A 1U 19inch rack mounted AoIP monitoring and mixing unit.
RL64 Dante unit allows two modes of operation a mixing mode which can mix up to 64 channels at 48kHz (32 channels at 96kHz) plus microphone input (via headphone connector) and AES input to create a 67 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 RL64 Dante. The mix output is also routed to the Dante 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 RL64 Dante very quickly.
The high-resolution screen is easy to read presenting comprehensive metering, routing and status information to the user.

Firmware updates of the RL64 Dante 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 RL64 Dante there is a Primary and Secondary port for the Dante input. 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 RL64 Dante can be powered via either of the two 2.5mm DC input connectors requiring 24V @ 2A or via PoE. These inputs also have a screw lock to prevent accidental unplugging. Using two inputs provides redundancy.
The optional NIX00629 can be used to power the RL64 Dante
