InfoComm 2016: EvertzAV Adopts Dante Audio over IP Networking
EvertzAV has added support for Dante audio networking as an option for the company’s MMA10G-HUB In-Room AV Switch. The MMA10G-HUB is an in-room audio & video switcher that leverages Evertz MMA-10G Network Based AV Distribution capability. The HUB makes connecting a single room to a facility easy and opens up a world of possibilities for collaboration, resource sharing and connectivity.
“We are excited to integrate Audinate’s Dante technology within our MMA-10G products,” says Jamie Horner, Director for EvertzAV. “We believe we are the first to include Dante within an AV switch product, which facilitates audio from various Dante enabled products to be shared seamlessly with our HUB product. The HUB provides the central location to not only switch audio and video within the room but also transport the audio within the facility using Evertz’ unique 10GE network based AV distribution solution. EvertzAV is pushing the envelope in terms of moving audio and video content to a network based model for distribution, and working with Audinate completely makes sense for us as our companies are both leaders in this regard.”
“Evertz is recognized as one of the strongest global company brands for the corporate, education, government, broadcast, and house of worship sectors,” states Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate, the creators of Dante. “With the addition of Dante audio over IP networking, the HUB is the perfect solution for interconnecting classrooms, auditoriums, and boardrooms.”
Dante audio networking uses standard IP networks to transmit high-quality, uncompressed audio with near-zero latency. It’s the most flexible, reliable, and easy-to-manage audio networking solution available, and provides the lowest cost of ownership by dramatically reducing cabling and labor costs. Dante is the audio networking choice of nearly all professional audio manufacturers, making it the industry standard for digital audio networking.
