    I thought I would report back on testing of Dante for long range remote audio applications.
    I used a pair of these:

    To send 2 Dante channels over a 3km wireless link on the weekend.
    I picked it up on the other end with a laptop and could record the channels.

    I had 3 hours of glitch free recording.

    I’m not sure what the channel limit would be for a 100meg wireless link but for most purposes, 2 channels is fine for remote audio applications.

    I didn’t measure the latency as it’s not really important in this application, but I did crank the latency settings right up in all the Dante settings.

    Next time I’ll add more channels until it breaks.

    I have no practical application for this.

    But it’s cool.

    I am going to be using it for Audio distribution for a large scale airshow. I have to get audio to 5 locations distributed across 2km of runway and audience viewing areas.

    This will save a lot of cable and yellow jacket.

    Ahhh….this explains the Dante analog out post. [:D]. What do you think of their gear so far? I’ve thought about trying something from them for an access point(s).

    What band will you be running on?

    I’ve got 2 thoughts

    1) how much noise will there be from all the aircraft coms and random EMI thrown off by them? Better hope there’s no electronic jamming gizmos…

    2) it appears to be supercardioid :P http://dl.ubnt.com/datasheets/nanostationm/nsm_ds_web.pdf page 6

    the Ubiquiti gear is GREAT!!!

    Highly recommend it. Its carrier grade gear.

    Yes those AP’s are highly directional.
    I am co-ordinating the frequencies for the event so no jammers.
    Even so, nobody blocks 2.4Ghz.

    The ubiquti gear has an ‘illegal’ mode so you can boost the power to ‘insane’ levels for extremely long range. The only one doing any jamming will be me :)

    You just set the country to Estonia and it unlocks the high gain mode.

    Haha! Can we have a reply from any Estonian iLive users on what the 2.4GHz reception is like from this NZ airshow? ;) maybe as your next project you could live stream to the east coast of Australia.
