Amphenol has added Dante audio networking to its lineup with its introduction of Amphe-Dante adapters. To be unveiled at InfoComm (June 8-10, Las Vegas Convention Center), the Amphe-Dante range of Dante digital to analog audio adapters are engineered to simplify the connection of analog equipment, including amplifiers and loudspeakers, to Dante networks. Importantly, its unique cable dongle housing design is a world-first for Dante-enabled products, allowing systems integrators to mount the adapter without the costs and labor of additional rack or shelf space.
Amphe-Dante adapters receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via an XLR connector to analog audio equipment. Any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the XLR outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, digital signal processor (DSP), or other analog audio device.
The initial release offers a single- or two-channel option with premium XLR connectors and a durable molded housing. XLR adapters (for example XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without built-in XLR connectors, ensuring flexible options for customers.
