PreSonus has announced the SW5E AVB switch, providing five ports for use in AVB-enabled digital audio networks.

PreSonus SW5EAll of the unit’s ports feature secure Ethercon jacks for compatibility with both standard RJ45 cables and the more rugged Ethercon cables commonly found in audio production houses for live sound – the SW5E can be used to network a StudioLive Series III console with PreSonus’ new StudioLive Series III rack mixers in Stagebox mode or to a StudioLive AI-series console and StudioLive RML-series rack mixer (again as a stagebox). It also can network a StudioLive RML-series rack mixer with a StudioLive CS18AI control surface and is great for cascading two StudioLive RML-series mixers to create a larger system.

TheSW5E can be connected to non-PreSonus AVB-enabled equipment, providing it is compatible with the AVB specification, it is compatible with the SW5E.

Four of the SW5E’s ports can provide Power over Ethernet (PoE), while the fifth is non-PoE for linking to additional switches. Network Link/Activity indicators ensure that network data is flowing properly.

Housed in a rugged, all-metal chassis, the SW5E can be rack mounted using a rack tray (not included). The unit employs an internal power supply with standard IEC connector.

The PreSonus SW5E will be available in late October 2017 at an MAP/street price of US$399.95.
