Edison, NJ (March 12, 2014)—RCF has issued its newest software release for its RDNet protocol, Version 2.0, which enables remote control and management of RCF’s professional speakers.
Applicable to its proprietary RDNet Control 2 and Control 8 hardware interfaces (controlling a maximum of 64 and 256 devices in subnets respectively), with this platform each RDNet-compatible device has its own built-in communication board, microcontroller and DSP, with the ability to store presets, receive commands and continuously send status information.
RDNet can monitor all the system components and parameters, from the input to the status of each single amplifier and transducer. Having a DSP on board of each cabinet, it is possible to address single cabinets or groups of cabinets with specific presets or modifications of parameters like gain, equalization or delay. The new v2.0 control software includes several new functions (and firmware updates) as well as multiple improvements and adjustments. Additional features of RDNet 2.0 include: redesigned Offline and Online operating mode for a safe system administration; revised mute management logic rules; improved RDNet protocol communication and error correction; Logic ID support for a Faulty device tolerant network operation.
