Soundcraft Vi Interface Cards
More option interface cards for the Soundcraft Vi Series Digital Live Sound consoles have been released, expanding the applications of the digital mixer into Broadcast, and adding capabilities for direct recording from the desk, according to the company.
Using the ADAT card, it is possible to connect 2 ports of 8 channels (inputs and outputs) to an ADAT-equipped hard disk or software-based recorder, so 2 cards would enable 32 channels of audio to be recorded and played back almost instantaneously, Soundcraft says.
The SDI and Dolby E cards will be welcomed by broadcasters, as it means the desk can handle the de-embedding of audio channels from within SDI video streams (and re-embedding for onward transmission), and the decoding of up to 8 channels of audio from a Dolby Digital or Dolby E stream. All individual audio channels are then available within the Vi Series' digital patchbay for mixing.
The Dolby E card holds 2 complete decoder sections and is designed to save both space and weight in critical applications such as OB vehicles.
