Industry events showcasing Dante audio networking <see all>
Audinate has announced that 275 manufacturers have now adopted Dante, the industry-leading audio over IP networking solution, and that more than 675 Dante-enabled products are now available worldwide. This represents a dramatic 145% increase in the number of commercially available products since ISE last year.
Due to limited space, multi-functionality for areas within cruise liners has become a must. As the ships grow in size and required bandwidth, the implementation of fibre-based technologies is also becoming increasingly important. Now that newer protocols have been developed for faster networks, such as Audinate’s Dante, bidirectional audio distribution to and from and between venues is becoming more viable. For TUI Cruises Entertainment Berlin, Dante has been a worthy investment that has allowed for the kind of networking flexibility that is required.
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.
