Glensound Unveils Inferno, a Commentary Box For Dante Audio Networks

Glensound will introduce its new Inferno, a presenter commentary I/O that can be used on its own, or networked in multiples for a multi-user system. It has seven inputs for headphone monitoring and eight audio outputs: a main mic program output plus seven talkback outputs.

The routing of the Inferno I/O is all controlled by the included (and free) Dante Controller software, allowing seamless point to point and point to multi-point routing within a Dante network. All routes are stored locally on the Inferno whenever a change is made, so Dante Controller is only needed for making changes. Audio is uncompressed and at super low latency levels.

The Inferno, which is now available for $2712.50, offers network connections on CAT5 (with a main and redundant), on fiber cabling (with a main and redundant), and powering via mains AC, external DC, or via the CAT5 connection via PoE. The Inferno is rugged and very flexible.

For a self-contained network audio system, Glensound also offers the DARK 88 8 x 8 Dante audio break out box, which can act as the network audio interface for the Inferno.

At last year’s major sporting events, Glensound was the leading commentary system in use. At the football in Brazil, at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and at many other tournaments around the world, Glensound was the commentary standard.

Glensound will exhibit in NAB 2015 booth C1139.
