- Compact 1RU design for portable and fly-away broadcast applications - Rapid bootup for fast deployment - Expandable confidence monitoring with mixing of up to 256 channels across 4 x networks - High resolution screen with clear metering and quick source touch screen navigation - Separate Mic and AES inputs - AES output and headphone - Separate Dante and Ravenna versions or mix formats to monitor across mixed AoIP networks.
A 1U 19inch rack mounted AoIP monitoring and mixing unit. 4 models are available the RL64, RL128, RL192 and RL256 and each unit can be configured at time of purchase to be Dante or Ravenna RL Series units allows two modes of operation a mixing mode which can mix up to 256 channels at 48kHz (128 channels at 96kHz) plus microphone input (via headphone connector) and AES input to create a 259 into 2 mixer. Alternatively, it can be set into a simple Listen mode where touching a channel instantly routes to the LR output and cancels any previous selection. The outputs of the LR bus are presented to the user via the inbuilt 4mm x 9mm full range speakers or via the 3.5mm headphone jack. The speakers are automatically muted when a headphone jack is inserted. Simultaneous outputs are also available in the form of the stereo balanced line outputs and AES output accessed via XLR connectors on the rear of the RL Series Unit. The mix output is also routed to the AoIP output.
The RL Series units are operated and controlled via the large letterbox 6.6” diagonal (168mm) 1440 x 240 24-bit colour LCD and capacitive touch panel.
A simple and elegant menu system has been designed to be intuitive to navigate allowing the user to access all the features of the RL Series unit very quickly. The high-resolution screen is easy to read presenting comprehensive metering, routing and status information to the user.
Firmware updates of the RL Series unit are achieved via a dedicated USB micro AB connector on the front panel. There is also a dedicated 3.5mm jack socket for the headphone output
On the rear of the RL Series unit there are 4x Primary and Secondary ports for up to 4x AoIP inputs. 2x balanced line outputs on 3 pin male XLRs and AES output also on 3 pin male XLR. These outputs can be configured to follow the main volume settings of the speakers/headphones or they can also be set to follow the main Mute control. Additionally, there is an AES input via 3 pin female XLR connector The RL Series unit can be powered via either of the two 2.5mm DC input connectors requiring 24V @ 2A. These inputs also have a screw lock to prevent accidental unplugging. Using both inputs provides redundancy. The optional NIX00629 can be used to power the RL256
