DiGiCo has adopted Audinate’s Dante digital networking solution and will launch two Dante enabled products at the Pro Light & Sound show in Frankfurt.

‘The first, an eight channel I/O module for the SD-Rack, is something we believe the industry would expect from DiGiCo,’ says Managing Director, James Gordon. ‘The module allows our users to drop audio on and off a Dante network for connection to system control, amplifiers and general audio networks. The second is a little more unexpected and comes from our Solutions Division in the shape of Dante DMI – DiGiCo Multichannel Interface – card.’

Audinate’s Dante is a high-quality transport system for media over standard IT networks, that uses standard internet protocols. Dante also offers a migration path to upgrade to new standards such as the IEEE Audio Video Bridging (AVB). The Dante DMI card can be added to either a D-Rack or SD-Rack and allows the user to connect the I/O rack, via Cat5, to a standard PC or Mac.

Using newly released DiGiCo-Control software, all the functions of the rack can be controlled via a standard network connection. This control includes preamp gains, 48V phantom and access to most DAWs for recording via the Dante network. All of this is enabled via one Cat5 cable, with the ability to have a second connection offering redundancy of recording.

‘DiGiCo has been at the forefront of many innovations over the years and we are proud it has chosen Dante as its Digtial Networking Solution’, says John McMahon, Audinate VP of Sales and Support. ‘The new eight channel I/O module for the SD-Rack, and the DiGiCo Multichannel Interface card, are exciting new products that enhance end users capability to use Dante in more ways.’

Applications that can take advantage of this functionality and straightforward recording include broadcast, live touring, studio recording, rehearsal rooms and multiple fixed installation environments. ‘This is a big move for DiGiCo,’ says Gordon. ‘We feel that it is a clear statement that we are not only a console manufacturer, but a digital solutions company.’
