About S3 Standalone

Update August 2021: With the release of the S3-4K empty chassis this S3-4K Standalone configuration will no longer be available once existing stock is consumed (first come, first served) and we will move fully into Build-to-order (BTO). We will continue to build the S3-4K Jr. and the S3-4K Tri-combo configurations.

With up to 12 HD inputs and 12 outputs, the S3 Standalone brings the power of the S3-4K processor to your applications that require less capacity. The S3 Standalone removes the linking capability of the S3-4K, but keeps all of the inputs, outputs, and layers. In the field it offers you the same processing performance, image quality and rugged durability. In short: all the tools you need to create a stunning live experience for clearly-defined projects and fixed installs. Being modular and upgradeable, if you need to link, simply install the linking card and the S3 standalone becomes a full S3-4K.
