Avid Unveils VENUE SC48 Remote Digital Live Sound System, Stage 48 Remote I/O Box, and VENUE 3 Software

New remote I/O option and software features further enhance the flexibility and power of popular SC48 live sound console

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Avid® (NASDAQ: AVID) today announced the VENUE SC48 Remote System, a compact digital live sound system that delivers the revered sound quality, deep Pro Tools® integration, and direct plug-in support of the award-winning VENUE SC48, now with remote I/O functionality for increased flexibility. Consisting of the SC48 console and new VENUE Stage 48 remote box, Ethernet Snake Card, and VENUE 3 software, the SC48 Remote System is an alternative to the all-in-one SC48, enabling engineers to place the I/O away from the console and closer to sources for optimal sound. And with fully redundant Ethernet AVB snake connectivity (the first in the live sound industry) over inexpensive, lightweight Cat6 cable, engineers get the utmost reliability—without the bulky cable clutter.

With the new VENUE SC48 Remote System, customers can:

VENUE Stage 48

The Stage 48 remote I/O box will also be available as an add-on option (along with its companion Ethernet Snake Card) to existing SC48 users, enabling them to get more flexibility from their system and:

VENUE 3 Software

The VENUE 3 software upgrade offers VENUE customers many new features, including faster workflows to significantly speed up all aspects of their mixing. SC48 customers will especially benefit, as the software upgrade provides more busses, input processing channels, plug-in slots, and Pro Tools channels than ever. By upgrading, users can:

"Customers are realizing the benefits of networked I/O solutions and are seeking ever more powerful features in compact mixers," says Sheldon Radford, Avid senior product manager. "With the SC48 Remote System, they get the sound, performance, and reliability VENUE systems are known for, plus the flexibility to split up the I/O and place each distribution where needed for optimal sound. They can customize the system to support up to 48 inputs on stage or distribute the I/O to handle a variety of sources on stage, at FOH, and even another location anywhere in the room."

Availability

The VENUE SC48 Remote System, VENUE 3 software upgrade, Stage 48 remote box, and its companion Ethernet Snake Card are all expected to be available worldwide in February 2012.
