EV, Audinate Collaborate on Dante Card

Electro-Voice and Audinate announced the availability of the DM-1 Dante audio network card for the NetMax hardware family. The DM-1 may be installed in the N8000 or N8000-1500 chassis to provide high-resolution, low-latency audio transmission over IP networks.

Electro-Voice and Audinate announced the availability of the DM-1 Dante audio network card for the NetMax hardware family. The DM-1 may be installed in the N8000 or N8000-1500 chassis to provide high-resolution, low-latency audio transmission over IP networks.

According to EV, Audinate's scalable Dante solution provides a self-configuring, plug-and-play digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols, and it works on 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps Ethernet connections. By using Dante, many of the bulky cables typically needed to provide point-to-point analog wiring for AV installations are eliminated. Automatic device discovery and system configuration incorporated within Dante ease the setup and management of the media network.

The DM-1 is also compatible with Audinate's Dante Virtual Soundcard, which turns a PC or Mac into a Dante-enabled device. The Dante Virtual Soundcard has some of the same characteristics as a physical sound card or audio interface, including the ability to play and record audio using any Windows audio application with standard ASIO multichannel audio support or any Core Audio Mac application. It uses the Ethernet port on the computer to communicate with a network of other Dante-enabled devices without the need for soundcards. No special hardware is required.

"Audinate's Dante and NetMax are a perfect fit," said Ethan Wetzell, Electro-Voice's global DSP product manager, in a statement. "Whereas NetMax provides highly sophisticated, custom DSP solutions for a variety of applications, we have always strived to provide a higher level of ease of use and quality. Dante has really raised the bar in audio networking with their extensive, truly IP-based technology and fully aligns with what we and our customers are looking for."

"We are excited to have Dante offered with NetMax, as it is recognized for being a powerful and flexible DSP," said Mary Cudmore, director of products for Audinate. "This increases available Dante solutions for digital audio routing and matrixing for applications such as broadcast, stadiums, club sound, houses of worship, and concert systems."
