A pre-configured ethernet switch designed for professional AV solutions, perfect for touring and live events.

Tailored for AV industry

Pre-configured settings that are common in the AV industry, such as QoS and IGMP snooping.

Easy set-up with front display

Easy group function with pre-configured VLAN’s for a quick set-up (without IT knowledge).

Touring approved

Metal housing and ruggedized Ethercon and OpticalCon connectors, ideal for touring and live events.

Converged networking

Transfer multiple protocols (Dante™, RAVENNA/AES67®, ArtNet, MANet 1&2, sACN,Q-LAN …)

Ultimate link redundancy

RLinkX redundancy protocol automatically takes over signal in milliseconds in case of a link failure.


PoE+ (optional)

Don’t worry about power plugs anymore. PoE+ powers-up all compatible devices within the network.

Araneo to manage and monitor the complete system

All GigaCore switches can be managed with a single network-wide tool: Araneo

Araneo’s online mode shows everything you need to know about the status of your GigaCore network. Data streams and topology are visualized as are the port status of every GigaCore. Monitor your network with confidence and act before the show gets interrupted!

In the Offline mode, Araneo lets you plan in advance the complete network topology and all Gigacore settings. Reducing network commissioning time to a mere click of a button

Focus on being creative again.

Stop wasting time on programming your network or rely on someone else to do it for you. With Luminex GigaCore switches and only some basic AV knowledge, you can do it all by yourself in just the blink of an eye. Now you can finally focus on your core business as an AV technician or designer: “being creative”!

Built-in Redundant Power Supply.

The GigaCore 16RFO has an internal redundant power supply for ultimate redundancy on power level (and PoE). If for some reason the main power supply fails, the redundant supply keeps your system up and running.

The ultimate touring companion with rugged Fiber.

The GigaCore 16RFO has four slots for rugged Fiber connectors (option between Neutrik of Fiberfox) for long distance coverage. So when harsh environments such as tours and live events are your daily life, the GigaCore 16RFO is likely to become your best friend you can always rely on.
