Advantages of Dante Audio™
Considering the use of a music engine with integrated Dante software, the customer is not confronted with the usual chaos which is related to the handling of different cables. The implementation of this technology enables the user an efficient substitute for heavy copper cables which saves a lot of time, money and nerves not to mention. But that’s not all: An additional advantage is the easy and straightforward handling of the system. Due to a function called “Auto-Discovery” all relevant devices can be automatically tracked within the respective network. Consequently the installation and configuration can be performed in an easier and more efficient way. Furthermore Dante technology is compatible with all available POE switches meaning that there is no need for additional software. In other words that there is no more confusion linked to the handling of multiple network protocols.
Considering the sound quality there is a clear reduction in problem causing factors just as background noises or extended waiting times.
The definition of the term “Dante” is equal to the description on the website Wikipedia: “Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) is a combination of software, hardware, and network protocols that deliver uncompressed, multi-channel, low-latency digital audio over a standard Ethernet network using Layer 3 IP packets. Developed in 2006 by a Sydney-based company named Audinate, Dante builds and improves on previous audio over Ethernet technologies, such as CobraNet and EtherSound.”
Considering the origin of Dante an Australian company developed the software several years ago. As already mentioned Dante is based on well-known Audio-over Ethernet technologies and is implemented in a various number of practical applications. A notable example for the implementation of this software would be the combined use of the Audio Installation service and the classical Music Engine program.
