The KIT 989 CobraNet card digital audio and control data networking solution for the Dolby Lake Processor, allowing the audio routing of an entire sound system to be managed remotely from one location, with no need to access racks to re-patch. Using CobraNet instead of analog copper reduces cabling and conduit costs, and reduces the number of AD/DA conversion stages.
The KIT 989 offers flexible, dual-redundant 100Mbps Ethernet routing of up to eight inputs and 16 outputs of 48kHz/20-bit audio with selectable latency across the network. The KIT 989 provides comprehensive signal routing both to and from the Dolby Lake Processor’s reference-quality audio converters and AES/EBU digital audio channels. Dolby’s patented low-latency sample rate conversion is available on all input and output channels. In addition, the KIT 989 CobraNet module provides selectable latency of 1.33, 2.66 or 5.33 ms across the network.
The KIT 989 RJ-45 connectors allow both a primary and secondary connection to the 100Mbps Ethernet network, providing fault-tolerant transport of real-time digital audio via CobraNet along with control data. If the primary connection loses link activity with the network, then the KIT 989 automatically switches to the secondary connection to ensure uninterrupted performance.
