Dante Analog Output Module

The Dante Analog Output Module™ is a Dante® audio to analog audio adapter module, supporting one RJ45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analog outputs. It is designed for use in products assembled using an overmold process.

The Dante Analog Output Module is the perfect foundation for your own line of Dante analog output adapters.

Dante Analog Output Module products enable simple connection of analog equipment to a Dante network. The module can receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via balanced output connectors to analog audio equipment. Any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, digital signal processor (DSP), or other analog audio device. Adapters (for example XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without the required built-in connectors.

Dante Analog Output Module uses Power over Ethernet (PoE). Power can be provided through the Ethernet cable from a PoE-capable network switch, or from a separate PoE injector.

Dante Analog Output Module features a high-quality digital-to-analog converter, and supports a range of sample rates and bit depths. It can provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network.

As with other Dante products, the freely available Dante Controller software application is used to automatically discover and configure Dante Analog Output Module devices connected to the Dante network.

Device names, channel labels, signal routing and other parameters (for example, sample rate and latency) can be configured via the network using Dante Controller. A variety of network and clock synchronisation diagnostic tools are also available in Dante Controller.

Manufacturers can use this module in a variety of small footprint enclosures with appropriate analog connectors to rapidly bring complete products to market.
