Avid has announced the availability of VENUE 5.5, a new software update for VENUE | S6L mix systems. Updates include support for the Stage 16 remote I/O box for S6L and new control surface capabilities.
Previously available for use solely with VENUE | S3L-X systems, the Stage 16 box provides 16 analog inputs, eight analog outputs, and four digital outputs, making it an option for expanding or distributing I/O across. Up to four Stage 16 and two Stage 64 boxes can be used simultaneously to support up to 192 analog inputs.
VENUE 5.5 also adds a meters view as well as system and troubleshooting buttons on the master touch screen for all three control surface configurations. This feature provides users with a continuous view of channel metering across all S6L console screens as well as quick access to run system tests and more, directly from the control surface.
Avid VENUE 5.5 software will be made available to download at no charge for all VENUE | S6L customers with a valid Avid Advantage Elite Live support contract. Find out more here.
