Whirlwind Snake – digital, E Snake, frame, 32×32, CobraNet, I/O cards not included ES3




The main components of the Whirlwind E Snake system are the E Snake Frame (ES3), E Snake 2 (ES2) and E Snake Control software for managing the system. Two or more of these units connected to each other or through a 100Mb Ethernet switch (transport dependent) with CAT-5 or fiber optic cables will replace the traditional analog multipair audio snake. E Snake currently supports CobraNet and EtherSound, the industry standards for real-time, multi-channel networked audio. Each master unit (ES3 or ES2) consists of a hardware frame and motherboard that can be configured with input and output cards. Each card is capable of processing eight channels of audio. An ES3 can accept up to 4 input and output cards. Therefore, each ES3 is capable of simultaneously processing 32 inputs and 32 outputs. ES2 can accept any two I/O cards and therefore process up to 16 inputs, 16 outputs or 8 of each. Multiple frames can be used to increase the capacity to literally hundreds of channels if required.
