Tascam AE-4D

4-channel AES/EBU input/output Dante converter with built-in DSP mixer
MFR# AE-4D

Product Description

The Tascam AE-4D is a compact converter that mutually converts AES/EBU signals and 4-channel Dante signals. With half the size of a standard 1U rack, the AE-4D is suitable for different Dante systems as an exquisite AES/EBU input/output unit. The built-in DSP mixer enables small scale systems to fully perform with a variety of input/output models the TASCAM Dante Compact Processor Series offers. AE-4D supports up to 96 kHz/24-bit and uses XLR connectors for AES/EBU output.

Introducing a wide range of digital equipment into a Dante system

Often used in PA/SR and pro audio environments, digital equipment compatible with AES/EBU format can be used on Dante systems. The AE-4D also includes a sampling rate converter, which enables different AES/EBU sources to be used on a Dante system.

PoE supported

Power supply can be provided to the unit via PoE (Power over Ethernet). No need for AC adaptors; power supply construction fees and installation costs can be reduced by using a PoE compatible network switch.

Remote control via control software

Controlling effects or the matrix mixer can be easily done through the dedicated control software; depending on the amount of controls the user needs, there are two types:

  • TASCAM DCP CONNECT, designed for system integrators/managers that handle the configuration and settings of an entire system.
  • TASCAM EZ CONNECT, designed for end-users and allowing them to use simple controls

Installable according to usage/environment

Units can be easily installed directly under desks or on walls with the included surface mount adaptors. With the optional rack-mountable shelf AK-RS1, up to two Dante Compact Processor models can be installed in a 19 inch rack space.

Features:

  • 4 AES/EBU input/output
  • 4 AES/EBU inputs with sampling rate converter
  • 4 Dante input/output
  • Supports PoE (Power over Ethernet)
  • Up to 24-bit/96 kHz
  • Supports Dante daisy chain; this allows two Dante Compact Processor models to be connected without a network switch

  • Flexible scene preset function allows to work in different area situations (Up to 50 presets)
  • Timer event function allows to automatically switch scenes at a specified time (planned to be compatible on a future version update)
  • 2 types of user control software available for Windows/Mac/iOS/Android devices: For integrators - input/output routing selection, DSP/design/scene settings of the complete system, etc.; For end-users: simple app design for only the necessary functions such as area volume settings, etc.
  • Remote control via Dante
  • Half-rack mountable size
  • Equipped with indicators that show LAN/Dante connection status and sample rate

Half-rack size Dante Compact Processor Series

The Dante Compact Processor Series provide easy additional mic/line or AES/EBU input/output to several situations and places such as public facilities, broadcasting stations, recording studios, etc. where Dante systems are being used. They are the optimal input/output unit for small scale environments.

Level control is available when converting AES/EBU signals and Dante signals, and managing the input/output of an AES/EBU unit makes it easier to work with Dante systems. In addition, with a matrix mixer function and effects installed in the Dante Compact Processor Series, it is possible to build up a complete small system with units from this series only.

Routing to each Dante device is easy via Dante controller. Input/output units can be added flexibly to new or already established Dante systems.

These are some of the benefits provided when adopting Dante Network Audio:

  • Reduction of system costs: It is possible to have a maximum transmission of 128ch I/O with one single CAT5e cable. This leads to fewer cables needed, not to mention the reduction of costs on wiring and space for cable pits
  • Improved connection flexibility: All equipment can be freely connected and routed by applying star connections

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
