VENUE D-Show System Components
VENUE D-Show Main and Sidecars are used with one VENUE FOH Rack combined with one or more VENUE Stage Racks.
FOH Rack I/O and Features
The FOH Rack provides the following I/O, processing, and control features for the mix position.
8 pairs of analog I/O for hardware inserts, or for input and output of line-level material from the mix position.
Analog and digital (AES or S/PDIF) 2-Track inputs and outputs.
Monitor outputs for mix position near field monitors.
Intercom mic input
Synchronization and Control I/O
MIDI In and Out ports, providing 16 channels of MIDI input and 16 channels of MIDI output.
Word clock I/O for digital clock synchronization.
USB 2.0 ports for USB disks, iLoks, and other USB devices.
100 BaseT ECx port for Ethernet-based remote control.
Snake connectors to enable primary and redundant (if applicable) connection to the VENUE Stage Rack.
CPU, DSP, and System Drives
FOH Rack houses the CPU, DSP, hard drive and CD-ROM drive that run the VENUE software on your VENUE system. System software is installed at the factory. The CD-ROM drive lets you update or restore your system software, and install compatible plug-ins from their installer discs. A standard FOH Rack includes three Mix Engine cards, which provide DSP for plug-ins and mixing. You can add up to two additional Mix Engine cards, up to a maximum of five.
Redundant Power Supply Units (PSUs)
Each FOH Rack comes with two universal (100V to 240V nominal, 50–60 Hz) PSUs with auto redundant failover and LED status indication.
Stage Rack I/O and Features
Stage Racks are used with an FOH Rack, and provide all stage audio I/O for VENUE D-Show systems. Up to two Stage Racks can be used simultaneously, supporting up to 96 total inputs.
48 inputs with remotely controllable mic preamps and individually selectable phantom power.
8 analog output channels; expandable up to 48 analog or digital outputs per Stage Rack.
Synchronization and Control I/O
Snake connectors to enable primary and redundant (if applicable) connection to a VENUE FOH Rack.
