DiGiCo has announced two new I/O racks — the A164D Wall LCD and A168D Stage — for its 4REA4 processing engine for networked audio in installations at this year’s ISE show in Amsterdam. Both racks bring all the connectivity of the original A164 Wall LCD and A168 Stage, but with the additional advantage of Dante connectivity.

The A164D Wall LCD is a 16-input, four-output input/output expander that uses the Dante network protocol to provide fixed, additional inputs and outputs anywhere on a network. It’s designed for wall or floor mounting. It comes with 16 mic preamps on XLR inputs with phantom power status LEDs and four XLR line outs with direct preamp control from the 4REA4 controller software. It can run at both 48k and 96k sample rates and is AES67 compatible. Primary and secondary Dante ports come with locking EtherCON connectors and can run in both redundant and switched mode. All LCD labels are dimmable and can be customized using Dante controller software.

The A168D Stage is a portable 16-input, eight-output I/O Expander, again using the Dante network protocol to provide additional I/O anywhere on a network. It comes with 16 mic preamps on XLR inputs with Phantom Power status LEDs and eight XLR line outputs with direct preamp control from the 4REA4 controller software. It runs at 48k and 96k and is AES67 compatible. Primary and secondary ports again come with locking EtherCON connectors and can run in redundant or switched mode.
