Audinate Adds AES67 Support For Dante Ultimo Chipsets

Audinate, developer of the Dante audio over IP media networking technology, is now shipping new firmware for its Ultimo UXT family of audio networking chipsets that support products with increased output capacity of two and four channels.

This latest Dante Ultimo firmware update also adds the ability for these products to send audio streams to other non-Dante products that use the AES67 standard.

The new Audinate Dante firmware 4.1 for The Ultimo UXT chipsets is currently implemented in hundreds of AV products, including powered speakers, microphones, AV wall plates, amplifiers, paging stations, personal monitoring systems, recording interfaces, intercoms, and analog/digital break-in/break out interfaces. Audinate released AES67 support last year in its Dante Brooklyn II, Dante Broadway, Dante PCIe, Dante MY-16, Dante HC, and Dante IP Core products.

Joshua Rush, senior vice president of Marketing and Product at Audinate, said the addition of AES67 to Ultimo UXT reflects the company’s commitment to continue to add support for new standards to the Dante platform.

“In the broadcast industry we want to make sure that our OEM partners and their customers are able to enjoy the benefits of the complete Dante solution while also maintaining compliance with industry standards for interoperability,” he said.

Underscoring Audinate’s support of new standards within the Dante platform, the company is also announcing support for SMPTE 2110 across the entire Dante platform.

The Dante platform has been adopted by over 400 AV manufacturers, and implemented in over 1400 commercially available products.
