Product Description

Details

RedNet D16 AES is a 1U 19in rack-mount interface featuring 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from a Dante audio network, with Ethernet redundancy for maximum network reliability. Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment and a Dante network.

RedNet D16 AES has a Sample Rate Convertor (SRC) on each input pair allowing instant operation with any AES3 source. Word Clock and Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) connections provide synchronisation with a wide range of hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players.

Features

16 Channel RedNet AES3 Interface for Dante Network

AES3 connectivity allows connection of external converters, effects units, mixing consoles or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment to the Dante audio network

 

Ethernet Redundancy

Dual rear-panel Ethernet connectors (primary and secondary connectors) allow maximum network reliability with seamless switchover to a standby network in the unlikely event of a network failure. The ports can alternatively be used to daisy-chain additional units.

 

Sample Rate Conversion on all input channels

SRC allows external equipment to run at any sample rate, irrespective of the sample rate or clocking of the Dante audio network

 

1U Chassis

Compact design allows maximum functionality in minimum rack space, with a full 16 channels of I/O in 1U. RedNet D16 AES features the standard trademark red anodised front panel

 

Input and Output on XLR as well as DB25

RedNet D16 provides two 8-channel AES59 combined I/O DB25 connections. In addition, a pair of XLR3 connectors duplicates channels 1 & 2

 

XLR Input for DARS or Digital Audio

The rear panel XLR input connector can either be used as a DARS input or as a traditional AES3 audio input, replacing channels 1–2 of the DB25 inputs

 

S/PDIF

S/PDIF input and outputs are provided on RCA connectors; ideal for connecting CD players or solid-state recorders. The input replaces channels 3 & 4 in the DB25 connector while the output can be assigned to replicate any adjacent odd/even output pair

 

Word Clock

Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows synchronisation of the Dante network  to house clock, or syncing external equipment to the Dante network

 

Remote routing and control

RedNet Control software allows full routing and control from your audio computer system via a software control panel – no hardware patching required.
