The SSL Network I/O : D64 offers 32 bi-directional channels of AES to Dante AoIP connectivity

If you've run a professional shop for the last couple of decades, by now you've probably built up quite a collection of AES/EBU-equipped outboard and other gear. After all, AES/EBU is the professional's choice for returning digital effects to a DAW. But times have changed. In fact, now it's called AES3, but the big change in delivering multichannel deliver audio is the move over 150 manufacturers have made to Dante networked audio over IP. As a studio owner, you're no stranger to format changes and new technology making mincemeat of your six-figure investments. But, thanks to Solid State Logic, there's good news. With SSL's Network I/O : D64, you can hang on to all your AES3 equipment and port it over to Dante. The D64 provides 32 input/output Pairs of AES3 connectivity to Dante networks.  

SSL Network I/O : D64 - Just the Facts:

  • 32 x 32 channel AES to Dante conversion
  • Sample Rate Converters allow seamless integration of unlocked AES sources
  • Redundant power supplies and network connections*
  • Controlled via free SSL Network I/O controller app

*Network B connectivity provides a future hardware upgrade path for direct SFP (small form-factor pluggable) LC fiber-optic connection (Lucent Connectors).

SSL Network I/O Controller app

SSL Network I/O Controller software provides comprehensive remote control and status monitoring of Network I/O Mic, Line and AES3 interfaces across a Dante network. The software can be installed onto any PC located anywhere on the network. Multiple instances of the software can coexist on the network, with all instances having access to all SSL interfaces currently available on the network. The Controller application offers complete control over the extensive feature set of SSL's interfaces and acts as a communication aid with clear real-time device and channel attention indication.

SSL Network I/O Controller app key features:

  • Comprehensive control over Network I/O interfaces via Dante network
  • Clear real-time device and channel-attention indication
  • Runs on PC anywhere on the network

Dante Audio over IP

Dante IP Audio networking provides an extremely versatile solution for multi-user environments where digital audio assets are shared across multiple recording areas and control rooms. With more than 350 Dante-enabled products by more than 150 different manufacturers already released, Dante by Audinate is A/V's leading high-speed, low-latency network audio protocol. Able to use standard IT infrastructure (Ethernet cables, connections, network routers, and switches) Dante provides a cost-effective solution for audio distribution, routing, device discovery, and control. The ability to use IP audio networking offers a fresh approach to audio routing and asset sharing for audio productions offering a wide range of benefits.

Dante features and benefits:

  • Up to 512 channels @ 48kHz (256 @ 96kHz) on a single 1GB connection
  • Plug-and-play automatic discoverability of more than 500 devices from 220 different manufacturers - and growing
  • Remote Device Control lets you configure parameters anywhere on the network
  • Uses low-cost IT hardware, standard and/or existing Cat 5 or Cat 6 cabling with audio and control on the same network down a single cable
  • Ethernet/IP connectivity simplifies interfacing with a wide range of devices including Intercoms
  • Scalable systems can grow as your needs evolve. Want a bigger network? Just add another switch
  • Full network redundancy: technology tried and tested across many industries and fully compatible with all network redundancy models
  • Distributed routing control from unlimited devices or terminals
  • Analog-style workaround means that catastrophic failure of a single device will have no effect on any other devices in the network
  • IEEE and IETF compliant can mix with traffic on any standard IP infrastructure
  • With Dante committed to conform with AVB standards and with AES67, the SSL Network I/O range is ready for future networked audio developments

SSL Network I/O : D64 is easy to integrate, easy to install, and easy to use. Dante integrates media and control for your entire AV system over a single IP network. For more information, call or chat online with your PAD Studio Integrator today.
