RME Introduces Dante, MADI and AVB-Compatible Products at NAB
RME said it will take audio transmission to the next level for the live and sports broadcasting markets at NAB.
RME said the Digiface Dante and Digiface AVB are the latest additions to RME’s popular Digiface line of audio interfaces. The Digiface Dante is a 256-channel, 192 kHz USB audio interface that combines a lightweight design with Dante network connectivity, while supporting AES67.
The BNC connections provide Word Clock I/O and can be switched to work with MADI, allowing for MADI and Dante to be used simultaneously. This enables the unit to work as a simple bidirectional format converter in standalone mode.
The Digiface AVB meets the need to distribute audio over a local area network. The Digiface AVB USB audio interface uses AVB to transfer up to 256 channels of audio between PC and audio networks.
The integrated USB 3.0 connection allows up to 128 audio channels to be streamed back to the AVB network and another 128 channels to the computer — with sampling rates of up to 192 kHz. Users can adjust the channel sizes of streams between two and 32 channels as needed to ensure maximum compatibility with AVB audio devices available on the market.
