The 10-port MH10 Merger Hub supports bidirectional parallel connections in a Pro64® audio network.
In a digital snake application, place an MH10 in each rack at stage and FOH and connect the snake with a single Cat-5e cable. In an audio network, place one ore more MH10 hubs in a central machine room along with some Cat-5 patch bays to add even more flexibility to the system.
The MH10 Merger Hub is similar to the familiar Ethernet switch, but with features and performance designed specifically for use in real-time streaming audio applications. The MH10 provides a way to build a Pro64® digital snake or audio network with parallel connections without sacrificing the ability to distribute signals bi-directionally throughout an installation.
The MH10 merges the inputs from all ten ports, ensuring that all 64 active channels in the network are distributed back out all ten ports, regardless of the physical location of those inputs. Those 64 channels can be physically located off any combination of the ten ports, even if they go through multiple MH10s.
For larger networks, multiple MH10 Merger Hubs can be included in a single system without loss of performance. All ten network ports on the MH10 feature heavy duty Neutrik EtherCon connectors.
