Rane drops in the Dante™ pool with the EXP2x Expander for the HAL1xDante

Rane Corporation and Audinate introduce the Rane EXP2x Dante Expander for Rane’s HAL1x at InfoComm in Las Vegas. Use the EXP2x to interface a HAL1x System with a Dante network. Applications abound in houses of worship, installed sound, performing arts venues, education and corporate environments. The EXP2x allows connecting a Dante network between facilities or multiple independent HAL1x systems.

The EXP2x is the latest addition to the HAL System family and supports 32 receive and 32 transmit channels. Built-in sample rate converters support 48 kHz or 96 kHz sample rates on the Dante network. Daisychain up to sixteen EXP2x devices to a single HAL1x to max-out at 512 x 512 channels on both the Dante network (on a single cable) and the HAL1x’s Expansion Bus.

The EXP2x is equipped with a Secondary Dante port for either Redundant Mode or Switch Mode. Use Dante Controller software for all network audio and EXP2x Brooklyn II card management. Use Rane’s Halogen software to configure the HAL System’s customizable HTML Web Controls, 3rd-party- & knob-based DR remotes, HAL presets, and vast DSP such as drag and drop acoustic echo cancelling, ambient noise compensation, mixing, ducking, routing and filters galore.

Front panel and Halogen software indicators for Dante connection, network status, flow active, and audio signal present aid troubleshooting. Dante Controller provides all network setup, monitoring, control, diagnostics and troubleshooting beyond compare; while Halogen reads, but does not edit the Dante setup, simplifying which software to use and eliminating conflict.

Dante provides a no-hassle, self-configuring with ultra low latence, while providing a true plug-and-play digital audio network using standard Internet Protocols on existing infrastructure — without requiring a dedicated network. The technology is built on global networking standards, making signal distribution more flexible, cost-effective and user-friendly and has been used at some of the largest live events and sophisticated installations worldwide.

The EXP2x requires Halogen version 5, available free to download here.
