The versatile Studio Displays are used in many of the world’s recording and postproduction studios. It is a great help in orientation during large projects or dubbing. The imaginative design enhances the professional aluminum frame in black or platinum color and is the perfect size for large or small studios.

Studio Display XT2 displays information from DAW in real time. Displays data such as Timecode, Bars/Beats, Frames and more. The display is made up of multi-colored segments, thanks to which it also displays information about ongoing recording or Preroll. Multi-colour segments during playback timecode are in green, “ready” is in yellow and during recording, all segments turn red. It indicates record start/stop and record-ready/pre-roll/post-roll which is useful for musicians, singers, and other artists as well as dubbing and post-production studios. You can choose red-only for all modes. The device is compatible with a wide range of DAWs such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Reaper and many others. It also works as an MTC Code reader.

    • PunchLight DLi
        is included for the USB connection. This small box has one output for the Display XT2 and two additional outputs for connecting external lights, such as the Recording Display, Lamp, Ring etc. The Studio Display XT2 is hooked up to the PunchLight DLi via a six-wire cable, terminated at both ends using RJ12 phone-connectors. This cable is supplied in the standard length of 10m. For other lengths please check with us.
      • The Studio Display XT2 has seconds added to the clock. In addition, Time is now continuously backed-up by an internal battery, so the clock is still set when the unit is turned off or disconnected from the power supply.
      • All functions from the previous version have been kept: it displays timecode, time, or samples & bars. The remote control can turn off the last two segments, switch between dots or colons, filter MTC, switch the display between “Pro Tools” or other audio applications (“Generic”), and set overall brightness. You can still send custom messages from your computer to the display – using the remote.
