Audinate, inventor of Dante™, the industry leading digital media networking solution, announced new releases to its popular Dante Virtual Soundcard (Release 3.7) as well as Dante Controller. Both releases support the latest Apple Mac OS X10.10 Yosemite and Microsoft Windows 8.1 operating systems.
Dante Virtual Soundcard is a simple, easy-to-use software application that turns your Windows PC, Windows Server, or Mac OS X computer into a Dante-enabled device, allowing you to instantly connect to any Dante network. No special hardware is required — Dante Virtual Soundcard uses your computer's Ethernet port to send or receive audio from Dante-enabled devices on the network.
Dante Controller is a free software application for PC and Mac that enables you to route audio and configure devices on a Dante network. In addition, Dante Controller provides essential device status information and powerful real-time network monitoring, including device-level latency and clock stability stats, multicast bandwidth usage, and customized event logging.
The Dante Virtual Soundcard Release 3.7 features include:
In addition, Dante Virtual Soundcard will report latency stats, late packet stats and signal presence indicators via the latest release of Dante Controller, Release 3.5.6. This provides end-users with useful health and monitoring information of the network status. A further benefit is that Dante Virtual Soundcard will now run on Microsoft Windows Server™ versions 2012 and 2008, allowing for wider use in traditional IT environments. Upgrade to Release 3.7 is free of charge to current license holders.
