MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA—Amphenol has hopped on the Dante audio networking train, creating a new series of Amphe-Dante adapters. This range of Dante digital to analog audio adapters is meant to simplify the connection of analog equipment to Dante networks. It also includes a new cable dongle housing design for Dante-enabled products, enabling integrators to mount the adapter without additional rack or shelf space.
The Amphe-Dante adapters receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide low-latency audio through an XLR connector to analog audio equipment. Single- or two-channel options with XLR connectors are available upon release. The XLR adapters can be used to connect to audio equipment without built-in XLR connectors.
Amphenol plans to display the Amphe-Dante adapters at the upcoming InfoComm 2016 conference, which will take place from June 8-10 in Las Vegas. Amphenol will be located at booth C12012; Audinate will be at booth C11529.
