Audinate’s line of Dante AVIO adapters are now shipping and are available from several online retailers, including Full Compass, Dale Pro Audio and Thomann, in addition to regional distributors around the globe.
Dante AVIO adapters “are a family of cost-effective endpoints that enable audio professionals to easily connect legacy analog and digital audio equipment to Dante networks,” according to the Audinate press release and they’ll be featured in Audinate’s booth at InfoComm 2018 [C456].
Starting with a list price of $129, the Dante AVIO series features six adapters including line-in and line-out analog adapters, a bi-directional AES3/EBU adapter and a bi-directional stereo USB adapter.
The Dante AVIO Analog adapters are available as dedicated inputs or outputs with one or two channels of audio. Analog input adapters allow mixers, mic preamps, stage DIs and more to connect to a Dante audio network, while analog output adapters are used for driving amplifiers, powered speakers or recorders.
Long runs of analog cable can be eliminated and all signal routes are managed via Dante Controller software.
The AVIO USB adapter connects any computer to a Dante audio network without additional software, providing class-compliant stereo input and output that can be used by any audio application.
Ideal for presentations and conference rooms, the Dante AVIO USB adapter may be passed between computers without altering networked audio connections.
The AVIO AES3 adapter provides stereo input/output, preserving investments in AES3-connected DSPs, mixers, compressors, preamps and more. Any AES3 device may be fully connected to any Dante network with no degradation of signal due to extraneous D/A and A/D conversion.
Audinate will hold daily drawings during InfoComm 2018, providing attendees a chance to win a free Dante AVIO adapter. Visit Audinate’s booth for more details on how to enter.
