Industry events showcasing Dante audio networking <see all>
Audinate®, creator of the industry-leading media networking technology Dante™, has announced the immediate worldwide availability of its new Dante Via™ software. Having already revolutionized the delivery of audio-over-IP with its widely adopted Dante networking solution, Audinate now makes it even easier for end-users, integrators, consultants and sound engineers across a wide range of markets to experience the advantages of Dante-based networking.
Fiera Milano SpA is the most important trade show organizer in Italy, and its Milano Congressi (MiCo) is the largest convention center in Europe, with 70 conference rooms that can hold up to 18,000 people. The facility needed a complete audio and video solution to buttress the existing BSS Audio network located in the South Block section of the convention center. The solution needed to handle a significant amount of signal processing and enable a dual-redundant Dante network to run through the north block of MiCo. The severe time and budgetary constraints MiCo was under added another challenge.
The Extron NetPA 502 AT is a half rack 1U, convection cooled power amplifiers featuring Dante™ digital audio networking. It delivers two channels of 50 watts into 4 ohms. NetPA™ amplifiers can receive audio from Dante-equipped audio processors over a standard local area network, greatly simplifying the cabling infrastructure for sharing audio across multiple rooms or floors in a building. In addition to amplifying incoming Dante audio, NetPA amplifiers feature line level outputs that can simultaneously feed an additional speaker zone or audio system. They feature an Extron exclusive, highly efficient, advanced Class D amplifier design, plus patented CDRS™ - Class D Ripple Suppression that provides improved signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifiers.
