Get the power and versatility of AVB networking.
We designed StudioLive Series III to be more than a mixer family. It’s a complete audio ecosystem that integrates digital console and rack mixers, personal monitor mixers, AVB networking, and digital stage boxes that interconnect and communicate with each other seamlessly. You can build a system that is tailored to your needs today but readily expandable as your needs evolve over time.
Unmatched routing and future-Proof expandability.
The Series III Ecosystem of products are designed to network reliably and easily. AVB (Audio Video Bridging) is a low-latency networking standard optimized for the time-sensitivity of audio. When combined with the Series III family of products, AVB allows for flexible routing options while also offering a modularity that lets you expand upon your network on a per-component basis as your needs grow.
You may start with a simple setup. For example, in a smaller live performance space, you could employ a StudioLive 16 and an NSB 8.8 Stage Box to create a complete 32-channel mixing solution. Over time, this same network can be expanded upon to add a StudioLive 32 for front- of-house, with the NSB 8.8 Stage Box and your original StudioLive 16 now running monitors. With the help of an SW5E AVB switch and four EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers, each musician will enjoy a tailor-made 16-channel mix of their own creation.
They talk to each other... and listen.
Enjoy remote control of the NSB Stage Boxes' inputs, preamps, and phantom power via your networked Series III console mixer or UC Surface touch-control software for compatible Windows, Mac, iOS®, or Android™ devices. You can also daisy-chain multiple NSB units to get enough connections for bigger shows. And the SW5E will let you connect multiple EarMix 16Ms, and even non-PreSonus AVB-compliant equipment, as long as it's compatible with the AVB spec.
We cut the weight.
PreSonus StudioLive Ecosystem Components are all interconnected via CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable. Among other benefits, this eliminates the need for a heavy, expensive copper snake—and the signal degradation that goes with long analog cable runs. And the SW5E Ethernet Switch lets you connect multiple devices to your network... including more switches. Furthermore, the SW5E offers Power over Ethernet (PoE) to power your EarMix 16Ms without the need for AC adapters.
