Just Add Power (J+P) announced that its 3G+ 767DSS Dante® Enhanced Sound System transmitter earned the Best Audio Distribution Award in the Audio/Video category from Commercial Integrator at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Florida. The industry’s first solution to support the latest Dante eight-channel chipset, the 767DSS transmitter not only distributes Ultra HD and 4K video with HDCP 2.2 over a single Cat-5e cable, but takes Ultra HD over IP systems to the next level by adding compatibility with Dante and AES67 audio networks with separate switching of audio and video.
“We created the 767DSS to bring cross-compatibility with hundreds of Dante- and AES67-enabled solutions to Ultra HD over IP systems, allowing installers to deploy pristine audio in pretty much any installation scenario,” said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at J+P. “We’re honored to have our efforts recognized with this prestigious award and are grateful for the hard work of our engineering team that made it possible.”
The 767DSS transmitter allows installers to input up to eight audio channels from the J+P system for playout on Dante-enabled and AES67 devices and extract up to eight channels from the audio network for playout across the J+P system. The 767DSS is backward-compatible with legacy two-channel Dante and AES67 devices, while offering higher performance with lower compression — bit rates of 176.4 and 192 kHz — and latency as low as 0.25 milliseconds on Gigabit Ethernet. Secondary connectivity is built-in for glitch-free performance and to provide redundancy for high-availability applications.
As with all models in the J+P lineup, the receiver integrates seamlessly with FHD infrastructure, allowing integrators to mix and match J+P devices to build a future-proof 4K system that suits any application requirement.
