Overview

16-channel AES3 I/O for Dante audio over IP networks

RedNet D16R AES is a 1U, 19in rack-mount Dante interface featuring 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from the Dante audio network. Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3-equipped audio equipment and any Dante network, RedNet D16R has SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) on each input pair allowing plug-and-play operation with any AES3 source. Word Clock I/O and DARS (Digital Audio Reference Signal) connections allow synchronisation with a wide range of external sources and hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players. The D16R features a rugged, roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality, with Ethernet and power supply redundancy for maximum reliability. In addition, the unit offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor.

RedNet D16R

Key Features

  • 16 Channel bi-directional RedNet AES3 Interface for Dante Networks
  • Power supply and Ethernet redundancy with auto switchover in case of failure, and locking etherCON network connectors.
  • Sample rate conversion allows external equipment to run at any sample rate
  • Compact 1U chassis allows maximum functionality in minimum rack space
  • Two 8-channel AES59 combined I/O DB25 connections, plus a pair of XLR3 connectors duplicating channels 1 & 2
  • Rear panel XLR input connector either be used as a DARS input or as a traditional AES3 audio input
  • S/PDIF input and outputs provided on RCA connectors; ideal for connecting CD players or solid-state recorders
  • Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows synchronisation of the Dante network  to house clock, or syncing external equipment to the Dante network
  • Comprehensive remote control software with powerful graphic user interface

Front Panel Indicators

Primary PSU (A)

Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present.

Secondary PSU (B)

Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present.

Primary Network

Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on primary port when in redundant mode. When in Switched mode, a valid network connection at either Primary or Secondary network port will cause this LED to illuminate.

Secondary Network

Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on secondary port when in redundant mode. Not used in switched mode.

Network Locked

Green LED. When unit is network slave, shows valid network lock. When unit is network master, shows lock to indicated clock source. Flashing indicates external clock is selected but not connected.

Sample Rate

Orange LED for each: 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, x2, x4.

Pull Up/Down

Orange LED. Indicates unit is set to operate on a Dante pull up/down domain.
