We translate our approach of maximum flexibility and modularity to the I/O side of the DHD system. We support the latest industry standards for audio signal exchange – everthing from standard analogue and digital interfaces over different multichannel solutions to completely IP-based audio networks.
Together with our well-established control signal interfaces you have all options to integrate the DHD products into your preferred infrastructure. You are not limited to a fixed amount of connections, but can add as many I/O boxes to the DHD system as required.
For advanced flexibility in device connectivity, each DHD Series 52 Core can be equipped with a XC2 AES67 RAVENNA Interface (52-7067A). Also a Dante™ Audio-over-IP interface (52-7080A) is available. With the AES67 RAVENNA interface you can use up to 128 channels of uncompressed, bidirectional audio to connect to almost any other Audio-over-IP device like codecs or signal processors via a standard ethernet network. The Dante interface supports up to 64 channels.
And by the way – all 52/XC2 and 52/XS2 cores already include a 4ch-in and 4ch-out Dante™ interface.
Transmit dozens of signals over one single cable with the following solutions:
MADI/AES10 with 56/64 channels over fibre-optic cable
3G/HD/SD SDI with 2×8 channels over coaxial cable
DHD APC with 48 channels over standard CAT5 cable
DHD Gigabit Audio with 512 channels over fibre-optic cable
Analogue and digital audio I/Os
Our high-quality digital and analogue modules allow you to connect your devices with classical I/Os:
Digital AES3/EBU XLR input/output with sample rate converters
Analogue line XLR input/output with up to 24 dBu
Microphone inputs, supporting individual switchable 48V phantom power
Control and logic exchange
There are several possibilities to get signals and logics in and out of the DHD system by means of
GPI and GPO (General Purpose Input/Output) via D-Sub
Ember+ Protocol via network
DHD External Protocol via network.
