The EtherSound Card for Soundcraft Vi Series, designed jointly by Digigram and Soundcraft, is an interface card that allows up to 128 channels of audio (64 inputs/64 outputs) to be connected to the local rack of a Soundcraft Vi Series console via a single Cat-5 connection. One of the advantages of EtherSound in the live sound arena is its extremely low latency.
Inputs and outputs can be patched internally within the console on the console's own routing screens. Digigram's own control software can be used to route signals between different EtherSound enabled devices over a standard Ethernet network. A second Cat-5 connection allows daisy chain or redundant ring topologies, the latter allowing for the network to remain uninterrupted should a cable be broken.
