Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE Audio Networking card
Vendor: Allen & Heath
Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE Audio Networking card, 96kHz, 128x128, dual redundancy, OpticalCon connectors (dLive)
dLive Audio Networking Card
There are several audio networking options that can be fitted to any Allen & Heath dLive I/O Port and Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE is one of those audio networking card. Over multimode fibre optic or CAT cable, this Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE provides a 128x128ch 96kHz point-to-point link to another dLive system. It can be also used as a converter replacing the MixRack to Surface linke with fibre optic.
The Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE is working as an ideal solution for digital splits and audio distribution in installations and large scale events, with 500m cable runs and industry standard connectors. The inputs of a dLive system are sent to a second system, that's a typical Mon/FoH configuration, where independent trim, mixing and processing is applied.
The Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE is the company's proprietary protocol for transporting Control and Audio over Ethernet. The Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE allwos cable redundancy and very low latency without any audio dropout. The Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE can also tunnel the dLive IP/TCP control network over the same connection, just an example of using a single laptop to enable control of two systems.
The Allen Heath M-DL-GOPT-A FiberACE is not requiring any computer for the setup of fibreACE connections making it a truly plug 'n play protocol. With just a simple ways: just simply plug the cable between any two dLive systems and set the patch and clock settings on the mixer, directly.
