ANAHEIM, California — HARMAN’s Soundcraft has announced additional option cards in the ViSi Connect family for its Vi Series, Si Compact, Si Performer and new Si Expression range of consoles. The first card is a multi-digital interface card offering 16×16 channels of Firewire or USB connection, together with eight channels of optical ADAT, making a very simple recording interface available for these popular consoles.
Also announced shipping very soon are the Dante™ interface card and the BSS BLU link card, the latter providing a simple and convenient interface to any Harman product equipped with the BSS BLU Link digital audio bus, the most recent of which is the dbx PMC16 Personal Monitor System, allowing the console to feed the monitor controllers directly.
