Focusrite RedNet D16R 16 Channel AES3 Dante I/O Interface with Redundant Network & Power

The Focusrite brings a RedNet D16R sixteen-channel AES3 I/O for Dante Audio over IP networks. It is a 1U, 19" rack-mount Dante interface which is featuring sixteen-channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from the Dante audio network. The Focusrite D16R is appropriate for keeping a bridge between power amplifiers, digital console or any Dante network. 

The SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) is included in the RedNet D16R on each input pair permitting plug-and-play operation with any AES3 source. Digital Audio Reference Signal and word clock I/O connections permit synchronization with a broad-range of external sources and hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment like CD, digital, or solid-state recorders/players. 

The Focusrite D16R is featured with PSU and Ethernet redundancy along with dual locking etherCON Ethernet ports offered with several operating modes, including daisy-chaining and redundancy confirmed by front-panel indicators.

  • 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 synchronization of the Dante network to house clock, or syncing external equipment to the Dante network
  • RedNet Control and Dante control software allow routing and control from your audio computer system via a software control panel - no hardware patching required
  • 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.
  • Two etherCON 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 seamless switchover in the case of network failure, or as a daisy-chain port allowing the connection of multiple units.
  • The front panel provides status information for the unit, such as clock source, sample rate, primary and secondary network connection, and power supply status, in addition to signal presence for each of the AES3 pairs
  • All the clocking and input/output options of RedNet D16R AES are remotely-controlled by the RedNet Control software application for Mac and Windows.
