Allen & Heath and Audinate showed a Dante networking audio interface card for the iLive digital mixing series at PLASA 2010. The Dante audio interface card allows iLive systems to work with Audinate’s Dante audio networking solution, providing capacity for 64×64 bi-directional audio with full network redundancy. iLive MixRacks and modular surfaces with the RAB2 module can be fitted with the new slot-in card. A Dante Virtual Soundcard license will be included with purchases of the card, turning a PC or Mac into a Dante enabled device.
“We know from our customers that there are many iLive users who want to be able to integrate with Dante,” stated Glenn Rogers, Managing Director of Allen & Heath. “We have been pleased to work with Audinate in the development of their new 64 channel module, which will provide a great solution. The new audio interface card should be available to us in November.”
