Designed for installed use in corporate environments and hospitality venues, the Klark Teknik DM8500 provides 128 channels of Dante digital audio networking for computer-based conferencing systems using embedded USB, and can control and monitor external devices using built-in Ethernet and RS232 ports.

Klark Teknik DM8500At the heart of the DM8500 is an advanced digital audio processor designed around an open architecture format, allowing system integrators to create systems that are expandable, and virtually future-proof. Configured using DM Designer software, the entire signal and processing structure can be defined and compiled on a PC and then run within robust onboard DSP. Processing modules include dual redundant Dante/AES 67 compatible 64x64 network audio transport; Ultranet 16 channel digital audio transport output for use with compatible devices; 24 freely assignable wideband AEC processors; class compliant driverless USB audio IO; 16GB SSD media record and replay engine Mixers; Auto Mixer; Equalisers; Feedback Suppression; a variety of audio filters, and much more. DM8500 provides an audio toolkit.

The DM8500 uses wide band AEC module to detect and eliminate secondary room reflections from the signal path for clarity of programme, whether the content is speech, music, or multimedia. For meetings, conference calls and courtrooms that require the use of multiple open microphones, the DM8500 Auto Mixer and Feedback Suppressor modules automatically adjust and balance levels for multiple inputs and combine them into a single output. The onboard Feedback Suppressor behaves as a parametric equaliser, detecting and removing feedback frequencies before they can become an issue.

One-hundred–and-twenty-eight-channel dual redundant Dante/AES67 audio networking is fitted as standard- no cards or extra cost to add. Up to 64 inputs and 64 outputs can be configured, using the Dante Controller application to route this audio in real time on your network, or by using the Dante routing engine embedded in DM Designer at the design stage

The DM8500’s connectivity includes ten high-headroom analogue universal mic/line inputs; six electronically balanced low impedance line level outputs; class compliant USB audio for integration with soft codec based conferencing systems; and a 16-channel Ultranet digital audio transport output for use with compatible devices.

The CP8000UL or CP8000EU can add simple control over volume and selection for up to six inputs. The DM TCE offers a programmable network based wall control panel with colour touchscreen and encoder. Also available are the DM8008 eight-channel analogue output extender,and a 1U-high 19-inch rackmount chassis designed specifically for the Ultranet environment, making it ideal for expanding analogue audio outputs to amplifier systems.

DM8500 also features embedded control modules for compatible Lab.gruppen network amplifiers, allowing native amplifier control and monitoring from within DM Designer and from our control panel application, DM Kontrol.

Once control panels have been created, DM8500 can make use of its HTML engine to serve control pages to any networked device, wired or wireless simply by navigating to the DM8500’s IP address, via a password challenge if desired. No additional device apps are required.
