- and many more via breakout boxes (currently planned: Waves Soundgrid, AVB, AES3)
- 64x64 channels on each interface with channel-wise routing*/splitting between interfaces
- Integrated headphone amp
- Asynchronous sample rate conversion (plug-in module)
- Fully remote-controllable* via web, telnet and USB
- Extensible to future interfaces via break-out boxes
What the can do for you:
- Interface your recording gear to any signal source
- Make your production truck or OB van compatible to anything
- Use your ethernet port as 64x64 recording interface with the Dante® Virtual Soundcard technology
- Sample-rate convert between any interfaces using the SRC-64 plugin module
- Send and receive low-latency, 64x64 audio over your standard ethernet network
- Bring your legacy gear up to date
- ...and anything else you can imagine!

* Features marked with an asterix are not contained in current firmware (2.0) and will be provided later as update
We are committed to improving and extending the Multiverter with software and hardware extensions to increase the value for every customer. The features listed below are planned and will be realized step by step, depending on the demand and usefulness for a wide audience. If you have any suggestions, please let us know!
|Remote control via Web, telnet and USB + channel-wise routing||All features of the multiverter can be remotely controlled via an integrated web server, simple telnet commands or a serial USB terminal connection, ideally suited for setups where the multiverter is hidden really deep in a rack cabinet. What's more, it enables channel-wise routing between all of the interfaces - you can compose each output stream using any of the incoming channels, no matter from which input.||January 2018||Firmware update||free of charge|
|Waves Soundgrid™ extension box||The Waves Soundgrid™ extension box adds a native Waves™ interface to your multiverter. It's hooked up on the "Extension" port which provides an ultra low latency (1 sample) path into the multiverter and also supplies power to the box.||Spring 2018||External box||not yet determined|
|Universal Cat5 extension box||The Uni-Cat5 extension box supports many Cat5 protocols (DiGiCo™ MADI-TP, Soundcraft™/Studer™ MADI-TP, AES-X213 MADI-TP, AES50). It's hooked up on the "Extension" port which provides an ultra low latency (1 sample) path into the multiverter and also supplies power to the box.||Spring 2018||External box||not yet determined|
|Operating temperature||0..+70°C, non-condensing|
|Storage temperature||-40..+85°C, non-condensing|
|Power consumption||8W typ., 30W max.

|Channel count||Up to 64 per interface in x1 modes
Up to 32 per interface in x2 modes
Up to 16 per interface in x4 modes

|Latency||The table below shows the overall latency
(receive+convert+transmit) between the various interfaces in number
For x1 modes (32/44.1/48kHz), n is 1.
For x2 modes (64/88.2/96kHz), n is 2.
For x4 modes (128/176.4/192kHz), n is 4.
The Dante latency d depends on the setting in the Dante controller which should be chosen according to the network topology, and can range from 150µs to 5ms.
