Yamaha Dante Products to Support AES67 Interoperability Standard

Published: September 21, 2016

Yamaha Corporation Japan recently announced it will update Dante products to support the AES audio-over-IP interoperability standard, a move that will allow Yamaha products equipped with Dante networking capability to communicate with Ravenna and other audio networks via AES67.

Beginning with the CL Series digital mixing consoles introduced in 2012, Yamaha has included Audinate‘s Dante audio networking solution in digital mixers, signal processors, power amplifiers and other pro audio devices.

As of this month, 24 Yamaha products offer Dante networking capability. In February 2014, Audinate announced Dante would be updated to support AES67. AES67 is an audio-over-IP interoperability standard established by the Audio Engineering Society in September 2013.

Here’s more information about Yamaha updating its Dante products to support the AES67 interoperability standard:

Yamaha plans to successively update Dante-equipped products with device and Dante firmware updates that will add AES67 support, beginning with the CL/QL Series Digital Mixing Consoles and R Series I/O racks later this year.

Broadcast oriented features introduced in CL/QL firmware V3 has made it possible for these consoles to be increasingly accepted by broadcast engineers, leading to numerous requests for Ravenna network compatibility. AES67 support will allow Dante and Ravenna devices to work together in broadcast systems that offer unprecedented flexibility and efficiency.

“Diverse connectivity has always been a priority for our products, states Marc Lopez, director of marketing, Yamaha Professional Audio Division. “As digital audio networking is becoming mainstream in the pro audio industry, Yamaha will continue to strongly support standards that allow connectivity for a wide variety of applications.”
