There are six analogue inputs and eight analogue outputs available via XLR on the rear of the unit, all accessible via the network. These breakouts have no fixed function and may be used for external facilities or assigned to local functions. They may also be used to provide analogue inputs and outputs directly to/from the commentary box, consequently the I/O may be configured to use the DCD2020 as an analogue commentary box with no network connection.
A built in 1kHz, 2kHz or 400Hz tone generator can be set to identify the audio
outputs, perfect for setup and identification with a different tone ident sequence
on each output. Lots of lights flash when it's on so it's not easy to forget. DCD2020 frontdBFS metering is available for all three commentators and the mixed output. The system includes two 2:1 Dante mixers for convenient adding of Dante audio signals. Our purpose was to design a unit to match all current technological requirements whilst still retaining a familiar feel for the commentator.
