Neumann 542404 (542-404, 542/404, 54-24-04, 542 404) (DMI-2-Portable, DMI/2/Portable, DMI2Portable) DMI 2 Portable Digital Microphone Interface 

The Neumann DMI-2 Portable Digital Microphone Interface is an AES42 standard interface and processor for Neumann Solution-D microphones. The DMI-2 converts the AES 42 data format supplied by the microphone into an AES/EBU signal. The unit may be manually or remotely controlled via USB and the supplied RCS remote software. There is support for up to 2 microphones and parameters such as gain, attenuation, and low-cut filter are easily controlled and displayed its monochrome LCD display.

  • Ports: 2x AES42 IN (XLR3F), 1x AES/EBU (AES3) OUT (XLR3M), 2x Word Clock IN/OUT (BNC), 1x Remote Control (USB)
  • Indicators: Monochrome display, bar graphs for gain, level and gain reduction, LED’s for Power, Battery status, Synchronization and Valid
  • Phantom power (DPP): +10 V, max. 250 mA per channel, short-circuit proof
  • Remote control data: Pulses (+2 V), superimposed on the phantom power, approx. 750 bits/s or 9,600 bits/s (depending on the microphone)
  • Microphone synchronization: AES42 – Mode 2 (synchronous mode) Microphone clock control via PLL
  • DMI-2 portable Synchronization: automatically to an external word clock or AES11 signal, if present, otherwise the internal word clock generator is activated
  • Word Clock (or AES11) Input: BNC
  • Word Clock (or AES11) output: BNC
  • Internal word clock generator: 44.1 / 48 / 88.2 / 96 kHz/176.4 / 192 kHz, Accuracy ±25 ppm
