RockNet is a digital real-time audio network designed to provide up to 160 digital audio channels over a single counter-rotating CAT-5 ring.
Based on a redundant ring topology, RockNet is designed to form a self-healing network with no loss of audio in case of a connection fault between two devices.
The RN.345.IL card fits into any iLive MixRack Port B expansion slot and provides an interface to 64 input and 64 output channels, A&H says. A rotary switch on the front panel sets device identification and selection of up to 15 programmable routing tables. The RN.345.IL enables the iLive mixing system to become part of the RockNet digital audio network
Using RockWorks running on a PC/Mac is it possible to provide the engineer with unique Independent Gain per channel, the company says. Independent Gain allows several network locations to operate with the same mic pre-amps without affecting each other. This is designed to make multi-system and recording set ups very convenient, especially when combined with the iLive digital input trim.
