Ultra-low latency and solid reliability with high channel counts

The Dante Accelerator audio interface card can be installed in a computer to provide extra low-latency transfer of as many as 128 simultaneous channels of audio data, for a distinct performance advantage when communicating with Dante devices. The Dante Accelerator card also features a secondary port that can be used to provide redundant connections for failsafe reliability.
