Glensound’s Divine audio monitor connects to Power over Ethernet (PoE) and boasts the latest low noise high output class D power amplifier.
Glensound said an internal digital signal Processor (DSP) takes care of the audio signals, including compression and limiting circuits, while a microprocessor provides full setup and control via a small rear panel LCD.
Control of setup and day-to-day operation of the Divine is available using the company's Windows 10 application, GlenController. It includes the ability to group multiple Divines together and control their level simultaneously.
Divine can receive up to four Dante (AES67 compliant) audio over IP (AoIP) inputs. These inputs can be selected by the user on a large clear front panel select switch. The four audio inputs can also be easily mixed together and their individual levels adjusted.
A priority system is provided to allow one (or more) of the inputs to automatically duck another. This can be useful if the user wants to monitor one source but also listen to another when audio is present.
