REAC Optical converter announced

Roland Systems Groups has introduced an optional fibre-optic data converter for the RSS Digital Snakes, and V-mixing system. The RSS S-OPT allows users of the M-400 V-Mixer, and S-1608 and S-4000 Digital Snake systems to extend transmissions distances up to two kilometres. Housed in a robust, half-rack chassis, the S-OPT converts RSS REAC data from Cat5e Ethernet to dual-core multimode fibre. The REC protocol allows the transmission of up to 40 channels of 24-bit 96kHz digital audio.

Each S-OPT unit features Power Link, which allows one S-OPT to deliver electrical power to an adjacent unit in case of power failure, and dust-free Dual-LC OpticalCon jacks from Neutrik.
