Dante Embedded Platform

Dante Embedded Platform is a software implementation of the world's most widely-used AV-over-IP solution, targeting AV products implemented on Linux running on commodity x86 and ARM processors.

Dante for a world of software-driven AV

It addresses emerging needs for an industry transitioning to a more software-focused model of system and product design, providing the tools manufacturers need to make AV as software a reality.

Deliver powerful, flexible and cost-effective software-based products that come with Dante audio networking already on board.

Dante Embedded Platform lets you build the world’s leading audio networking solution directly into your Linux-based products using 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, so your products and your customers stay up-to-date.

Develop with confidence

Dante Embedded Platform is designed to work in products that run Linux on compact ARM processors as well as large, powerful x86 CPUs, and includes tools that eliminate costly guesswork. An SDK with validation software allows you to test existing or pre-planned products for Dante performance capabilities in order to identify the best candidates for Dante Embedded Platform. A set of ARM Reference Design Kits will deliver robust, pre-validated designs using popular chipsets such as NXP i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite, and the Analog Devices ADSP-SC589. Dante Embedded Platform is ideal for developing families of interoperable products that range from petite ARM-based products up to large, x86-based designs that deliver high channel counts with low, deterministic latency.

Plug into the Dante ecosystem

Dante is the leading AV-over-IP solution in the world, with over 2000 interoperable products available from more than 430 manufacturers of AV gear. With Dante in your applications, users get immediate access to any and all of these devices, making it easy to select equipment that suits every need.
