The DIT Station on the road

WHAT IS DIT BOX?

The primary goal of DIT BOX is to fit all the essential live grading tools for up to 4 cameras all in a case that can easily be packed into remote locations. The DIT BOX utilizes the light weight Pelican Air 1535 case. The case is modified on the backside to accommodate Neutrik D-Series connectors and a 120mm fan. The DIT BOX has a pull out machined aluminum frame that helps keep mounted electronics cooler and allows for easy access when service is needed.

The secondary goal of DIT BOX is to have the freedom of powering the box off either AC or DC for maximum freedom!  When using the CalDigit TS4+ or TS3+ and a 5x Ethernet Switch this allows for control of all internal devices via the Macbook Pro’s single Thunderbolt 3 port. The TS4+ also allows for up to 98 Watts of on-board charging for M1/M2 Apple laptops.

Supports Apple Silicon and Intel Macbook Pro laptops
