Complete Computer Control
FOH Rack features an embedded Windows XPe computer platform running VENUE software as the central point of control for the entire system. Windows XPe is known for its robust programming options and renowned reliability. Used in conjunction with Avid’s DSP Mix Engine cards, the computer allows FOH Rack to provide unparalleled headroom for onboard processing with full plug-in compatibility.

Onboard Local I/O
FOH Rack provides a host of dedicated local I/O via the FOH I/O card, which offers local monitor outputs, analog and digital (AES or S/PDIF) 2-track input and outputs, MIDI I/O, eight TRS insert send and return jacks, and a COM input that can handle either microphone or intercom inputs. This local I/O is offered standard, and comes at no expense to mic/line input or output counts.

One Software Platform—Total File Portability
All Avid live sound systems operate under one common software platform—VENUE software, the industry’s easiest yet most comprehensive control software. VENUE software sets new standards in operational efficiency and workflow, giving you instant access to and full control over any function of the system. Just a simple button push on the console or click from the screen gives you access to inputs, outputs, show files, snapshots, patchbays, plug-ins, and more. And because all Avid live systems share this same software platform, you can create and load show files for use on any Avid live system; no need to learn new software or build new show files if you switch consoles or re-scale your system.
