PreSonus has announced that its StudioLive AI-series consoles and StudioLive RM-series Active Integration mixers can now be upgraded to support Audinate’s Dante audio networking protocol, using the PreSonus SL-Dante-MIX option card.
Dante is the preferred audio networking solution that has been adopted by more pro-audio AV manufacturers than any other networking technology, with over 500 devices currently available that support the protocol. Dante-enabled StudioLive Active Integration mixers allow users to create a complete, networked audio system with any Dante-enabled audio device, using a standard 1 GB Ethernet switch and Audinate’s Dante digital-media networking technology, which also includes Dante Virtual Sound Card for Mac® and Windows® computers.
With the addition of Dante support to StudioLive AI mixers, customers can also now build complete, all-PreSonus, networked live-sound solutions that feature StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers or WorxAudio® TrueLine powered line arrays.
The SL-Dante-SPK option card for PreSonus StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers began shipping in October 2014, and a Dante option will be available in December 2015 for the WorxAudio TrueLine powered line arrays and WaveSeries loudspeakers with PDA1000 and PDA2000 amplifiers.
The SL-Dante-MIX option card for StudioLive AI mixers has a suggested U.S. retail price of $599.95 USD and is now available from select retailers or direct from PreSonus.
