BRIO is a modular I/O unit which can be used with either C100 HDS or C10 HD consoles. It is a 7U modular rack chassis with capacity for 5 audio cards, mixed and matched to provide the number of Mic, Line and AES/EBU inputs and outputs you require, providing up to 256 channels of local IO. The BRIO rack connects to the Blackrock processor using MADI over fibre-optic cable, protecting the audio from interference and degradation so that it reaches the console in pristine condition, even in the harshest environments. Control data embedded in the fibre-optic cabling enables remote control of IO parameters (such as analogue pre-amps) from the console, as well as SNMP diagnostics.
The three card formats available for the BRIO are:
The BRIO comes with temperature-controlled fan cooling and redundant PSU as standard, with MADI links configurable to provide fibre-optic redundancy.
