A New Dante Networking Chip Arrives


A Dante networking chip designed for mid-channel count audio products has hit the streets.

Audinate, the developer of the highly popular Dante media networking technology, is now shipping the Dante Broadway.

Available in 8×8 and 16×16 channel options, Dante Broadway is designed for the addition of Dante audio networking to products such as small mixers, power amplifiers, DSPs, hardware interfaces and conferencing solutions.

Specifically, Dante Broadway integrates Audinate’s Ultimo products with the top features of the Brooklyn II module, including latency as low as 0.25ms and support for Gigabit Ethernet.

Redundancy is also supported in specific configurations for high-availability applications. With a set of control interfaces (including SPI, UART and GPIO), plus support for Dante Device Protocol, packet bridging and AES67, Dante Broadway is capable of connecting an audio product into the ecosystem of Dante-enabled products.

“As Dante adoption has continued to accelerate, our manufacturer customers are looking to integrate Dante networking more broadly across their product line,” said Audinate COO David Myers.

The Dante Broadway was offered for demonstration at Audinate’s booth at the recently held 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas.
