Dante


Dante/AES67 Monitoring and Mixing


The DDM888 is a 1RU Dante enabled stereo monitor unit with two high/midrange speakers and a single bass driver for quality monitoring. The unit can access sixteen stereo network inputs, eight stereo analogue inputs, eight balanced AES inputs and eight stereo SDI audio channels. There is also a programmable preset button for monitoring frequently used combinations. The unit includes a stereo meter which may be selected to analogue PPM style metering with phase indication or bargraph.

There is an SDI output as well as a stereo analogue output for external monitoring or metering. The network connections include a selectable redundant or switch secondary. All inputs include level controls for normalising the input levels if required. Additionally, inputs may be individually delayed by up to eight frames. The DDM888 includes a webserver GUI for easy setup and selection.

The AES inputs include asynchronous sample rate converters and will accept AES signals of almost any sample rate up to 192kHz with no adjustment.
The SDI inputs will accept SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI level A and B.
The DDM888 may be powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE) on either or both copper primary and secondary ethernet jacks or mains 110-240 VAC 50/60Hz.
The unit is 1RU high and 150mm deep.




The DPM802 is a Dante enabled PoE Production monitor unit with eight Dante stereo inputs, one analogue stereo input and both Dante and analogue stereo outputs. The unit includes up to eight frames of programmable stereo delay plus cut, dim and of course a volume control.

There are also two GPI inputs for remote control of cut and dim. The DPM802 has many features that may be programmed via its web page including key colours, delay time, input gains and remote control of functions. For convenience of adjustment the delay time may also be set using just the front panel controls as well as via the web page.

The unit includes a redundant network connection which may alternatively be used as a network switch output. The Dante Outputs Left and Right are mirrored on the rear of the DPM802 as balanced XLR analogue outputs for convenient connection to a power amplifier. The two analogue inputs may be assigned to any of the select switches.
The unit may be powered by mains or PoE or both.




The Prehear D4080 is a Dante enabled version of our analogue Prehear 1020. The unit is unusual in that it is Dante equipped but is also fully functional in stand alone analogue mode or even both at once, particularly useful for derigs. The unit presents itself to the network as a ten input, two output device but also has ten analogue inputs and two analogue outputs.
All inputs are selectable to either or both of the two internal speakers, line level speaker outputs and headphone socket with individual volume controls, cut buttons and signal input LEDs. The unit includes a secondary port for Dante Redundancy or a switch output. Both ports include network activity LEDs.

The Prehear 4080 covers all those 'listen' feeds required by production. Pre-fade listen feeds of presenters, off air feeds, and all those other bits and pieces that waste talkback matrix inputs can be fed directly to these units with convenient local control.

Each input may be switched to left, right, or both speakers.
Each channel has an audio present (VOX) indicator, a volume control and a cut switch with bright blue illumination.
There is a speaker cut button with red illumination and a stereo headphone socket suitable for stereo or 316 jacks. An indicator illuminates on successful connection to the network.



Both loudspeaker amplifiers have built in limiters to protect the loudspeakers.
All analogue inputs and outputs are on XLR and there are two line level outputs with switching following the left/right/both switches.

The unit will operate on 110-240VAC with auto switching.

Dimensions: 1RU 160mm deep.


Designed primarily for switching between monitoring systems the NMS802 is a Dante enabled PoE Network Monitor Switch with one Dante stereo input, one stereo analogue input, eight Dante stereo outputs and one analogue stereo output. The unit includes up to eight frames of programmable stereo delay plus cut, dim and a volume control.

The unit includes a redundant network connection which may alternatively be used as a network switch output. The Dante Left and Right inputs are mirrored on the rear of the NMS802 as balanced XLR analogue inputs. One of the outputs may be selected as analogue available on the rear.
The unit may be powered by mains or PoE or both.




The DMIX30 is a Dante enabled mixer which includes six discrete five into one mixers. All audio inputs and outputs are assignable via the Dante network and have adjustable gain from off to +12dB. Additional gain of +20dB may be switched to each input allowing a maximum of +44dB gain. All mixers include a switchable limiter with threshold adjustment.

All six mixers have TFT bargraph metering which may be selected to either dBFS or PPM metering scales with appropriate ballistics.

The six mixer outputs are available over the Dante network but also as balanced analogue XLR outputs on the rear of the unit.

The secondary Dante network connector can be selected to operate either in redundant mode or as a switch output to daisy chain to more Dante equipped devices.

prehear 1020 rear A special feature of this unit is that any or all of the mixers may be remote controlled. The unit can accept up to six separate remotes each of which is assignable to any of or any combination of the mixers. Perfect for controlling remote sources such as radio talkback feeds.
The data from the remotes is encoded in a modified 'time code' signal so may be carried over any standard audio transport, including audio fibre channels. The remotes are available separately so may be added if and when required.
The unit operates on 110-240VAC 50/60Hz with auto switching.

Dimensions: 2RU 150mm deep.
