Description

RedNet HD32R is a 1U, 19" rackmount Dante interface that allows Pro Tools|HD users direct access to the full benefits of the Dante digital audio networking system, including its uniquely flexible network topology and premium quality audio interfaces. The Pro Tools system is connected to the HD32R via standard Mini DigiLink ports.

Dual Ethernet ports with locking etherCON connectors are provided, with several operating modes including daisy-chaining and redundancy confirmed by front-panel indicators. Two separate power supplies with fault detection capability are included, with separate power input sockets (with retaining clips) on the rear of the unit. Power state is indicated both remotely and on the front panel. The HD32R features a rugged, roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality. In addition, it offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor for a full 32 channels of I/O.

HD32R acts as a 64-channel (32-in/32-out) digital break in/out box, operating in the same way as a standard interface, and supporting a wide range of Pro Tools | HDX and HD cards. Supported Pro Tools systems include Pro Tools | HDX, Pro Tools | HD Native, Pro Tools | HD Native Thunderbolt, and Pro Tools|HD TDM. Up to six HD32R modules can be used with a Pro Tools | HDX system and three with Pro Tools | HD, allowing the maximum channel count for either. Simply connect the HD32R to Pro Tools | HD with standard Mini DigiLink connectors.

HD32R allows the use of the low latency performance of Pro Tools | HD cards, bringing the full benefits of Dante audio-over IP networking and the RedNet product range to a Pro Tools|HD system. The entire range of Dante-compatible products including the superb RedNet analog and digital interfaces can then be used with a Pro Tools | HD system, all connected via Ethernet cable.

From complex multi-room systems to single installations Dante and RedNet offer the ability to create a sophisticated and comprehensive high-quality audio production environment around a standard Ethernet network, with HD32R providing the bridge to any Pro Tools|HD system. Assign any available Dante source or destination via HD32R and it appears in Pro Tools exactly as it would with any other Pro Tools-compatible interface, maintaining traditional Pro Tools workflows.
