Audinate reveals Dante Analog Output Module

Audinate has announced the immediate availability of the Dante Analog Output Module – a complete, small-form-factor PCB that allows for rapid development of Dante-to-analogue endpoints.

Manufacturers can use this module in a variety of small footprint enclosures with appropriate analogue connectors to rapidly bring finished products to market.

The module supports one RJ45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analogue outputs. It is able to receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via balanced output connectors to analogue audio equipment.

Any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, DSP, or other analogue audio device. Adapters (for example XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without the required built-in connectors.

“At Audinate we are committed to enabling digital networking throughout the entire audio signal chain,” stated Joshua Rush, vice president of marketing and product. “The Dante Analog Output Module provides the perfect foundation for manufacturers to easily build adapters to add analogue endpoints to the Dante network.”

The module features a digital-to-analogue converter, and supports a range of sample rates and bit depths. It can also provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network.
