Default Custom monitor mixer

Hello! first post here

I have a demanding project here. I need a small box doing the following:
-receives one XLR mic line
-receives 5 audio channels from dante (2 stereo 1 mono)
-outputs audio mixdown through 3,5mm jack
-controllable by 4 knobs (2 stereo + 1 mono from dante, +mic line)
-PoE

Is this even possible? is Dante open to that degree? I'd need 50 units, so the price is a big concern I found a similar product, but it only receives 2 lines from dante: Hear Technologies - Switch Back M8RX

Should i consider a different standard?

Thank you so much for any useful information!

A start for all things Dante. Given its target market anything Dante will often be expensive.

Yeah, i tried contacting them several times, but they don't reply.
They didn't even tell me prices.

However, what other standard do you recommend? Ravenna?

This any good? With so few channels, why the need for a multichannel protocol like AES67 or similar?

Well, i'll be using 50 of those units, so it'll be 50 microphones, and feeding them each with its own line + 3 stereo lines that they can regulate during performance.

touch screens are also not convenient for live performance (you need to look at the device) so it would need to be 4 volume knobs.

the system that runs to FOH is based on Dante, so i figured it would be easiest to just extend the in-ear monitoring with the same protocol due to latency and simplicity of system assembly/disassembly for touring.

I contacted them, but no response yet.
+ i think Ultimo only supports 4x4 channels which is not enough. I think Broadway would be better. I gave no idea of its price though...

Dante Via, sadly has 10ms of latency which is 5x too much to be useful.

A design from scratch will be expensive. A small Dante-equipped mixer will also expensive. Seems to me however you do it, it will be expensive. What kind of unit cost are you looking at?
