What is Dante?

One Connection. Endless Possibilities.

Dante is a network platform focusing on AV connectivity that’s easy to use. We enable communication, experiences, inspiration and collaboration to be shared between people and spaces using one connection.

How does Dante work?

AV systems have traditionally required point-to-point physical connections between devices, resulting in cumbersome amounts of specialized, single-purpose cables that define where audio and video signals can go.

Changes are labor-intensive and expensive, and noise and signal degradation are constant companions as distances grow. The result is systems that are difficult to deploy and even more difficult to adapt as demands shift.

Dante replaces all connections with a computer network, effortlessly sending video or hundreds of channels of audio over slender Ethernet cables with perfect digital fidelity. All connections are now managed with software, making routes fast, readable and reliable.

Because all devices share the same network, signals can be sent between any devices no matter where they are located on a site, with no change to the wiring at all. Dante systems are easily expanded, exactly as one might add a printer to a network. Just connect additional devices to any available network jack and start using it.

Dante is the evolution of AV systems, converging all previous connection types into one. Dante delivers vastly superior performance while making these systems easier to use, easier to expand, and less expensive to deploy.

How do manufacturers get Dante for their products?

Dante is developed by Audinate and is available to manufacturers of audio and video products in several formats that suit different product types. Manufacturers may purchase Dante audio in the form of hardware modules, chips, reference designs and software that may be incorporated into products ranging from single channel microphones to massive 500+ channel broadcast consoles, while Dante AV brings this same functionality to video signals.

No matter how Dante is implemented, interoperability between devices is guaranteed for easy, dependable deployment in the real world.
