Digigram PCXpocket v3
Large images ..Available from 11/30/1999 until 11/30/1999
In 1997, Digigram PCXpocket was the first Type II PC Card for professional audio applications on a laptop. Digigram now offers you a choice Pocket cards with a range of processing power levels and audio interface configurations.
Our latest generation stereo model, the PCXpocket v3 has both analog and digital inputs and outputs and provides the finest portable audio quality with its 24-bit converters. Significant on-board DSP enables the PCXpocket v3 to manage a variety of Digigram Powered (np SDK) applications, including those that can take advantage of its LTC (SMPTE) time-code input for synchronization. These applications can perform their audio processing on the PCXpocket v3, instead of on the computer's native processor.
The PCXpocket v3 is also compatible with PC software that operate under Microsoft's WAVE protocol and run on the laptop's processor. It has two balanced analog mono inputs at microphone or line level and two balanced analog outputs. SPDIF input and output allow direct digital transfer. A break-out cable is provided with XLR connectors for the analog inputs/outputs, phono (CINCH) connectors for the digital input/output, and a phono connector for the LTC input.
The three Digigram PCXpocket cards are designed primarily for specialized Digigram Powered applications that are written by our development partners to run on the cards' on-board digital signal processors. For standard third-party audio and music production software on Windows or Mac OS platforms, the Digigram VXpocket should be considered.
