Compact 64 channel Dante Audio Monitor by Nixer: RL64

The Nixer RL64 is a 1U 19inch rack mounted Dante monitoring and mixing unit capable of mixing up to 64 Dante channels!

Nixer_RL64_monitormixer_TEVIOS

In mixing mode, mix up to 64 Dante channels at 48kHz or 32 channels at 96kHz. Plus, the microphone input (via a headphone connector) and AES input create a 67 into 2 mixer. In listening mode, simply touch a channel to instantly route to the LR output and cancel the previous selection.

Nixer_RL64Dante_menu_TEVIOS

The LR bus’ outputs are presented via inbuilt 4mm x 9mm full range speakers or via a 3.5mm headphone jack. The speakers automatically mute when a headphone jack is inserted. Simultaneous outputs are available thanks to the stereo balanced line outputs and AES output, accessed on the rear of the RL64 Dante via XLR connectors. The mix output is routed to the Dante output as well.

Control the RL64 with the intuitive navigation menu on the 24-bit color LCD and capacitive touch panel. This high-res screen presents comprehensive metering, routing and status information.

Nixer_RL64_rearpanel_TEVIOS

The rear of the RL64 Dante features 2x balanced line outputs on 3 pin male XLRs and AES output on 3 pin male XLR. Configure these outputs to follow the main volume settings of the speakers/headphones or set them to follow the main Mute control.

Nixer Adopts Merging ZMAN OEM solution for RAVENNA

Nixer Pro Audio uses Merging ZMAN OEM solution for Ravenna!

Nixer_RL256_Ravenna_TEVIOS

The Nixer RL Series easily caters to both Dante and RAVENNA network protocols. Merging ZMAN is pin compatible with the Audinate Brooklyn 2 board. Additionally, it offers high channel counts. This is important because the RL Series covers 64 to 256 channels from a single operator position, depending on the model.

The RL Series is automatically ST2110 compatible with ZMAN. Nixer’s next target is to include NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 later this year, plus a remote-control option using iPad via Wi-Fi.

The RL series comes in a 1RU 19″ enclosure with redundant power supply sockets. The panel also features the analogue outputs, AES3 I/O and Ethernet posts (appropriate number to represent the number of channels in the individual models). Monitor on internal or external speakers or headphones. The high-resolution touch screen provides comprehensive metering and status information.

All RL models operate at 44.1kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz.

Contact us for more information about Nixer using Merging ZMAN OEM solution for RAVENNA.

Mix & Match Dante and Ravenna ports on Nixer RL Series

The RL Series 1U Rack Mount AoIP Monitoring Tool & Mixer by Nixer allows users to mix & match Dante and Ravenna ports on the same unit.

Nixer_RL256_Ravenna_TEVIOS

For instance, use 1 Dante port and 1 Ravenna port on an RL 128. Or use two of each on the RL256. However, it’s not mandatory to mix & match. Simply use all Dante or Ravenna ports in a single rack unit product.

The new RL Series concept offers four different models: RL64, RL128, RL192 and RL256. Each model has two modes of operation, mixing and listening. Mix up to 256 channels at 48kHz (128 channels at 96kHz), plus microphone input and AES input. Listen by selecting a channel and routing to the LR output.

Nixer Joins RAVENNA Community

Nixer Pro Audio recently became part of the Ravenna Partner Program!

Responding to customer requests, Nixer designed their RL-Series of 1U rack-mounted AoIP mixing & monitoring units to offer Ravenna compatibility. Every model in the RL-Series range (available in 64, 128, 192 and 256-channel versions) is configurable at purchase to be either Ravenna or Dante.

Nixer_RL256_Ravenna_TEVIOS

The RL-Series provides two modes of operation: a mixing mode and a listening mode. Mix up to 256 channels at 48 kHz plus a microphone input and AES input to create a 259-into-2 mixer. Alternatively, in listening mode, touch a channel and instantly route to the L/R output while canceling any previous selection.

PLR64K by Nixer Used in Language Commentary Position

The PLR64K by Nixer is a 64 channel Dante network monitor that makes it possible to access two independently selectable sources via a simple remote control panel.

Nixer_PLR64K_remotecontrol_4units_TEVIOS

 

This remote controller’s primary function is to independently select each output from the incoming Dante stream.
The wall plate remote controller is equipped with:
  • one OLED display displaying the selected channel name & the output signal level
  • a pair of switches per output for channel selection from the list of available Dante channels
  • 3 pin male XLR per output for headsets

Contact us for more information about the PLR64K and its use in language commentary positions.

PD Dante Routing Matrix explained in Nixer video

Nixer Pro Audio explains how to use the routing matrix of the Nixer PD Dante. Route any of the four input sources (Main Mix, Mic/Line, AES in and Test Signal) to any of the six outputs (Headphones/Speakers, Line Out, AES Out and Dante A, B and C). Find out how in their latest video:
