|DX32 digital audio bridge|
DX32 is a versatile digital audio interface and matrix designed for multiple audio applications such as multi-room recording studios, post-production facilities and audio distribution installations. It allows all digital input and output routing to be managed on a mono channel basis within a single unit or a combination of units.
With near zero latency, the DX32 can be used to expand I/O channel count and interface digital components, providing a high quality bridge between AES/EBU, MADI, Pro Tools HDX and the Dante IP audio network.
- 8 AES3 I/O interfaces, 16 channels I/O
- 1 MADI coax I/O, 64 channels I/O
- 2 optional MADI optical I/O, 128 channels I/O
- 2 interfaces for Pro Tools (TM) , 64 channels I/O
- Ethernet IP audio interface for 64 I/O channels using Dante(TM)
- High precision internal clock and PLL
- Flexible patching and routing of digital audio signals
- Stand alone IP audio interface and format converter
- Interface for major digital audio workstations
- Low latency, tightly synchronised, transport of uncompressed audio over IP networks using off the shelf switches
DX32 include a 384x384 multiplexer,enabling all digital inputs and outputs to be routed in any combination; this enables the unit to also split signals for advanced signal distribution.
IP Audio powered by Dante
The DX32 IP Audio protocol is based on the robust tried-and-tested Dante™ digital audio network
technology, and will interoperate with products of other brands that comply with Dante. The protocol will provide AVB as well as AES67
support once standardization is fully completed. The Dante and NTP IP Audio formats provide fast, flexible, and
economical audio routing via IP and are compatible with the AX32 AD/DA converter, and other Dante devices. The IP Audio routing provides Low latency, tightly synchronised, transport of uncompressed audio over Gigabit IP Ethernet Layer 3 networks using off the shelf switches, and routers for audio routing via one or more sub-nets. A total of 512 channels can be routed on a 1 Gigabit network, and more if the network capacity is higher.
DX32 is TCP/IP controlled via one of the two Ethernet ports vi the DADman Control software available for both Windows and OSX. The routing of the IP audio via Dante is done by using the Audinate Dante controller software.
DX32 is the ultimate choice for a digital audio bridge or digital format converter for recording or multi room studio applications where few or many digital inputs or outputs are needed.
Designed for flexibility, reliability, easy operation and maximum quality of sound.
DAD provides reliability, innovation and years of expirience.
