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 unito NAM 602/603 is the first product from a new DELEC range – a speaker amplifier for IP networks that converts traditional analog and digital audio to IP and vice versa. This way, it combines audio, which still relies mostly on analog technologies, with the emerging innovative world of IP.
The NAM 602/603 transfers the audio from the Dante audio network right to the speakers and, therefore, is the ideal monitoring tool for a multitude of applications.
Designed for either indoor or outdoor use, the NAM 602/603 carries an IP66 rating that ensures solid performance under the most challenging conditions. This unit incorporates dual 1GB Ethernet ports (2 x RJ45), four outputs that deliver 12W RMS at 4, 8 or 16 Ohms or, alternatively, two outputs delivering 24W RMS at 8 or 16 Ohms, AES/EBU input and output capability, plus a microphone input. Like the NAM 203, this higher capacity model also provides Delay and Gain, as well as FIR and IIF filters on each channel. The unit is powered by an external power supply. Also noteworthy, the NAM 603 offers redundant audio sources for power amp inputs when used in combination with other DELEC Dante enabled products.
