The new unit, launched this morning at ISE in Amsterdam, is a 1U, 19-inch rack-mount Dante interface featuring 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from the Dante audio network. The RedNet D16 has sample rate conversion on each input pair allowing plug-and-play operation with any AES3 source.

Word clock I/O and Digital Audio Reference Signal (DARS) connections allow synchronisation with a wide range of external sources and hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players.

Two DB25 connectors each provide eight channels of combined I/O to the AES59 standard, allowing speedy interconnection with other DB25-connected or XLR-based equipment by use of standard DB25 to XLR cables.

The rear-panel XLR female input can be used either as a DARS sync source for the Dante system, or as an AES3 audio source replacing input channels 1-2 on the DB25 connectors. An XLR male socket provides a duplicated AES3 outlet for output channels 1-2.
