Flight Case Builds

Front of House Rack

Build a 19" Flight case containing Radio mic receiver, Storage draw, Opsis (and Support PC - Turbot), Packet Switch, Power.

To the wall of a 6U tray attach IEC mains inlet, as well as 2xBNC antenna and 2xRJ45 bulkhead connectors. To the floor of the 6U tray attach the the mains power block. European plug / sockets have been selected because this matches most of our existing wall wart power supplies! The 6 U tray creates the rear wall of the flight case, whilst the equipment (and draws populate the front) The the packet switch should also be attached to the floor of the tray.

Use RJ45 patch cables to connect the packet switch to both ethernet ports on the Opsis 'box' (i.e. Opssis and Turbot), and the 2 bulkhead ports of the tray. Also use BNC patch cables to connect the 8 antenna points on the mic receivers to the antenna distribution system and then connect the antenna distribution system's two outputs to the inside of the BNC bulkhead connectors.

Attach the DI box to the tray. Attach stereo 3.5mm out from the Milkymist IO board (Opsis box) to the input on the DI box (alternatively provide RCA/ 1/4" jack connectors on the tray if milkymist does not support HDMI audio capture through the Opsis). Attach the 6 XLR Male connectors to the wall of the tray. Take 4 to the radio mic receivers and the remaining two to the DI box.
