Studio Technologies has announced two new Dante-to-partyline intercom interfaces, the 45DR and 45DC, cementing its commitment to Audio-over-Ethernet solutions.
The 45DR Dante to two-channel partyline intercom interface is designed for applications using two-channel analogue partyline intercom circuits, while the 45DC Dante to dual partyline intercom interface is designed for one or two single-channel analogue partyline intercom circuits. Both units easily interface partyline circuits into standard Ethernet networks.
“Our new model 45DR and model 45DC intercom interfaces bring Studio Technologies’ experience with partyline intercom to Audinate’s Dante technology, providing great performance along with simple setup, flexible configuration and network interconnectivity,” says Studio Technologies president Gordon Kapes. “With these units, party-line intercom can now join the Dante revolution.”
Dante Audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology is used by both units to transport the send and receive audio channels associated with the partyline circuits. Two 45DR or 45DC units can interconnect point-to-point by way of a standard Ethernet network; alternatively, each model can interconnect with other devices such as matrix intercom systems, DSP processors and audio consoles. Both units are directly compatible with the RTS ADAM® OMNEO matrix intercom network.
Both units can be powered by Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) or an external 12V DC source. Their lightweight, half-rack design suits portable, broadcast ‘throw down’ or rack-shelf applications, and optional front panels are available to allow one or two units to be mounted in 1U of a standard 19-inch equipment rack. To implement the Dante interface, both models use Audinate’s Ultimo integrated circuit.
