Dante


Dante/AES67 Analogue and AES Interfaces


The DIO8008R is a Dante enabled control unit for switching audio sources/destinations under Command Line Interface (CLI) or Telnet control. The unit is highly suitable for automated switching and is especially suitable for use within radio station infrastructure.

DIO8008R
The unit has sixteen Dante inputs and sixteen Dante outputs as well as eight balanced analogue inputs and eight balanced analogue outputs. The analogue IO may be supplied with Studiohub+ (DIO8008R) or XLR (DIO8008RX) connections.

The DIO8008R includes an ethernet control port, separate from the Dante ports and with its own IP address. This port controls all matrix switching. Signal levels for both inputs and outputs may also be controlled in 1dB steps from -12dB to +12dB. The DIO8008R has a built in network switch for network redundancy. The unit operates on 110-240VAC with auto switching.
Dimensions: 1RU 150mm deep.


The DIO816AES is an simple way to get your AES audio into and out of the Dante or AES67 network. The unit has eight stereo AES inputs and eight stereo AES outputs with remote webpage level control. It can handle multiple sample rates and includes a secondary port for Dante Redundancy or a switch output. Both ports include network activity LEDs. Level and operational adjustments may be made using the DIO816AES web page.

The AES inputs are fitted with asynchronous sample rate converters and will accept unlocked sample rates from 32kHz to 192kHz with no adjustment. This is on a per input basis so each AES input may have completely different sample rates. The AES outputs may be selected to either 48kHz or 96kHz in two groups, 1-4 and 5-8.

The DIO88 is an inexpensive way to get your analogue signals into and out of the Dante network. The unit has eight XLR inputs and eight XLR outputs. The secondary Dante network connector can be selected to operate either in redundant mode or as a switch output to daisy chain more Dante equipped devices.
