PORTLAND, OR. March 10, 2009 – Audinate is pleased to announce that Whirlwind has added Audinate’s Dante™ networking technology to it’s PXP (Protocol eXchange Platform) line of products. The PXP, Whirlwind’s first Dante-enabled product, allows users to seamlessly convert digital audio signals on Dante networks to and from other networking formats.
