A range of Dante and Ravenna network bridges from Glensound, designed for use in outside broadcast (OB) trucks.
Using Audinate’s Brooklyn II modules, Glensound Vittoria is designed to link thirty-two channels from either two separate Dante networks, Dante to Ravenna, or Ravenna to Ravenna. Vittoria can be used as a sample rate converter if the user connects the I/O to the same network.
Each of the two networks are fully isolated therefore they retain security from one another, they can operate asynchronously, and they can process different sample rates from 44.1kHz to 192kHz. Each of the two interfaces has primary and secondary connections using copper Ethernet via RJ45 EtherCON sockets, and fibre connection via SFP module slot. Vittoria is also compatible with AES67 and SMPTE ST-2110-30 formats. Typically each network interface of the Vittoria will operate on separate networks, however they can both be connected to the same network if you would like to use the Vittoria as a sample rate converter.
Separate word clock inputs and outputs are available for each Dante interface with BNC connectors positioned on the front facing panel. Redundant switch mode AC power connections are positioned on the rear facing panel in the form of IEC connections. The redundant power supplies operate on a load sharing basis whereby both power supplies are running together at a low level.

History of the name
“The Glensound Dante network audio range of products take their names from characters and places of the time of the Italian poet Dante Aligieri.
Dante was born in Florence, Italy in 1265, and the area contains many tributes to his life and work. One of the several impressive bridges in Florence is called Ponte Alla Vittoria which was built in 1835.
The Ponte Alla Vittoria joined three major provinces (Pisa, Livorno, and Pistoia), linking industries in Florence with the sea and the railway.”
