The VERTO MX is a high-quality solution to connect a wide range of MADI equipment to a Dante/AES67 network with up to 192 kHz. The ultra-compact device is an easy way, to “dantify” an existing MADI live or studio setup with 64 x 64 channel operation. It can also simply turn MADI interfaces, like the RME MADIface series, into Audio-over-IP computer interfaces.
Connected to a Dante network, the VERTO MX is immediately detected with all 128 I/Os and automatically configured. This way every room with a LAN connection can be used for recording or mixing – simply plug the device into the network and start to work.
Besides the two Dante network ports with fail-safe redundancy, the VERTO MX provides two redundant MADI ports. If one line is failing, the other one takes over – automatically, without any noticeable sample or IP packet loss.
The VERTO MX provides an additional Word Clock I/O and MIDI I/O.
Thanks to the small footprint, any VERTO converter fits into mobile setups and can be easily carried for safety’s sake as Dante connection kit for stage boxes or OB Vans. In any case its a huge problem solver for studio and live sound applications: simply plug 64 I/Os to the network. With a common CAT5/6 cable – just like that.
Additional rack mount kit.

Dante is the fastest growing Audio-over-IP Eco System, with countless compatible products from more than a hundred manufacturers.
As a Layer 3 IP-based protocol Dante can work with off-the-shelf network hardware. The usual in-house GBit LAN is perfectly suited for any Dante application with several hundred audio channels. Setting up a Dante network is typically just a matter of plugging devices into an Ethernet switch and connecting a computer for channel routing and management to the network.
A huge advantage of Dante – besides Plug & Play with automatically recognized device names – is the fabulous Dante software manager. With its help audio signals can be made available anywhere and everywhere in the network – even kilometers away. Patching and routing down to a single channel is done in software and not over physical wired links and hardware routers. Millions of audio-payloaded IP packets travel automatically to their designated destinations, with Unicast and Multicast transmission.
Dante provides ultra-reliable clocking via Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and a sophisticated clock master selection. It supports low latency operation, adjustable from 150 microseconds to 5 ms (default: 1 ms for up to 10 switches). Dante includes a suite of diagnostic tools, monitoring the network health status, e. g. device latency monitoring, active clock health monitoring, packet error reporting, and usage statistics.
Besides the main body of audio packets, Dante transmits control data. This way Ferrofish devices can be remote controlled via the network.
Dante is developed and supported by Audinate – a single company, which guarantees a standardized solution and the ongoing compatibility of all Dante-enabled products.
All in all Dante matches perfectly the requirements of any professional audio work.
