The Behringer X-Dante 32-Channel Expansion Card for X32 Digital Mixing Console is designed to expand the recording and routing capabilities of the mixer with Dante Audio over Ethernet systems. The card plugs into the expansion port on the back of the mixer and provides 32 simultaneous channels of low-latency, sample-accurate, bi-directional audio to 100 MBit/s or Gigabit network infrastructures with DSCP-based QoS.
The card can transfer the signal at 24-bit 48 kHz resolution and allows for audio with mixed bit and sample rates to simultaneously coexist on the network. The secondary Ethernet port connection can be set up for redundant audio networking.
Using the downloadable Audinate Dante Controller software (www.audinate.com) and the integrated Ethernet switch on the card, you can use a Mac or PC to manage audio routing and remotely control the X32 digital mixer over the network. By purchasing the Dante Virtual Soundcard software for Mac or PC (www.audinate.com), you can also record and play back up to 64 channels of audio into a multi-track DAW.
