PreSonus StudioLive AI-series Active Integration loudspeakers can be Dante-enabled via the new SL-Dante-SPK upgrade option.
The SL-Dante-SPK card houses one Ethercon connection for Dante audio networking and remote control via the free SL Room Control application for StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers.
Dante-enabled StudioLive AI-series 3-way active loudspeakers allow users to create a complete, networked audio system with any Dante-enabled mixer using a standard 1 GB Ethernet switch and Audinate’s Dante digital-media networking technology, which self-configuring, plug-and-play digital audio networking.
Users can also connect non-Dante mixers, such as a first-generation PreSonus StudioLive, to the analog inputs of a Dante-equipped AI loudspeaker and then broadcast the signal over the Dante network using Cat-5 cables.
The Dante upgrade works with StudioLive 312AI, 315AI, and 328AI loudspeakers and the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer. It will be available from PreSonus dealers in August 2014 with an expected MAP/street price of $199.
