RedNet 5 is the latest addition to the RedNet family of networked audio interfaces from Focusrite. Here's what they have to say about it...
Connecting to your Pro Tools HD system via DigiLink, RedNet 5 allows you to use the low-latency performance of your Pro Tools HD cards alongside RedNet's audio interfaces to configure a powerful and flexible recording and mixing system, while maintaining your traditional workflow. RedNet boasts excellent sound quality with a dynamic range of 120dB throughout the system. Coupled with its scalable architecture -- which communicates using super-fast, rock-solid Gigabit Ethernet technology -- it enables studio users to add the full benefits of RedNet to their Pro Tools HD system.
RedNet 5 connects directly to Pro Tools HD cards via conventional DigiLink cables and supports up to 32 channels of simultaneous inputs and outputs. To achieve even higher channel counts, multiple RedNet 5s can be connected to additional Pro Tools HD cards. You can assign any available audio source or destination on the RedNet network to RedNet 5 with the drag-and-drop RedNet software control panel, and channel assignments appear in Pro Tools exactly as they would with any other HD-compatible audio interface. What's more, you retain access to all your TDM plug-ins and saved sessions while at the same time enjoying the superb quality of RedNet's audio interfaces and the ability to build the most sophisticated of audio production systems around a single, standard Gigabit Ethernet network.
