REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) is Roland’s original technology for low latency, high quality digital audio transfer. Products using REAC technology are installed today in many venues and have been used for high profile events worldwide. REAC technology provides many system advantages.
REAC transfers 24-bit uncompressed multi channel audio with very low latency. REAC technology eliminates the typical problems found in analog transfer such as signal quality degradation or hums and buzzes. In addition, since REAC transfer happens over light weight cable and is immune to externally induced noise, designers and integrators have more freedom for cable placement resulting in lower cost installations.
Heavy analog multi core cable requires large, expensive conduit for installations, and suffers from high frequency losses and potential for induced hums and buzzes. REAC’s transfer protocol provides pristine digital audio in a very light weight, inexpensive and easy to install cable format.
In analog transfer systems, low level mic signals must go long distances before they are amplified. With the REAC system, the input signal is amplified on stage, right next to the source, and then converted to a lossless, 24-bit digital signal. This REAC audio signal can then be transferred without degradation.So direct boxes are not required.
Using a Cat5e cable, simply connect a PC to the REAC split port on the back of the M-400 V-Mixer. Take inputs and buses from/to stage in their original digital form for up to 40 channels of recording. Integrate a high quality recording system with unprecedented ease at an affordable price.
* REAC driver must be installed on PC for multi-channel recording.
* The number of recording tracks may differ depending on the PC performance.
