360 Systems DigiCart-EX
360 Systems’ DigiCart/EX Ethernet Audio recorder continues a 20-year history as a first-choice for audio spots in television broadcasting. DigiCart/EX is more than an improvement on the original DigiCart concept – it’s a high-performance, Ethernet audio system for integrated audio.
Networked Audio Without The Computer
No computer and no mouse-just the hands-on efficiency of real buttons for all operations. Ethernet Audio is the link to Mac and PC-based audio workstations. Now, audio programs produced on DAWs can be easily played, manually or from automation, with DigiCart/EX. When it’s time to actually move an audio file, it’s many times faster than real-time. Clear and easy to use, DigiCart/EX is designed from the ground up for broadcast professionals.
DigiCart/EX Works the Same As DigiCart II
Anyone who uses DigiCart II will know how to use DigiCart/EX. It offers better displays, better screen messages, and new networking features, but with the same familiar buttons. It’s 100% compatible with earlier DigiCart recorders, plays files produced on them, and uses similar front panel commands.
All earlier DigiCart files can be played-whether Dolby AC-2, 16-bit linear, 44.1 or 48K-so valuable program content and archives can be carried forward. DigiCart/EX can also create new files for use in DigiCart II, letting earlier hardware remain a valid part of a new facility.
New Editing Tools
DigiCart/EX provides a faster way to edit audio. Edits can always be undone, and trim points can be easily changed for a future re-edit of the cut. DigiCart/EX provides clear indications of edit points and the present location within a cut.
