With modules for MIC AMP, A/D, D/A AES/EBU input/output, the LW-55 can be custom configured for any application. The LW-55 transmits up to 64 channels of 24-bit, 96 kHz digital audio signals in each direction. All of these features can be controlled and monitored by the included control software.
The LW-55 can handle up to 64 channels of 24-bit 96 kHz audio signals. It accepts external word clock signals at 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz. The optical fiber cables between two units can be extended up to 1.5 km and the transmission length can be extended up to 22.5 km with a maximum of 16 units connected.
The LW-55 units are connected by dual transmission lines and each unit has dual power supplies for fault-tolerant and redundant operation.
