Neutrik is shipping its NA2-IO-DLINE Dante I/O interface, providing two balanced XLR line-level analog inputs and two XLR line-level outs that can simultaneously feed analog signals to a Dante network, while receiving a mix from another Dante source and feeding it to non-Dante enabled amplifiers, self-powered speaker systems, signal processors, mixing consoles, etc. The NA2-IO-DLINE has lockable etherCON connections for audio and network I/O, and comes “wrapped” in a protective rubber casing for stand-alone deployment. The casing is removable, allowing use with optional brackets or a rack panel; enabling it to be mounted below tables, in floor boxes, or in equipment racks for fixed installation applications. The unit requires a Power over Ethernet switch or a PoE injector and is AES67 compliant, making it more extensively interoperable within other AES67 compliant AoIP network technologies, like RAVENNA, Q-Lan and Livewire.
