New York, NY (August 13, 2018)—Users of Allen & Heath SQ Series consoles will now have their own 96 kHz Dante Dante card, which the console company just began shipping.
The SQ Dante card allows a SQ console to connect to 96 kHz amplifiers, interfaces and other devices on a Dante network, without unnecessary sample rate conversion or added latency. In addition to facilitating system integration, the new card enables digital splits and multitrack recording direct to a computer.
The SQ Dante card can also be switched to 48 kHz to accommodate existing Dante networks and is Dante Domain Manager ready.
SQ product manager, Keith Johnson, noted, “Our R&D team has been working with the good folks at Audinate on a custom implementation of Dante HC to deliver a high channel count, 96 kHz solution that takes full advantage of SQ’s XCVI FPGA core. Sometimes breaking new ground takes a little longer than taking the easy option – but we’re confident that the results are well worth it.”
