The TASCAM ML-16D is a professional Dante-focused converter made specifically to insert or extract analog audio into or out of a Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) network using external breakout devices that utilize Sub-D format connectors.
The ML-16D has 2 D-Sub inputs and 2 D-Sub outputs, which can easily be connected to any of the many devices that utilize D-Sub connectors such as microphone preamplifiers, large and small format console mixers, audio interfaces, amplifiers, and euro block connector devices. This simple, yet elegant, solution enables audio to be quickly and easily inserted into – or extracted from – the Dante audio stream.
Primary and Secondary network connections redundancy and security
Primary and secondary connectors enable building a redundant system with a duplex network. Should the primary network route fails the ML-16D automatically switches to the secondary network route. This highly secure system prevents interruption and introduces no noise during the switch.
Flexible routing to connected Dante-compatible devices
The ML-16D uses Dante Controller to configure the main unit and to connect to other Dante-compatible devices. Dante Controller enables flexible routing configuration to other Dante-compatible devices.
