Burlington, MA (December 18, 2012)—Avid’s recently released Venue Mix Rack has been upgraded with remote i/o functionality via new compatibility with the Venue Stage 48 and Venue Ethernet Snake Card.
Current Venue Mix Rack owners can add I/O functionality to their systems through Avid’s Stage 48 Ethernet AVB remote box via the Avid Ethernet Snake Card option, reportedly allowing users to distribute their system I/O more effectively throughout the performance venue.
Through this change, the Stage 48 remote box will enable users to place the I/O anywhere throughout the performance venue and closer to the stage. I/O cards can be moved from Mix Rack to Stage 48 and customized as needed. Stage 48 features fully redundant, auto-switching Ethernet AVB connectivity, delivering an all-digital connection through dual standard 350 MHz Cat5e cables—at distances up to 328 feet (100 meters) away
For applications where two remote boxes are needed—such as keeping one on stage and another at front of house or close to wireless sources—users can simply connect two Stage 48 boxes to the Ethernet Snake Card to maximize distributed I/O.
