Set up Dante™

Prepare the system for Dante™ configuration

If your setup requires more than 11 languages see the procedure described in "Set up Dante™ routing with more than 11 languages" on page 1
If you use the Plixus network with Core functionality, you need to activate the option Automatically route interpretation channels to Dante in the Plixus Core web server. With this option all interpretation channels will automatically be assigned to a Dante™ channel.

Note that this option is only available when your setup has 11 languages or less.

When you connect the Lingua IR transmitter to another conference system with Dante™, you need to configure some settings before you can use the system. To configure these settings you have to connect all devices to same network. Use a network switch to connect the central unit of the conference system, the Lingua IR transmitter and the computer running the Dante™ controller (you can download this from the Audinate website).

Figure 1-28 All Dante™ devices need to be connected before you can configure the Dante™ routing

Make sure your computer does not have a fixed IP address. A Dante-enabled device connected to a network will automatically setup its own network configuration, including its IP address.

If the network has a DHCP server, which may be the case for installed networks, it will receive its IP configuration using the standard DHCP protocol.

On a network without a DHCP server, which may be the case for temporary or smaller networks, the Dante-enabled device will automatically assign itself an address using link local protocols, in the same way PCs and printers often do.

Configure Dante™ routing

Once the Dante™ devices are connected, you need to route the Dante™ channels from your input system to the Dante™ channels of the transmitter.

Figure 1-29 How to route the output from the conference system to the input of the Lingua IR transmitter

The Routing tab of the controller shows all Dante™ devices with their inputs and outputs. The top part shows the outputs. Here you can find the output from your conference system (1). The bottom part on the left hold all inputs together with the Dante channels of the transmitter (40 channels) (2).

Now link the output of the conference system to the input channels of the transmitter using the matrix (3). Do this by checking the box where the input and output intersect. A checkmark appears when the routing was successful.

Once you finish the configuration of the routing, this configuration is remembered on every Dante™ device. Therefore you can remove the network switch and connect the transmitter to the central engine directly.

Set up Dante™ routing with more than 11 languages

In Plixus Core it is only possible to configure up to 11 languages. If your setup requires more than 11 languages you need CoCon Interpretation and CoCon Audio Routing to configure the languages that will be available on the Dante™ channels. Use CoCon Interpretation to set up your languages and booths.

In CoCon Audio Routing you can configure which input language to route to which output channel of the microphone unit. Every input language you then also need to route to a Dante™ output channel, these will then be available on the receivers.
