Magewell launches Pro Convert Audio DX encoding solution with Audinate Dante compatibility

Magewell has recently announced the Pro Convert Audio DX multi-format IP audio encoder, decoder, and capture device.

It is the company’s first solution with integrated support for Audinate’s Dante audio networking.

The hardware provides users with audio conversion between Dante, NDI, and SRT protocols. It also bridges analog audio, software, and IP networks.

This new solution will be showcased in stand 5H200 at the ISE 2023 exhibition in Barcelona from January 31 to February 3.

By enabling conversion between Dante, NDI, and SRT, Pro Convert Audio DX enables mixed-technology local and remote production workflows that combine products supporting different standards and formats.

Pro Convert Audio DX can also serve as an audio capture device when connected via USB to a laptop or desktop computer.

“Magewell is recognized as a leader in the networked media space, so adding Dante is a natural evolution of their product portfolio,” said Joshua Rush, CMO for Audinate. “We are thrilled to welcome Magewell into the Dante ecosystem and look forward to further innovations from them.”

The virtual audio matrix in the solution browser-based interface allows users to route or mix any analog or IP-based input channel to any analog, IP, or UAC output. Multiple units can be centrally configured and controlled through the Magewell Cloud multi-device management software.

“By letting users easily convert between multiple audio-over-IP technologies and seamlessly bridge traditional and IP audio infrastructures, Pro Convert Audio DX frees them from needing to worry about which audio types their chosen tools support,” said Will Chen, Product Manager at Magewell. “Dante is one of the most important networked audio technologies in professional AV, production, and broadcast markets, and we’re excited to support it in this versatile device.”
