New Controller software supports Yamaha HA Remote and Mac OS 10.8

Portland, OR October 22, 2012- Audinate, the inventors of the award winning, patented, digital media networking solution Dante, are pleased to announce that Dante Controller v3.2.9.2 has been released for both Windows and Mac. This update now supports Yamaha HA Remote mode toggling for supported devices and also supports Mac OS X 10.8 for Mac.

Audinate's patented Dante solution is media networking perfected. Dante provides high performance digital media networking over both 100Mbps and 1Gigbit Ethernet. Dante provides low latency, sample-accurate playback synchronization, high channel counts and is plug and play.  Based on IP standards, Dante meets the quality and performance requirements of professional live sound, AV installations and broadcast plus recording systems. Dante has been licensed by over 60 OEMs customers across the AV industry

Mary Cudmore, Director of Product Delivery, said “Support for HA Remote in the latest version of Dante Controller, together with the latest release of Dante-MY16-AUD firmware,  means that the head amps in Yamaha Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D I/O rack units can be remotely controlled from such equipment as M7CL or LS9 digital mixing consoles”.

Rio3224-D/Rio1608-D Head Amp Control from the M7CL and LS9

October 2, 2012. Shizuoka, Japan – The Audinate Dante-MY16-AUD Mini-YGDAI interface card marketed by Yamaha Corporation has been updated to allow remote head amp control. The updated version allows the head amps in the Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D I/O rack units to be remotely controlled from an M7CL or LS9 digital mixing console.

The Dante network audio protocol developed by the Australia based Audinate company offers outstanding basic performance with low jitter and latency, while also allowing flexible system scaling to accommodate a wide range of applications and capacities. Those capabilities have made Dante a mainstream choice for installations and live sound applications. Yamaha’s collaboration with Audinate began in 2009 with the development of the Dante-MY16-AUD interface card, and this year’s release of the Yamaha CL series digital mixing consoles saw the world’s first implementation of Dante as the standard built-in protocol. With this update the Rio3224-D and Rio1608-D I/O rack units that could previously only be used with the CL series can now be used with digital mixing consoles such as the M7CL and LS9 that do not feature built-in Dante communication capability.

"Now Yamaha digital consoles equipped with Audinate's Dante-MY16-AUD will gain the ability use the head amp control feature and integrate with the new the Rio I/O racks" says Lee Ellison, Audinate's CEO. "This enhancement further extends the complete Dante network ecosystem for Yamaha products."

Portland, OR-July 30, 2012- Last month millions turned out in London, England, to mark Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne. Not since Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee 1897, has Great Britain celebrated a monarch's 60th anniversary. Needless to say an event of this magnitude required a reliable and flexible networking transport, and Audinate's award winning technology Dante™ was chosen as the digital media network backbone for all the live sound events and festivities.  

Audio production house Britannia Row Productions was responsible for all the live sound. Joshua Lloyd was the system designer who designed the sound system (that needed to be invisible) for the seated invited audience around the temporary stage constructed on the Queen Victoria Monument.  “It was necessary to create a large distributed system to achieve this goal” comments Lloyd. “We used 24 stacks of Outline Butterfly loudspeakers, for a total of 96 boxes, to create this complex system. Each stack of Butterfly’s was driven by a Lake LM series processor, and all were networked together using off-the-shelf Cisco switches over a standard IP network.”

32x32 channel Plug 'N Play Network Audio Transport

Portland, OR-Rio Rancho, New Mexico –May 3, 2012- Meeting the demand for reliable network audio transport, Lectrosonics has developed the SPNDNT network processor to expand the ASPEN digital matrix processor family. The new network processor is much more than a simple network interface. Instead, it is a full featured DSP processor that can address both the ASPEN and Dante™ matrices and add mixing, gain and delay functions to the digital audio signals. Any of the 48 final mixes in the ASPEN matrix can be assigned to any one or more of the Dante channels for transport to other endpoints in the network. Dante signals can also be imported into the ASPEN matrix in a local processor sub-system for mixing with other local and network signals, and then routed onward to other local or network devices.
