MX2M-AUX-DANTE-32CH is a Dante and AES67 compatible input and output board for the MX2M modular matrix family. The hot-swappable IO board is seen as two distinct Dante devices from the Dante network.

Each Dante card can simultaneously send and receive 16 mono audio channels from the Dante network it is connected to via its 1GbE connectors. This makes the board capable of sending and receiving 2 x 16 mono audio channels from the same or different Dante domains with the same or different sampling frequencies.

The received audio is made available to all video and audio outputs over the audio layer of the matrix as LPCM audio streams. Similarly, the audio sent to the Dante network can originate from any of the video or audio inputs of the matrix carrying LPCM audio.

The board supports redundant operation mode where the same stream is received or transmitted over a Primary and a Secondary Ethernet connector.
