Focusrite introduces today at ISE 2014 a new RedNet interface that offers 16 digital channels over Dante audio network.

Just like the other RedNet interfaces, the RedNet D16 AES sports a red 19” 1U rackable design. It offers 16 AES/EBU digital channels for interfacing digital consoles, power amps or any AES3 compliant equipment in a Dante audio network. Each pair of inputs includes an sample rate converter and you’ll find BNC connections for WordClock and DARS signals (Digital Audio Reference Signal) via XLR (inputs 1 and 2), S/PDIF digital inputs and outputs as well as 2 DB25 connectors for the 8 digital I/O channels (AES59 compliant).

An XLR Female input on the rear of the unit can be used either as a reference DARS for the Dante system, or as an AES3 audio source. In the latter case, it will replace inputs 1/2 on DB25 connectors.

An XLR output provides a duplicated AES3 out for outputs 1/2. The RCA S/PDIF input can replace inputs 3/4 on the DB25 while the S/PDIF out can be assigned to replicate any adjacent even/odd pair of the 16 output channels.

The RedNet D16 AES provides two Ethernet ports that can be used either as a primary/redundant network interface for quick switch in case of network failure, or cascaded if you wish to connect multiple units.

On the front panel, a display provides information for clock source, sample rate, primary/secondary network connections and AES pair signals.

All the AES I/O sync options can be remotely controlled via the RedNet Control software on Mac/PC.

The RedNet D16 AES will be available in July for the suggested EU price of 1499€ incl. VAT. Visit global.focusrite.com for more info.
