DiGiCo has quickly responded to the changing needs of its customers and developed the new MiNi-DiGiRack, which is designed to give maximum flexibility to DiGiCo's full range of digital mixing consoles. Before digital technology was fully embraced, many engineers wanted to connect a large number of external devices and a typical local rack for a D5 Live had 56 inputs and 56 outputs. Now that engineers have used the console for some time, the tendency is to use its powerful internal effects and processing capabilities, thus negating the necessity for a large local rack.
The 4u high,19-inch rack mount unit houses two power supplies with separate mains connectors and switches. It comes as standard with a MADI pod, or with an optional Optical MADI pod. And the newly designed back plane allows any slot to be either input or output for analog connections, or both in and out for digital connections such as AES/EBU.
