Dante Avante!

Dante is an established audio networking protocol that allows 32 channels of digital audio to travel over gigabit Ethernet with extremely low latency. We're seeing an increasing number of manufacturers adopt the protocol including Focusrite, JoeCo, Yamaha, Sound Devices and now Lectrosonics. - GSC

Lectrosonics Introduces Aspen Dante Network Processor
32 x 32 channel Plug 'N Play network audio transport

Rio Rancho, NM - May 2012. Meeting the demand for reliable network audio transport, Lectrosonics has developed the SPNDNT network processor to expand the ASPEN digital matrix processor family. The new network processor is much more than a simple network interface. Instead, it is a full featured DSP processor that can address both the ASPEN and Dante matrices and add mixing, gain, and delay functions to the digital audio signals. Any of the 48 final mixes in the ASPEN matrix can be assigned to any one or more of the Dante channels for transport to other endpoints in the network. Dante signals can also be imported into the ASPEN matrix in a local processor sub-system for mixing with other local and network signals, and then routed onward to other local or network devices.
