Audinate Strengthens Dante Domain Manager with New Version Release

Audinate recently introduced an update to Dante Domain Manager that company officials say “provides advances in diagnostics and usability, extended auto discovery for legacy devices, and increased support for larger networks,” according to the press release.

Dante Domain Manager is Audinate’s award-winning network management solution, praised for “bringing enterprise-grade system administration to the AV world, making audio networking more secure, scalable and controllable than ever before.”

“This technology provides AV and IT professionals with the ability to define specific AV device groupings by room, building and site, through the creation of independent Dante Domains,” according to the Audinate press release.

“Each domain has multiple access levels to improve network security, and enables scalability by allowing audio routing across multiple IP subnets.

“Available in three editions, Dante Domain Manager can be tailored to meet user needs and budgets while maintaining the agility, scalability and security necessary to create a trusted audio network.”

“Since its introduction to the market earlier this year, Dante Domain Manager has been extremely well received by OEMs, integrators and end customers,” said Joshua Rush, senior VP of marketing and products for Audinate, in the company announcement.

“These new enhancements make Dante Domain Manager that much more valuable by providing additional features that enhance the scalability and ease of use of the platform.”

Larger Installs and Expansion Packs

For larger Dante installations, customers can purchase expansion packs for the Platinum Edition to support up to 1,050 devices per instance of Dante Domain Manager.

The automatic device discovery service that customers have grown accustomed to with 4.0 firmware devices, has now been extended to legacy (pre-v4.0) devices.

This makes it easier for products with and without the 4.0 firmware to co-exist in Dante Domain Manager.

The Network Diagnostics Report “provides instant visibility of basic network configuration via connectivity, DHCP, DNS and Internet reachability tests,” according to the Audinate press release.

Available in the Network & Security settings, it is now a single click to establish if there are any fundamental configuration errors on the network.

With the latest Dante Domain Manager update, customers can now rename Dante domains without having to delete and recreate them.
