Audinate to debut Dante Avio adapter family at NAMM 2018
Audinate’s analogue, AES3 and USB audio devices can now be incorporated into Dante networks
Audinate will introduce Dante AVIO at NAMM, a family of endpoint adapters that enable audio professionals to connect legacy analogue and digital audio equipment to Dante networks.
Starting with an MSRP of only $129 USD, the Dante AVIO series features six new adapters including line-in and line-out analog adapters, a bi-directional AES3/EBU adapter and a bi-directional stereo USB adapter.
Each Dante AVIO adapter acts as a completely independent Dante network device, allowing legacy gear to enjoy the benefits of networked audio. These devices can now seamlessly transmit high quality, uncompressed audio streams over long distances without the noise and ground issues common to analog connections.
“Audio networking has been growing rapidly, but we recognize there are still millions of legacy endpoint devices that could benefit from the flexibility and scalability Dante delivers,” said Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Our new line of Dante AVIO adapters enable live sound engineers, systems integrators and even home recording enthusiasts to easily integrate their audio equipment into a Dante network.”
Being part of a Dante system also allows for nearly unlimited scalability while providing incredibly low latency and easy configuration. Dante AVIO adapters enable audio professionals to extend the value of their non-networked equipment, making it interoperable with any of the more than 1250 Dante-enabled products on the market.
The Dante AVIO USB adapter connects any computer to a Dante audio network without additional software, providing class-complaint stereo input and output that can be used by any audio application. Ideal for presentations and conference rooms, the Dante AVIO USB adapter may be passed between computers without altering networked audio connections.
Audinate will showcase its new line of Dante AVIO adapters at the annual NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, January 25-28. Dante AVIO adapters will be available through retailers and system integrators in Q2 2018. NAMM show attendees are encouraged to visit Audinate at booth #18004 in the Pro Audio Hall or visit Audinate.com/avio to learn more.
