The KT-DANTE64 network module provides Audinate Dante compatibility for the Klark Teknik DN9650 and DN9652 Network Bridges, and features up to 64 or 32 bidirectional channels at 48 kHz or 96 kHz respectively. KT-DANTE64 offers high performance direct-to-computer audio recording, flexible routing and true Plug and Play technology with low latency, low jitter and sub-microsecond synchronisation. Dante is Internet Protocol (IP) compliant which allows operation over conventional Ethernet networks running on off -the-shelf computer networking hardware, and does not require dedicated network infrastructure.
Dante’s Zero configuration protocol allows Dante-enabled devices to identify and configure themselves automatically when connected to a network. Dante-enabled devices discover one another over the network and learn each other’s capabilities, including the number of input and output channels, sample rates and bit depths supported. A Dante-enabled device connected to a network will also automatically setup its own network configuration.
KT-DANTE64 is electrically and mechanically compatible with the industry standard Cirrus CM-1 format.
Dante Virtual Soundcard
Dante Virtual Soundcard allows the direct connection of a computer for recording, processing and playback using any audio application and any combination of Dante-enabled devices. Dante Virtual Soundcard uses a standard Ethernet port, so no additional audio interface hardware is required. Dante Virtual Soundcard enables audio routing to different destinations and devices for up to 64 channels of uncompressed bidirectional audio. Dante Virtual Soundcard is ideally suited for virtual soundchecks, and live playback and recording applications.
Dante Virtual Soundcard is available for Windows and Mac OS X and licenses can be purchased directly from the Audinate web site.
KT-DANTE64 features both Primary and Secondary interfaces for operation in dual redundant Dante networks. LED indicators are provided to indicate network activity and speed.
