Dante Via: What is latency?

Latency is a tiny time delay (10 milliseconds, in the case of Dante Via) that is added by Dante Via to each audio stream. The slight delay gives Via the time it needs to ‘packetize’ the audio from the source and transmit it across the network to the destination before it is due to be played out.

Typically, the 10ms latency should not impact any audio networks you might set up using Dante Via. However, if low latency is your thing, Dante PCIe cards are available, which can deliver extremely low latency (0.15ms).
