More than two years in development, the DNS 8D is a new 8-channel dialogue noise suppressor that has been requested by broadcasters and other DNS users worldwide. However, it’s not just a DNS 8 Live with modified I/O – CEDAR developed a new algorithm that marries the best of the DNS 8 Live and the DNS 2 dialogue noise suppressors. Offering a slick user interface that includes standard and detailed modes of operation, it provides better control than previous dialogue noise suppressors, both from the front panel and from almost any web browser that can access its internal remote control software. With its near-zero latency and standard 4-pin 12VDC input in addition to universal mains power, it’s suitable for use in all live situations – not just broadcasting – but also for live sound in venues such as theatres, concert halls, conferences venues, and places of worship.

Dante is the de-facto standard for media networking, distributing uncompressed, multi-channel digital audio via standard Ethernet networks with near-zero latency and perfect synchronisation, so the DNS 8D incorporates a Dante interface in addition to its AES3 audio connections (DB25 using the AES59 pin-out). With fail-safe AES3 audio bypass implemented in the form of hardware relays plus support for Dante’s redundant mode of operation, it can be installed with confidence in critical paths anywhere within the audio chain.

Principal features:

  • Eight channels of the latest, most advanced dialogue noise suppression
  • Quick and easy set up plus a detail mode ideal for permanent installations
  • Dante and AES3 audio connectivity
  • Fail-safe AES3 audio bypass plus Dante’s redundant mode for critical audio paths
  • Web-based remote control for laptops, tablets, and other devices

Price and availability

The UK price will be £4,900 + VAT. DNS 8D will ship in October 2019.

Extras: DNS 8D AES breakout cable

A high-quality AES3 breakout cable for the DNS 8D, offering a DB25 connector at one end and 4 x XLR (female) plus 4 x XLR (male) at the other. This will allow users to connect the DNS 8D to equipment using the traditional XLR format. The ex-factory price will be £75 + VAT.

The DNS 8D will be launched at the IBC Convention at the RAI Amsterdam from 13 – 17 September 2019 and will be demonstrated in Hall 8 on stand 8.D98.
