Audinate unveils Dante Broadway networking chip19 April 2017
Audinate has announced the release of its new Dante Broadway networking chip designed for mid-channel count audio products.
Available in 8×8 and 16×16 channel options, Dante Broadway adds Dante audio networking to products such as small mixers, power amplifiers, DSPs, hardware interfaces and conferencing solutions.
It combines the small form factor of Audinate’s Ultimo products with features from the Brooklyn II module, including latency as low as 0.25ms and support for Gigabit Ethernet. Redundancy is also supported in specific configurations for high-availability applications. With control interfaces (including SPI, UART and GPIO), plus support for Dante Device Protocol, packet bridging and AES67, Dante Broadway can connect an audio product into the growing ecosystem of Dante-enabled products.
“As Dante adoption has continued to accelerate, our manufacturer customers are looking to integrate Dante networking more broadly across their product line,” said David Myers, COO of Audinate. “We are pleased to add Dante Broadway to the range of solutions we offer, giving OEMs a cost-effective way to add Dante to mid-tier channel count products.”
