Selected audio channels are also provided as AES-3id and analogue outputs on the rear panel. Output levels can be fixed or controlled by the front panel volume control. An integral audio mix system enables any demuxed audio channel to be mixed on either, or both speakers, whilst maintaining a constant output level.

An SDI reclocked loop-through connector is provided enabling connection to downstream equipment.

Loudness measurement to ITU-R BS.1770-3/ EBU R128 standards is available and can be displayed in four different ways, with each showing different combinations of Loudness measures.
