As a result of the creation of the UK-based Audinate Limited, the company now has offices in Europe, the USA and Australia. The latest expansion is said to reflect the “widespread industry adoption” of Dante – the media networking technology that is increasingly being described as a “migration path” towards AVB.
David Myers (pictured above), Audinate’s COO, remarked: “Audinate has built a reputation as the best digital media networking solution and we are recognized by our customers and partners for our responsive support. As a result of this expansion, Audinate can provide around the globe support for our OEM Partners.”
To assist developments in Europe, former Britannia Row digital and RF department head Kieran Walsh has joined Audinate as senior technical solutions manager. Closely involved with numerous legendary live events, including Led Zeppelin’s 2007 reunion at the O2 and the London segment of the Beijing-London Olympic handover ceremony, Walsh has worked extensively as a sound engineer, producer and orchestral player.
“We are pleased to have Kieran help our European expansion,” said John McMahon, Audinate’s v-p of sales and support. “Kieran brings a wealth of day-to-day experience of deploying Dante systems for some of the largest events and concert tours over the past few years.”
Walsh himself remarked: “I am looking forward to the new opportunities that Audinate presents. I have always been impressed with Audinate and look forward to helping a larger audience implement the power of Dante’s integrated network solutions”.
