NEUTRIK Introduces New Dante I/O Interface

The new NEUTRIK intelligent NA2-IO-DLINE Interface enables integration of analog signal devices within a Dante AoIP network in just a few easy steps.

This new end-of-network device offers two analog inputs and two outputs, enabling it to simultaneously integrate two analog audio channels within a Dante network or output a Dante stream as two analog channels. “The ability to feed and transmit signals at the same time eliminates the need for investment in new devices,” says Frick.

Converting two analogue line signals to a Dante stream and a Dante stream to two analog line signals, simultaneously, enables the NA2-IO-DLINE to feed analog signals to a Dante network, while receiving a mix from another Dante source and feeding it to non-Dante ready amplifiers, self-powered speaker systems, signal processors, mixing consoles, etc.

The unit requires a Power over Ethernet switch or a PoE injector (802.3 af/at; class 1) and is AES67 compliant, which enables it to be used more extensively with other AES67 compliant AoIP networks.

The NA2-IO-DLINE is optimized for use in extreme environments and applications, offering the usual NEUTRIK standards of robust construction and protection. The unit comes ‘wrapped’ in a highly protective rubber casing for stand-alone deployment; this can be removed, allowing it to be used with optional mounting brackets or a rack panel, enabling it to be mounted below tables, in floor boxes or in equipment racks for fixed installation applications. In addition, the unit is equipped with lockable etherCON connections for audio and network I/O.
