The 128-channel Dante I/O Card for AX32 and the 720-260A Card for Penta 720 is capable of interfacing 128 bi-directional channels of Dante or AES67 low-latency,
real-time IP Ethernet audio.
The Dante card has onboard sample rate conversion for both input and output signals, enabling separation between the clock synchronization of the AX32 and other Dante audio devices interfacing the expansion card.
Independent Sample Rate Conversion
The Dante expansion card features per-card sample rate conversion, which by using more cards allows several independent audio networks that run on individual clocks and sample rates to be connected to and unified in a single AX32 unit.
This naturally unleashes a wealth of possibilities for distributing audio across sources and destinations on highly complex setups that e.g. involve sending a feed to an OB truck, while recording at a different sample rate and sending yet another feed to a FOH console or an in-ear monitoring system.
Simply adding more Dante channels may sound trivial, but once you start to think about the actual problems that this amount of channels in combination with independent sample rate conversion is capable of solving, it's a quite significant improvement of the overall system.
For instance, the new Dante card will immediately be able to solve real-world challenges in regard to high channel counts when working with Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite, as well as in recording studios where Dante based monitoring systems are used, but there is a need to record at a different sample rate or in Live applications where there Dante networks have to be kept physically separated when operating on different clocks.
The internal sample rate converters on the new Dante cards have been developed in-house and we have never compromised on the quality of our AD/DA converters - or internal sample rate conversion within the digital domain. 'Digital' is simply part of our brand name and we take that very seriously!
