The DS20 Audio network bridge interfaces between Milan networks and AES3 digital audio signals, while also providing distribution of Ethernet control data. This 1 RU device integrates directly into the d&b system approach, positioned in front of the amplifiers within the signal chain, and is ideally suited to both mobile and installation environments. The DS20 sends metadata including Milan channel labels and cabling information via the AES3 channel stream to the d&b four channel amplifiers. As well as providing an interface from the Milan audio network to the digital inputs of the d&b amplifiers via Ethernet, the DS20 provides four digital AES3 input channels for applications such as a break in from a Front of House console.
