Studio Technologies Offers Dante Bridge For LAN Interconnectivity

Studio Technologies introduced its new Model 48D Dante Bridge, which offers an easy way to send and receive audio signals between two independent local area networks (LANs). The unit addresses the audio performance, ease-of-use, and network security requirements of both permanent and mobile applications.

Users can interconnect up to four Dante audio channels in each direction with full isolation and preservation of network security. Internal circuitry provides sample rate, timing, and bit-depth correction to maintain audio signal integrity. The Studio Technologies' Model 48D can help alleviate Dante LAN interconnectivity challenges, allowing users to enjoy the ease-of-use, excellent audio performance, and strong interoperability of Dante audio-over-Ethernet (AoE) technology.

The bridge provides four input (receiver) and four output (transmitter) channels that support audio signals with sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz, and bit depths of up to 24. Four audio channels in each direction can pass between the Model 48D’s two independent local area network interfaces when used with sample rates of 44.1 or 48 kHz. Two channels are supported when the sample rate is 88.2 or 96 kHz. Sophisticated sample-rate-conversion (SRC) integrated circuits ensure high-quality interchange of digital audio information.

The unit is housed in a lightweight 1/2-rack enclosure with its operating power coming from either a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network connection or an external source of 12 volts DC. Optional rack-mounting kits allow one or two units to be mounted in 1U of a standard 19-inch rack enclosure. Key user features can be easily configured via software application. In addition, the unit has front panel LED indicators, an LCD display, and five push button switches to allow viewing and revising of selected operating parameters.
