4-Channel AES/EBU Input/Output Dante Converter with built-in DSP Mixer

 

AE-4D

4 AES / EBU input / output Dante converter to respond to various needs of contractor market and professional audio scene.

The AE-4D is a compact converter that mutually converts AES/EBU signals and 4-channel Dante signals. With half the size of a standard 1U rack, the AE-4D is suitable for different Dante systems as an exquisite AES/EBU input/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. AE-4D supports up to 96kHz/24bit and uses XLR connectors for AES/EBU output.

The AE-4D is a simple converter that converts 4-channel AES/EBU input signals into 4-channel Dante output signals, or 4-channel Dante input signals into 4-channel AES/EBU input signals.

 

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

Level control is available when converting AES/EBU signals and Dante signals, and managing the input/output of an AES/EBU unit makes it easier to work with Dante systems. In addition, with a matrix mixer function and effects installed in the Dante Compact Processor Series, it is possible to build up a complete small system with units from this series only.

Flexible routing

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.

About Dante

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.
