Monitor Anywhere

Install the Blackmagic Design Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G (1 RU) in broadcast racks, audio on decks, video servers, and live transmissions. With the push of a button you can switch between stereo pairs of the SDI input, making this unit great for monitoring alternative language tracks. The compact size is ideal for portable flyaway kits and broadcast trucks where space is tight or in edit and audio postproduction facilities.

Powerful and Loud

The Blackmagic Design Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G (1 RU) has been designed to create a wide and smooth frequency response curve with crisp highs and powerful deep bass. The unit 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.

Precision Metering

The two big bright audio level meters on the front panel feature multicolored 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 dB, -12 to +12 dB, or 0 to 7 dB, depending on the scale. In addition, you can meter loudness using standard loudness, K-weighted, relative to full scale (LKFS) to normalize levels for delivery to broadcast TV and video. The bright audio level meters are clear enough to read in bright or dark environments.

Machined Metal Design

The machined metal design is extremely strong. This allows for a robust chassis that produces better quality sound without rattles and vibrations. The front panel features audio level meters, a LCD video monitor, and a reliable contact-less volume control to avoid 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 Design Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G (1 RU) 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 12G-SDI allows you to work at resolutions and frame rates as high as 2160p at 60 fps, 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.

Audio and Video Connections

The Blackmagic Design Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G (1 RU) features balanced analog XLR audio, balanced AES/EBU audio, and HiFi audio inputs. You can select between inputs quickly using the input button situated on the front panel. The 12G-SDI video input and HDMI 2.0 video output both support embedded audio and let you connect to the high-resolution video technology.


You can use the Blackmagic Design Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G (1 RU) to convert from SDI to HDMI for monitoring with big-screen televisions or video projectors. Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G automatically switches between SD, HD, and Ultra HD formats. You can monitor in high-resolution Ultra HD using the HDMI output with a single HDMI cable.
