Tascam ML-16D Analog to Dante Converter
The Tascam ML-16D Analog to Dante Converter 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.
Dante is a transmission protocol developed by Audinate. It enables multi-channel transmission (512-ch IN/512-ch OUT) and word-clock sync with high accuracy via network with gigabit Ethernet standard.
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.
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.
Dante supports AES67, which enables audio connection with systems using AES67 and AES67-compatible protocols including Ravenna.
Integrated Signal/Overload indicator
The front panel is equipped with a signal/overload indicator that enables monitoring of analog input/output signals. The signal indicator turns on when a signal level becomes lower than –60 dBFs.
5 selectable reference levels which can accommodate to a variety of scenes
The TASCAM ML-16D features selectable reference level setting from 5 maximum level options: +24 dBu, +22 dBu, +20 dBu, and +18 dBu (the standard level is +4 dBu) and +15 dBu (the standard level is +6 dBu), which can accommodate to a variety of purposes including professional use in broadcasting studios, public address systems and recording environments.
