Aviom, manufacturer of the iconic A-16II Personal Mixer and industry leader in personal mixing, is pleased to announce it has licensed Audinate’s Dante digital audio networking technology. Integrating the Dante networking solution into its line of personal mixing products allows Aviom to simplify the connection of its personal mixers to those digital consoles that offer Dante connectivity.
The Dante networking solution is widely accepted among many pro audio manufacturers because it is a self-configuring network that uses standard Internet Protocols over both 100Mbps and 1 Gigabit Ethernet. Set-up is easy, with devices that automatically discover one another and one-click signal routing with user-editable names. Dante has now been adopted by more than 95 OEMs, and is recognized as the most interoperable media networking solution in the market today.
“Audinate’s Dante has become a standard in digital audio networking for the pro audio industry, and incorporating Dante connectivity into our personal mixing system makes it possible for our personal mixers to be connected directly to many of the best digital consoles on the market,” explains Aviom president and CEO, Carl Bader. “By incorporating Dante, we have both simplified the setup of systems with the new A360 Personal Mixer and added versatility for the user.”
Aviom’s new D800-Dante A-Net Distributor, which will start shipping later this year, connects Aviom Personal Mixers directly to an existing Dante audio network, making up to 64 channels available from a console so that each performer with an A360 can select a unique combination of mix channels from the network. Using Network Mix Back, the stereo mix from each A360 can also be routed back into the Dante network for distribution to wireless in-ear systems or monitoring by an engineer.
“Aviom is known as one of the leaders in personal monitor mixing systems worldwide,” remarks Lee Ellison, Audinate’s CEO. “We are very happy that Aviom has added Dante connectivity to their product line. Aviom’s personal mixing systems can now be directly networked with Dante to hundreds of products by a wide variety of manufacturers.”
