Great audio wherever you work
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!

Crystal clear audio with a dual subwoofer design
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.

Know your audio levels at all times
The two big bright audio level meters on the front panel feature multi colored 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!

Milled from solid aluminum for sound free of vibrations!
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.

Advanced 12G‑SDI
Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G supports all common SD, HD and Ultra HD video resolutions. The 12G‑SDI input and HDMI 2.0 output also support high resolution Ultra HD monitoring. The advanced technology of 12G‑SDI is 48 times faster than standard HD‑SDI so you can work at resolutions and frame rates as high as 2160p60, all over a single cable! You can connect to Ultra HD TVs and projectors with HDMI 4K and you can monitor any of the 16 audio channels on the 12G‑SDI input.

Both Audio and Video Connections
Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G has all the audio and video connections you need to make it the perfect monitoring solution in any environment. With balanced analog XLR audio, balanced AES/EBU audio and consumer level HiFi audio inputs it’s easy to connect any audio source. You can select between inputs quickly using the input button situated on the front panel.
