Neutrik interface brings analogue devices into Dante network
Neutrik has released an intelligent interface that integrates analogue signal devices within a Dante AoIP network.
The NA2-IO-Dline Interface is an end-of-network device that offers two analogue inputs and two outputs, enabling it to simultaneously integrate two analogue audio channels within a Dante network, or output a Dante stream as two analogue channels.
Converting two analogue line signals to a Dante stream and a Dante stream to two analogue line signals, simultaneously, enables the NA2-IO-DLINE to feed analogue signals to a Dante network, while receiving a mix from another Dante source and feeding it to non-Dante ready amplifiers, self-powered speaker systems, signal processors and mixing consoles.
The unit requires a Power over Ethernet switch or a PoE injector (802.3 af/at; class 1) and is AES67 compliant.
It is designed for use in extreme environments and applications and has a protective rubber casing for stand-alone deployment, which can be removed for mounting below tables, in floor boxes or in equipment racks. The unit is equipped with lockable etherCON connections for audio and network I/O.
