The Dante/Quad Channel Audio PoE Gateway from MuxLab permits non-Dante compatible analog audio equipment to interface with Dante compatible professional audio equipment. It can be used to transmit dual two-channel or quad single-channel full-range audio—20 Hz to 20 kHz—over the network to Dante. In addition, dual two-channel or quad single-channel balanced analog audio signals may also be received from Dante compatible equipment in the same manner.
The unit may be connected via Cat 5e/6 cable up to 330' from an Ethernet switch. The Dante/Quad Channel Audio PoE Gateway includes four single-channel balanced analog audio-in and four single-channel balanced analog audio-out ports via phoenix connectors. The quad single-channel balanced analog audio-in ports may be connected to line-level balanced analog audio signals or to line-level balanced microphones.
Furthermore, the quad single-channel balanced analog audio-out ports may be connected to balanced analog audio amplifiers supporting line-level inputs, such as a zone amplifier (100W), or to two pairs of powered speakers for direct sound output. Finally, the Dante/Quad Channel Audio PoE Gateway can be powered by a PoE Ethernet switch. Cables and a power supply are not included.
