Portable Dante Network Diagnostics Tool & Audio Monitoring
The PD Dante is a 64 channel (at 48kHz) or 32 channel (at 96kHz) portable network monitoring tool that features PoE, redundant ports, AES67 compatibility, headphone amp, built-in speakers and 15-way D-Sub (2 x line outputs, AES input, AES output & remote control).
Signals of the PD Dante are presented via the built-in speakers or the headphone jack, and the speakers are automatically muted when headphones are inserted. The stereo balanced line and AES output, accessed through the 15-way D-type, provide simultaneous outputs. These outputs can be configured to either follow the volume settings of the speakers or to follow the volume settings of the headphones, or they can be set to independent levels each with their own trim controls.
Additional inputs, all of which can be routed to any of the Dante output channels, are also available: unbalanced stereo line on a 3.5mm jack, AES input through the 15-way D-type connector, mic input on the headphone connector. Lastly, the PD Dante can operate via PoE (13W) or via USB (1.5A) by a computer USB port, USB battery pack or USB mains adaptor.
