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 Ottocanali 12K4 DSP+D offers a wide range of system control and monitoring functions as well as sound shaping options, a total of 12,000 W output power at 4 ohm over 8 channels for lo-Z or distributed line systems.
As with former versions of Ottocanali, the DSP+D versions feature switchable main and aux signal inputs per channel, adequate GPIO, alarms, Lo-Z and Hi-Z output connections as well as mono-bridgeable channel pairs.
These two RU models implement two redundant universal switch mode power supplies with PFC (Power Factor Correction) and patented SRM (Smart Rails Management) technology that maximises the efficiency of the system as well as drastically reduces power consumption.
With two redundant Dante by Audinate digital streams, the Ottocanali 12K4 DSP+D will fit any venue as ‘stand-alone’ unit, making it ideal for multi-zone applications in mid to large-scale installs.
