Focusrite - RedNet D64R

RedNet D64R is a 64 channel interface bridging between MADI (AES10) and Dante. With sample rate conversion on all input and output channels, it's simple to add MADI to connect MADI-enabled equipment with a Dante network. Both optical and coaxial connections are provided for MADI, alongside word clock connections, which allow the Dante network to synchronise with other digital audio equipment.

Key features

  • Connects a MADI system and a Dante network seamlessly together.
  • Connect Dante to digital mixing consoles, interfaces and cards that use MADI; or extend a MADI system with RedNet’s versatile, superb-quality audio interfaces and connectivity – or any other Dante compatible devices. 
  • Built-in redundancy with dual locking power and etherCON network connectors. 
  • Supports both coax and optical interfaces – connect simply to any MADI equipment.
  • Slave either the Dante system or MADI streams to an external clock.
  • Supports up to 64 channels of digital audio I/O at standard sample rates (44.1/48kHz) from a MADI system, 32 channels at 96kHz and 16 at 192kHz. 
  • Sample rate conversion (SRC) on each input and output, allowing MADI and Dante systems to operate simultaneously at different sample rates. 
  • Simple 1U rack-mount module with the classic red aluminium faceplate. 
  • RedNet Control and Dante software allow remote routing and control from the audio computer system via a software control panel – no hardware patching required.

Case Studies

AV systems integrator Second Wind Productions installs five RedNet 1’s, one RedNet 2, seven RedNet MP8R’s and one RedNet D64R, creating a comprehensive networked ecosystem for  live and broadcast sound at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena that brings a new level of routing flexibility and sonic clarity.
