Work Pro Audio – the A/V brand of the Equipson Group – has announced the WNS-8P, an eight-port Ethernet switch for live, installation and integration A/V applications.

Work Pro Audio WNS-8P‘Network technology is a fundamental component of the modern A/V industry, but for some time, our A/V customers have been making us aware what a headache it can be to configure Ethernet switches designed for use in standard data networks, not A/V applications,’ says Equipson CSO, Juan Jose Vila, ‘We realised there was a requirement for a switch designed specifically for A/V installation professionals, and so the WNS-8P was born.’

Housed in a standard 19-inch rack, the WNS-8P offers Power Over Ethernet (PoE) on each of its standard Ethernet connectors, is compatible with RJ45 and etherCon connectors, and can be configured using a simple web-based interface. Compatible with Work Pro Ethernet-based A/V solutions, including the BlueLine range (all of which can now be powered via the switch’s PoE connectors), ArtNet/sACN nodes and the recently launched LightShark range of lighting consoles and associated expanders, the WNS-8P is intended to have industry-wide appeal, bringing together Ethernet-based AV hardware from many manufacturers and forming the basis of (for example) Dante or DMX streaming networks.
