Audinate, developer of the professional Dante AV-over-IP solution, announced the Dante Studio 2.0 software update and new subscription pricing. Dante Studio is a suite of software tools comprising Dante RX, Dante TX, and Dante Video Viewer. The suite brings Dante AV video directly into a PC from Dante AV Ultra or Dante AV-H cameras, encoders or other computers running Dante Studio on the network. Moreover, it does not require any additional hardware.
Dante Studio also shares the well-known Dante control and management platform. Dante Controller handles all device routing, naming and configuration for audio and video devices. Thus, it allows operators to control the entire AV network via a single interface. With Dante Domain Manager, users can secure all audio and video endpoints with user access control, actively monitored and remotely accessed to simplify system maintenance and support.
New features in Dante Studio 2.0 include:
- Added Dante AV-H (H.264/AVC codec) support in Dante Video RX and Dante Video Viewer
- Dante Video TX now supports sending video flows to Dante AV Ultra devices
- Dante Domain Manager support
- Ability to purchase Dante Studio with monthly subscription
With Dante Video RX, computers can receive a video signal directly from Dante AV Ultra or Dante AV-H transmitters, cameras or other computers running Dante Studio on their network. It also presents video streams as a webcam or video source to applications that support the DirectShow interface. Dante Video RX facilitates a wide variety of networked video use cases. These range from the video production and broadcast markets to corporate and higher education.
Meanwhile, Dante Video Viewer is a standalone application that allows users to see and monitor a Dante video stream from any Dante AV Ultra or Dante AV-H-enabled device or computer sharing its screen with Dante Video TX on the Dante network in real time.
Dante Video TX and Dante Domain Manager Support
Dante Video TX allows users to capture a display connected to the PC. Users can then transmit the captured video over the Dante Network. They can also send this video stream to Dante AV Ultra receivers or another instance of Dante Studio. To do so, users can use either Dante Video RX to bring the video into applications or Video Viewer to view the video in a standalone app.
Dante Domain Manager lets users know exactly what the Dante system is doing at all times. User authentication and role definitions for Dante Controller also ensure that no unauthorized changes are made to the system. Users can also see alerts and notifications that keep them updated on changes instantly, anywhere. Moreover, they can organize the system into controlled groups that are easy to understand.
Dante Studio is available as a 7-day free trial or subscription for $9.95 a month, ensuring the software is always up-to-date with the latest improvements from Audinate.
