Built on IP networking standards, Dante is designed to easily adopt latest networking technology as it becomes available. Dante uses global networking standards such as IEEE 802.3 and UDP/IP, and can adapt to new standards via software and firmware field upgrades. Configuration and operation made easy. Dante-enabled products use automatic network configuration and discovery techniques that turn complicated audio setup procedures into plug and play. Connect your PC or Mac direct to the network and use Dante’s control software to easily configure or route your audio, and Dante’s friendly labels to rename your equipment and audio channels with names that make sense to you. Use the Dante API development tools to integrate Dante control into your own control software for a seamless user experience.

Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) enables your Mac or PC to join in and behave like any other Dante-enabled hardware equipment. Just plug in to the standard Ethernet port on your computer to use digital audio processing, recording or playback applications direct to the network. Make IT networks work for you. Dante runs on standard Ethernet/IP networks and inexpensive off-the-shelf computer networking hardware, and doesn’t require dedicated or specialized network infrastructure. Design your network the way you need to, mixing 100Mbps, 1Gbps, Cat5 and fiber to suit your requirements. What’s more, using standard VoIP-style QoS, Dante can be run alongside ordinary data traffic, so you even have the option of integrating your professional media operations into larger managed networks.
