1. You can change the channel labels but not a part of the device labels. Because they are used for the device identification of QL series. For details, please refer to this fig.

2. Please do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network.
Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts.
Therefore we strongly recommend that:

1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
2. If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.
* EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.

3. Be sure to use the switches with IGMP Snooping V3 enabled when audio data is transmitted in multicast flows.
Unicast is used by default (recommended). Only use multicast when it is necessary, and keep the number of multicast flows to a minimum.

Installation Case

Intec Systems recently completed major upgrades to the audio systems of two of New Zealand’s largest churches. Both installations were required to be easily re-configured depending on the requirements of each service with Dante providing the ideal connectivity solution.

Installation Case

Sibling-fronted pop/rock band The Dunwells has spent most of 2014 on tour. Dates in the US and a range of UK festivals were followed by the band’s Show Me Emotion UK tour throughout September. Using Yamaha QL5 digital console has made a huge difference to both the band and mix engineer Sean Murphy.
