Neutrik NA2-IO-DPRO Dante Interface
The NA2-IO-DPRO is a 2IN, 2OUT breakout box for mic, line, AES/EBU signals. It features high-quality microphone preamps and 2 Dante® ports for either redundant setup or daisy chaining. There are also several remote control options available.
The NA2-IO-DPRO is a 2IN, 2OUT breakout box designed to connect legacy audio equipment with the Dante® network. It features high-quality microphone preamps and 2 Dante® ports for either redundant setup or daisy chaining. Audio parameters are adjusted either by Neutrik’s DPRO controller or a number of common control software.
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
- Setting of all audio parameters via the DPRO controller software. Yamaha CL/QL mixer, QSYS plug in and Crestron module
- Different mounting options (rack, truss, floorbox, table mounting)
- Requires a Power over Ethernet switch or a PoE injector (802.3 af/at/bt)
There are several ways to remotely control the NA2-IO-DPRO. Depending on the application, users can choose from Neutrik’s DPRO Controller software, Yamaha CL/QL digital mixing console, a control plugin for the Q-SYS platform or a module from Crestron’s application market. For further applications, a complete AES70 API is available on request.
DPRO CONTROLLER SOFTWARE
The DPRO controller gives the user not only remote control options such as level, mute, gain, phantom power, input signal and lo-cut, but also the possibility to change the device’s network settings and to update the firmware. DPRO Controller App is available for Windows and macOS, free of charge.
Remote functions for fixed installations
Neutrik’s NA2-IO-DPRO features full integration within a QSC or Crestron environment. A QSC approved control plugin as well as a Crestron module are available in the correspondent application market for free. With this, designers can fully integrate the DPRO into the Q-SYS designer software or Crestron control products to perform various controls such
as gain, phantom power, lo-cut, mute and mic/line switch. This is a convenient solution to system designers for the widely adopted QSC and Crestron environment!
Mic Preamp Control Via YAMAHA CL/QL Series Consoles
With the firmware version 5.6 for Yamaha CL & QL consoles, the NA2-IO-DPRO can be controlled from the console directly. The remote option includes phantom power, gain, and lo-cut filter. For example, using the DPRO on a truss is a convenient way to establish ambient miking with short cable runs. Remote control via Yamaha CL/QL consoles provides a real advantage within a Pro AV work environment.
