Press Release: RDL Digital Audio / Dante™ Networked Audio Interfaces Now Shipping

RDL is pleased to announce the immediate availability of two new digital audio / networked audio interface products. The SF-DN4 Digital Audio to Network Interface and SF-ND2 Network to Digital Audio Interface are part of the SysFlex™ product series. The SF-DN4 converts two left/right digital audio sources to four Dante network audio signals and the SF-ND2 converts two Dante network audio signals to left/right digital audio. The new products are ideal for broadcast and studio applications or anywhere a digital audio / network interface is required.

“We are in a unique position, due to our extensive experience with developing professional digital audio products, to be the manufacturer of choice any time a professional or consumer digital audio format needs to be interfaced with a Dante network,” says Joel Bump, President of RDL.

The SF-DN4 features RDL’s Sure-Lok™ Auto-Recovery Sentinel which provides the highest reliability in digital signal lock. The product supports input sampling rates from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz and automatically detects a valid input on any of the three input jacks: S/PDIF optical, S/PDIF coaxial, or AES/EBU XLR. A yellow front-panel LOCK LED indicates a valid source received without any lock errors.

The SF-ND2 features a switch-selectable output to provide an AES/EBU on XLR or coaxial and optical S/PDIF signals. The switch enables the appropriate output jack and any required electrical and data format conversion.

Both products are PoE powered. Valid PoE power and synchronization to the Dante network is indicated by a green LED visible from the front of the units. The SF-DN4 and SF-ND2 support Dante sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz. Special software is not required to configure the modules. These full-featured products are engineered and manufactured in the U.S.A. for continuous duty in demanding installations.

The SysFlex series is a family of A/V modules providing complex interface solutions at the click of a connector. SysFlex modules provide connectorized interface between data networks and analog and digital audio devices, networked and conventional amplifiers and other application-specific solutions. In RDL’s tradition of versatility, SysFlex modules can be used right where they are needed: Rack-mounted, Surface-mounted, or unmounted. They are light-weight, compact and easy to install with simple, straightforward switch settings and LED indicators. Modules quickly snap into the SysFlex rack mount and each is firmly secured with a single screw. The SysFlex racking system segregates network and power wiring from the audio and digital audio connectors.
