Dante is audio network technology developed by Audinate that uses network infrastructure supporting Gigabit Ethernet. Dante makes it possible to achieve high-performance digital media networks that meet the demands for sound quality and performance needed in professional live performances, audio/visual equipment, broadcasting, and recording systems.
16 inputs x 16 outputs at 48kHz used in the V-1200HD mixer
32 inputs x 32 outputs at 96kHz or 64 inputs x 64 outputs at 48kHz used in the M-5000 mixer
Transmission of up to 512 channels (at 48 kHz/24 bits)
XI-DANTE supports a maximum of 64 channels.
Ability to use standard network equipment
Accurate sample-frequency synchronization
Support for redundant networks. If the primary network experiences trouble, operation automatically switches to the secondary network.
Automatic detection of Dante devices on the network, with support for plug and play
Ability to make advanced network settings with simplicity by using the Dante Controller software
