Being AoIP also means that the DARC Surface has access to any audio input or output on your Dante local network. Quickly select your inputs and outputs via the DARC Virtual Console software. OR swap assignments via the 4 programmable buttons on the DARC Surface.

Or receive a 5 volt input closure to perform programmed tasks. Operations like turning an On-Air light on & off, or starting your automation, can all be triggered via the I/O.
