Description

Digital Audio Transport System with DANTE (TM) The DAC-288 is a digital audio transport system utilising Audinate’s DanteTM network audio solution.  The DAC-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 (2 mic/line selectable) 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 DAC-288 is its Data tunnelling. 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 RS232 or RS485 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 InteroperabilityBased on industry standards, Audinate’s Dante, is an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology, with near-zero latency and synchronisation. 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 DAC-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. DANTE Network Audio TechnologyAudinate’s Dante™ is a modern high performance digital media transport system that runs over standard IP networks. Dante exceeds all other systems in speed, channel count, ease of use, flexibility and scalability. Dante™ offers a no hassle, self-configuring, true plug and play digital audio networking experience. It is a total solution for transporting low latency uncompressed audio over standard IP Ethernet networks with sample accurate synchronisation, automatic device and channel discovery, and easy to use signal routing. DANTE Audio NetworkAudinate’s Dante, is an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology, with near-zero latency (Maximum delay time: under 1ms) and synchronisation. DanteTM is currently the most advanced and most widely used network audio technology. It transmits 48kHz, 24bit high quality digital audio in real time through standard TCP/IP network protocol. DATA Tunnelling (8 In/Out Dry Contact & RS-232C)Unique to the DAC-288 is its Data tunnelling. 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 RS232 or RS485 serial data. These features can be used to remotely turn on/off other local equipment remotely. Verify equipment status or control other devices via one network. PC ControlEach 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. The S-Connect software comes included with the DAC-288 Web-Browser ConfigurationThe DAC-288 can easily be configured using the built-in Web-browser interface. Once connected to the network, the front mounted OLED screen will display the device’s IP address. Use this IP address to login to the Web-Browser interface to setup the DAC-288’s operation parameters. Economical and VersatileDistributing Digital Network audio over a Large Local Area Network is simple and economical. One cable does it all. Dante can easily be integrated to existing building network infrastructures illuminating the requirements to run heavy, expensive analog or multicore cabling, replacing them with low-cost, easily-available CAT5e, CAT6, or fiber optic cable for a simple, lightweight, and economical solution. Dante integrates media and control for your entire system over a single, standard IP network. DAC-288 and Dante systems can easily be scaled from a simple pairing of a console to a computer, to large capacity networks running thousands of audio channels. Because Dante uses logical routes instead of physical point-to-point connections, the network can be expanded and reconfigured at any time with just a few mouse clicks. Outstanding QualitySince audio is transmitted digitally, audio transmitted with the DAC-288 using Dante Network audio is not affected from common analogue challenges such as interference from other electrical equipment, crosstalk between cables, or signal degradation over long cable runs.   Software can be downloaded directly from InterM here.
