The Soundcraft Compact Stagebox offers a high density of I/O connections in only 4U of rack space. The modular unit is configurable but is offered with a standard configuration of 32 mic/line inputs, 16 line outputs, and 2 expansion slots for standard Vi Local Rack I/O cards. These D21m option cards allow connection to most popular digital formats, including CobraNet, AVIOM A-Net16, Ethersound, ADAT, RockNet, Blu Link, and Dante. A MADI recording interface can also be fitted to the expansion slots. It is possible to equip the Compact Stagebox with an additional 16 mic/line input XLR module instead of the output module, providing 48 inputs. In this case, analogue or AES outputs could still be obtained on D-Type connectors via D21m cards fitted to the expansion slots. The upper section of the stagebox is reconfigurable with a choice of 16 channel I/O modules: 16 mic/line inputs; 16 line out; 8 line out + 8 AES out; 16 AES in + 16 AES out.
The Compact Stagebox is connected to the host console using either CAT5 or Optical-fiber MADI, the same way as the larger 64 Mic/line Vi6 Stagebox is hooked up, and shares the same redundant MADI cable capability. plus twin redundant power supplies, thermostatically-controlled fan cooling and full LED status monitoring. An 8-channel GPIO interface is also provided.
