Audio console manufacturer DiGiCo announced the adoption of Audinate's Dante digital networking solution and the launch of two new Dante-based products.

"The first, an eight-channel I/O module for the SD-Rack, is something we believe the industry would expect from DiGiCo," said managing director James Gordon, in a statement. "The module allows our users to drop audio on and off a Dante network for connection to system control, amplifiers and general audio networks.

"The second is a little more unexpected and comes from our Solutions Division in the shape of Dante DMI (DiGiCo Multichannel Interface) card," Gordon said. The Dante DMI card can be added to either a D-Rack or SD-Rack and allows the user to connect the I/O rack, via Cat-5, to a standard PC or MAC.

Audinate develops technology for transporting high-quality media over standard IT networks. Its Dante products create self-configuring, plug-and-play digital audio networks that use standard Internet Protocols and provide a migration path to upgrade to new standards such as IEEE Audio Video Bridging (AVB).

Using the newly released DiGiCo-Control software, a user can control all the functions of the rack via a standard network connection. Applications that can take advantage of the functionality and straight-forward recording include broadcast, live touring, studio recording, rehearsal rooms, and multiple fixed installation environments, company officials said.

"DiGiCo has been at the forefront of many innovations and we are proud they have chosen Dante as their digital networking solution," said John McMahon, Audinate's vice president of sales and support, in a statement.
