RedNet D16 AES is a 16-channels AES/EBU interface for Dante audio networking with Ethernet redundancy.

RedNet D16 AES

The 1U-high 19-inch rackmount interface unit is intended for linking any AES3 equipped audio equipment and a Dante network using sample rate convertors provided on each input pair. Word clock and Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) connections support synchronisation with a wide range of hardware, while SPDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid-state recorders/players.

Two DB25 connectors each provide eight channels of combined I/O to the AES59 standard, allowing interconnection with other DB25-connected or XLR-based equipment by use of standard DB25 to XLR cables. The rear-panel XLR female input can be used either as a DARS sync source for the Dante system, or as an AES3 audio source replacing input Channels 1-2 on the DB25 connectors. An XLR male socket provides a duplicated AES3 outlet for output Channels 1-2. The RCA SPDIF input can similarly replace input Channels 3-4 of the DB25 connectors, while the SPDIF output can replicate any adjacent odd/even pair of the 16 output channels.

The two network connectors on the rear of the unit allow two modes of operation – they can be used either as a primary/redundant network interface, allowing seamless switchover in the case of network failure, or as a daisy-chain port allowing the connection of multiple units.

All the clocking and input/output options of RedNet D16 AES are remotely controlled by the RedNet Control software application for Mac and PC.

Key features:

· AES3 connectivity allows connection of external converters, effects units, mixing consoles or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment via Dante
· Dual rear-panel Ethernet connectors allow maximum network reliability with seamless switchover to a standby network. The ports can alternatively be used to daisy-chain additional units.
· Input and Output on XLR as well as DB25
· XLR Input for DARS or Digital Audio
· Rear panel XLR input connector can either be used as a DARS input or as a traditional AES3 audio input
· RedNet Control software allows full routing and control without hardware patching

The RedNet D16 AES carries an MSRP of US$1899.99.
