Dante Embedded Platform | Audinate | AV's Leading Networking Technology

Bringing AV-as-software to life

The future of AV is software. Dante Embedded Platform delivers the real-time media connectivity that the future demands of your products.

Dante Embedded Platform lets you incorporate the world’s most widely used audio networking solution directly into your Linux-based AV products, allowing you to leverage your UX paradigm for seamlessly integrated workflows. With minimal additional hardware and low marginal costs, Dante Embedded Platform preserves the smallest product footprint while enabling OEMs to deliver in-field software upgrades and more, so your products and your customers stay up-to-date.

And now with Dante Ready, manufacturers can let customers upgrade to the number of channels they need, when they need them, lowering your costs to implement.

  • Support for PTP-based precision clocking
  • Redundant network capable
  • Supports private encoding
  • Field software updates when available
  • Control interfaces: Dante API
  • Works with all Dante-enabled devices and software implementations
  • Compatible with Dante Controller
  • Compatible with Dante Domain Manager

* Maximum channel count and achievable latency will depend on processor type (x86 or Arm), speed, other processing loads, operating system configuration and tuning.


How to Implement

Validate designs with product design kits (PDK) and software development kits (SDK) for popular Arm CPUs:

i.MX 8M MINI QUADLITE PDK

Dante Embedded Platform Reference Design Kit for NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite processor is validated by Audinate for Dante performance and lets OEMs design with confidence. Tested and qualified design for Arm-based Dante-enabled products

  • Up to 64x64 channels
  • Low 2 to 4 ms latency
  • Redundancy support
  • Works with single and multi-core CPUs
  • Fully compatible with all other Dante-enabled devices and tools
  • Support for Dante Domain Manager

SDK for Arm Cortex-A processors

Dante Embedded Platform Software Development Kit for Arm Cortex-A processors provides the tools needed to develop Dante-enabled products built upon 32- and 64-bit Arm Cortex-A processors using a Linux operating system, and supports online license activation for OEMs. Provides the tools needed to develop Dante-enabled products

  • For 32- and 64-bit Arm Cortex-A processors using a Linux operating system
  • Supports online license activation for OEMs
