R&S Clipster Gen4/5/6 Systems: How To Hear Audio On A Clipster Timeline Via A Remote Session

Carlos M. Carmona -

This RSA support guide is intended for Clipster customers who are working remotely and need to monitor audio on their Clipster timeline via a remote session (e.g. remote desktop).

Is there a way to setup a Clipster Gen4/5/6 system, so I can hear audio on my timeline via a remote session?

Clipster only outputs audio via the embedded SDI, AES breakout cables or the 1/4 in headphone analog output jack on the back panel of the system.  

If you need to monitor audio on your clipster timeline via a remote session, you could purchase an inexpensive 1/4" male to 1/8" female stereo headphone adapter and external USB sound card with a 1/8" line in, and then run a short 1/8" male-to-male cable from 1/4" male to 1/8" female stereo headphone adapter into the external USB sound card. 

Here's a few links to some product suggestions.

Please note:  Maintaining and/or verifying crystal sync isn't possible when monitoring audio on Clipster timeline via a remote session due to network latency.  If you need to sync up video and audio tracks on a Clipster timeline via a remote session, we highly recommend that audible and visual head and tail 2 pops are provided in your source masters.   

 

I hope you found this quick how-to guide helpful.  Thanks for stopping by.  Take care and stay healthy.  cmc
