Many smaller radio station facilities have found digital audio networking to be cost-prohibitive. Now, the affordable VMConnect makes powerful, flexible VMConnected Network digital studio networks an option for operations of all sizes. It is based upon, and fully compatible with, VMConnected Network and VMConnected Network Envoy audio management frames, delivering “no compromise” reliability and performance.
VMConnect adds a new level of scalability to VMConnected Networks. In addition to lowering the cost of entry for a new facility, it offers an additional means for adding distributed network connectivity to existing networks with VMConnected Network or VMConnected Network Envoy frames. The optical hub option extends the connection range to other VMConnected Networked devices to up to 2 km.
Larger installations with pre-existing centralized facilities or non-networked gear will still find that the classic VMConnected Network and VMConnected Network Envoy frames offer the best value.
