For instance, use 1 Dante port and 1 Ravenna port on an RL 128. Or use two of each on the RL256. However, it’s not mandatory to mix & match. Simply use all Dante or Ravenna ports in a single rack unit product.
The new RL Series concept offers four different models: RL64, RL128, RL192 and RL256. Each model has two modes of operation, mixing and listening. Mix up to 256 channels at 48kHz (128 channels at 96kHz), plus microphone input and AES input. Listen by selecting a channel and routing to the LR output.
Contact us for more information about mixing & matching Dante and Ravenna ports on the RL Series by Nixer.
Nixer Pro Audio recently became part of the Ravenna Partner Program!
Responding to customer requests, Nixer designed their RL-Series of 1U rack-mounted AoIP mixing & monitoring units to offer Ravenna compatibility. Every model in the RL-Series range (available in 64, 128, 192 and 256-channel versions) is configurable at purchase to be either Ravenna or Dante.
The RL-Series provides two modes of operation: a mixing mode and a listening mode. Mix up to 256 channels at 48 kHz plus a microphone input and AES input to create a 259-into-2 mixer. Alternatively, in listening mode, touch a channel and instantly route to the L/R output while canceling any previous selection.

The PLR64K by Nixer is a 64 channel Dante network monitor that makes it possible to access two independently selectable sources via a simple remote control panel.
- one OLED display displaying the selected channel name & the output signal level
- a pair of switches per output for channel selection from the list of available Dante channels
- 3 pin male XLR per output for headsets
Contact us for more information about the PLR64K and its use in language commentary positions.
Nixer Pro Audio explains how to use the routing matrix of the Nixer PD Dante. Route any of the four input sources (Main Mix, Mic/Line, AES in and Test Signal) to any of the six outputs (Headphones/Speakers, Line Out, AES Out and Dante A, B and C). Find out how in their latest video:

Nixer has recently released V 2.11 for PD Dante! This update includes a new 16 channel horizontal view, an 8 channel view and an updated Dante menu.
The new 16 channel horizontal view replaces the current 16 channel vertical view. Display long Dante channel names (up to 31 characters) and easily scroll up/down via the touch screen. For the 8 channel view, swipe left/right to easily scroll through the channels.
The updated Dante menu features the home unit displayed in blue. Now device sample rates can be changed in most modes and device names can be edited. Of course, this latest V 2.11 update for PD Dante also contains bug fixes.
Find the release notes and installation guide here.

The RL64 by Nixer is a 1U 19 inch rack mounted Dante monitoring and mixing unit. The monitor/mixer has two modes of operation.
The mixing mode is capable of mixing up to 64 Dante channels at 48kHz (32 channels at 96kHz). The microphone input (via a headphone connector) and AES input create a 67 into 2 mixer. The second mode is a simple Listen mode. In this mode, touching a channel immediately routes to the LR output and cancels previous selections.
The LR bus’ outputs are presented via inbuilt 4mm x 9mm full range speakers or via a 3.5mm headphone jack. If a headphone jack is inserted, the speakers automatically mute. Simultaneous outputs are available thanks to the stereo balanced line outputs and AES output which are accessed on the rear of the RL64 Dante via XLR connectors. The mix output is routed to the Dante output as well.
