Vittoria is a dual-Dante digital audio network controller and engine.
According to Glensound, Vittoria was initially designed for a specific project — serving as a backbone for a large legislative debating chamber. It proved successful and was put into commercial product development.
Each of its two independent Dante networks has 32-channels of audio inputs and outputs for up to 96 kHz or 16 channels at 176.4 kHz or 192 kHz. In addition there are fully redundant power supplies and word clock in and out. Glensound says that the sample rate converters between the networks are “high-quality” and they support sampling rates between 44.1 kHz and 192 kHz. The networks can operate at different sampling rates.
Due to its original mission, to operate as part of the technical installation within a legislative chamber, the Vittoria network audio bridge has a strong firewall between the two networks. In essence one network cannot see the other network.
Glensound Managing Director Marc Wilson said, “There is increasing demand for products that provide isolated Dante networks or can work in Dante and AES67 simultaneously and independently of each other … This is something we have been asked for in recent years and we are very pleased to introduce Vittoria for this very specific but increasingly important application … and fulfills a growing need with the broadcast and sound markets.”
