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.
The 2,200-seat Hamilton Place Theatre, an internationally acclaimed Canadian venue renowned for its outstanding acoustics, recently underwent a much-needed audio systems upgrade to replace the 15-year-old system previously installed. With Lab.gruppen's D Series amps integrated with Dante audio networking, a brand new, cutting-edge audio system was successfully implemented, and made the venue more flexible and competitive for modern performances.
The RU-LB4 is a high quality line-level bi-directional Dante network interface. The RU-LB4 converts four line-level audio sources to Dante network channels, and four Dante network audio signals to balanced line level.
The line level inputs accept unbalanced or balanced signals. Line-level outputs are balanced. The front panel features signal LEDs that indicate audio presence for each of the received network signal channels and a gain trimmer with an associated Dual-LED VU meter for each audio input.
Balanced +4 dBu audio levels correspond to a network digital audio level of -18 dBFS. The noise floor is better than 80 dB below operating level.
The RU-LB4 is also available in a PoE version (RU-LB4P). If PoE power and an external 24 Vdc supply are both feeding an RU-LB4P, the unit will run from the external supply and will seamlessly switch over to PoE power upon loss of the external supply.
