Bittree Celebrates Multiple Award Wins For Dante-Enabled Audio Patchbay

The Patch32A minimizes cabling, conversion equipment and associated costs for broadcasters, recording studios, post-production facilities. Read on to find out how.

Bittree’s Patch32A Dante patchbay eliminates the complexity of analog and Dante audio patching in broadcast and professional AV infrastructures. Providing a ramp to instantly move 16 channels of analog audio onto and off of Dante networks, the new solution serves as a natural bridge between legacy audio equipment and IP-based systems using Audinate’s popular Dante media networking technology – including the Dante platform’s recently-added AES67 and SMPTE ST-2110 interoperability.

The Patch32A minimizes cabling, conversion equipment and associated costs for broadcasters, recording studios, post-production facilities and commercial AV environments including houses of worship, performance venues, large corporate offices and higher education campuses.

The 1.5RU Patch32A features TT patching connections for analog I/O (16x16), redundant DC power inputs, external word clock I/O, network status, and multi-level, LED audio VU metering. The patchbay supports 24-bit audio sampling at rates from 44.1 to 192 kHz, with high-quality analog-to-digital conversions that maximize signal integrity and audio fidelity.

The unit can interface with Dante Virtual Soundcard, more than 1600 third-party Dante-enabled devices, and almost any analog component in the same system, including audio distribution equipment, digital audio workstations (DAWs), digital signal processors (DSPs), mixing consoles, multi-track recorders and video routers.
