About Ethernet Back later .....
Alyseum products rely on Ethernet to transport data, compared to other solutions (USB1.0/1.1/2.0, IEEE1394, ...) Ethernet offers many advantages:
> Free topology & available on all computer platforms
> No real limit in cable length and node connections.
> FULL Duplex.
> Very high bandwidth and very low Latency.
> Embedded devices can work without any computer in the network.
> Peer to peer capability.
> Full electrical isolation between machines, preventing audio hum due to ground loops.
> Low cost, ubiquitous and reliable infrastructure.
The founder of Alyseum daily designs electronic products for various companies in Europe, in the domains of industrial control, automotive, railways, etc...
For 20 years, he has developed and manufactured unique and full-custom electronic musical equipment for the famous musician Vangelis, hence creating what is probably the biggest MIDI control and audio setup in the world.
