4-Channel Mic / Line Input Dante Converter with built-in DSP Mixer
Built-in DSP 4 mic/line input Dante converter to respond to various needs of contractor market and professional audio scene.
The MM-4D/IN-X is a compact converter that converts 4-channel mic/line input signals into Dante signals. With half the size of a standard 1U rack, the MM-4D/IN-X is suitable for different Dante systems as an exquisite analog output unit. The built-in DSP mixer enables small scale systems to fully perform with a variety of input/output models the TASCAM Dante Compact Processor Series offers. MM-4D/IN-X supports up to 96kHz/24bit and uses XLR connectors for analog mic/line input.
4 mic / line input, 4 Dante input / output
The MM-4D/IN-X converts 4-channel mic/line input signals into 4-channel Dante output signals. It also supports 4-channel Dante input/output making it possible to use audio sources within an established Dante network.
Half-rack size Dante Compact Processor Series
The Dante Compact Processor Series has a line-up of models with different input/output specifications:
MM-4D/IN, 4-channel mic/line input
ML-4D/OUT, 4-channel line output
MM-2D, 2-channel mic/line input/output
AE-4D, AES/EBU 4-channel input/output
For analog input/output models, the branch extends with units equipped with Euroblock or XLR connectors that users can choose depending on their usage. By combining multiple different units all at once, it is possible to match and introduce them into various systems.
Optimal input/output unit for different Dante systems
The Dante Compact Processor Series provide easy additional mic/line or AES/EBU input/output to several situations and places such as public facilities, broadcasting stations, recording studios, etc. where Dante systems are being used. They are the optimal input/output unit for small scale environments.
Structuring small scale systems with the DSP function
The Dante Compact Processor Series are equipped with a matrix mixer that includes a DSP feature with compressors, parametric EQs, limiter, delay, etc. functions. From the input of microphone signals to the output of powered speakers; also applicable with recording/playback systems, the Dante Compact Processor Series can build up a complete small system on their own.
Routing to each Dante device is easy via Dante controller. Input/output units can be added flexibly to new or already established Dante systems.
Compatible with Dante Domain Manager and AES67 mode
The Dante Compact Processor Series are compatible with Dante Domain Manager, which features security functions and enables the use of wide-area networks. This helps the Dante Compact Processor Series access easily to Dante systems using already established network infrastructures. With the AES67 mode, connection to AES67 network systems is also possible.
The advantages of introducing Dante Network Audio
These are some of the benefits provided when adopting Dante Network Audio:
Reduction of system costs
It is possible to have a maximum transmission of 128ch I/O with one single CAT5e cable. This leads to fewer cables needed, not to mention the reduction of costs on wiring and space for cable pits.
Improved connection flexibility
All equipment can be freely connected and routed by applying star connections.
Dante is a transmission protocol developed by Audinate. It enables multi-channel transmission (512ch IN/512ch OUT) and word-clock sync with high accuracy via network with gigabit Ethernet standard.
