Requests for lower-budget and simpler connectivity options for Studer Vista mixing consoles has has resulted in the expansion of the D21m remote stagebox system with two new models, both with a more fixed architecture.

Studer Vista Compact StageboxThe Studer D21m I/O system is based on card frames, each able to accept a wide range of different audio format cards, and multiple stageboxes can be easily distributed around large facilities.

The Vi Stagebox is a 6U-high unit with 64 analogue mic/line input XLRs and 32 analogue line output XLRs, with the option to replace any of the eight-channel cards with an alternative format such as AES, CobraNet, Aviom or EtherSound. The Stagebox also includes eight channels of GPIO with relay-controlled outputs and features redundant power supplies as standard. A 64x64 Madi HD link is also fitted as standard to connect to the console’s SCore DSP rack, and multiple Vi stageboxes can be connected to provide a larger pool of I/O.

The Compact Stagebox is a 4U-high unit offering 32 analogue inputs and 16 analogue outputs (but can be ordered in other configurations), together with eight channels of GPIO and two standard single D21m option card slots to add SDI and Adat connectivity. The Compact Stagebox also links to the console via a Madi optical connection. The addition of the D21m slots allows multichannel recording feed to be derived via Madi.

The new stageboxes have been unveilied at IBC 2011.
