An introduction to SQ Dante
Keith introduces the SQ Dante Card for the SQ series of digital mixers.
The card provides any SQ mixer with a full 64×64 channel, 96kHz or 48kHz interface to a Dante network.
Dante is a ground breaking, Ethernet compliant audio networking technology developed by Audinate to satisfy the increasing demands of the live sound industry for high performance audio, routing flexibility and affordable direct to computer recording. It uses CAT5 cable and standard networking components to distribute multiple streams of audio plus integrated control data with sub millisecond latency.
Dante Virtual Soundcard is software from Audinate that lets you connect up to 32 channels from your SQ at 96kHz, or 64 channels at 48kHz, directly to your PC or Mac via its Ethernet port, ideal for multitrack recording and playback, or working with popular processing plug-ins. Dante Virtual Soundcard licences can be purchased from Audinate.
Dante Domain Manager is network management software that enables user authentication, role-based security and audit capabilities for Dante networks, while allowing seamless expansion of Dante systems over any network infrastructure.
