The Glensound BEATRICE R16 is a versatile and fully featured 16 channel rackmount intercom with crystal clear audio designed for broadcast, theatre and professional audio applications.
It is part of our Beatrice intercom system that utilises the reliable and proven Dante network audio transmission protocol to allow real time distribution of uncompressed audio across standard networks. It is also AES67 compliant. As such the BEATRICE R16 is fully compatible with other manufacturers’ equipment using the Dante and/ or AES67 protocols.
This 1RU rackmount intercom was designed to be very easy to use for the operator and simple to set up for the technician. It includes all the basic functionality required for small intercom systems and none of the overly complex installation requirements normally associated with large systems.
The name Beatrice was chosen for our intercom range as she was the love of Dante Alighieri:
‘Dante had fallen in love with another, Beatrice Portinari (known as Bice), whom he first met when he was only nine.’
We hope that you too will fall in love with Beatrice.
