Blocks are designed for:
connecting analog or digital AES3 audio signals to sound studios and audio mixers using the AES67 or Dante protocol;
transmission of audio signals over Ethernet 100/1000 BaseT;
performing the function of an 8×8 audio switch and creating a distributed network of switches with a common switching field, limited network bandwidth (one audio channel takes about 1 Mbps).
Supports up to 16 channels of balanced analog audio (8 inputs and 8 outputs) or up to 8 channels of AES 3
digital audio (4 inputs and 4 outputs). The type of audio signals (‘ xxxx ‘) for inputs and outputs is selected by the user in the device code independently of each other. The first pair of ‘ xx ‘ defines the input signals and the second pair of ‘ xx ‘ the output signals (‘ A ‘ indicates 2 analog stereo signals; ‘ E ‘ indicates 2 AES digital signals ). An additional Ethernet port provides connection to a redundant ( Redundant )) audio transmission networks or device cascading. Management and monitoring is carried out over an Ethernet network using a proprietary program Dante Controller . HDB44 audio connectors.
