FORUM IP can be equipped with AoIP input/output cards, compatible with the new AES67 standard through Audinate’s DANTE™ technology. Using this optional connectivity, it can receive and provide signals from/to other consoles, routers and other input/output terminal equipment from more than 300 different manufacturers. Multichannel connectivity can also be provided through MADI.
