Standard Equipment Components

The standard Journey Connect configuration consists of a video rack, an audio rack, and a network rack. An additional audio rack may be added, if needed.

Once connected to the internet, most of the equipment can be configured remotely by Journey engineers, so you can concentrate on your production, while we handle the technology.

This standard configuration can be easily modified to meet your specific production requirements.
