Users of Dante networks are now able to create quick Dante endpoints, promises its Australian developer Audinate, thanks to the introduction of the Dante Analog Output Module. The device is a small-form factor PCB with appropriate analogue connectors that can be used in small footprint enclosures.
The module supports one RJ-45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analogue outputs. It can receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via balanced output connectors to analogue audio equipment. According to the manufacturer, any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, digital signal processor or other analogue audio device.
