Lectrosonics in Rio Rancho, N.M., announces the DNT BOB 88 Dante Breakout Box ($1,905 MSRP) for use with the company’s ASPEN Dante network processor or other Dante hardware. The DNT BOB 88 is a high quality, general purpose interface designed to transmit and receive line level analog audio signals via a Dante network.
This new breakout box is offered as a choice for creating a bidirectional digital snake for stage productions, sending audio to a remote recording location in a courtroom complex, or delivering audio to remote amplifiers and loudspeakers in a stadium.
With the DNT BOB 88, analog inputs are converted to digital and appear on the network as transmit channels. Audio for the analog outputs is taken from subscriptions to transmit channels on the network from other sources. When connected to a network, each DNT BOB 88 breakout box will appear as a separate device in the Dante Controller software interface. The unit operates as a native Dante device with automatic device discovery and clock configuration using standard Ethernet hardware. High quality A/D and D/A converters ensure excellent audio quality.
The new DNT BOB 88 Dante Breakout Box features eight balanced line level analog inputs, eight balanced line level analog outputs, Dante primary and secondary ports, eight Dante network outputs, and eight Dante network inputs. The DNT BOB 88 is Gigabit compatible and ready for Audio Video Bridging (AVB).
