VIENNA, Aug. 30, 2021 — StreamUnlimited are excited to bring Dante Embedded Platform (DEP) into the StreamSDK feature portfolio. With this new software solution, StreamUnlimited customers are able to build Dante enabled products without the need for any additional hardware for compatibility with thousands of existing Dante-enabled products, and provide integrators with the most flexible, extensible, cost-effective audio system possible today.
Dante is the most widely used, 100% interoperable audio-over-IP solution in the world and is currently adopted by over 500 manufacturers in over 3000 products that all connect seamlessly. Dante Embedded Platform provides Dante as software for use in Linux-powered audio products, delivering lossless, bit-perfect audio over standard IP networks with low, deterministic latency and sub-microsecond synch between all devices without requiring additional hardware. Dante reduces installation and upgrade costs by replacing bespoke cabling with ubiquitous, lightweight Ethernet. All signal routing is accomplished via software, freeing designers, integrators, and end-users from the rigidity of point-to-point connections while reducing the cost of changes.
“Advancement in whole home audio systems consistently drives our customers to embrace new technology, from immersive sound to smart speaker and high-end applications,” said Markus Rutz, CTO at StreamUnlimited. “With Dante Embedded Platform, Audinate have removed additional complexity associated with adding extra Hardware in product design, and we look forward to enabling customers across a number of segments to take advantage of this.”
“We’re excited to see StreamUnlimited embrace Dante Embedded Platform, pioneering a software-driven vision for the future of AV,” says Josh Rush, Chief Marketing Officer for Audinate. “It’s a vision that Audinate shares, delivering lower costs while expanding customer choices and flexibility over the long run.”
Dante Embedded Platform is now available for demonstration and development on the NXP iMX8 based Stream1955 module, with preparation underway to make it available on other platforms, dependent on customer demand. StreamUnlimited will also be available at CEDIA, Indianapolis from 1st -3rd September 2021, booth 4153.
