Apogee Electronics has just announced a Dante network option card for its Symphony I/O Mk II audio interface. The addition of Dante expands Symphony’s connectivity options which currently include, Thunderbolt, Pro Tools HD and SoundGrid. The Symphony I/O Mk II Dante option card uses Audinate’s Dante Brooklyn II module, which features plug and play media networking for up to 64 bidirectional channels at 48kHz.
The Dante Brooklyn II module is a full-featured solution for easily integrating the power of Dante networking into new and existing products. A single Brooklyn II module provides a complete, ready-to-use Dante interface, and can equip a networked audio device with as many as 64 channels of bi-directional digital streaming. The onboard MicroBlaze CPU includes its own Linux environment, enabling the development of custom embedded applications for device and network control and monitoring. A wide range of interfaces is supported, and Audinate’s comprehensive software toolkit streamlines integration, dramatically lowering time to market.
