With Dante Controller 4.2.3 with Dante Updater, users no longer have to hunt for product-specific installers

Dante Controller 4.2.3 with Dante Updater is described by Audinate as a new feature that makes it easy to update firmware in Dante devices. Users will be able to bring critical updates to customers by making them available directly in Dante Controller with one-click installation. Dante Updater discovers and associates updates with connected devices so that users no longer have to hunt for product-specific installers and can deploy updates to an entire system at once.

Audinate has also collaborated with NXP Semiconductors to introduce a reference design kit for the NXP i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite SoC and provide Dante audio-over-IP to OEMs as on-chip software. The kit will be validated by Audinate for Dante performance, and lets OEMs design for Dante ‘with confidence’. The i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite processor offers four Cortex-A53 cores, one Cortex-M4 core with flexible memory options and a variety of high-speed connectivity interfaces, and is described as ideal for AV-over-IP applications.

Audinate has announced the release of a Dante Virtual Soundcard for installation in virtual Windows environments using Type-1 hypervisors. The American manufacturer explains that this update is especially important for customers such as broadcasters, educators and corporate users that want to deploy Dante networked audio throughout data centres, studios, server clusters and campuses. The Dante Virtual Soundcard turns any computer into a Dante endpoint for networked audio. It provides a standard WDM or ASIO audio interface that allows any installed audio software to send and receive up to 64 channels of lossless audio over a standard 1Gbps network to any Dante-enabled AV endpoints, including other instances of a Dante Virtual Soundcard. It interfaces directly with audio software running on virtual machines, allowing distribution of media playback and centralised recording.

Finally, the manufacturer has announced version 1.1 of Dante Domain Manager to bring new installation options, improved email alerts and notifications, support for SMPTE 2110 devices and secure access to LDAP and SMTP servers. Version 1.1 will be delivered as a complete ISO package to help users install and set up Dante Domain Manager to suit their needs and applications. The ISO package may be used in virtual environments such as VMWare ESXi, Oracle VirtualBox and Microsoft Hyper-V, or it may be installed directly onto a ‘bare metal’ server with no additional software required. New GPS clock synchronisation enables Dante connectivity between facilities over long distances. Improvements to email notifications and alerts mean that integrators and managers can stay on top of changes to their systems from wherever they are. Support for LDAPs and SMTPs reportedly brings greater security and confidence to network managers by encrypting communication to those servers.
