Solid Reliability in Any Application
Dante network protocol and a large selection of compatible products are the keys to flexible setup and high system reliability. CL series consoles and Rio I/O units can be combined in straightforward daisy-chain systems, while more complex live recording systems or systems integrated with Nuage can be built around Dante Virtual Soundcard softwa
A Flexible, Reliable Star Network
The standard Dante network uses a gigabit network switch in a star configuration. Network connections can be doubled for redundant operation so that the system remains operational even if a fault occurs in a network cable or device. If live recording is a requirement it’s easy to add Dante Virtual Soundcard and Steinberg Nuendo Live running on multiple computers. And if R series I/O racks are used with CL series consoles the Gain Compensation function makes it possible for multiple CL consoles to share Rio racks.
Live Sound + Post Production
In this example a live sound system consisting of CL series consoles and R series I/O racks is linked to a Nuage Advanced Post Production System via Dante. Dante makes it convenient to implement a fully digital networked audio system like this in hall or theater complexes that include a recording room. Although multiple CL series consoles share R series I/O racks in the system shown, the Gain Compensation function ensures that no gain conflicts occur.
A Simple Daisy-chain Network (CL/QL series only)
CL/QL series consoles have an internal 2-port switch that allows daisy-chain as well as star network configurations. A basic system of this type might consist of stage-side I/O racks connected directly to the FOH CL/QL console by a single cable. CL/QL StageMix can be used for wireless remote control. It’s easy to add live multitrack recording capability with Dante Virtual Soundcard and Steinberg Nuendo Live, for example.
