The DARK8ADI (Analogue & Digital Input) is a very powerful Dante®/ AES67 network audio interface, in a robust 1RU 19" subrack It has a 8 off low noise analogue line inputs and 4 off transformer balanced AES3 digital audio inputs. These inputs are transmitted on a fully redundant Dante®/ AES67 network interface.
In total 16 audio circuits are sent to the Dante®/ AES67 network. Eight of these circuits are always derived from the 4 x AES3 inputs, the other eight are automatically switched between the AES3 and analogue inputs. If the Dark8ADI detects valid AES3 signal on a channel then this will be routed to the network output, if no valid AES3 is detected then the analogue input will be routed to the network output instead of the AES3.
The rugged design, redundant mains powering & redundant network facility of the unit means that it can easily be placed and left unattended wherever audio sources are required.
