Cloud Electronics Z8MK4 - Eight Zone Venue Mixer, 6-Line & 2-Mic Inputs
The new Z8MK4 is the latest generation of the ever popular Z-Series Venue Zone Mixer.
The latest upgrades include a number of new features which make the Z8MK4 even more flexible and installer friendly.
A new Universal Power Supply (85-254v) allows the Z8MK4 to be installed anywhere in the world, regardless of mains supply. The new up-rated power supply also provides increased output to support connection of up to 600mA of internal accessories such as EQ cards and external devices such as LM-2 Line/Mic/Remote Mixer Modules and Paging Consoles. The addition of a new RJ45 THRU/IN terminals allows for the simple connection of Cloud Digital Paging Microphones and the addition of four balanced inputs add to the flexibility and increased installer friendliness.
The Z8MK4 is a complete solution for multi-zone, multi function venues. With the ability to accept up to six input sources directly such as Media player, MP3, Hardisc, CD, Video, Satellite etc., the Z8MK4 has been developed to act as a user friendly master control for an entire sound system.
Connecting an LM-2 or LM-2A active module extends the versatility providing additional localised inputs and control allowing designers to provide simple, cost effective solutions to many customers' requirements that are difficult to achieve with other manufacturers' products.
