Here's the info in detail from their press release...
Digital Stage Input (DSI) and Digital Stage Output (DSO) Card Options
The new DSI and DSO card options for the VENUE live sound environment extend the system’s flexibility by offering additional digital input and output options for the Stage Rack. Engineers can use these cards to integrate a wider range of digital peripherals and components than previously possible.
A single DSI card provides eight channels of digital input for the VENUE Stage Rack, either through four AES/EBU pairs on individual XLRs or via a single ADAT optical interface. A single DSO card offers eight channels of AES/EBU outputs across four discrete XLRs as well as eight channels via the ADAT optical interface. The DSO keeps both AES/EBU and ADAT connections active at all times, creating a digital split with the AES signals mirrored to the ADAT connection. DSI Features
  • Eight channels of digital input for the Stage Rack
  • Four AES/EBU pairs on individual XLRs, and a single ADAT optical interface
  • Inputs integrate with a range of digital peripherals and components, including digital audio workstations, sound effects playback devices, mic preamps, and format converters
  • Input source selection (AES or ADAT) via software
  • Ability to connect any digital source with sample rates from 32 to 96 kHz
  • Software bypass of onboard sample-rate converters, allowing for lower latency pass-through
  • Complete compatibility with the existing VENUE system—no additional hardware is required
  • 75-ohm BNC Word Clock output for synching external source devices to D-Show
DSO Features
  • Eight channels of digital output for the Stage Rack
  • Four AES/EBU pairs on individual XLRs, and a single ADAT optical interface
  • Simultaneous output of both AES/EBU and ADAT lightpipe audio
  • Direct digital connection to a range of digital peripherals and components, including digital speaker processors, power amps, powered speakers, digital audio workstations, and format converters
  • 48 kHz output sample rate
