Focusrite Bows RedNet D16 Interface

Focusrite has announced its new RedNet D16 AES interface, intended for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3 equipped audio with a Dante network.

Los Angeles, CA (February 5, 2013)—Focusrite has announced its new RedNet D16 AES interface, intended for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3 equipped audio with a Dante network.

The 1U 19-inch rack-mount interface features 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from a Dante audio network, with Ethernet redundancy. It also includes Word Clock and Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) connections to provide synchronization with a range of hardware, while S/PDIF 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 S/PDIF input can similarly replace input channels 3–4 of the DB25 connectors, while the S/PDIF 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 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.
