Audinate, developer of Dante AV networking technology, has announced the immediate availability of the Dante AVIO Bluetooth adapter. This addition to the popular Dante AVIO family allows mobile devices and computers to wirelessly connect to any Dante audio network for playout or recording.
The Dante AVIO family of adapters allow users to easily use non-networked audio equipment on a Dante audio network. Cost effective, compact and rugged, Dante AVIO is available in 1- or 2-channel analog input or output configurations as well as AES3/EBU, USB and now Bluetooth versions.
The Dante AVIO Bluetooth adapter brings Bluetooth 5.0 performance, delivering high-quality audio from phones, tablets and computers to any audio devices on a Dante network. Pairing devices is said to be simple and straightforward, allowing for automatic connections to paired devices when in range. The adaptor is ideal for playback to larger sound systems, and for connecting networked speakers and microphones to mobile conferencing software running on tablets and smartphones.
“The new Dante AVIO Bluetooth adapter provides a cost-effective way for audio professionals to get the benefits of networking while using the familiar devices they already own,” said Mark Gerrard, senior product manager at Audinate. “Bluetooth connectivity brings Dante audio networking to the world of wireless devices.”
In addition to Bluetooth, a USB-C compatible version of the popular Dante AVIO USB adapter is slated for release soon.
