The Williams AV BluePOD Solo Dante System Ships

The BluePOD Solo Dante is designed to simplify making conference calls in your meeting rooms with your computer, laptop and mobile phone just by tapping the Bluetooth connect button on your device. And, the volume, muting and connecting is all done on the standard volume control on your device.

BluePOD gets its name from the small pod-shaped enclosure housing the patent-pending B-WAP (Bluetooth wireless access point) transceiver. The B-WAP is equipped with a Bluetooth 4.2 aptX HD long-range transceiver – elevated by a new HD codec standard that supports 24-bit, high-resolution Bluetooth audio. The end result, according to Williams, is excellent audio quality, low latency and minimal background noise. The B-WAP provides up to a 50-foot radius of coverage when connecting your Bluetooth devices to your room’s audio system.

Integrators can add BluePOD Solo Dante into their audio system by using the Dante interface with AES67 support. The BluePOD Solo Dante analog interface can support either a balanced or unbalanced audio input and output, and is based on the Audinate UXT Ultimo chipset. This chipset supports both AES67 and SMPTE 2110. Dante’s Ultimo UXT support of AES67 and SMPTE 2110 allows integrators multiple audio options to chose from for greater interoperability with other audio equipment with their system design. This allows the BluePOD Solo Dante to be controlled by the Dante Controller, the software from Audinate for setting up and managing audio routing of Dante-enabled products on an audio network.
