Audinate has introduced a new interface to its Dante product family: Ultimo. Ultimo is a ready-to-use 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. The integrated chip is the industry’s most economical networked audio solution, says Audinate, and enables manufacturers to design cost-effective Dante products. As with Audinate’s other networked products, Ultimo uses low-jitter clocks with ±1μs time alignment between networked devices. Ultimo does not require specialised switches, and works with existing network infrastructure. Ultimo includes established Dante features like automatic device discovery, plug-and-play networking, network-based firmware updates, and customisation of device names and channel labels. “The Ultimo integrated chip solution accelerates the migration from analogue to digital signal distribution,” saiud Gary Southwell, Audinate’s vice president of product management. “Ultimo allows our OEMs to achieve their desired cost targets for networked low channel count endpoints for the first time. Ultimo is already a success, and is actively being designed into commercial products by many of the industry's largest and most recognized AV OEMs.” www.audinate.com
