Glensound To Display New Additions To Its Range Of Dante® Products

News Image
Glensound is to display new additions to its range of Dante® products ensuring that the company maintains its leadership in bespoke solutions for the interpretation and commentary sectors.

IBC will see the first international showing of the completely new Charles Interpreter Unit which adds networked audio to this important product category. As with all Glensound products, it is designed to precisely cater for the needs of a single translator whilst providing significant redundancy for power and Ethernet to ensure the message is delivered. Experience gained with other Interpreter units has defined the advanced specification. Dual PoE connections plus a mains and DC input provide the security needed to keep the unit live at all times and there are RJ-45 connectors on the rear panel for primary and secondary Dante connections. A floor input from the Dante network and XLR sockets for the translator’s microphone are featured with network output for the microphone only, the floor plus microphone, and two talk outputs completing the I/O. Single button selection of the talk outputs allows the user to flip/flop between them as required for multiple languages.

A year of top sporting and international events serves as a reminder of the importance of commentary units for any broadcaster. As a major supplier of commentary units, Glensound has shipped thousands of its various CU-001 variants, so features and usability are assured, but the ability to take advantage of the extra functionality that networked connections offer suggested that including a Dante Brooklyn board would be a valuable addition. This important upgrade adds one more device to the many Glensound products that are already in the range. The CU-001 Dante is a 3-user unit with direct analogue outputs that mirror the Dante connections. Either direct or mixed mic outputs are provided along with 3 talkback outputs. An advanced limiter circuit makes sure that over exuberant commentators do not clip their channels. As with Charles, there are primary and secondary Dante ports to ensure that the network connections are robust in addition to the analogue mirroring. Power is backed up by the addition of a DC input on XLR in addition to the standard IEC connector. The commentators can hear each other with adjustable gain on the headphones and they have full control over their levels and set-up.

Glensound's entry into the eSports market has been spectacular with the GTM unit perfectly specified for the unique requirements of this rapidly expanding user base. Networked connections are key here, so Dante is once again a part of the package. GTM is a product precisely designed to fit the workflow of the eSport teams and participants and not a product adapted fit and lacking some essential features that might contravene the rules. The GTM now also features a noisegate on the input to prevent audio from the arena bleeding into the comms mix.

Other successful Dante products will be on show including the innovative DIVINE Intelligent Network Audio Monitor. This can monitor up to 4 incoming Dante/AES67 streams with channel selection, EQ and a host of other control and monitoring functions. GlenController can be employed once again to remotely control the units.

Portable products take a hammering, so the popular AoIP22 has been repackaged to include soft plastic end caps and a tougher case to keep this handy interface working in a rough world. This analogue to Dante /AES67 interface handles 2 channels in and out and is PoE powered.
