Offload Video Playback to a Satellite LE System!

Digidesign's Video Satellite LE is an affordable solution for any Pro Tools|HD studio working with video projects. With Video Satellite LE, you can easily offload CPU-intensive video playback functions onto a second computer running Pro Tools LE with an MBox 2 Micro, reclaiming that processing power to run essential plug-ins and virtual instruments. The two systems connect via Digidesign's proprietary Ethernet protocol, allowing for faster lockup time than 9-pin and tighter synchronization than MIDI Time Code. You'll also get loop playback - a huge feature at this affordable price point - with Digidesign Video Satellite LE.

Digidesign Video Satellite LE at a Glance:
  • Offload Pro Tools|HD video tasks to an LE system
  • Connects via Digidesign's proprietary Ethernet protocol
  • Maintain transport control from the linked system

Video Satellite LE is a tremendous solution for Pro Tools|HD users handling CPU-intensive picture tasks. Now, you can connect your HD system to a compute running Pro Tools LE and offload those processing tasks to the second computer. With the considerable extra CPU power, you can then run additional virtual instruments, RTAS plug-ins, and more.
