Discovery is not part of the AES67 scope. When using equipment with native SAP announcements, such as Dante to Q-LAN the discovery process is straightforward. When connecting devices using differing discovery protocols such as Dante to Ravenna or Livewire...
MixRack Update Procedure via Computer Important: MixRack should not be connected to a surface 1. Download the latest dLive firmware from www.allen-heath.com and save the .zip file. 2. Remove any previous dLive firmware from your USB drive. To do this...
The best place to start is the Dante FAQ section on the Audinate website. [http://www.audinate.com/] If you can not find the answer to your problem there then please contact your local Allen&Heath distributor [http://www.allen-heath.com/distributors]
What do Link Activity, Stream Lock and Healthy Link mean? * Link Activity means that a digital signal has been detected on the cable (not necessarily MADI could be an AES stream) * Stream Lock means that a valid MADI signal has been found. * Healt...
This is a complex question to answer. Dante fundamentally is one of many different types of network traffic. To use a more widely understood analogy, one could ask "Can I plug my analogue console into the same mains feed as the lighting dimmers?" The an...
Dante Via is an Audinate software for routing computer-based audio into Dante networks. The following are some application examples relating to Allen & Heath digital mixers. INTEGRATING A QU MIXER INTO A DANTE NETWORK The Qu USB audio interface is r...
The dLive fibreACE module can operate with both OM3 and OM4 fibre cables. OM3 and OM4 cables are identical in most aspects with the only difference being reduced signal attenuation on the OM4 variant allowing for longer cable runs. A 150m drum of OM3 ca...
No, we do not support the use of the M-DL-ADAPT 'letter box' interface without an audio networking card installed (i.e. M-DANTE, M-ACE, M-WAVES, M-MADI etc) Doing so can result in unpredictable behaviour.
Allen & Heath stocks the following Neutrik cable for use with fibreACE modules: AH10924 150m drum of X-Treme multimode fibre with Neutrik opticalCON Duo locking connectors. Neutrik offers different grades and lengths up to 500m. We recommend opticalCON ...
The dLive MixRack and Surface support up to 40 TCP connections each. Surface connections include any IP6/IP8, 3 screen apps, and Director (depending on Director mode). The MixRack supports 1 surface connection when running 1.52 or earlier. MixRack con...
The A&H Super Madi (M-DL-SMADI) card supports the use of 4 fibre links. These are presented on SFP sockets, not all MADI over fibre is the same, rather than building the transceiver into the SMADI card and locking you to one type of optical connection, ...
GIGAACE gigaACE is a Gigabit Ethernet point-to-point connection (1000BASE-T, IEEE 802.3ab), Layer 2 compliant. Layer 2 network switches and media converters can be used, provided they support Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T) connections. DX EXPANDERS ...
On dLive, we compensate the bus processing latency so that no matter the internal routing, all signals are phase aligned on the mix outputs. For example: * Input to Group to Mains is aligned with Input to Mains * Group to Aux to Matrix is aligned ...
In some cases it's useful to do a full factory reset of the MixRack. This is done by accessing a set of 4 DIP switches, inside the I/O port on the C Class, or inside Power 2 on the S Class (see photos) * Reset occurs with Switch 1 in ON position and ...
Layer 2 network switches and media converters can be used, provided they support Fast Ethernet (100Base-TX) connections (ACE and dSNAKE are Ethernet 802.3 IEEE [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.3] Layer 2 compliant) Typical applications include par...
There are many software applications that can detect Wi-Fi interference; one of the best known applications is IN_SSID_ER [HTTP://EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG/WIKI/SERVICE_SET_(802.11_NETWORK)]. [http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider [http://www.metageek.net/pro...
Allen & Heath can provide a range of pre-assembled, approved CAT and fibre cables. Please see here [http://www.allen-heath.com/ahproducts/cat5/] for more information. Recommended Cables for A&H digital mixers Different cables are used with our mixers d...
The SQ (v1.1.0 +) can send and receive audio with the Qu (v1.93 +) over the dSnake protocol.
In some circumstances it may be useful to connect to a MixRack over a WAN connection. dLive Director uses ports 51320 - 51325 UDP AND TCP these should be forwarded by your NAT to the IP address of the dLive.  By default this is 192.168.1.70 and can be ch...
