WRC-1 Features & Benefits In-Depth
|Rugged 19” rack-mount metal chassis (1U)||WRC-1 is designed specifically to mount in audio equipment racks. Other routers require the user to design and build a custom tray or enclosure in order to have a “portable” unit that withstands the demands of a pro audio / live sound environment.|
|Front panel mount antennas with SMA connectors||WRC-1 is designed to be used while securely mounted in the equipment rack. SMA connectors allow the user to remove and store the antennas when the rack door is closed.|
|Pro-Grade lockable RJ45 ports||WRC-1 WAN port and one LAN port use professional RJ45 sockets with Neutrik latch-lock connectors to keep critical LAN cables secure during an event.|
|Integrated USB hub||The 5-port USB hub provides convenient and practical capabilities. The USB ports can be used to charge external devices such as mobile phones and tablet PCs. If you install the advanced firmware, the ports can be used to connect USB-enabled mass storage devices to make music tracks or images available on the network (for the advanced firmware option, scroll all the way down this page).|
|Internal universal power supply||WRC-1 is built for use in an audio rack or road case, and includes an internal universal power supply with a standard IEC power cable, unlike traditional wireless LAN routers that use a “wall wart” external power supply that is not intended for portable racks.|
|DLNA player with balanced XLR outputs||The integrated DLNA player functionality allows wireless playback of audio from mobile devices to dedicated balanced analog output ports on the WRC-1 back-panel. For example, when connected to a mixer, the DLNA player provides a simple and efficient way for a band member to easily stream a music file from their mobile phone directly to the mixing console (which could in turn route to the monitor mixes or PA).|
|Wireless Access Point functionality||WRC-1 can be deployed as the central wireless access point for the live sound wi-fi network providing robust connectivity between the digital mixer and related apps on mobile devices. Bi-directional data includes the ability to transfer data from the wireless mobile apps to the wired mixer, as well as functional status and indicators from the digital mixer to the mobile app.|
|Simultaneous dual-band operation||The 2.4G and 5G Wi-Fi networks on the WRC-1 operate independently and do not interfere with data processing for each network. Unique network names and passwords can be set individually for each network to further restrict Wi-Fi device access.|
|Advanced MIMO technology||WRC-1 network architecture uses advanced multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) technology to deliver higher data throughput and a greater range concurrently. WRC-1 also supports the DHCP and Static IP protocols for broadband operation. The advanced firmware also supports the PPPoE protocol.|
|Browser-based configuration||WRC-1 is configured via an easy-to-use web-based HTML Administrator Tool. The configuration tool can be accessed using a standard browser on a computer or laptop connected directly to a network port on the WRC-1.|
