Links To Dante Compatible Network Or DARK88 Break Out Box
Inferno can be used on its own when connected to a Dante audio network. Many audio routers, consoles and intercom systems are Dante compatible, and will accept the Inferno link, enabling Glensound grade commentary into the audio network.
There are primary and secondary Dante network connections
Inferno can also be used outside of a dedicated Dante network when connected to one of our DARK or AoIP44 break out boxes. This connection can be direct or across a structured network. The DARK or AoIP44 units allow all of the audio inputs and outputs to be located in a place separate from the Inferno.
Programmable On A Dante Audio Network
When connected to a Dante network, sources and destinations can be configured from any part of the network using the free Dante controller software. Details are available at www.audinate.com.
Seven Talkback Circuits
The seven illuminated talkback buttons route the audio input to 7 different destinations and remove the audio from the main programme output.
Eight Input Headphone Mixer
Seven external sources plus sidetone are presented on eight level controls allowing the user to create their own required monitoring mix of all sources. Each input can be independently selected to be on the user's left ear, right ear or both ears. The headphone connection is available on a 3.5mm and a 6.35mm jack socket.
The single input is switchable on the rear panel to be line/mic/48v and has adjustable input gain. The input also features Glensound’s Referee compressor limiter system. This applies a variable rate compressor to the input peaks so that no clipping occurs, without affecting the rest of the audio signal.
The Inferno contains a web server, allowing remote functionality to an engineer from any PC connected to the network via any web browser. Enter the IP address of the Inferno in the browser for remote control of the front end mic gain. It also allows configuration of each push button on the unit to be on/off latching, momentary (push to talk), always on, and off when pushed (cough), or in an intelligent mode where a short press latches or a longer press is just momentary.
15 segment LED PPM Meter
Audio input level is indicated on the 15 segment PPM meter.
Power On Dante Link Or Locally
Inferno can be powered via the network audio connection if it conforms to the PoE standard. There is also an internal 100v-240v mains supply.
Based on industry standards, Dante is an uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology, with near-zero latency and synchronization. Dante is the preferred audio networking solution that has been adopted by more pro-audio AV manufacturers than any other networking technology. Interoperability is not a dream of the future, but a reality today. Hundreds of Dante-enabled products are available from the world’s leading manufacturers, enabling you to mix devices from multiple manufacturers.
Economical and Versatile
One cable does it all. Dante does away with heavy, expensive analogue or multicore cabling, replacing it 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.
Dante systems can easily scale 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.
Since audio is transmitted digitally, you don’t have to worry about the common analogue challenges of interference from other electrical equipment, crosstalk between cables, or signal degradation over long cable runs.
Easy To Install
Setting up Dante networks couldn’t be easier. You no longer have to shudder when considering the deployment of an audio network. Even the most complex networks can be set up and configured quickly and easily with Dante, making system integration simple. Dante automatically handles the technical complexities for you.
Signal routing and system configuration with Dante is fast, simple, and incredibly flexible. Dante Controller is a powerful software application that manages devices on the network. Setting up a Dante network is typically just a matter of plugging devices into an Ethernet switch and connecting a computer to the network. All Dante devices are automatically discovered and displayed in Dante Controller, so you can be up and running in seconds.
Easy to Use
With Dante Controller you can easily edit device names and channel labels, control sample rates, and set device latencies. There is no longer any need to remember device IDs or channel numbers. Instead, a single audio channel is referred to just like an email address: “commentatorA @ studio or ”news_mic @ voboothA”. Set it and forget it. Once the network is configured, the computer running Dante Controller can be removed from the network, and reconnected only if changes are required or system monitoring is desired. Signal routing and other system settings are stored safely in the Dante devices themselves, so they are automatically restored if a device is power-cycled.
Network Health and Management
Real-time information about the health of your network is essential for a proper understanding of its performance. There is a rich suite of diagnostic tools within Dante Controller, providing visibility into the network health status through features such as device latency monitoring, active clock health monitoring, packet error reporting, and bandwidth usage statistics.
Many Dante-enabled devices support 'glitch–free' redundancy, enabling a secondary physical network to be provided, duplicating the audio traffic on the primary network. This automatically prevents any audio loss or interruption in the event of a connectivity problem on the primary network.
Unicast or Multicast
Dante audio channels can be configured as unicast or multicast as appropriate, to make best use of available bandwidth. Unicast provides a direct point-to-point stream for unique channels; multicast sends an audio stream to multiple devices simultaneously.
Fully Integrated with Windows and Mac OS X
With Dante Virtual Soundcard, your computer becomes a Dante audio interface for multitrack recording and media playback, using the computer’s existing Ethernet port — no additional hardware is required. Digital Audio Workstations, software-based media players, Skype, iTunes, Pandora, Spotify and other applications are easily integrated into your network via Dante Virtual Soundcard.
