RockNet plug-in card for A&H's iLive system

Riedel Communications, manufacturer of intercom, audio, fiber and radio technology, unveils the new RockNet RN.345.IL network plug-in card for Allen & Heath’s iLive digital mixing system at PLASA 2010 in London.
RockNet is a digital real-time audio network that provides up to 160 digital audio channels over a single counter-rotating CAT-5 ring. Based on a redundant ring topology, RockNet forms 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 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, it is possible to provide Independent Gain per channel which allows several network locations to operate with the same microphone pre-amps without affecting each other. This makes multi-system and recording setups very convenient, especially when combined with the iLive digital input trim.
“Allen & Heath is very pleased that the iLive digital series now provides a module for audio interconnection to the RockNet system,” comments Allen & Heath’s Technical Director, Rob Clark.
