MXnet 1G Encoder with Dante

Description

AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E is a Dante audio-compatible encoder for the AVPro Edge MXnet 1G Ecosystem, identical to the AC-MXNET-1G-E in baseline configuration and technical profile. System design versatility is enhanced with Audinate engineering science onboard for lossless, ADC-DAC two-channel Dante audio encoding.  The AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E will simultaneously encode stereo audio from an HDMI video source, sending HDMI audio to an MXnet Decoder and placing the Dante-encoded audio onto the Dante network for site-wide distribution to any Dante-enabled device.

AVPro Edge employs Dante’s Ultimo chipset, with an ADC-DAC process that is 100% lossless while utilizing sampling rates from 44.1kHz to as high as 96kHz, in 16-, 24- or 32-bit word lengths, for high quality, near-zero latency distribution of voice and music signaling. Transfer distance matches Ethernet at 100 meters (328 ft) with results dependent on cable quality, termination precision, and the degree of noise within the cable routing environment.

NOTE: The chassis of the AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E is necessarily ‘wider’ (when viewing the unit face straightaway) to accommodate the Dante Ultimo chipset and support circuitry. Thermally, the inclusion of these added components to the main PCB modulates the internal static operating temperature of the unit in slight to moderate increments. To convect air flow properly (and for warranty compliance), the AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E must only be installed vertically in the AVPro Edge AC-EZRACK-15.

While Dante effectively makes use of Ethernet technology for signal transmission (CAT5e or CAT6 cabling, RJ-45 connectors, and standard network switches), it is not identical to Ethernet, with Dante networks typically isolated to their own closed system environment. All AVPro Edge MXnet 1G switches may be used stand-alone for Dante network configurations. Dante and MXnet 1G systems may coexist in hybrid fashion, sharing the same network switch (proper switch configuration required).

The AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E extended chassis integrates a Dante RJ-45 network port. When powered up and connected to a Dante network the AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E becomes ‘discovered’, available to patch audio to Dante-enabled devices using Dante Controller software, including AVPro Edge AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E units system-wide, or the AC-DANTE-D decoder. Dante port LEDs indicate link status and activity.

The AC-MXNET-1G-DANTE-E consolidates the advantages of Dante audio and the MXnet 1G ecosystem into a single chassis, providing streamlined flexibility to address end-users immediate needs while providing for resourceful future expansion.
