New Dante-enabled PoE Modules are Truly Plug-and-Play
ORLANDO – ProCo Sound, an ACT/RHC brand, debuts its latest Dante® AoD I/O Modules, including new Dropboxes and Wall Plates in three input/output configurations, at this year’s InfoComm show (Booth 5260). Built with uncomplicated designs and the highest quality A-to-D and D-to-A converters, ProCo’s AoD I/O Modules guarantee easy delivery of studio-quality, low-latency audio delivered through any analog source or Dante network.
ProCo’s pro AV integration offerings include its AoDST-4XF (four inputs), AoDST-2XT2XM (two inputs/two outputs) and AoDST-4XM (four outputs) AoD I/O Dropboxes, which are enclosed in rugged aluminum extrusion stage boxes. Power is supplied through a standard Ethernet cable via PoE capable network switch, or from a separate PoE injector circuit. The Dropboxes feature Neutrik black XLR audio connectors and LED indicators, which display Dante system status and the “Identify Device” function. Locking Neutrik etherCON connectors ensure durability, performance and resilient cable strain relief.
Also being presented are ProCo’s AoDDP-4XM (four outputs), AoDDP-2XF2XM (two inputs and two outputs) and AoDDP-4FM (four inputs) AoD I/O Wall Plates, which can be easily installed into any pro AV and staging environments. These solutions offer the same functionality as the AoD I/O Dropboxes in a two-gang wall box design that fits into a standard two-gang deep-well J-box.
“Our newest AoD I/O Modules provide a solution applicable for a variety of installation environments and have been designed to emphasize a simplified plug-and-play user experience,” says Darius Seabaugh, vice president of marketing, RHC. “Whether you’re using our dropboxes for mobile audio delivery or Dante wall plates for installation applications, you can seamlessly integrate our modules into any project and guarantee exceptional audio quality to and from Dante networks.”
The company’s AoDoM two-channel interface (AoD-FAN3-2XM) will also be on display and features one RJ45 Dante input and two Neutrik XLR analog outputs. With resilient cable strain relief, its rugged aluminum extrusion channels offer a durable solution for providing line level analog audio signals to output devices. It is designed with a three-foot analog audio tail with Neutrik black and gold plated XLR connectors.
ProCo’s line of Dante-enabled products are compatible with Audinate’s free Dante Controller software, which automatically discovers and configures device parameters such as device names, channel labels, signal routing, sample rates and latency. All ProCo Dante AoD I/O modules support 44.1, 48 and 96 kHz sampling rates, and up to 24-bit depths.
