The RSio64-D will bring ‘significantly’ enhanced flexibility for sound systems that include a Dante audio network, the Yamaha RSio64-D I/O Rack is a Dante/Yamaha Mini-YGDAI card interface provides up to 64 inputs/64 outputs for live sound, broadcast, recording and other professional audio applications.

Yamaha RSio64-DFeaturing four card slots, the RSio64-D I/O Rack is compatible with more than 30 Yamaha Mini-YGDAI cards, allowing a wide range of input/output formats, like AES/EBU or Adat, to be connected to a Dante network. In addition to I/O cards, it accepts processing cards that provide capabilities such as Lake processing and Dan Dugan automatic mixing. Each Mini-YGDAI slot includes a sample-rate converter (SRC) so that devices operating on different word clocks can be connected without causing noise or signal interruptions. Full support for Dante network redundancy (primary/secondary) is provided, as well as an external DC imput for a redundant power supply.

To make the RSio64-D more convenient and easy to use as a format converter and router, presets for seven basic routing patterns are built in, including routing between Mini-YGDAI cards. A rotary switch on the front panel allows direct selection of one-to-one Dante/Mini-YGDAI routing, branched Mini-YGDAI/Mini-YGDAI routing, and other options to suit a variety of applications.

The RSio64-D can also be remotely controlled from Yamaha CL and QL series digital mixing consoles, or Yamaha’s R Remote software application with full matrix patching, so that more complex routing can be set up.

‘Since its introduction in 1998, the Mini-YGDAI format has evolved to encompass a broad range of host devices and cards, with many of our users investing in such equipment,’ says Yamaha PA Department Manager, Ken Hiraoka. ‘The RSio64-D is an innovative solution that not only makes it possible to use that investment on a Dante network, but also enables convenient routing between Mini-YGDAI cards. We expect that the RSio64-D will greatly expand the utility and power of sound systems built around Dante capable products such as the CL and QL series consoles, extending their usefulness across a wider spectrum of applications.’

Shipping of the unit is scheduled to begin in Q2 2015.
