The DAC-288 is a digital audio transport system utilizing Audinate’s DanteTM network audio solution. The DAC-288 connects to your network with a single Ethernet cable. It is a Dante Break Out / ecoder interface in a 2RU form factor designed for all types of commercial AV installations. It offers eight channels (2 mic/line selectable) of line-level analogue in and 8 line-level analogue outputs. Precision 24-bit A-D and D-A converters are used for superb audio performance with a 119dB dynamic range at sample rates up to 192kHz. This product is used as the audio matrix, each having eight inputs, where you can send uncompressed audio with low latency using standard TCP/ IP Ethernet network. It’s remotely controlled via the network and can be placed anywhere in a facility. Unique to the DAC-288 is its Data tunneling. No other manufacturer offers this feature, which allows you to transport with the Digital audio, 8 contact closures in and 8 contact closures out together combined with either RS232 or RS485 serial data.
Each of the 8 balanced analog inputs and 8 outputs may be assigned to any Dante flow in the system,
either by means of the Audinate’s Dante Controller Windows or OSX application or Inter-M's own
S-Connect Windows Software. The S-Connect allows for system configuration as well as easy channel
switching. The S-Connect Software is designed to operate by simple touch screen.
Dual redundant Gigabit Dante Network connections are available. Both primary and secondary
connections support full Gigabyte ports for full redundancy.
Signal Monitoring is available for all 8 inputs and 8 outputs with a front panel mounded dual LEDs,
indicating signal presence and clipping. Network status LEDs also monitor network connectivity and
