Portland, OR (October 12, 2010)—Audinate’s Dante networking solution will be integrated into several future Four Audio products.
Four Audio has licensed Audinate’s Dante Brooklyn modules to provide a TCP/IP networking solution for its HD2 loudspeaker management system, allowing users to stream 24-bit audio data, and control and monitor HD2 devices over a normal computer network using only an Ethernet cable. Next to the usual features of an audio controller, the HD2 reportedly provides more than 130 dB dynamic range at the inputs and allows control of the phase response of the speaker down to very low frequencies. Its limiter concept uses RMS and peak limiters for the amplifier and thermal and peak limiters for the speakers.
Four Audio is also integrating Dante into its solutions for wave field synthesis systems that provide up to several hundred audio channels.
"Dante enables us to set up these systems with just the minimum of Ethernet cables, which we couldn’t do in the past. You can control and monitor everything from a laptop. Setting up a PA system or a large sound installation has never been easier." says Rainer Thaden, Four Audio’s Managing Director. “Using Audinate's Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS), it will now be possible to stream the audio data directly from the computer's Ethernet card”
“We are excited to welcome Four Audio to our growing list of licensees,” says John R. McMahon Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Audinate, “Four Audio has equipped the biggest wave field synthesis system presently in use and we are proud to be a part of their future product solutions.”
