Designed to help integrate dLive and Avantis into a wide range of live, install and broadcast scenarios, the Dante 128×128 audio networking card offers low latency, high channel count connectivity to Dante networks and devices using standard networking cabling and hardware. With 128 channels of bidirectional audio at 96kHz, the Dante 128×128 card is suitable for high channel digital splits between systems, for instance FOH and MON, while offering simultaneous multitrack recording via Dante Virtual Soundcard (available separately), with no compromise in audio quality.
The front panel Primary and Secondary ports allow simultaneous connection to multiple Dante devices, or dual-cable redundancy with compatible hardware. A dedicated Control Network port is provided for configuration using Dante Controller software.
Support for the AES67 standard allows interoperability with other AoIP protocols found in broadcast, install and live sound scenarios and simplifies audio transport between different systems. Compatibility with Dante Domain Manager (DDM) enables integration with large networks and transparent routing across subnets as well as robust security and authentication options.
