Dante Domain Manager Now Compatible With Over 400 Products

More than 400 audio and AV products are now offering support for the Audinate Dante Domain Manager platform. Manufacturers from AEQ to Yamaha have introduced new firmware that is compatible with the network control and management system for the Dante Ethernet-based audio over IP (AoIP) protocol.

Audinate announced Dante Domain Manager during the early part of 2017 and is now selling it commercially through resellers internationally. After extensive beta testing over the past year, Audinate has started to build up a roster of Dante Domain Manger Ready products. This includes amplifiers, commentary units, conference equipment, digital recording and playback devices, signal processors, encoders/decoders, I/O interfaces, intercom systems, matrix switchers, mic pre-amps, microphones, mixing desks, soundcards and stage boxes.

Companies that are now providing interoperability with the Domain Manager include: AEQ on its ranges of ARENA, FORUM and CAPITOL consoles, routers, interface cards and boxes, KROMA intercom and Olympia commentary systems; beyerdynamic with its TG1000 digital wireless mic package; Calrec Audio for the Apollo, Artemis Beam, Artemis Light, Artemis Shine, Brio and Summa mixing desks, plus the Hydra2 network router and its BI6192 interface card; Clear-Com, with the Eclipse range of digital intercom matrices; CTP intercoms and rack mixers; Digigram's Audioway Bridge gateways and LX-Dante soundcard; DirectOut's EXBOX.MD Dante-MADI converter; Glensound Beatrice intercom, Express and Paradiso commentary and DARK interface units; Sennheiser's Digital 6000 series digital radio mic range; Studio Technologies' range of announcer's consoles; and Yamaha's CL1, CL5, QL1 and QL5 digital desks.

Audinate's vice president of marketing, Joshua Rush, commented on the growth in support for the product: "The number of Dante licensees that have upgraded their products to support Dante Domain Manager is exciting, and speaks to the value they see in it for their customers. We expect to see another large wave of products announcing support for Dante Domain Manager at InfoComm in June."

Among the system integration companies seeing the benefit of greater integration of the Domain Manager into products is US-based Diversified Systems. "We are glad to see so many manufacturers upgrading their products to support Dante Domain Manager and plan to recommend those products whenever possible so that our customers can get the advanced management and security features they are demanding," said vice president of engineering Mark DiQuinzio.
