AMX Debuts Enova DGX Audio Switching Boards With Dante Networked Audio Technology

HARMAN Professional Solutions’ AMX today introduced Enova DGX Audio Switching Boards with Dante integration that deliver Dante networked audio feeds to and from Enova DGX 100 Series Digital Media Switchers. The new Dante board kits expand Enova DGX enclosures with up to 16 channels of networked audio, enabling flexible audio switching between traditional AV solutions and the industry’s standard networked audio format.

Audio Switching Boards with Dante bring audio insertion and breakaway switching capabilities, as well as Dante networked-audio compatibility to the Enova DGX platform. With support for up to 16 stereo decoded inputs and outputs, users can independently route audio from traditional and networked AV sources to virtually any other directly connected or networked AV device via internal switching and standard CAT5e, CAT6 or fiber optic network connection.

Like other audio switching boards for the Enova DGX platform, Audio Switching Boards with Dante are offered in pairs, with one board providing direct Dante networked audio connections on the input side, and a separate board for the output side of Enova DGX enclosures. The new audio switching boards are available in two models, each compatible with varying Enova DGX solutions. The DGX3200-ASB-DANTE kit brings eight stereo decoded inputs and encoded outputs to Enova DGX 800, 1600 and 3200 enclosures, while the DGX6400-ASB-DANTE kit brings 16 stereo decoded inputs and encoded outputs to Enova DGX 6400 enclosures.

Enova DGX Audio Switching Board Kits with Dante will be available in June 2017. More information is here.
