From the Manufacturer
The DAIO-816 is a 2U rackmountable input/output module for the D-Mitri® digital audio platform providing eight channels of balanced mic-level or line-level analog input and 16 channels of line-level analog output on XLR connectors. The DAIO-816 includes a high-quality preamplifier and precision A/D conversion for each input channel and a software-selectable maximum output level, as well as transport of input and output channels to and from D-Mitri’s Ethernet audio network. D-Mitri is an integrated digital audio platform that provides sophisticated mixing, playback, effects processing, multichannel distribution, live event control, and active acoustics control for a wide range of professional audio applications, including theatres, houses of worship, theme parks, and sports arenas. D-Mitri systems feature an extremely flexible and highly-programmable control scheme that can be customized with the Python® scripting language and the Open Sound Control protocol to accomplish even the most complex tasks. D-Mitri modules communicate using an Ethernet audio network, which provides guaranteed QoS (quality of service) and very low latency. Selections of D-Mitri modules can be assembled to provide nearly any configuration of digital or analog inputs and outputs and channels of processing. The DAIO-816 facilitates applications requiring analog input and output connections. The DAIO-816’s analog input circuitry accepts a wide range of input signal levels, from –57 dBu to +26 dBu and exhibits 115 dB of dynamic range. Each input channel is equipped with gain and phantom-power controllable from D-Mitri’s CueStation™ software, plus an 18 dB pad. Full-scale analog output conversion levels can be selected in software to be +16 dBu or +26 dBu.
