Tascam ML-16D

Now compatible with SMPTE ST 2110-30

Dante module firmware V1.2.0.0 now supports SMPTE ST-2110-30, which will enable a smooth IP transmission of PCM digital audio for structuring broadcast systems.

* Audinate's provided Dante Domain Manager (DDM) v1.1 or higher is required for the operation of SMPTE ST 2110-30.

Primary and Secondary network connections redundancy and security

Primary and secondary connectors enable building a redundant system with a duplex network. Should the primary network route fails the ML-16D automatically switches to the secondary network route. This highly secure system prevents interruption and introduces no noise during the switch.



Flexible routing to connected Dante-compatible devices

The ML-16D uses Dante Controller to configure the main unit and to connect to other Dante-compatible devices. Dante Controller enables flexible routing configuration to other Dante-compatible devices.

Possible to interconnect with AES67 and Ravenna systems

Dante supports AES67, which enables audio connection with systems using AES67 and AES67-compatible protocols including Ravenna.

Integrated Signal/Overload indicator

The front panel is equipped with a signal/overload indicator that enables monitoring of analog input/output signals. The signal indicator turns on when a signal level becomes lower than ?60dBFs.

5 selectable reference levels which can accommodate to a variety of scenes

The TASCAM ML-16D features selectable reference level setting from 5 maximum level options: ?, ?, ?, and ? (the standard level is ?) and ? (the standard level is ?), which can accommodate to a variety of purposes including professional use in broadcasting studios, public address systems and recording environments.

Flexible choice of connectors according to purposes
ML-16D is equipped with D-sub 25-pin connectors as analog line input/output connectors, and combining with optional breakout boxes enables conversion to Euro Block and XLR.


Example of conversion using Euro Block breakout box
