DirectOut goes Dante

DirectOut goes Dante

German-based pro audio specialist DirectOut unveils their first Dante device at IBC 2017. Coming from a product line all around MADI, DirectOut started to open up towards future connectivity standards as early adopter of RAVENNA. As a second network audio format Waves Soundgrid was added to the portfolio in 2016. Now, IBC 2017 sees the release of the EXBOX.MD, a small yet powerful Dante to MADI converter box.

The concept is straight and simple: take any MADI format (coaxial BNC, optical SC or SFP) and convert all 64 channels to Dante and vice-versa. The device can be powered by up to two external power-supplies as well as PoE (Power over Ethernet).

Four network ports are connected to an internal switch and give the opportunity to use Dante’s redundancy mode, while more EXBOX.MDs or other Dante devices can be connected directly to increase the number of channels. The handy size of the popular EXBOX series (1/3 of 19’’), combined with the rock-solid housing and redundant power supplies, makes the EXBOX.MD a perfect connectivity tool for touring live shows, OB vans as well as studio applications.
