The Dante audio interface card allows iLive systems to work with Audinate's Dante audio networking solution, providing capacity for 64x64 bi-directional audio with full network redundancy. iLive MixRacks and modular surfaces with the RAB2 module can be fitted with the new slot-in card. A Dante Virtual Soundcard license will be included with purchases of the card, turning a PC or Mac into a Dante enabled device.
"We know from our customers that there are many iLive users who want to be able to integrate with Dante," stated Glenn Rogers, Managing Director of Allen & Heath. "We have been pleased to work with Audinate in the development of their new 64 channel module, which will provide a great solution. The new audio interface card should be available to us in November."
Audinate revolutionizes the way network systems are connected by transporting high-quality media over standard IT networks. Its Dante products delivers a no hassle, self-configuring, true plug-and-play digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols. Dante offers a market leading solution today, while de-risking the future by providing a migration path to upgrade to new standards such as the IEEE Audio Video Bridging (AVB).
Allen & Heath's iLive digital mixing series comprises several Control Surface and MixRack variants, which can be mixed and matched in any combination and share the same firmware.
