The TASCAM ML-16D is a professional Dante-focused converter made specifically to insert or extract analog audio into or out of a Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) network using external breakout devices that utilize Sub-D format connectors.

The ML-16D has 2 D-Sub inputs and 2 D-Sub outputs, which can easily be connected to any of the many devices that utilize D-Sub connectors such as microphone preamplifiers, large and small format console mixers, audio interfaces, amplifiers, and euro block connector devices. This simple, yet elegant, solution enables audio to be quickly and easily inserted into – or extracted from – the Dante audio stream.

SMPTE ST-2110 is a video and audio IP network standard defined by SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers). SMPTE ST-2110 is designed to separately embed and transmit video, audio, and ancillary signals, reducing the de-embedding processing load and network load of each device, while also enabling users to de-embed only the packet data they desire for further edit. ST-2110-30 realizes IP transmission of PCM digital audio, enabling high-precision synchronization using PTP (IEEE1588-2008) and low-latency transmission. It is expected to become a network standard protocol in next-generation broadcasting systems.

Dante is a transmission protocol developed by Audinate. It enables multi-channel transmission (512ch IN/512ch OUT) and word-clock sync with high accuracy via network with gigabit Ethernet standard.
