Soundcraft has extended the range of digital audio transport cards for the Vi, Si Compact and Si1/2/3 series digital consoles.

Soundcraft Vi1Plans are also in place for Dante network cards compatible with Vi, Si Compact and Si1/2/3 series consoles, following an agreement reached between Soundcraft and Dante inventor, Audinate. ‘This agreement is a reflection of Harman’s responsiveness to its customers who want Dante networking,’ says Audinate CEO, Lee Ellison.

To further enhance integration between Harman’s other Professional audio brands, option cards are also in development to provide a simple on and off ramp between Vi, Si Compact and Si1/2/3 series consoles, and the BSS Soundweb London digital audio bus system Blu link. The BSS digital audio bus is integrated into the majority of BSS Soundweb London series products and with the PIP-Blu is available for a number of Crown amplifiers.

Existing expansion cards already available for Soundcraft digital consoles or stage boxes include Cirrus Logic, CobraNet, Madi, Aviom A-Net, AES, Digigram Ethersound, Riedel Communications RockNet, Alesis Adat, SD/HD SDI and Dolby E.

Soundcraft Product Manager Richard Ayres added, ‘Connectivity is an important part of everyone in pro audio’s future; new products must integrate with legacy systems and infrastructure whilst existing products must adapt to emerging technologies. With these announcements we are making it clear that by investing in a Soundcraft console you are assured it will remain future-proof and core to an integrated system.’

One of the pioneers of AVB IEEE 802.1 Harman is an active AVnu Alliance member, and – with the standards now ratified – is aiming to bring AVB full audio networking to the Vi, Si Compact and Si1/2/3 consoles.
