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 Soundweb London BLU-DAN offers Dante audio and BLU link. This means that the BLU-DAN can be used to ‘add’ Dante to one or more BLU link devices. The BLU-DAN is configurable through HiQnet™ Audio Architect. A rich palette of logic objects and a “drag and drop” method of configuration provide a simple and familiar design environment.
The BLU-DAN features Dante audio. The BLU-DAN is capable of simultaneously transmitting and receiving up to 64 channels of Dante audio (64 x 64). Primary and Secondary ports are provided for fault tolerance. Control is through a separate Ethernet port.
