Audinate has announced that its new Dante Ultimo networking platform, launched in February of this year, is now shipping. Ultimo is a Dante interface for networked audio products, integrated into a single 13 x 13mm chip, which can extend the benefits of Dante networking to a whole new range of audio devices. “Ultimo has already been licensed by many of the biggest brands in the AV industry,” said Gary Southwell, VP of product management at Audinate. “We have designed Ultimo so that integration into OEM products is straightforward, shortening development times and accelerating time to market.” While Ultimo was only announced a few months ago, IED, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio, have already developed new products using this innovative new chip. "Our decision to deploy Dante is a response to feedback from customers who are specifying Dante as the desired networking solution," said Jody Green, vice president of product development at Innovative Electronic Designs, LLC. “Audinate’s networking expertise is unsurpassed, and we are excited that Dante is part of our new product suite." According to Mike Sims, marketing and sales director for Attero Tech, “Ultimo gives the green light to a wide variety of Dante end point applications. Audinate continues to add useful and forward-looking functionality to Ultimo, making it the pre-eminent audio networking solution for cost-effective, low-channel-count endpoints”. Brian McCormick, chief marketing officer at Stewart Audio added, "We can now design affordable audio endpoints for the broader market that take advantage of the network with minimal added costs.” www.audinate.com
