Description

Forum LITE has a compact 19” 2U audio engine chassis. A fixed input and output configuration has been defined which is suitable for most usage scenarios. However, several options can still be added, such as AoIP and MADI connectivity, phone hybrids and redundant power supply in tabletop or counter sunk design.

The Forum LITE offers 4-12 freely assignable faders with LED displays, 5 physical routing keys and processing indicators. The monitoring section supports dual zone selectable monitoring (to separate presenter and guest headphone feeds) and includes dual VU and 20 programmable keys to be used for console snapshots, audio routing, remote control of external equipment and more. Snapshot keys allow the faders to support multiple configurations by capturing complete console settings including inputs, routing, processing, outputs and monitoring selections.
The design of the Forum LITE is flexible and allows the console to grow and change with the needs of the station. The chassis can support a variety of fader designs and the motherboard can support a range of input/outputs as shown below. The Forum LITE supports up to 32 mixing buses, in addition to direct input/output routing.
