The AE-4D is an exquisite AES/EBU input/output unit that converts up to four AES/EBU signals into four Dante audio channels and vice-versa. It has an input sample rate converter, supports audio resolutions up to 96 kHz / 24 bit and uses balanced XLR connectors for AES/EBU input and output. DSP functions in this model are limited to input and output faders and mute.
The AE-4D is part of the Tascam Dante Compact Processor Series consisting of compact, half-rack size audio converters for Dante/AES67 networks. The models easily add additional mic/line or AES/EBU inputs/outputs to Dante audio networks in public facilities, broadcasting stations, recording studios or upmarket domestic environment and can be freely combined.
Remote control is possible via two different software applications available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices: Tascam DCP Connect for configuration and Tascam EZ Connect for end users, both of which are simple to use and included with the units.
All models can be powered by PoE or an optional AC adapter. By using power daisy-chaining, two units mounted side-by-side in a rack can be powered by one AC adapter.
