The DASR-288 is a digital audio transport system utilizing Audinate’s Dante™ network audio solution. The DASR-288 connects to your network with a single Ethernet cable. It is a Dante Break Out / ecoder interface in a 2RU form factor designed for all types of commercial AV installations. It offers eight channels of line-level analogue in and 8 line-level analogue outputs. Precision 24-bit A-D and D-A converters are used for superb audio performance with a 119dB dynamic range at sample rates up to 192kHz. This product is used as the audio matrix, each having eight inputs, where you can send uncompressed audio with low latency using standard TCP/ IP Ethernet network. It’s remotely controlled via the network and can be placed anywhere in a facility. Unique to the DASR-288 is its Data tunneling. No other manufacturer offers this feature, which allows you to transport with the Digital audio, 8 contact closures in and 8 contact closures out together combined with either RS-232C serial data.
Each of the 8 balanced analog inputs and 8 outputs may be assigned to any Dante flow in the system, either by means of the Audinate’s Dante Controller Windows or OSX application or Inter-M’s own S-Connect Windows Software. The S-Connect allows for system configuration as well as easy channel switching. The S-Connect Software is designed to operate by simple touch screen.
Dual redundant Gigabit Dante Network connections are available. Both primary and secondary connections support full Gigabyte ports for full redundancy. Signal Monitoring is available for all 8 inputs and 8 outputs with a front panel mounded dual LEDs, indicating signal presence and clipping. Network status LEDs also monitor network connectivity and transition speed. Brand Interoperability Based on industry standards, Audinate’s Dante, is an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology, with near-zero latency and synchronization. Dante is the preferred audio networking solution that has been adopted by more pro-audio AV manufacturers than any other networking technology. Interoperability is a reality today. The Inter-M DASR-288 is compatible with hundreds of other Dante-enabled products available from the world’s leading manufacturers, enabling you to mix devices from multiple manufacturers.
