PR&E World Feed Panel

The PR&E World Feed Panel (HRS-WFPII-USB) is a 3RU audio interface panel suitable for rack or cabinet side-wall mounting. It allows quick temporary connection of portable audio devices into the “House System” (a PR&E audio console, VistaMax audio management system, or other permanentlymounted studio gear).

All common connector types (RCA, 3.5 mm TRS, XLR, and XLR combo) at the appropriate consumer or pro signal level allow any audio gear to be plugged in for immediate playback and or recording. A “stereo” USB connector (USB 1X1 I/O) allows a laptop or other USB audio device to alternately be connected for the same purpose.

The World Feed Panel includes A-D and D-A converters, an active USB interface, and both analog and digital I/O for the “House System.” Board jumpers set up how the analog and/or digital signals connect to/from the “House System.” Three Decora® compatible wall plate cutouts (with blanks) are included for installing compatible accessory panels (available from vendors like RDL, StudioHub, Leviton, and Hubbell).

The WFPII-USB panel has XLRF combo jacks (for XLR or TRS plugs), mini-stereo TRS (for 1/8” or 3.5mm plugs), RCA jacks (for unbalanced consumer devices as well as S/PDIF digital connections), and a USB connector to allow convenient connections by any portable audio device (such as handheld audio recorder, laptop computer, DJ Coffin, band mixer, or musical keyboard).
