Networked A/V specialist Attero Tech has introduced the unHX2D HDMI Audio-to-Dante Bridge, a Dante-enabled HDMI repeater designed to bridge two-channel PCM HDMI audio to/from a Dante audio network.
The unHX2D includes two line level analog inputs and outputs that can be independently bridged to/ from a Dante audio network. It supports 4K/60/4:4:4 video pass-through, and can also re-embed audio from a Dante network, an SPDIF optical input, or balanced line level analog inputs into the outgoing HDMI data. An adjustable audio delay buffer is included on the Dante output for audio and video lip sync. The unHX2D features flexible audio routing between system input sources and outputs, and easily facilitates bridging audio from either video sources or monitors to a Dante network.
Offering up to 170ms of stereo delay for audio-video lip sync, and user selectable EDID settings, the unHX2D typically replaces two or three pieces of equipment previously required to de-embed two-channel PCM audio from an HDMI source and bridge it to a Dante network. The unHX2D can be controlled over the Dante network for ease of integration with control systems.
Intended for applications including conferencing, control rooms, video teleconferencing, presentation rooms, classrooms and instructional facilities, the unHX2D offers simple network control protocol for integration with third-party control systems. Features include front panel indications of Dante status, HDMI connectivity, and digital audio format, and easy software configuration via Attero Tech unify Control Panel for Mac/Windows.
