The DirectOut EXBOX.BLDS MADI redundancy switch is a powerful and robust solution for production environments with advanced reliability requirements. Our goal was to create a tour ready, practical accessory that offered EXBOX.BLDS users the ability to remotely monitor and control input selection. The result was the EXBOX.CTRL.

Aesthetically, we drew inspiration from the sleek appearance of the EXBOX.BLDS. The board was designed to minimize the device footprint and the unit is enclosed in a laser cut, black acrylic case. A translucent top glows green or red to indicate the current active input. A Cherry-MX mechanical key yields a solid and reliable switching experience, enhanced by proprietary onboard customized software that provides active debouncing.

The EXBOX.CTRL is the perfect EXBOX.BLDS add-on for redundancy-conscious production environments.
