At the 2015 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Avid announced that Audinate has joined the Avid Connectivity Partner Program to develop a new Dante option card for the VENUE | S6L live sound system.
The Avid VENUE | S6L system features a modular platform connected via an Ethernet AVB backbone, with hardware expansion options to connect to a wide variety of formats, including Dante. The new DNT-192 Dante Option Card is currently in development.
Dante is the market-leading audio networking solution developed by Audinate that delivers uncompressed, multichannel digital audio with near-zero latency. More than 200 manufacturers across the live sound, installation and pro audio markets support the Dante protocol.
“The introduction of the DNT-192 Dante card is a result of the close collaboration between Avid and Audinate,” states Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Avid is an innovative market leader in the live sound, production, and broadcast industries. We value the strong partnership between our companies which enabled us to quickly bring a Dante networked solution to market.”
