*Formation products create a mesh network. Each product
in this network dynamically chooses the optimal path to
route audio-data between products, in order to ensure a
robust streaming experience. We have therefore certified
Formation products for High Network Availability (HiNA)
and conform to the appropriate power requirements set
out in the ERP directive.
