    > Embodying the ideal all-digital interface to Pro Tools|HD is the 192
    > Digital I/O™ — a high-definition, 24-bit/192 kHz-capable,
    > multi-channel audio interface specifically designed to facilitate
    > digital input from a variety of sources into the Pro Tools|HD

    > 192 Digital I/O offers the following features:
    >
    > • Supports up to 16 simultaneous channels of AES/EBU I/O at 96 kHz
    >
    > • Supports up to 8 simultaneous channels of AES/EBU I/O at 192 kHz

    > additional channels of ADAT optical or 2 channels of optical S/PDIF
    > I/O
    >
    > • Switchable, real-time sample rate conversion on digital inputs
    > allows easy streaming of digital signals at any sample rate
    >
    > • Word (1x) and Slave Clock (256x) input/output
    >
    > • Expansion Port allows for direct connection of another 192 Digital

    > • High Sample Rate Support In designing the Pro Tools|HD
    > environment, a primary goal was to offer a comprehensive spectrum of
    > sample rate alternatives to accommodate any given application. As a
    > result, Pro Tools|HD supports 192, 176.4, 96, 88.2, 48, and 44.1 kHz
    > sample rates, allowing users to develop new projects with the greatest
    > clarity, or use existing 44.1/48 kHz standards. The comprehensive
    > sample rate support and 24-bit resolution you get with 192 Digital I/O
    > allow you to work with the most common professional digital formats at

    >
    > • More Digital I/O Options With 192 Digital I/O, you get 16 channels
    > of single-wire AES/EBU I/0 (up to 8 channels of dual-wire AES/EBU I/O
    > at 192 kHz), 16 channels of TDIF I/O (up to 48 kHz), 16 channels of
    > ADAT I/O (up to 48 kHz), and two additional channels of AES/EBU or
    > S/PDIF I/O (up to 96 kHz). Access to Word Clock I/O is also featured
    > on the rear of the unit to keep your Pro Tools system in tight
    > synchronization with other digital equipment in your studio
    > environment. What’s more, the digital inputs on the digital I/O cards
    > can utilize the on-board sample-rate converter chips for
    > hardware-based sample-rate conversion, allowing you to stream digital
    > signals — at any sample rate — into your Pro Tools session. For
    > example, one can stream audio from a TDIF-compatible device operating
    > at 48 kHz sample rate right into a 96 kHz Pro Tools session in
    > real-time for further live mixing or processing.

    > • Faster, Flexible Configurations Pro Tools software supporting Pro

    > auto-configuration scheme initiated upon launch of the application.

    > Q&A
    >
    > Q: Can the 192 Digital I/O be expanded with additional 192 Expansion
    > Cards?
    >
    > A: No.
    >
    >
    >
    > Q: Can I insert 192 AD or DA cards in place of the digital cards?
    >
    > A: No. The 192 Digital I/O uses a different power supply that is
    > incompatible with the 192 analog cards.
    >
    >
    >
    > Q: Does the 192 Digital I/O support quad-wire AES/EBU configurations?
    >
    > A: No. Only dual-wire for 176.4 and 192 kHz (available on the Digital
    > Card only) or single wire for 44.1 č 96 kHz (all AES/EBU ports).
    >
    >
    >
    > Q: Does the separate 2-channel AES/EBU pair support dual-wire 176.4
    > and 192 kHz?
    >
    > A: No. The 2-channel AES/EBU port on the enclosure supports single
    > wire up to 96 kHz only.
    >
    >
    >
    > Q: Does the 192 Digital I/O support 96 kHz TDIF I/O?
    >
    > A: No. The 192 Digital I/O only supports up to 48 kHz across the TDIF
    > ports at this time.
    >
    >
    >
    > Q: Does the 192 Digital I/O support 96 kHz ADAT optical signals?
    >
    > A: No. The 192 Digital I/O only supports up to 48 kHz across the ADAT
    > ports on the Digital card and the Optical port on the Enclosure when
    > set for ADAT optical mode.
    >
    >
    >
    > Q: Does the 192 Digital I/O support SMUX across the optical ports?
    >
    > A: Not at this time.

    >
    > Q: If a Digital Card fails in the 192 Digital I/O, will the I/O
