NA2-IO-DPRO from Neutrik13472-NA2-IO-DPRO-Front-view-00.jpg

Connect legacy audio equipment with the Dante® network.

Showcased at InfoComm in Orlando
The new NA2-IO-DPRO, as introduced lately in a separate webinar, has been showcased at this years InfoComm show. The device fits in the same form factor as the NA2-IO-DLINE while adding a host of additional features requested by Neutrik’s professional users.
 

The NA2-IO-DPRO is a 2IN, 2OUT breakout box designed to connect legacy audio equipment with the Dante® network. It features hight-quality microphone preamps and 2 Dante® ports for either redundant setup or daisy chaining. Audio parameters are adjusted by the DPRO Controller app.

All connectors are lockable and, together with the removable rubber protection, offer a reliable solution for tough stage conditions. With optional mounting brackets or a rack panel, the box can be mounted below tables, in floor boxes, racks or on a truss.

Features & Benefits

  • Lockable audio and network connections
  • Connect up to two analog line or mic signals to a Dante® network
  • Connect AES/EBU signals to a Dante® network and provide an AES/EBU signal from the Dante® network
  • Feed non Dante® ready amplifiers, speakers or mixing desks with signals from the Dante® network
  • Primary and Secondary Dante® ports
  • Audio parameter control via DPRO controller software
  • Different mounting options (rack, floorbox, table mounting)
  • Requires a Power over Ethernet switch or a PoE injector (802.3 af/at - class 2 or no classification at 6 W)
Feature-packed device
In addition to the line-level connectivity of NA2-IO-DLINE, the new NA2-IO-DPRO also allows microphone-level signals (with variable gain, phantom power on/off, and high-pass filter on/off, pad) and AES/EBU signals to be injected into or taken out of the Dante network.
 
Redundancy based on Broadway chip
Whereas the current NA2-IO-DLINE is based around Audinate’s basic “Ultimo” chip (which has one Ethernet port), the new NA2-IO-DPRO uses Audinate’s more sophisticated “Broadway” chip (which has two Ethernet ports). To access these two ports, NA2-IO-DPRO features two etherCON connectors. The user can choose either “redundant” mode (where one port acts as a backup to the other) or else “switched” mode (which allows the user to daisy chain multiple devices).
 
Various control options
System control and monitoring can be performed either via Neutrik’s new DPRO Controller software, available for MAC and PC, or from the Q-Sys platform from QSC.
 

The new Neutrik NA2-IO-DPRO Dante Interface was designed in direct response to current market needs. We are very proud to offer a new network device that addresses many more applications than were possible before!
