DN32-DANTE features two Gigabit Ethernet ports connected through an internal switch. This allows the simultaneous merging of Ethernet remote control data for your console with bidirectional multichannel audio streams on the same cable. When both the primary and secondary interfaces are connected, the secondary serves as a redundant connection, and is automatically activated should the primary connection become unavailable. Please note that Dante runs Gigabit or 100 MBit/s network infrastructure and requires QoS capable switches.
Computer Audio Interface Option
The Dante Virtual Soundcard application, which is available for PC and Mac computers, allows streaming to and from Dante enabled devices on a networked personal computer – including remote recording or playback over standard IP infrastructure. Live recordings of up to 64 channels are possible by receiving signals from more than one mixing console. Windows WDM and ASIO, and Mac OS X Core Audio are supported to ensure low-latency signal handling by your PC.
