Studio Technologies – Model 5401 Dante Master Clock

This product is discontinued and has reached “end of line”

The Model 5401 Dante Master Clock provides precise timing signals for applications that utilize the Dante® audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. The unit implements a high-performance IEEE 1588 precision time protocol (PTP) server, compatible with the requirements of Dante and capable of simultaneously supporting the timing needs of up to hundreds of Dante-compatible devices. As expected, the Model 5401 provides the PTP v1 (IEEE® 1588-2002) compatibility that’s required by Dante. In addition, the unit supports PTP v2 (IEEE 1588-2008) for AES67 applications. A word clock sync output provides a timing reference to external devices. The Model 5401 also generates up to eight sine-wave audio tones on Dante transmit (output) channels, useful during audio network installation, maintenance, and operation. A clock input connection allows the Model 5401 to synchronize with a variety of timing reference signals.
