RedNet Education


RedNet is Focusrite's flagship range of modular Ethernet–networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinate's tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system. Ideal for use in educational environments, RedNet brings superb studio grade Focusrite analogue and digital I/O and next-generation Focusrite remote controlled preamps to Dante's robust and reliable digital audio network - providing a scalable, near zero latency audio distribution system that is fully Pro Tools|HD and MADI compatible.

RedNet has been widely adopted in the educational environment, with leading establishments such as the University of Derby in the UK finding it particularly appropriate for the diverse and extensive needs typically encountered in education.

RedNet allows you to build appropriate installations on the fly, combining interfaces as and where they are required and making the best use of limited resources to cover increasingly diverse educational needs. Place the appropriate RedNet interfaces in any room in your facility that has a standard Ethernet port, plug the units into a Gigabit switch, plug that into the wall and you’re done. Interfaces are remotely-controlled from the computer and students can take advantage of the full range of studio equipment in the control room as well as utilising any sonic space in the building with an Ethernet port. Record and distribute audio from and to performance areas, rehearsal rooms or any other room with a standard Ethernet port.

In the past, setting up a recording environment meant linking control rooms with dedicated studio areas via expensive, bulky and hard-to-install multiway cables or by lugging an entire mobile recording system into the performance area. With RedNet all that’s required is an Ethernet path between the control room and the room you want to record in – and increasingly, Ethernet is already installed throughout facilities, meaning set-ups are incredibly quick and easy.

Combining Focusrite’s enviable reputation for high-quality microphone preamps and precision digital audio conversion with the high-speed Dante Ethernet audio networking system, RedNet is the audio interface solution for a sound education.
