Stage Router Pro

19 inch dual band wireless router

Introducing Nowsonic Stage Router Pro

The Stage Router Pro is a unique Gigabit wireless LAN router which can be directly connected to any peripheral device like a digital mixer.

As the central link within the network on stage and in the studio, it connects digital mixing consoles with modern remote controls and reliably transmits audio and control signals. And of course, the Stage Router Pro can be used for every other conceivable application in the network, too.

Thanks to the 19″ housing, the Stage Router Pro can be easily mounted in any rack and then connected to a compatible digital mixer or any other network-capable device using standard CAT5 cables via five Gigabit Ethernet ports. The integrated USB ports can be used to connect external storage media or charge smartphones and tablets.

The Wi-Fi router provides a wireless LAN environment in the 2.4 GHz (802.11g) and/or 5 GHz (802.11n) frequency bands. Wi-Fi-enabled devices can be connected with a data throughput of up to 867 MBit/s.

Thanks to advanced MIMO technology, the Stage Router Pro achieves higher data throughput and a greater range at the same time and supports the PPPoE, DHCP, and Static IP protocols for broadband operation. With the two receiving antennas for each band or the optionally available Stage Antenna Sets, the Stage Router Pro can be used as a true diversity system.

Wireless microphone paths can be operated in parallel without interference with the Stage Router Pro in the 5 GHz band. Installation and startup are done via a web-based setup application that can be opened in any current browser, even on mobile devices.
