Focusrite simplifies audio networking with RedNet D64R MADI Bridge

Focusrite’s RedNet D64R MADI bridge provides an easy-to-use link between a Dante Ethernet-based audio system and any MADI/AES10 network.

MADI is widely used for large-scale digital audio systems, such as audio consoles, conversion and distribution. The technology allows multiple channels to be carried on a single interface. Focusrite's RedNet D64R provides a bridge between a MADI device or network and any Dante Ethernet-based audio network or device.

The D64R supports up to 64 channels of both coaxial and optical MADI interfaces and is completely bi-directional, allowing the use of any Dante components. D64R features a sample rate converter on each input and output allowing interfacing between MADI and Dante irrespective of the sample rate at which either system is operating.

A Dante network can be connected to MADI-based digital consoles, computer cards, converters and much more. In addition to both coax and optical MADI interfaces, RedNet D64R provides Word Clock in and out, PSU and Ethernet redundancy. Dual Ethernet ports are provided, with locking etherCON connectors and several operating modes including daisy-chaining and redundancy confirmed by front-panel indicators. Two separate power supplies, with separate power input connectors, and both with fault detection capability are included.

The D64R comes in a rugged 1RU compact rack-mount with a roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality.
