Webinar: Dante AoIP in Voice Alarm and Paging Systems
On 10 December 2020, Audinate and Roland Hemming, RH Consulting's Principal Consultant hosted an hour deep-dive discussion on the use of Dante audio-over-IP (AoIP) in voice alarm and paging systems. They explored voice alarm requirements and regulations, and demonstrated how audio networking provides a robust, manageable platform for versatile, reliable audio systems of any size and scale.
White Paper: Dante and Voice Alarm
Dante digital audio solutions have been used for voice alarm purposes almost as long as Dante has been around, The first Dante life safety system was deployed in 2008 with 148 channels of amplification. Since that time, the flexibility that Dante offers the audio industry in general has also been proven to match those of the needs of life safety.
This white paper discusses how modern voice alarm systems can employ Dante audio networking technology to provide compliant life safety solutions worldwide.
ASL White Paper & Case Study
ASL white paper: Whilst the variety and performance of products certified to EN54 has increased considerably, the user requirements for larger project sound systems has also expanded. As such, a hybrid EN54 / Dante system is highly desirable. This can now be achieved with seamless connectivity between both systems, dramatically enhancing overall solutions.
ASL case study: The U-Arena is a multi-use 40,000 capacity domed stadium, in the heart of La Défense, a suburb of Paris. ASL partnered with its French distribution partner FreeVox and project integrator Videlio, France, to deliver a comprehensive EN54 compliant, multizoned sound system for the new arena’s public and performance spaces. This project embraces an entwined Dante™ and fully EN54 compliant, single system solution within the entire venue.
