In a significant move for the development of IP networking, Audinate has announced the addition of video to its Dante solution with the Dante AV Module.
Dante AV is a complete, integrated audio and video networking solution offering ease of use and integrated control, among other benefits. Dante AV enables complete interoperability with more than 1600 Dante-enabled audio products already on the market.
Utilising a single network clock for sub-microsecond accuracy, Dante AV enables independent routing of audio and video signals in a single interface using Dante Controller software. Manufacturers can also take advantage of Dante API to customise their management user interface.
The Dante AV Module supports one video channel and eight bi-directional channels of uncompressed Dante audio. It is particularly suitable for manufacturers creating 1G video-over-IP products and includes Dante control, transport and synchronisation.
For manufacturers wishing to get a product to market quickly, the module is available with the Dante AV Product Design Suite, facilitating a complete AV over IP endpoint product design.
Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate, said: “Customers want us to bring the ‘V to AV’. With Dante AV, we are excited to make that a reality. The Dante AV Module and the Dante AV Product Design Suite will enable manufacturers to quickly get integrated audio and video products to market, with all of the benefits Dante has to offer.”
