Bittree Introduces Patch32A Dante-Enabled Audio Patchbay

Bittree has introduced the Patch 32A Dante audio patchbay, a product designed to streamline the integration of traditional analog and IP network-based audio patching.

Bittree said the Patch32A provides a ramp to instantly move 16 channels of analog audio onto and off of Dante networks.

The Patch32A serves as a bridge between legacy audio equipment and IP-based systems that use Dante media networking technology, including the Dante platform’s recently-added AES67 and SMPTE ST-2110 interoperability.

The Patch32A eliminates the complexity of analog and Dante audio patching by minimizing cabling and conversion equipment.

It comes in a 1.5RU desktop form factor and features TT patching connections for analog I/O (16x16), redundant DC power inputs, external word clock I/O, network status indicators and LED audio VU metering.
