Sonnet Thunderbolt Gigabit Ethernet Adapter with AVB Support

The Single-adapter Solution for Connecting to Pro Tools | Carbon

Thunderbolt Gigabit Ethernet Adapter for Macs with Thunderbolt Ports

The Avid® Pro Tools | Carbon audio interface for music production has been described as a creative game changer; its innovative use of eight onboard HDX processors and a custom FPGA enable you to track and monitor with near-zero latency when using AAX DSP plug-ins. Because Carbon connects to your Mac® over Ethernet using a proprietary version of AVB (Audio Video Bridging, aka IEEE 802.1), you’ll have to use an AVB capable Thunderbolt™ Gigabit Ethernet adapter if your computer doesn’t have onboard Ethernet. The Avid Qualified Sonnet Thunderbolt AVB adapter is your single-adapter solution for connecting your Mac with Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 ports to the Carbon interface.

Audio Video Bridging support makes the adapter perfect for use in pro audio and video applications where synchronization of data streams is critical.
