CEDAR Audio releases updated DNS 8 Live

Since its launch in 2012, the DNS 8 Live has been successfully adopted by the live sound and broadcast industries while scooping numerous awards along the way (including an Audio Media Gear of the Year).

After multiple customer requests, CEDAR Audio has now announced the introduction of an updated DNS 8 Live that offers fail-safe audio bypass. The bypass is implemented in the form of hardware relays that immediately connect the inputs to the outputs in the event of a power failure or other significant disruption. This means that the DNS 8 Live (rev 2) can now be installed with confidence in critical paths within the broadcast chain.

Designed specifically for live use, the DNS 8 Live dialogue noise suppressor offers near-zero latency and is suitable for use in all live situations; not just live-to-air broadcasting, but also live sound in venues such as theatres, concert halls, conferences venues, and places of worship.

The unit can be used in areas where there’s no ready access to mains power thanks to the standard 4-pin 12VDC input (remote control is provided by the DNS 8 RC software that allows users to control it using laptops, iPads and other devices that support common web browsers).
