Studio Technologies’ Model 5422 Dante Intercom Audio Engine is a high-performance, cost-effective solution for creating party-line (PL) intercom circuits for use with Dante-compatible products.

Studio Technologies Model 5422 Dante Intercom

Using Dante audio-over-Ethernet technology with AES67 support, the low-latency 32-bit digital processor is designed for a variety broadcast-related on-air, talent cueing (IFB), audio mixing and interfacing applications. It is available in two versions – one with 32 input and output channels and the other with 64 input and output channels. Dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces allow switched, redundant and split Dante operation, with web-based configuration and network-enabled software updating. The unit is housed a lightweight 1U-high enclosure and powered by AC mains and 12V DC.

Only a power source and an Ethernet network connection are required for the Munit to provide a powerful set of resources for a variety of Dante installations. These include fixed and mobile broadcast facilities, postproduction studios, commercial and educational theatre environments, and entertainment venues. It is compatible with many Dante-compliant devices – intercom beltpacks from Studio Technologies, such as the 2-channel Model 370, the recently-announced Model 371 and the 4-channel Model 374. When used in conjunction with the 5422, the Studio Technologies’ Models 214, Model 215 and Model 216 Announcer’s Consoles can be flexibly configured to support many on-air and live-event applications. The Model 5422 will function directly with these and other Dante-supporting devices, including matrix intercom systems, audio consoles, wireless intercom base stations and commentator consoles.

‘We chose the term “audio engine” for the 5422 to describe its set of audio input, processing, routing and output resources that can be configured to support specific intercom, talent cueing and interfacing functions,’ says Studio Technologies President, Gordon Kapes. ‘Unlike general-purpose Dante digital matrix devices, the Model 5422 is optimized to allow direct support for these commonly-required broadcast and intercommunications functions. It’s a very specialised product that allows Dante to meet yet another set of real-world audio needs.’
