HAWTHORNE, N.Y. and Santa Barbara, C.A. — November 10, 2015 — BTX Technologies, a value-added distributor and manufacturer of integration essentials, signal processing products and emerging technologies, and Visionary Solutions, a leading manufacturer of innovative video network solutions, have announced today that they are introducing a new line of Dante enabled products. Dante is the technology of choice by pro-audio manufacturers and integrators alike with its uncompressed, multichannel digital media networking technology with near-zero latency and synchronization. The first new product in the Dante offering is a PoE+ Network Amplifier. This subcompact 5W (4/8ohms) per channel network amplifier with Dante input is powered with PoE+, so no external power supply is required. It’s a robust unit suitable for industrial, commercial and Pro A/V installations. The amplifier is easily deployable and enables precise control of sound. Two independent channels can be sourced using any Dante audio on the network by using the Audinate Dante Controller or other third party software. It retails for $499 and is available to ship.
Two additional products will be available in December. The first is a very small form factor 2-Channel Line Level On-Ramp and a 2-Channel Line Level Off-Ramp. The On-Ramp provides two channels of balanced line level audio inputs to Dante networks using XLR connections and the Off-Ramp provides two channels of line level balanced audio output from Dante networks using XLR connections. Because these units have such a small footprint, they can be used just about anywhere. Using these solutions is a quick and easy way to expand an existing installation or provide audio in constantly changing environments including hospitality or rental and staging settings. These products are projected to retail for $395.
“Our deep experience in engineering IP based solutions made our expansion into IP based audio products a natural fit for Visionary Solutions. We are very excited about this new line of Dante products, and we will be continuing to expand this offering”, says Jordan Christoff, President of Visionary Solutions.
“BTX Technologies and Visionary Solutions worked very closely together to create these new Dante based products. They are full-featured, low cost and ideal for use within Dante audio systems. This new offering expands the BTX line of networked-based products, which is the future of AV and Broadcasting”, added Greg Schwartz, President & CEO of BTX Technologies.
Visionary Solutions’ new Dante products will be featured at the CCW/InfoComm Connections show in NYC in the BTX Booth #761. The BTX-D400PA PoE+ Network Amplifier is available to ship today, with the 2 Channel Line Level On-Ramp (BTX-D200L) and Off-Ramp (BTX-D250L) solutions shipping in December.
