How many Dante channels does the MXA910 present to a DSP such as a Biamp Tesira? Do I need to allocate 8 channels of DSP per MXA910 (8 lobes per unit)? Or, would each MXA910 take one channel on a DSP?
There is a choice. Technically, the MXA910 presents 9 Dante channels - 8 individual lobes, plus an automix of all 8 lobes. So, the installer can either take each lobe as an independent channel into the Tesira, or the automix as a single input. It all depends on whether or not the installer wishes to treat each lobe as a unique microphone.
