What is it?A network bridge allowing all Midas digital consoles and Midas digital I/O hardware, Klark Teknik DN9696 High-Resolution Audio Recorders and many other AES50 devices to connect to many different multi-channel digital audio networks.DetailsThe DN9650 incorporates three AES50 ports each supporting 24 bi-directional channels of 24-bit 96kHz audio (72 channels in total). It offers 1:1 channel mapping between AES50 channels and Network Module interfaces together with bi-directional Asynchronous Sample Rate Conversion (ASRC) on every channel - plus bypass facilities. It also includes a user-selectable bi-directional ‘Stop Output Clock if Input Clock fails’ function designed to propagate network failures across ASRC for automatic or manual redundancy switchover.The processor supports operation at 44.1kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz sampling frequencies plus ‘flexible’ third-party interface clock synchronisation options including Network Module Incoming and Outgoing Clocks, Network Module Onboard Clock (with or without Word Clock In synchronisation), Word Clock Input, Word Clock Output and Video Black Burst In (PAL/SECAM/NTSC formats in Standard and High Definition resolutions). The DN9650 offers platform-independent web browser configuration interface software hosted on integrated Linux web server plus an Ethernet Control port for remote computer connection (web browser configuration and software updating).And another thing… DN9650 interfaces are currently available for Audinate Dante, Aviom A-Net, Cirrus Logic CobraNet, Digigram EtherSound and MADI (AES10).
