Audinate, developer of audio networking technology Dante, has announced that over 400 Dante-enabled products from leading AV manufacturers now feature upgraded firmware that supports Dante Domain Manager.
Dante Domain Manager is the network control technology that brings new functionality to Dante networks, including user authentication, role-based security and audit capabilities, while also delivering scalability and organisation of Dante systems over any network topology.
“The number of Dante licensees that have upgraded their products to support Dante Domain Manager is truly exciting, and speaks to the value they see in it for their customers,” said Joshua Rush, SVP of marketing for Audinate. “We expect to see another large wave of products announcing support for Dante Domain Manager at InfoComm in June.”
The list of Dante Domain Manager Ready products includes products from every major audio category, including amplifiers, audio monitors, commentary systems, conference systems, digital recorders and players, digital signal processors, encoders and decoders, external clocks, I/O interfaces, intercoms, matrix switchers, mic preamps, microphones, mixing consoles, personal monitors, soundcards, speaker management processors, and stage boxes.
“The need to bring IT-level management and security to audio systems is a critical requirement for the majority of our customers,” said Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. “We worked hard to make sure we could be the first DSP manufacturer supporting Dante Domain Manager, which we now do across our Edge, Radius and Prism lines using Composer version 7.0 or later.”
