Lectrosonics has developed the SPNDNT network processor to expand the ASPEN digital matrix processor family. This product is basically a DSP processor that can address both the ASPEN and Dante matrices and add mixing, gain and delay functions to the digital audio signals. Any of the 48 final mixes in the ASPEN matrix can be assigned to any one or more of the Dante channels for transport to other endpoints in the network. Dante signals can also be imported into the ASPEN matrix in a local processor sub-system for mixing with other local and network signals, and then routed onward to other local or network devices.
Audinate is one way networks are connected, transporting high-quality media over standard IT networks. Audinate’s Dante products deliver a “self-configuring” plug-and-play digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols. Dante provides a migration path to upgrade to new standards such as the IEEE Audio Video Bridging (“AVB”). The Dante network provides plug ‘n play simplicity with auto discovery and master/slave configuration to synchronize the system clock.
