D2-Rack : Overview
The D2 Rack is the latest addition to the range of high sample rate racks. The compact 9U D2 rack has a fixed format 48 inputs with 16 outputs fitted as standard. The output count can be increased to 32 by populating the 2 spare 8 channel output slots with one or more of the 3 option modules – Line out , AES out or Aviom out (uses both slots).
The 48 inputs can be specified as either 48 mic in or 24 mic/24 AES in.
As standard, there are 2 MADI Ports, available either as BNC or DiGiCo CAT5E connections that are available on the SD9 and SD11. These ports allow rack sharing at 48K between any two SD Series consoles or digital splits for recording. When running at 96K, these two ports combine to create a single high definition 96K MADI connection with no reduction in IO.
The D2 rack has dual redundant power supplies as standard with LED indicators on the front panel.
The SD Rack style menu system allows for customised rack settings and the control and activation of the D2 Rack’s internal oscillator.
