Prism Sound has announced the forthcoming availability of Dante audio networking on its Atlas and Titan multitrack audio interfaces.
Dante compatible units, which will be available from the second quarter of 2019, will be on show at the Prism Sound booth (15321) at NAMM 2019. These units feature a new Dante MDIO module and are controlled using a software app that is available for both Mac and Windows. This allows control of the unit from a computer connected to the Dante network or via the existing USB connection as appropriate.
The introduction of Prism Sound’s Dante module extends the range of I/O options for Atlas and Titan, which also includes an MDIO card option that provides a compatible connection for Pro Tools hardware.
Prism Sound has also ensured that its new Dante card and software control app can be used with all older units already in use.
Graham Boswell, sales and marketing director for Prism Sound, said: “Dante is undoubtedly the de facto standard for digital audio distribution across Ethernet networks and by enabling our flagship audio interface products to connect seamlessly with this technology we are showing a firm commitment to the future.”
About the new software control app, Boswell added: “The new software control app is a really important update, too, for existing and new Atlas and Titan users, as well as Lyra users. It provides a clearer, more user-friendly presentation in a re-sizeable window, making it easy to read on the latest 4K screens as well as on older computers.”
Users not requiring the Dante interface will be able to download the latest firmware and updated software control app free of charge from the Prism Sound website. Those wanting to upgrade to Dante can purchase the MDIO-DANTE card and then also upgrade the Atlas or Titan firmware and software control app, which will be available from the Prism Sound website at no additional cost.
