To be job-ready, our grads need to be aware of the constant changes in the tools of their trade, and demonstrating Focusrite's RedNet system is a way of empowering our students with cutting edge knowledge that can benefit employers and their clients.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
Focusrite, a manufacturer of award-winning professional audio equipment, will present demonstrations of its innovative RedNet system to audio engineering students at SAE Institute, which was recently selected as the best recording and engineering school in America by Vibe Magazine. The demonstrations will take place at SAE’s seven U.S. campuses (New York, Nashville, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago) throughout the summer of 2013.
“RedNet is a new technology that represents what the future of professional audio will look like and sound like,” says Ted White. “By learning about what RedNet is and what it has to offer, SAE’s students will be well-prepared for their future careers in audio engineering.”
RedNet is the first system to offer IP-networked audio interfaces for the audio facilities. It allows for the distribution of hundreds of channels of high-quality audio over a single Ethernet cable with very low latency.
“RedNet is usable in all areas of professional audio,” explains White. From recording studios to universities to sound reinforcement to houses of worship, RedNet has many applications and is interoperable with the equipment of manufacturers that license the Dante protocol, which is the technology that RedNet is based upon.”
A big benefit that RedNet offers is cost savings: it replaces the expensive (and extensive) multi-way cables that usually connect control rooms with recording studios and stages. If a facility has an Ethernet path, RedNet can leverage it as efficient audio path.
“One of the most important goals that we have for our audio technology students is to make sure that they’re prepared to begin their careers once they graduate,” says Scott McKinley, President of SAE U.S.A. “To be job-ready, our grads need to be aware of the constant changes in the tools of their trade, and inviting companies like Focusrite with their incredible RedNet system is a way of empowering our students with cutting edge knowledge that can benefit employers and their clients."
The Focusrite RedNet tour began in San Francisco on June 20 and will visit the following SAE campuses:
- June 28 – Los Angeles
- July 12- Nashville
- July 19 – Atlanta
- July 26 – Chicago
- August 2 – Miami
