The SPNDNT Dante Network Processor from Lectrosonics is a DSP mixer and processor for Dante networked ASPEN equipment. It features 32 digital inputs and outputs via its dual gigabit Ethernet ports. It provides automatic mixing, gain control, and delay to time align audio from different sources.

The unit can both generate clock signal and serve as a clock master, or function as a slave to the clock in another Dante unit. The SPNDNT is network plug and play and will automatically recognize other units on the network once connected. It can be connected to a secondary network for redundancy, providing a failsafe if the primary network fails.

Plug-and-Play Networking for Media Professionals

With Dante's Zero configuration protocol, you won't need a networking specialist to enter numerical IP or MAC addresses, or set up DNS or DHCP servers. Dante makes networking a true plug-and-play process with automatic device discovery and system configuration. Dante-enabled devices find each other on the network and will configure themselves, so you can skip those complicated, error-prone set-up procedures. Instead of "magic numbers," you label networked devices and their input and output signals with names that make sense to you

IP Standards Based Technology

Dante is built on global networking standards including Internet Protocols - not just Ethernet. With true IP routing, Dante technology works as an IT network capable of transporting professional quality audio and high definition video with no limits on your layout options. Dante delivers sample-accurate playback synchronization, even over multiple switch hops. Latency is extremely low whether you choose to run your Dante network with fixed latency or optimized latency. Dante makes it easy to set up robust, flexible digital audio networks with performance that scales with your network

Media Networking over Existing Infrastructure and Hardware

Dante runs on inexpensive off-the-shelf computer networking hardware, and does not require dedicated network infrastructure. Ethernet switches transmit Dante digital media streams alongside ordinary data traffic, so you can integrate professional media operations into properly designed pre-existing networks. And with Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS), your Mac or Windows computer looks and acts like any other Dante-enabled device. Just plug in to the standard Ethernet port to use digital audio processing, recording or playback software on the network

Sample Accurate Timing with Inaudibly Low Latency

Dante uses audio independent, high accuracy network synchronization standards to ensure all Dante devices are synchronized at all times. Sample accurate playback with extremely low latency and jitter is achieved without limiting your audio sample rates and network layout options

Dante Benefits
