Connecting Professional Digital Audio Devices
Professional digital audio devices often use balanced XLR connectors. Each XLR
connector carries two AES/EBU digital audio channels. Connect the digital audio
outputs of your video or audio device to your audio interface (or its breakout box). If
your video interface has the appropriate connectors, you can also connect the audio
outputs of your device to the audio inputs on the video interface.
Note: Professional analog audio devices also use XLR connectors, but the signal is
incompatible with AES/EBU digital audio.
