Arista Debuts Analog to Dante and Dante to Analog Converters at InfoComm 2019

Arista Corporation introduced at InfoComm the Apollo Duo Audio-over-IP product line. Consisting of three products, the Apollo Duo product group includes the ARS-0200-A00 analog audio to Dante interface, the ARS-0002-A00 Dante to analog audio interface and the ARS-0002-A01 interface, which facilitates lip-sync delay to enable sound and picture to be synchronized.

The Apollo Duo ARS-0200-A00 two-channel analog audio to Dante interface is designed to put legacy audio gear in a Dante networked audio system and it allows for two channels of analog audio to be integrated into a Dante network. In case you need to go the opposite direction, the Apollo Duo ARS-0002-A00 converts a Dante stream into two channels of analog audio signal.

Arista’s Apollo Duo ARS-0002-A01 allows two audio signal outputs of Lip-Sync delay of up to 170 ms/ch (fs = 48 kHz) to synchronize the audio stream to the video stream. The delay control switch can add delay in the range of 0-170ms by 32 increments. The Apollo Duo ARS-0002-A01 uses XLR analog outputs.

All three are AES67 compliant, use high resolution 24-bit analog to digital conversion and they can be powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or 5VDC via a Micro USB connector. As Dante-enabled devices, the Apollo Duo products deliver bit-perfect audio reproduction and offer low latency and sample-accurate synchronization across the entire network.

All three are here.
