Gain Compensation On Every Input.
The NSB 16.8 can provide inputs for any StudioLive Series III digital mixer on an AVB network. NSB-series stage boxes have onboard DSP that provides gain compensation on every input so every mixer on the network can make gain adjustments relative to the level set on the master mixer. In this way, every mixer can adjust the preamp level locally for optimal gain staging.
A Complete Networked Solution.
StudioLive Series III networked products form an ecosystem that is easily expanded and quickly configured. Designed to enhance each other, these products are at the forefront of AVB networking technology. The NSB 16.8 can be used alone or with many other NSB-series stage boxes to add remote audio to one StudioLive Series III digital mixer or multiple mixers on the same network.
