Sennheiser is launching a Dante card for the EM 9046 receiver — making its Digital 9000 microphone system Dante audio-over-IP capable. Users can route the system’s high-definition audio data via Audinate’s Dante Controller.
As you may already know, Dante works with existing network infrastructure using IP and Ethernet standards and offers hundreds of channels of audio.
The EM 9046 DAN extension card is simply inserted into the expansion slot of the EM 9046 eight-channel receiver. Internally, the card features sixteen audio inputs to send the digital audio and command signals over the Dante network. Connection is via two Gbit RJ45 sockets that serve to establish two redundant network circuits or daisy-chain the signals. The card works with sampling rates of 44.1/48/88.2 and 96 kHz at a resolution of 24 bits. The EM 9046 DAN will be available from mid-October.
