A Popular Processor With ‘Big Shoes To Fill’


Audio processing company Orban has released its OPTIMOD 8700iLT FM processor.

It replaces the 8600 FM/HD while offering a feature set close to that of Orban’s OPTIMOD 8700i, including dual redundant power supplies, which are fully monitored and alarmed.

The OPTIMOD 8700iLT also fully supports DMPX in 192/384 sample rates, and provides failsafe relay bypass with analog, AES3 digital, and composite connections.

For customers requiring Dante/AES67 I/O or IP streaming capability for remote monitoring and processor adjustment, an upgrade path to a full OPTIMOD 8700i is available.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer this exciting new product at the same price point as our OPTIMOD 8600 FM/HD,” said David Day, Orban Labs President. “The 8600 has been Orban’s most popular processor, and this new product has some big shoes to fill. We think it does this easily. Additionally, it comes with our full 5-year warranty, the best in the industry.”

The OPTIMOD 8700iLT will be shown at next month’s IBC show in Amsterdam on stand 8.D93.
