Default TA3 connectors?

Maybe this isn't quite the place for this thread... More of a location sound issue.

Can anyone explain the use/benefit of TA3 connectors on a field mixer? I'm in need of a mixer that can accept multiple ins that also have direct outs. The Sound Devices 442 is my leading candidate right now, but their direct outs are TA3 connectors. Not sure the use of this, since cameras don't have corresponding ins and recording systems don't seem to either (maybe some DATs?).

I suppose a followup question would be: are there adaptors for TA3 to either XLR or line?

And while I'm at it, can anyone recommend another mixer that might be a better bet... one that has discrete outputs, or even a digital out like ADAT Optical or USB?
