(PresseBox) (Wuppertal, ) Riedel Communications renowned for pioneering cutting edge audio, fiber and intercom technology unveiled the RockNet RN.334.MD MADI-Interface and RockWorks 1.6 to the American market at this year's NAMM in Anaheim, California. The RockNet MADI interface RN.334.MD provides both electrical and optical MADI inputs and outputs. The interface allows a convenient connection to any digital mixing console, recording system and audio routing environment. The module supports both 56 and 64 channel MADI format.

Furthermore, Riedel presented the next version of the RockNet control and configuration software: RockWork 1.6. RockWorks 1.6 provides the integration for the RockNet MADI module as well as for the RockNet MediorNet card that integrates RockNet into Riedel's fiber based solution for distribution and routing of HD video, audio, intercom and data signals.
