Jun 2010

Las Vegas, NV June 10, 2010 --At infoComm 2010 today, Audinate launched its new IP based Dante audio networking PCI Express sound card.  The Dante PCIe Soundcard unlocks your recording and production potential by providing 256 channels of uncompressed, digital audio with astoundingly low latency. 

The high capacity Dante PCI Express Soundcard for PC or Mac provides a cost effective solution for OEMs seeking to create high performance recording and audio processing products. The Dante PCIe Soundcard provides an unprecedented number of super low-latency Dante audio channels with support for all popular sample rates. Onboard processing frees your computer's resources for native DSP and plug-ins. The Dante PCIe Soundcard can support configurations for 128x128 bi-directional channels at either 48 kHz or 96kHz sample rates, or 64x64 bi-directional channels at 192kHz sampling.

“Following the success of the Dante Virtual Soundcard™ (DVS) introduced last year, The Dante PCIe Soundcard provides a premium Dante solution for customers requiring ultra low latency and high channel count applications” stated Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “The Dante PCIe Soundcard gives an attractive IP based alternative to MADI.” 

The new soundcard can be installed on both Mac and Windows, presenting a standard Core Audio or ASIO interface for immediate use with hundreds of professional and consumer audio applications. Astoria works over standard Gigabit network and is AVB-ready. Audinate’s patented Dante solution provides a no-hassle, self-configuring, plug-and-play digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols. The Dante PCIe Soundcard will be sold to OEMs as part of their overall Dante networked solution.
