OG-DANTE-12GAM is an openGear, Dante audio embedder/disembedder, with dual 12G-SDI input and output ports providing up to 32-channels of audio embedding and 32-channels of disembedding simultaneously. OG-DANTE-12GAM provides the bridge between SDI and Dante infrastructures.
Dante audio networking provides digital audio distribution over local and wide-area networks with low latency, using standard network hardware or by connecting into a standard network infrastructure. This offers many advantages over analog, AES, and MADI infrastructures, including audio system scalability, easier installation, and simplified wiring.
A fully populated OG-X-FR openGear frame with ten OG-DANTE-12GAM cards provides an incredible 640-channels of audio bridging in a rack-mountable form factor for a wide range of needs.
OG-DANTE-12GAM provides the bridge between SDI and Dante ecosystems.
Watch this video for an introduction on the many benefits and advantages Dante audio over IP offers for embedding and disembedding to and from professional SDI workflows.
Dante audio networking provides digital audio distribution over local and wide area networking with low latency (<1 ms), using standard network hardware or by connecting into a standard network infrastructure. This offers many advantages, including audio system scalability, easier installation, and simplified wiring.
Dante also allows uncompressed, multi-channel, low latency high-resolution digital audio to be distributed across a switched Ethernet network using standard TCP/IP protocols while meeting the stringent quality requirements of professional audio.
Dante audio is the primary choice for ProAV system integrators and a growing number of broadcasters and is widely adopted by 450 manufacturers offering 2500+ Dante device types.
OG-DANTE-12GAM bridges between SDI sources and destinations with embedded audio to/from the Dante audio ecosystem. It's your SDI/Dante Gateway.
OG-DANTE-12GAM is your bridge between embedded SDI audio and Dante sources and destinations. With Dante Controller software, you can route sources and destinations wherever required across 1 GigE networks.
Embed your DAW audio outputs into your video projects for mastering and more. Disembed your SDI program's audio content and deliver across the network to drive mixers, amplifiers and more in live venue contexts.
Use Dante Controller to set up the audio routing between Dante devices and when necessary, to update your softwarre. Dante Controller shows the OG-DANTE-12GAM openGear card as 32 routable audio sources and 32 routable audio destinations.
Use this application to set up the audio routing between Dante devices, control the audio connections in the Dante setup, and move audio in real-time over an ethernet network.
Use Dante Domain Manager to manage the Dante network. It supports setting up authentication, security, and other similar attributes for management of various network architectures.
Use Dante Via to configure audio devices to appear on the Dante network; for example, making the stereo audio portion of AJA's U-TAP appear as two audio source channels on the Dante network.
Dante Virtual Soundcard emulates a physical PC or Mac soundcard, but instead of connecting to actual physical audio devices like a mic, it connects to the Dante network. It can receive audio signals from the Dante network including OG-DANTE-12GAM and present them to your DAW app just like a normal physical soundcard would.
The OG-DANTE-12GAM provides two 12G-SDI inputs and two 12G-SDI outputs alongside Gigabit Primary and Secondary Ethernet ports. OG-DANTE-12GAM automatically detects and configures to the SDI input video standard. Simple user controls in Dashboard and Dante Controller allow channel enabling and mapping to and from SDI and DANTE.
The openGear standard ensures that AJA cards will be compatible with other openGear products from certified openGear partners. With a growing list of products, openGear is the future of rackframe products.
The modular rear panel allows custom I/O connections per card (included with individual cards).
The optional redundant power supply provides a secondary power source in the event of a primary power failure.
A standard Ethernet connection allows the frame to be accessed via the Dashboard application for overall frame communication. Optional per-card Ethernet access can be installed in the frame for advanced communication with compatible openGear cards.
DashBoard software offers quick and convenient configuration and control of openGear cards on macOS, Windows, and Linux.
