The KT-AES50 network module provides a dual port AES50 digital audio interface, compatible with both the KLARK TEKNIK DN9650 and DN9652 Network Bridges and the MIDAS NEUTRON-NB Dual Network Bridge Expansion Module for the industry-leading NEUTRON High Performance Audio System Engine.
Featuring up to 48 bidirectional channels at both 48 kHz or 96 kHz sample rates, with dual port redundancy in 48 kHz systems, KT-AES50 enables the interconnection of two AES50 networks operating at 96 kHz and 48 kHz respectively, as well as providing expanded AES50 channel counts in either 48 kHz or 96 Hz AES50 networks.
KT-AES50 is designed for simplicity of use, and can operates from the incoming AES50 clock or an external clock via host unit. Panel-mounted LED indicators show the connection status for both AES50 ports.
KT-AES50 is electrically and mechanically compatible with the industry standard Cirrus CM-1 format.
Digital Audio Networking
SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK simultaneously provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use – to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.
KT-AES50 is compatible with all MIDAS digital consoles, audio system engines, digital I/O units, as well as with any other AES50-equipped devices.
The two AES50 ports provide dual redundant connections for 48 bidirectional channels in 48 kHz systems, whilst at 96 kHz sample rate the two ports may be operated independently for a combined total of 48 bidirectional channels. This allows the KT-AES50 module to be clocked from one of the AES50 ports, and the incoming clock is then distributed to the second AES50 port and the host unit via its CM-1 interface.
