The Soundweb London BLU-DA offers Dante / AES67 audio and BLU link. This means that the BLU-DA can be used to ‘add’ Dante / AES67 to one or more BLU link devices. The BLU-DA is configurable through HiQnet™ Audio Architect. A rich palette of logic objects and a “drag and drop” method of configuration provide a simple and familiar design environment. The BLU-DA features Dante and AES67 audio. The BLU-DA is capable of simultaneously transmitting and receiving up to 64 channels of Dante or AES67 audio (64 x 64). Primary and Secondary ports are provided for fault tolerance. Control is through a separate Ethernet port. The BLU-DA also includes support for Dante 4.0 firmware for integration with Dante Domain Manager. The BLU-DA also features BLU link, a low latency, fault tolerant digital audio bus of 256 channels, which uses standard Category 5e cabling giving a distance of 100m between compatible devices. Fiber media converters can be used to increase the distance between devices to over 40km. A bi-directional locate function allows devices to be identified both from and within HiQnet Audio Architect. The BLU-DA and the other members of the Soundweb London family provide the building blocks of the perfectly tailored system solution. This signal processor is EN 54-16 Compliant for life safety applications.
The BSS Audio 1U Rack-Mount Kit allows up to two half-rack Soundweb London devices—BLU-BIB and BLU-BOB1—to be mounted on a shelf occupying a single rack space. The 1U Rack-Mount Kit can accommodate one BLU-BIB device, one BLU-BOB1 device, two BLU-BIB devices, two BLU-BOB1 devices, or one of each device. With each device offering eight channels of analog I/O expansion, the 1U Rack-Mount Kit allows for higher I/O density (16 channels) in a single rack space. For instances in which only one I/O expander is mounted, the included half-rack blanking plate can be used to fill the blank space in the front of the rack.
