Audinate, developer of Dante media networking technology, isn’t sitting back just because it’s riding momentum from Integrated Systems Europe 2017 where is announced that it has over 350 manufacturer licensees and over 1,000 commercially are available products with Dante . Just a couple of months later it’s announcing its new Dante Broadway, a networking chip designed for mid-channel count audio products.

Dante Broadway is available in 8×8 and 16×16 channel options, and Dante says it’s  ideal for adding Dante audio networking to products such as small mixers, power amplifiers, DSPs, hardware interfaces and conferencing solutions.

Dante Broadway blends the small form factor of Audinate’s renowned Ultimo products with the most popular features of the powerful Brooklyn II module, including latency as low as 0.25ms and support for Gigabit Ethernet.  Redundancy is also supported in specific configurations for high-availability applications.  With a rich set of control interfaces (including SPI, UART and GPIO), plus support for Dante Device Protocol, packet bridging and AES67, Dante Broadway can seamlessly connect an audio product into the growing ecosystem of Dante-enabled products.

“As Dante adoption has continued to accelerate, our manufacturer customers are looking to integrate Dante networking more broadly across their product line,” states David Myers, COO of Audinate. “We are pleased to add Dante Broadway to the range of solutions we offer, giving OEMs a cost-effective way to add Dante to mid-tier channel count products.”

Dante Broadway will be on display at NAB in booth C5409 [more information].
