Vi Series is a series of optional interface cards, designed to fit the Local Rack, Compact Stagebox, or in the on-board expansion slots of Vix000 consoles and in some cases also the Vi Stagebox. These cards enable Vi Series consoles to interface directly with a wide range of other systems and audio networks using industry standard protocols.
The 3G SDI card can de-embed up to 16 audio channels from an SDI (Serial Digital Interface) stream, and re-embed them (Embedder/De-Embedder card only) back on to the stream for onward transmission in a broadcast environment, saving high costs of external units and, of course, weight. These channels may be patched in to any input as usual. Two versions of the card are available: de-embed only, or Embed/de-embed.
