Industry events showcasing Dante audio networking <see all>
Audinate has announced that 275 manufacturers have now adopted Dante, the industry-leading audio over IP networking solution, and that more than 675 Dante-enabled products are now available worldwide. This represents a dramatic 145% increase in the number of commercially available products since ISE last year.
Due to limited space, multi-functionality for areas within cruise liners has become a must. As the ships grow in size and required bandwidth, the implementation of fibre-based technologies is also becoming increasingly important. Now that newer protocols have been developed for faster networks, such as Audinate’s Dante, bidirectional audio distribution to and from and between venues is becoming more viable. For TUI Cruises Entertainment Berlin, Dante has been a worthy investment that has allowed for the kind of networking flexibility that is required.
The DMS800, reference digital wireless microphone system is designed to provide accurate signal transmission and reliability in theaters, conferences, live productions and tour sound applications. It is the direct successor of DMS700 V2 and offers everything that made its predecessor an outstanding performer while adding features to deliver more versatility than ever before.
The DMS800 provides two digital audio outputs – for DANTE and AES EBU. The design and mechanics of the DHT800 handheld transmitter have been improved and microphone heads are now exchangeable, so the customer is more flexible. It can be chosen between the AKG D5 WL1, D7 WL1 and C5 WL1. Additionally the mute switch of the transmitters can be set to work as power switch.
An optional network remote control allows frequency coordination and monitoring of multichannel systems by PC software Audio Architect, Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod® or Soundcraft Vi consoles.
