Optocore has been developing fiber network tailored for low-latency audio distribution since almost 30 years. The whole range of network products can be connected in point-to-point, daisy chain, star or ring topology providing distributed matrix for audio and data, with redundant loop being the main technology core. Each fiber network product provides different audio connectivity, such as microphone inputs, line inputs, line outputs, AES/EBU or MADI. Once connected - any input signal can be mapped to multiple outputs in different formats. Together with audio Optocore fiber network transport Ethernet as well as serial data and Word Clock.
