Eight-channel transmitter adds compatibility with Dante and AES67 audio networks to Ultra HD-Over-IP Systems
Just Add Power (J+P), a specialist in Ultra HD over IP video distribution is showcasinging its new 3G+ 767DSS Dantee Enhanced Sound System transmitter at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019 from today.
The 767DSS distributes Ultra HD and 4K video with HDCP 2.2 over a single Cat-5e cable, and also (it claims) takes Ultra HD over IP systems to the “next level” by adding compatibility with Dante and AES67 audio networks, with separate switching of audio and video.
The industry’s first solution to support the latest Dante eight-channel chipset, the 767DSS transmitter, allows installers to input up to eight audio channels from the J+P system for playout on Dante-enabled and AES67 devices, and extract up to eight channels from the audio network for playout across the J+P system. The 767DSS is backwards compatible with legacy two-channel Dante and AES67 devices, while offering higher performance with lower compression — bitrates of 176.4 and 192 kHz — and latency as low as 0.25 ms on Gigabit Ethernet. Secondary connectivity is built in for glitch-free performance and to provide redundancy for high-availability applications.
“Dante has done for audio distribution what Just Add Power has done for video distribution, and the two together provide amazing benefits for integrators,” said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at J+P. “The 767DSS brings cross-compatibility with hundreds of Dante- and AES67-enabled solutions to the Ultra HD over IP system, allowing audio of the highest quality to be played everywhere — from video walls to Dante-enabled hanging PoE speakers — in installations of any size. Furthermore, backwards compatibility with legacy Dante and AES67 solutions helps integrators reduce costs by eliminating the need to purchase new equipment.”
The 767DSS supports control inputs with RS-232 and IR. As with all models in the J+P lineup, it integrates seamlessly with any generation of the company’s products. This allows integrators to select the J+P solution that best fits the job, providing an evolutionary, scalable, systems-approach to 4K video signal distribution.
