Audinate Joins the Professional Audio Manufacturers Alliance (PAMA)

The Professional Audio Manufacturers Alliance (PAMA) announced that Australian-based Audinate Group Limited has joined the PAMA organization. The announcement was made by Chris Regan, chair of PAMA’s board of directors. It underscores PAMA’s ongoing expansion and mission to promote awareness and appreciation of high-quality professional audio through market leadership, communication and education.

According to a statement, more than 3,000 different products from more than 350 different manufacturers use Audinate’s solutions. Additionally, the Dante AV-over-IP networking solution established itself as a de-facto standard for digital audio networking.

With near-zero latency and perfect synchronization, Dante offers uncompressed, multi-channel digital audio channels. These channels can be routed over standard Ethernet networks. Audinate claims deployment of its interoperable, flexible and creativity-enabling network technology in more than 90% of all AV-over-IP products.

Shared Mission

Joshua Rush, Audinate’s chief marketing officer, comments on the announcement. He says, “Audinate and PAMA are on a shared mission to advance best practices and interoperability across the audio industry.”

He adds that vast majority of the industry has adopted Dante for audio networking. Thus, the company felt it was important to join PAMA to stay abreast on important topics that may affect the company as well as the customer base of manufacturers at large. Rush continues, “…I am confident that membership in PAMA will be a valuable endeavor. [We] look forward to having a seat at the table to help shape the initiatives that will influence our whole industry.”

Regan also expresses his pleasure on the recent development. He notes, “…Audinate is an important addition to PAMA, as so many of our member companies now employ Dante in their product offerings. [Also,] Audinate shares our vision to support high-quality audio.”

Regan further expands on the benefits of more companies joining PAMA. He says “it furthers our ability to tackle and address industry issues while providing a unified voice to the various market sectors PAMA serves.”
