StudioLive Series III… now with Dante

Onboard AVB-networking and the AVB-D16 make it possible to add Dante functionality to your StudioLive Series III mixer without the unnecessary hassle of an internal option card. Simply connect one or more AVB-D16 AVB-to-Dante bridges to your existing StudioLive Series III AVB network to add 16 channels of Dante I/O with each bridge. AVB-D16 makes the vision of plug-and-play functionality between audio networks a reality!

One endpoint, two networks

Whether you’re looking at your Dante network setup from Audinate’s Dante Control software or managing your StudioLive Series III AVB ecosystem from UC Surface or a StudioLive Series III console touchscreen, the AVB-D16 presents itself as a simple 16×16 network device. This lets you easily patch up to 16 audio sources on your StudioLive Series III mixers or NSB-series stage boxes to any available input on your Dante network and receive 16 channels of audio from your Dante network to route to your StudioLive Series III mixers, EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers, or the outputs on your NSB-series stage boxes, creating a truly cohesive networking experience between the two protocols.

One endpoint, two sample rates

With built-in Asynchronous Sample Rate Conversion, the AVB-D16 provides precision clock isolation between the AVB and Dante networks. This ensures pristine, clear audio with no dropouts or artifacts. It also allows you to run different sample rates on the AVB and Dante networks. So even if you’re operating a Dante network at 96kHz, you can still connect streams between your StudioLive Series III AVB network operating at 48kHz with total confidence that the audio will be clean and error free.
