Focusrite RedNet A16R MkII & RedNet D16R MkII
INTRODUCING REDNET A16R MKII& REDNET D16R MKII
 
Updates to popular Focusrite Dante interfaces
 
provide channel level control for all inputs and outputs
 
We are excited to announce the upcoming release of two new products in the RedNet range of Dante-enabled Audio-over-IP interfaces: RedNet A16R MkII and RedNet D16R MkII. Both models share the same feature set as their predecessors, but feature level controls for individual input and output channels. This allows precise calibration of all inputs and outputs, making the process of accurate alignment of connected equipment more straightforward. Changes to levels, in 1dB steps, are made using the included RedNet Control software.
 
New Improvements:
 
• Individual I/O Channel Level Control: Control the individual input and output levels of RedNet A16R MkII & RedNet D16R MkII.
• Precise Level Adjustment: Device profiles for RedNet A16R MkII and RedNet D16R MkII in RedNet Control will feature trim fader for adjusting input and output levels in 1dB increments.
• Dim & Mute Functions: Software controls for dim and mute provide greater flexibility over independent I/O channels.
 
A16R MKII
16x16 Analogue I/O With Independent Level Control
 
RedNet A16R MkII is a 16-channel analogue interface for Dante® networks, with two channels of AES3 I/O. Precision A-D and D-A conversion provides 119dB of dynamic range, flat from 20Hz - 20kHz (+/- 0.15dB). Individual input and output channel level controls allow for precise adjustment of all I/O levels using RedNet Control. With two power supplies and primary and secondary EtherCON network connectors, RedNet A16R MkII is perfect for critical-path applications in recording, post production, live sound and broadcast. Built-in redundancy features allow for silent fail-over in the event of power or network outage, providing reassurance for system technicians.
 
Analogue inputs and outputs are connected through four rear-panel AES59 standard DB25 connectors, while an additional pair of AES3 I/O is provided through male and female XLR for added flexibility. The XLR input can accept DARS signals in addition to AES3. Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows external devices to clock to RedNet A16R MkII, or alternatively allows RedNet A16R MkII to act as a network clock grand master, following an external input.
 
RedNet A16R MkII is well suited to both permanent installation and repeated strike and setup: all connectors lock and remain terminated even under stress, providing worry-free installation and peace of mind once situated in a rack. In addition, all Focusrite Pro products come with a three-year warranty and award-winning customer support.

  • 16 channels of high-quality line-level analogue I/O for Dante Audio-over-IP networks
  • Individual input/output channel level control and calibration available in +/- 1db increments via digital trim fader with mute and dim functions
  • 24-bit precision conversion up to 192kHz
  • 119dB dynamic range, flat from 20Hz – 20kHz, +/-0.15dB
  • Software-selectable +24dBu or +18dBu level alignment
  • AES67, AES70 and SMPTE 2110 compliant
  • Dual power supplies and network connections with full power and network redundancy including locking connectors for maximum reliability
  • Word Clock I/O and DARS input for increased flexibility plus an additional two channels of AES3 I/O
  • Analogue I/O to AES59 standard DB25 connectors
  • Comprehensive front-panel metering and indicators
  • RedNet Control remote monitoring software with powerful graphic user interface
     
D16R MKII 
16x16 AES3 I/O With Independent Level Control

The RedNet D16R MkII is a 16-channel bi-directional AES3 interface for Dante® networks. The 1U rackmount device features individual input and output channel level controls, allowing for precise calibration and control of all input and output levels using RedNet Control. RedNet D16R MkII features power supply and Ethernet redundancy with auto switchover in case of failure.
 
Various connection options make RedNet D16R MkII a flexible addition to any Audio-over-IP system. A pair of DB25 multipin connectors each connect eight channels of AES3 I/O into and out of the interface, while XLR and RCA ports enable two-channel AES3 and S/PDIF connections, respectively, to be made.
 
Sample rate conversion on every input enables external equipment to operate at different sample rates, and DARS signals are accepted on the XLR connector. Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows synchronisation to house clock, or syncing external equipment to the Dante network.
