The DSMC2 REDVOLT Expander offers a removable audio module with two standard XLR connections for most professional audio needs. Each XLR input features a 3-position selector switch to designate the incoming audio signal type: Balanced Line Level, Balanced Mic Level, and Balanced Mic with +48V phantom power. Additionally, a 3.5mm line-level headphone jack lets you sample audio during takes and in playback mode.

The DSMC2 REDVOLT Expander also provides multiple auxiliary power outputs, enabling the use of peripheral camera accessories and more:

• A front-facing 2-Pin 0B LEMO AUX PWR port provides power output up to 3.0 Amps.
• A front-facing 7-Pin 0B LEMO SERIAL port provides power output up to 1.5 Amps. The SERIAL port is ideal for connecting to lens motor drivers.
