Convenient audio management within a network ...
Due to the Dante® interface, it is possible to conveniently integrate the digital speaker management system DSM-48DT as a 2-channel receiver into a Dante® audio network. Both of the Dante® signals are available for the input channels IN3 and IN4, alternatively to the analogue inputs and the digital input. Thus, the DSM-48DT allows you to receive one stereo audio signal or two mono audio signals from other Dante®-enabled devices which are located in the same subnetwork and to process this/these in the same way as an analogue signal or AES/EBU signal.
Speaker management systems featuring analogue inputs as well as outputs and additionally provide a Dante® interface are called Breakout Boxes. In order to use the DSM-48DT as a receiver unit, it has to be connected to at least one Fast Ethernet switch (100 Mbps Ethernet).
