d&big Networkshop in Backnang, Germany: small print


Participants should be experienced in tackling sound engineering problems and should want to extend their expertise with a focus on digital audio networks. They should have solid experience in handling PC-based computer systems. Participants should have previously attended a d&b workshop dealing with the R1 software and be familiar with handling R1. Please bring your own laptop running at least Windows 7 or higher or OS X 10.7 or higher with an RJ45 network port or adapter..

The goal

Participants will gain practical experience to confidently set up a d&b Remote network utilising IP-based Ethernet networks paying particular attention to their different basic configurations and topologies. Efficient configuration options are demonstrated as well as the use of protocols, such as Dante and OCA. All this will provide a general overview to reliably link d&b systems with audio signals and control networks.


  • Introduction into the basics of digital audio signal engineering, its special features, and hardware requirements.
  • Demonstration of the DS10, an audio network bridge for digital audio and data transmission. The possible applications and characteristics of the DS10 are presented.
  • Fundamentals about IP-based Ethernet data networks. Basis of every network, with or without audio. Topics here are topology, distribution, settings, and network rules.
  • Dante basics. Insight into the world of Dante audio networks, their integration, function, setup, and configuration.
  • Integration of the DS10 in a Dante audio network, and integration in the d&b system.
  • Explanation of redundant setup in a network with regard to existing hardware and its possibilities.


The content is conveyed in a format that uses practical examples and encourages participants to exchange experiences and play an active role.
