RH Consulting’s white paper The death of analogue and the rise of audio networking included detailed research on the number of networked audio products available for different networking protocols. While CobraNet was found to be the leader, because of its heritage in the industry, Dante was not far behind and, with a far greater rate of product introductions, was set to take the lead position before long: based on the growing number of Dante licensees, RH Consulting predicts 130% growth in the number of Dante-equipped products over the next two years.
So the industry is poised on the edge of explosive growth in audio networking. However, as RH Consulting’s Roland Hemming wrote in our March issue, “The biggest challenge for digital audio networking is to get people to use it over conventional analogue connections.”
Installation has teamed up with RH Consulting and Audinate to help progress the next stage of this analysis. We want to build up a picture of the extent to which audio networking is currently used, and find out more about real-life attitudes to it. This is where we would like your help – via the survey form below: If you’re involved in audio projects, we’d like to know what you think about digital audio networking, how much you’ve used it to date, and how much you’re likely to use it in the near future. If you’ve used the technology, what advantages do you think it brings? If you’ve only dabbled in networking to date, what might make you use it more? And if there’s a protocol you’re not keen on using, what don’t you like about it? (You don’t need to give your name if you don’t want to.)
As an incentive for completing the survey, an Apple Watch Sport (38mm white model) will be given to one randomly selected respondent.
Don’t delay – survey entries close on Friday 19 June.
