InstallAwards 2017: Audinate set for Grand Prix

We are delighted to reveal that the winner the Grand Prix at this year’s InstallAwards is Audinate.

Although the company is just 11 years old, Audinate has made a huge impact on the world of AV, with its Dante protocol/solution becoming the unquestioned market leader in audio networking.

Founded by COO David Myers and CTO Aidan Williams, the company has been instrumental in the shift from analogue to digital with many companies now viewing Dante support within products as essential. Dante is now available in more than 1,000 commercially available products, and the list of licensed manufacturers stretches from Adam Hall to Harman, from Kramer to Yamaha.

In addition to Dante and products such as Dante Via and Dante Controller software, Audinate also provides a comprehensive programme of training and certifications both on and off line – including the very popular AV Networking World series of events.

“We are thrilled that Audinate has been selected as the Grand Prix winner at this year’s InstallAwards,” stated Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Our company was founded with a vision of revolutionising the AV industry through the use of IT technology, and 10 years later that vision has become a reality. Corporate buildings, conference centres, universities, stadiums and more have turned to Dante to reduce costs, improve audio quality and maximise flexibility, making Dante the de facto standard for audio-over-IP in the fixed installation market. We are pleased to be recognised by Installation for our accomplishments to date, and look forward to providing many more innovative products and solutions for the AV industry in the future.”

The Grand Prix forms part of the Installation Hall of Fame, which also includes the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award.

The InstallAwards take place on the evening of Thursday 29 June in the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London. For tickets and table bookings please contact Maeve Nicholson on [email protected] / +44 (0)20 3871 7378 or visit
