Hospitality: Two Zone Bar
Two Zone Bar Audio System Application Diagrams
A small bar or restaurant may have two areas with their own volume control. You need to be able to plug in music sources, the occasional microphone and even Bluetooth audio from mobile devices. Some premises will need a paging microphone, and some will relay sound from their television system.
Dante simplifies connectivity, even in small set ups. Using industry standard, low cost Ethernet cabling, everything runs back to one or more network switches. Using a networked connection, you have no concerns about hums and buzzes associated with analog connections.
You can expand your system at any time simply by connecting more devices and switches to your network. Making changes to a system using Dante is easier, less expensive and more feasible than with many analog systems. There is no need to reroute wires as any of the network jacks can be used for any Dante-enabled device. For example, a mixer can be moved out to the patio for a special dinner and back inside for the dancing with no configuration changes needed.
