Focusrite RedNet HD32R Pro Tools Bridge
32 Channel Bridge between Dante Networks and Pro Tools|HD
RedNet HD32R is a 1U, 19in rack-mount Dante interface that allows Pro Tools|HD users direct access to the full benefits of the Dante digital audio networking system, including its uniquely flexible network topology and premium quality audio interfaces. The Pro Tools system is connected to the HD32R via standard Mini DigiLink ports.
The Focusrite RedNet HD32R is a 1U 19” rack-mount Dante interface that gives Pro Tools|HD users uninterrupted access to all the benefits of the Dante digital audio networking system, incorporating its matchlessly flexible network topology and high quality audio interfaces. The Pro Tools system is connected to the HD32R via standard Mini DigiLink ports.
Dual Ethernet ports with locking etherCON connectors are supplied, with multiple operating modes like daisy-chaining and redundancy, each affirmed by indicators sitting on the front-panel. Separate power input sockets (with retaining clips) are situated on the rear of the unit with two autonomous power supplies, alongside fault detection capability, included. Power state is displayed both remotely and on the front panel. The HD32R features a robust, roadworthy exterior complimented by premium internal build quality. On top of that, the unit’s blueprint is unbelievably condensed - a compact 1U rack-mount form factor.
Focusrite’s RedNet was the first bridge of its kind to deliver IP networked audio interfaces for recording studio, education, live sound and broadcast workflows, blending superb audio interfaces with the tried and tested dependability of the Dante Ethernet-based audio networking system from Audinate.
Dante networking offers a potent amalgamation of features, making it perfectly suited to any Pro Tools|HD production environment. Focusrite’s excellent DC-coupled mic preamplifiers and meticulous digital conversion maintain the very highest audio quality I/O, while Dante’s Ethernet-based audio networking technology completely negates the need for complex, bulky and expensive analogue multiway cables. Connected to Pro Tools|HD with RedNet HD32R, audio interfaces can be handily situated anywhere an Ethernet port is available.
