Roland Systems Group has introduced its RSS S-0808 digital snake, an 8-in/8- out compact, lightweight device that supports multiple power options including battery-power, embedded-powered over REAC and power over Ethernet (PoE). The inputs offer remote-controllable preamps, phantom-power, 24-bit 96 kHz A/D conversion as well as choices of XLR, TRS line and Hi-Z capability (the latter to reduce the need for direct boxes).
The included side-mounting adapter plate reportedly enables IDX V-Mount or Anton Bauer Gold Mount battery systems to be attached to the S-0808. Transfer of both audio and power over Cat-5e cable is possible with the RSS S-4000D splitter and power distributor or the newly announced S-4000M REAC Merge Unit.
