Model 792 Central Controller and Model 793 Control Console

Order Code: M792 and M793

The Model 792 Central Controller with Model 793 Control Console is a StudioComm for Dante® system designed for supporting high-channel-count, advanced multichannel monitoring applications. Features include one 16-channel and one stereo Dante digital audio input and one 16-channel balanced analog input. Also includes one 16-channel and one stereo Dante monitor output and one 16-channel balanced analog monitor output. Three configurable Gigabit Ethernet network interfaces; two can be used for transporting audio (Redundant Dante) and the third for accessing the management menu system.
