Dante™ enabled products: SCD1010, DIO1616MA/XLR, DIO8008R, DIO816AES, DPM802, DCD2020.
Also RMA400, dBbox2 and our new beltpack range.

As well as our ethernet enabled Dante commentary boxes and most of our Dante range being eminently suitable for remote production we now offer our RMA400 quad embedding ethernet controlled microphone amplifier. This unit has its own dedicated Windows application and offers easy and fast noiseless adjustment of microphone parameters including Gain, limiters, phantom power, pads and high pass filters from almost anywhere.

The SCD1010 is a cost effective Dante Commentary box supporting one commentator. Network connection may be fibre or copper and it has full network redundancy. Microphone amplifier gain and many other adjustments such as phantom power and limit levels may be controlled remotely via the SCD1010's web server. In addition to the commentary box functions there is a built in Dante breakout box with three analogue inputs and six analogue outputs. These inputs and outputs have level controls and may be assigned to local commentary box or network functions, the SCD1010 may even be used as a standalone analogue unit. The SCD1010 can operate at sample rates of 48kHz and 96kHz and may be powered 240V mains, 12 volt or PoE. There is a built in ethernet switch.

We have dragged our beltpack range into the 2020s and now present a whole new range of units.

Utilising our new custom designed lightweight aluminium cases with beltclips the range includes:

• B-DF4 A four channel Dante 4wire beltpack
• B-FW1 Four wire beltpack
• B-HPS Headphone and speaker monitor
• B-HPA Dual/stereo Headphone monitor unit
• B-MA2 Dual low noise Microphone Preamp

The beltpacks have built in OLED displays for easy setup of their many programmable parameters. In normal use the displays show input/output levels and status for user confidence. All units may be powered by a battery or external 9-16V DC apart from the Dante four wire unit which is PoE or external 9-16V DC.

The DIO1616MA is a Dante interface unit converting sixteen analogue microphone or line level inputs to network streams and network streams to sixteen line level analogue outputs. All microphone/line level inputs have adjustable gain from +65dB to -12dB and the analogue outputs from +12dB to -12dB. The unit can also operate in AES67 mode.

There are two versions of the DIO1616MA, the 2RU XLR version primarily for use as a stage box and the 1RU version for hard wired installation.

Phantom power (48volt) may be selected to each microphone input with front panel indicators on the XLR version. Network connections may be copper and/or fibre and the unit includes full network redundancy. The DIO1616MA is PoE enabled so may be operated with or without a mains supply. All level control and phantom switching is adjusted using the built in web server. The unit operates at sample rates of 48kHz and 96kHz.

The DCD2020 is a Dante enabled Commentary box supporting 2+1 commentators. Network connection may be fibre or copper and it has full network redundancy. Mic gains and other adjustments may be made on the local lockable LCD screen or remotely via the DCD2020's web page.
In addition to the commentary box functions there is a built in Dante breakout box with six analogue inputs and eight analogue outputs. Our firmware update to v2.0 includes level controls on all analogue I/O and each one may be assigned to network or local functions. The DCD2020 can even be used as if it was a stand alone analogue unit with no network connection. With 240V mains, 12 volt and PoE powering and a built in ethernet switch the DCD2020 can truly be the hub of your commentary system.

The DIO816AES is a simple and inexpensive way to get your AES audio into and out of the Dante or AES67 network. The unit has eight stereo AES inputs and eight stereo AES outputs with level controls. It can handle 48kHz and 96kHz AES sample rates and includes a secondary port for Dante Redundancy or a switch output. Now with issue 2 firmware, the DIO816AES also operates with 48kHz and 96kHz Dante or AES67 networks.

Both ports include network activity LEDs. Level and operational adjustments are made using the DIO816AES web page.

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 a volume control.

The DPM802 has many features that may be programmed via its web page including key colours, delay time, input gains and remote control functions.
