The d&b audiotechnik DS10 Audio Network Bridge is designed to provide 16 AES3 output channels via Dante audio transport protocol through Ethernet, four AES3 input channels and an integrated five-port network switch for use with the power company’s amplifiers

d&b audiotechnik DS10 Audio Network BridgeUsing the DS10, multiple channels can be sent from a mixing console to the amplifiers using a single network cable. At the amplifiers, it distributes the audio signals to the amplifiers’ AES3 inputs. The DS10 also sends metadata, such as Dante channel labels and cabling information via the AES3 channel stream to the latest generation of d&b amplifiers for simplified routing and troubleshooting.

Four AES3 input channels enable use as a Dante break-in from an FOH console. Additionally, the DS10 offers a Bypass mode, which allows operation as an AES3 splitter, directly distributing the four AES3 input channels to all AES3 outputs. The wide-range power supply is suitable for mains voltages 100–240V, 50–60Hz, and features overvoltage protection of up to 400V.

The DS10 features an integrated five-port switch, with options for a primary and redundant network, as well as further connectivity for external devices such as a laptop to access the d&b Remote network and control amplifiers using d&b R1 remote control software. It can transport both audio and remote control data via the same network cable. All four channel d&b amplifiers [the D80, D20, 30D and 10D] can be controlled via Ethernet using the Open Control Architecture protocol (OCA), providing a high bandwidth and a quick response time for fast and accurate adjustment. These four channel amplifiers provide comprehensive Digital Signal Processing capabilities including two 16-band EQ and up to 10s of delay for each channel, as well as set-ups for d&b loudspeakers.

‘d&b is now even further up the signal chain, straight from the console with all the signal processing carried out within the d&b amplifiers,’ says d&b Product Manager, Vicent Perales. ‘Remote control data and audio can now be sent to the d&b amplifiers via the DS10, which guarantees simplicity in operation and flexibility in use. This device really opens up the functionality of the d&b amplifiers, and enables seamless interoperability of Dante enabled devices with d&b systems.’
