Studio Technologies has announced its StudioComm Dante Audio-over-IP-enabled multichannel monitoring system, comprising the Model 792 Central Controller and the Model 793 Control Console.

Model 792 Central Controller and the Model 793 Control ConsoleThe system combines a robust rackmounted main electronics unit with a desktop user control surface providing a ‘fully-pro’ signal path with programmable logic to support both digital and analogue audio. An extensive set of configuration features allow the system to support next-gen immersive formats including 5.1.4, 7.1.4, and 10.2.

The Model 792 Central Controller has multiple digital and analogue inputs with configurable time delay, source selection, and level control. Digital and analogue outputs support formats of up to 16-channels. Analogue two-channel inputs and outputs offer convenient support for stereo reference signals. Features, including trim levels, delays, dim and reference level, and pre/post outputs, can be optimised using the system’s built-in web server-based menu pages. An FPGA-based 32-bit audio architecture offers high headroom and audio quality.

The multichannel analogue I/O stems use the Model 792’s rear-panel 25-pin D-subs in banks of eight channels, while a front panel 3.5mm stereo jack and level control provides a two-channel input for laptops, phones, and other stereo reference feeds. The digital audio I/O uses two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces to support switched and redundant Dante. A separate GigE Ethernet interface provides access to the Model 792’s management web pages. These allow connection to fully-independent audio and management networks. The unit also features both universal AC mains and 10-18V DC inputs, which allow redundant power supply operation.

‘We’ve designed this system to fit easily into any professional multichannel environment,’ says Studio Technologies President, Gordon Kapes. ‘More and more studios are switching to Dante and AES67 networked audio infrastructures, but they still need to support analogue – this system provides both. As with all Studio Technologies products, users can be confident that what they hear on the output is extremely close to what went in.’
