The first plug-and-play endpoint that bridges AVB and Dante networks, the PreSonus AVB-D16 16x16 AVB-to-Dante Bridge enables up to 16 audio channels to be sent and received between PreSonus StudioLive Series III mixers and a Dante network.

PreSonus AVB-D16 Dante bridgeWith one or more AVB-D16s, PreSonus StudioLive Series III mixers, NSB-series stageboxes and EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers can be integrated with Dante-enabled DSPs and other Dante-enabled products, such as PreSonus’ own CDL-12 constant directivity loudspeakers.

The AVB-D16 supports AVB audio at 44.1kHz and 48kHz and Dante audio at 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz. Built-in asynchronous sample-rate conversion ensures that the AVB-D16 provides precision clock isolation between the AVB and Dante networks for pristine, clear audio with no dropouts or artifacts. This also allows different sample rates to be run on the AVB and Dante networks – a Dante network at operating at 96kHz can still carry streams between a StudioLive Series III AVB network operating at 48kHz with total confidence that the audio will be clean and error free.

There is a single AVB port on a locking etherCON connector and two Dante ports on etherCON for redundant networking. Network Link/Activity Monitor indicators enable monitoring of the data flow.

Whether looking at a Dante network set-up from Audinate’s Dante Control software or managing a StudioLive Series III AVB ecosystem from PreSonus UC Surface control software or a StudioLive Series III console touchscreen, each AVB-D16 presents itself as a simple 16x16 network device. The result is cohesive networking between the two protocols.

The PreSonus AVB-D16 is available immediately at a street price of US$599.95.
