The DARK1616S adds to the Glensound's DARK series of professional network Audio I/O devices. The whole Dark series features Redundant Power Supplies and Redundant Networking with both Redundant copper and fiber network circuits available. It was designed for 24/7/365 working in on-air environments.
It provides 16 analogue audio inputs or 8 AES3 inputs to the Dante network.
It also provides 16 analogue outputs from the network which are in parallel with 8 AES3 outputs. The 'S' part of the product name denotes synchronization, whereby a Word clock input can be used to synchronize the AES3 outputs.
It also features a Word clock output that is clocked at the Dante network clock rate which can be used to lock external studio equipment to.
