S3 Standalone

Compact Event Master processor

About S3 Standalone

With up to 12 HD inputs and 12 outputs, the S3 Standalone brings the power of the S3-4K processor to your applications that require less capacity. The S3 Standalone removes the linking capability of the S3-4K, but keeps all of the inputs, outputs, and layers. In the field it offers you the same processing performance, image quality and rugged durability. In short: all the tools you need to create a stunning live experience for clearly-defined projects and fixed installs. Being modular and upgradeable, if you need to link, simply install the linking card and the S3 standalone becomes a full S3-4K.
