Other features are:

  • Available in console, rack or wall mount versions.
  • Modular design allows for a number of installation configurations that will suit the particular needs of any theatre.
  • Termination Panels can be distributed in the booth according to their logical location. The panels are powered and controlled by the LIN network. This greatly reduces the wire count.
