• Plug & Play technology.
• Precise, sample-accurate, playback synchronization, even with several switch hops.
• Extremely low and deterministic delay across the whole network.
• Scalable and flexible network topology supporting a large number of audio transmitters and receivers.
• Operates in a single integrated network for audio, video, control and monitoring. Compatible with other kinds of traffic when QoS is managed.
• Supports 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps network links.
• Uses low cost, “off-the-shelf” network equipment.
• Resolution 24-bit, 48 kHz sampling rate.
