MediaMatrix announces the F-DCM, a networked audio and control input/output node that supports both Dante and CobraNet audio transport protocols for efficient and convenient extension of audio and control inputs and outputs in networked systems. The F-DCM automatically determines which audio transport protocol is in use and negotiates its connection to the network accordingly via the same network connection and RJ-45 jack. The new F-DCM is a two-in/two-out network device designed for legislative chambers that can also be used in courtrooms and conference rooms. The F-DCM features two mic or line inputs on XLR or Euro connectors, each with 48V phantom power, and two line level outputs on Euro connectors. A dedicated 35W power amplifier amplifies the first output for driving local near field monitors though a pair of ¼in. phono connectors. The F-DCM also provides extension of control via either Dante or CobraNet connections, including RS-485 or RS-232 serial control and two each of GPIO in and out. The F-DCM also provides remote control of the mic level, phantom power on/off, and input mute per channel. The unit is housed in a mountable 18-gauge steel chassis. The F-DCM features an internal universal power supply (100V – 240V, 50/60Hz at 20W), which connects via an IEC connector in the rear panel.
