Featuring a dual subwoofer design with extra wide range speakers for amazing audio, all backed by a super powerful class A/B amplifier. This precision audio and video monitoring solution includes an advanced 12G‑SDI input, as well as balanced XLR analogue audio, balanced AES/EBU digital audio and consumer level HiFi audio inputs. The elegant front panel has bright multi coloured audio level meters and a built in LCD for monitoring video sources, plus you get an HDMI 2.0 output for monitoring Ultra HD on big screen televisions.


It’s never been easier to put the highest quality audio and video monitoring everywhere you need it. Install Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G in broadcast racks audio on decks, video servers and live transmissions. At the push of a button you can switch between stereo pairs of the SDI input, great for monitoring alternative language tracks. The compact size is perfect for portable flyaway kits and broadcast trucks where space is tight, or in edit and audio post production facilities where precise audio quality is essential.


The Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G has been designed using the latest advanced audio analysis technology to create a wide and smooth frequency response curve with crisp highs and powerful deep bass. You get great sounding music, extremely clear voice tracks and all the detail of effects tracks! Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G is powerful and loud enough to hear your audio in noisy environments, such as broadcast equipment rooms that have a lot of cooling fan noise.


The two big bright audio level meters on the front panel feature multi coloured RGB LEDs under each segment. You can select between VU or PPM or Loudness scales with a choice of EBU or BBC meters. With lots of meter segments you can monitor a very wide dynamic range, from -45 to +3 decibels, -12 to +12, or 0 to 7, depending on the scale you choose. In addition you can meter Loudness using standard Loudness, K‑weighted, relative to Full Scale (LKFS) to normalize of levels for delivery to broadcast TV and video. The bright audio level meters are always clear enough to read, no matter if you are working in bright or dark environments.


The machined metal design is attractive as well as extremely strong, which means you get a robust chassis that's vital for better quality sound without rattles and vibrations. The elegant front panel features audio level meters, LCD video monitor and a reliable contact‑less volume control, so you never get deterioration and crackling in the audio when adjusted. To select audio pairs, left and right solo, mute and input, there is a built in illuminated keypad and for private monitoring there is a built in headphone socket.
