Alpha-Link LIVE-R is a versatile, low cost, high quality, fixed configuration audio converter unit. It can be used to provide local or remote I/O for both C100 HDS and C10 HD consoles or alternatively as a stand-alone format converter. Each Alpha-Link LIVE-R unit provides 24 balanced analogue inputs and outputs (with high-quality 24-bit analogue conversion) and 12 AES input and output pairs (with eight channels of 24-bit sample rate conversion). Alpha-Link LIVE-R connects to the console using fully redundant MADI over fibre to ensure absolute signal integrity and with embedded Control data, remote control of IO parameters from the console is achieved with the minimum of cabling. Alpha-Link LIVE-R includes redundant PSUs, all fitted into a compact 2U rack.
Alpha-Link LIVE-R can also be used as a stand-alone format converter for a wide range of applications. In stand-alone mode all input and output channels can be used simultaneously in any configuration. When used as a stand-alone converter the front panel controls for Alpha-Link LIVE-R are used for format conversion configuration.
