Audinate Introduces Dante Analog Output Module

Designed to offer manufacturers a simplified option for developing Dante endpoints

By PSW Staff November 16, 2016

The new Dante analog output module from Audinate.

Audinate  has announced the immediate availability of the Dante analog output module, a small form factor PCB designed to allos for rapid development of Dante-to-analog endpoints.

Manufacturers can use this module in a variety of small footprint enclosures with appropriate analog connectors to more quickly bring finished products to market.

The module supports one RJ45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analog outputs. It can receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via balanced output connectors to analog audio equipment.

Further, any audio available on a Dante network can be routed via the outputs to an amplifier, powered loudspeaker, mixing console, digital signal processor (DSP), or other analog audio device. Adapters (for example XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without the required built-in connectors.

“At Audinate we are committed to enabling digital networking throughout the entire audio signal chain,” states Joshua Rush, Audinate vice president of marketing and product. “The Dante analog output module provides the perfect foundation for manufacturers to easily build adapters to add analog endpoints to the Dante network.”

The module includes a high-quality digital-to-analog converter, and supports a range of sample rates and bit depths. It can provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network, supports sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz (default), and 96 kHz, as well as Power-over-Ethernet (POE).
