Portland, OR (November 17, 2016)—Audinate has released its new Dante Analog Output Module, a small form factor PCB intended for development of Dante-to-analog endpoints.
The Dante Analog Output Module supports one RJ45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analog outputs. The module can receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide audio via balanced output connectors to analog audio equipment.
Any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, digital signal processor (DSP) or other analog audio device. Adapters (for example, XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without the required built-in connector.
“At Audinate, we are committed to enabling digital networking throughout the entire audio signal chain,” said Joshua Rush, vice president of Marketing and Product. “The Dante Analog Output Module provides the perfect foundation for manufacturers to easily build adapters to add analog endpoints to the Dante network.”
The Dante Analog Output Module features a digital-to-analog converter, and supports sample rates of sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz (default) and 96 kHz. It can provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network.
