Neutrik USA has announced additional options to remote-control preamps via its new NA2-IO-DPRO Dante network device for line, mic and AES signals, with Yamaha specifically adding this support in firmware update version 5.6 for its CL/QL digital consoles.
“There’s no doubt that the future within the Pro AV market is based on interoperability between different devices within an application. We have found the perfect partner with Yamaha to enable this feature for better ease of use and excited customer experience,” says Florian Frick, Product Manager for Neutrik AG.
“Yamaha is delighted to have been able to integrate control of the NA2-IO-DPRO into the CL/QL series with the release of our V5.6 firmware,” adds Motome Tanaka, Yamaha Manager, Marketing and Sales Group. “This collaboration further extends the options for CL/QL systems. In combination with the R series, customers can make their systems even more flexible.”
Using the DPRO on a truss, for example, provides a method to establish ambient miking with short cable runs and then remote control it via CL/QL consoles..
