Audinate announced that Lake, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lab.gruppen, has launched the new LM 26 digital audio loudspeaker processor with Dante networking inside.
The LM 26 is the successor to the Dolby Lake Processor (DLP) with extensive digital matrix functions including Dante digital networking, which provides seamless compatibility with Lab.gruppen’s Dante-enabled PLM Series as well as legacy DLPs.
The new LM 26 will accept audio signals via Audinate’s Dante digital audio network at 48 and 96 kHz sampling rates. Automatic input priority switching may be enabled, and the unit can function as both an input matrix mixer and Dante break-in box or break-out box.
Audinate’s Dante is a gigabit networking solution that offers a no hassle, self-configuring, true plug-and-play experience. Dante media networking technology suite transports low-latency, uncompressed audio over a standard IP Ethernet network with sample accurate synchronization.
Dante simplifies installation because it supports automatic device and channel discovery, with easy-to-use signal routing. Dante also provides comprehensive network monitoring tools.
“We are very proud to bring LM 26 to market. This new Digital Audio Loudspeaker Processor builds on the Lake heritage and, with its unique and advanced features, takes loudspeaker management systems to new levels of versatility and practicality,” says Ulf Larson, Lab.gruppen’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Among the features is the Dante Digital Audio Network that ensures total integration with Lab.gruppen PLM products, legacy Lake processors and other Dante-enabled devices to suit almost all applications.”
