Audinate Takes Dante AV to Next Level with Key Partnerships

Prior to ISE 2019, Audinate announced its new AV-over-IP networking solution Dante AV and it made a splash. That splash turned into a wave of enthusiasm at InfoComm 2019 where Audinate announced key partnerships that will boost the flexibility of Dante AV.

Dante Embedded Platform, in essence, allows Audinate to offer Dante-as-Software, enabling manufacturers to add full Dante functionality in software running on Linux for x86 and ARM processors. Meanwhile, the new Dante Application Library allows software developers to integrate Dante functionality directly into their PC and Mac applications.

Along those lines, QSC will begin to deploy the Dante Embedded Platform within the Q-SYS Ecosystem to enable native software-based Dante audio channels. The effort is part of the strategic partnership between the two companies announced earlier this year, Audinate points out. Meanwhile, Video call giant Zoom Video Communications will integrate the Dante Application Library into its Zoom Rooms application for video meetings.

Josh Rush, senior VP of marketing for Audinate, says Dante Embedded Platform “allows us to deliver Dante-as-software for manufacturers who are moving to more standard off-the-shelf hardware implementations” and Dante Application Library is “really targeted more at software developers and allows them to seamlessly integrate Dante functionality right into their applications. Our lead partner on that one is Zoom [as] the first partner to adopt Dante application library to integrate Dante functionality right into their Zoom application.”
