DSI Card


DSI Card Expand your D-Show or Profile System with additional digital inputs. The DSI (Digital Stage Input) Card is an option for the Stage Rack that adds eight channels of software-controlled and fully recallable digital inputs. Get access to eight inputs either through the card's four two-channel AES/EBU XLR connectors or its ADAT TOSLINK optical connector.

You can install up to six DSI Cards into a single Stage Rack for a total of 48 digital input channels, or mix and match with other Stage Rack option cards to customize your input.


  • Eight digital input channels through four two-channel AES/EBU XLR3-female connectors, or a single ADAT TOSLINK optical connector
  • Word Clock Out connector for synchronizing external digital devices
  • Automatic sample rate conversion (SRC) and detection on input; manually defeatable for lowest possible input latency
  • SRC status LEDs for both AES/EBU and ADAT connections
  • Lock status LEDs for both AES/EBU and ADAT connections
