Dante


Dante/AES67 Analogue and AES Interfaces


The DIO1616MA-XLR is a Dante enabled interface converting sixteen analogue microphone or line level inputs to Dante streams. The unit also converts Dante streams to sixteen line level analogue outputs. All microphone/line level inputs have adjustable gain from +65dB to -12dB and the analogue outputs from +12dB to -12dB in 1dB steps. Phantom power may be selected to each microphone input.

DIO8008R
Network connections may be copper and/or fibre via two SFPs and the unit includes connections for network redundancy. The DIO1616MA is PoE enabled so may be operated without a mains supply if required.

All level control and phantom switching is adjusted using the built in web server. The unit operates at sample rates of 48kHz and 96kHz. The unit will also operate in AES67 mode.
Power is PoE or mains 110-240 VAC 50/60Hz auto switching.
Dimensions 2RU, 300mm deep.


All details and specifications for the DIO1616MA are the same as the DIO1616MA-XLR above except the DIO1616MA is in a 1RU case and has no phantom power indicators.

DIO8008R
Audio connections are on the rear panel and are wired to the Tascam standard.

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. The unit 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 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.
