Frankfurt, Germany-March 25, 2010- Link announced during today’s exhibition at prolight+sound in Frankfurt that it has executed a licence agreement with Audinate to implement Dante™ in Link’s DGlinkTM Stage Box system. Audinate’s Dante™ solution provides a no-hassle, self-configuring, plug-and-play digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols. Dante™ is a scalable solution that works on both 100Mbits and 1Gigabit Ethernet. Additionally, Audinate offers a Dante Virtual Soundcard - a software solution that turns a PC or Mac into a Dante-enabled device.
“The addition of DanteTM significantly enhances the audio transport capabilities of our system while making it more flexible,” stated Marco Piromalli, President of Link. “We look forward to debuting a system at InfoComm10 in Las Vegas this June.”
DGlinkTM; is the first multi-protocol enabled modular digital snake system. The DGlinkTM digital audio distribution system leverages a long lineage of eurocableTM analogue/digital cables, LK connectorsTM, and digital circuitry (all manufactured by Link) which provides a modular, touring grade, digital distribution system that is compatible with the architecture of traditional stage boxes. DGlinkTM is specifically designed for live applications that require the integration and distribution of Analogue, AES-EBU, and Ethernet based protocols.
“Partnering with Link offers a Stage Box solution that will take advantage of the many benefits Dante™ has to offer,” said Lee Ellison, Audinate’s Chief Executive Officer. “Link’s unique hybrid approach, coupled with Dante’s advanced technology, offers the end user a distribution system that will improve audio quality and simplify setup.”
Audinate revolutionizes the way that AV systems are connected by transporting high quality media over standard IT networks. Using Audinate's patent pending networking solution, digital media networking just got easy. Audinate’s solution has been licensed by customers across the AV industry and can be found in installations and live sound applications globally. Audinate offices are located in US and Australia.
