Clear-Com will give a UK debut to the new Dante interface card for its Eclipse-HX matrices (E-Dante64-HX) at BVE 2017. The card, which is compatible with Eclipse HX-Omega, Median, and Delta matrix systems, supports Dante and AES67 compatibility, allowing users to transport up to 64 channels of high-quality audio to multiple AoIP devices using standard Ethernet network infrastructure.
Each E-Dante64-HX card provides Eclipse-HX with 64 channels of low latency, high-quality AoIP interconnect. The card supports all standard sample frequencies for professional use, including a 96kHz/32-channel option.
According to the company, the E-Dante64-HX card delivers high audio quality interfacing for Eclipse-HX, routing audio to and from multiple sources over standard network infrastructure. It is typically employed to route IFB feeds to/from a mixing console to provide instruction to on-air talent.
“As IP protocols and workflows continue to gain momentum, interoperability is key to ensuring all elements can talk to each other,” said Stephen Sandford, product manager, Clear-Com.
“The Eclipse-HX Dante card is a significant development that enables dependable connection and high audio quality for any broadcast environment or production event.”
