EURO) terminals for ALL connections. 
  • 2-RU chassis.
