During these unusual times there seem to be no “normal situations”. One thing that hasn’t changed though, is the need for good, clear audio. It’s even more important now with everyone wearing masks -we need to use our ears and not rely on physical cues.
Think of a standard situation: one signal needing to be distributed to a number of speakers - you have to use some sort of distribution amplifier to route signal to multiple outputs, to then deal with multiple amplifiers or using powered speakers - running a power connection in addition to the audio signal per speaker.
Enter a Dante digital audio solution based around the super-powerful Glensound Divine. Since the audio and power can run on a single cable - with the right gear you could just run 1x inexpensive (Cat5e/6) cable per speaker! Routing is done with a simple matrix-free Dante Controller software.
Let’s look at this potential setup as one example - a drive in movie theatre set up (very temporarily) at the community ball park. With a Dante-configured set up, you would need:
Route your input signal to the outputs in Dante controller. When the speakers get power they turn on, and pass signal when it’s present. That's all there is to it!
