Arm your SQ mixer with the power of Dante using this SQ Dante 64x64 Expansion Card (M-SQ-Dant64) from Allen & Heath. This audio networking option card has been specifically designed to fit any SQ or AHM processor. It provides a comprehensive 64×64 channel, 96kHz or 48kHz interface to a Dante network.
Seamlessly integrate your SQ system with DT expanders, wireless systems, amplifiers, preamps, and any other Dante-enabled device, making your network powerful, intuitive, and flexible to meet any need that may arise. In addition to streamlining your system’s integration, the M-SQ-Dant64 equips you with digital splits and even an affordable multitrack recording functionality that saves audio directly to your computer.
Switch between 48kHz or 96kHz depending on what sample rate your Dante network uses. The M-SQ-Dant64 provides an industry-standard L3 network protocol, with 512x512 channels of audio at 48kHz, or you can switch to 256x256 channels to enjoy full use of SQ’s high resolution (96kHz) audio capability.
A secondary network connection is also available for network redundancy, ensuring reliable, high-quality audio so you can devote your attention fully to your project, not on any technical problems.
The M-SQ-Dant64 fully supports Dante Domain Manager (DDM), a network management software that allows for user authentication, role-based security, and Dante network auditing—all while enabling for simple and easy scaling of Dante over any network infrastructure.
More about Dante
Developed by Audinate, Dante is a revolutionary, Ethernet-compliant audio networking technology that was designed specifically to meet the increasing demand for high-performance audio, particularly in live sound applications. Dante also allows for flexible routing and offers an affordable solution to computer recording. Dante uses a CAT5 cable and standard networking components to distribute multiple audio streams, plus integrates control data with sub-millisecond latency.
