Yamaha Adopts Audinate’s Dante AV Technology for IP Applications

BUENA PARK, Calif. (June 11, 2019) — Yamaha Corporation is adopting Audinate’s Dante AV Product Design suite for its upcoming series of new products targeted for audio/video (AV) over IP applications that require the need to breakout and distribute audio and video signals while maintaining tight synchronization throughout a facility or venue.

Dante AV is an easy-to-use integrated audio and video networking control solution enabling complete interoperability with the nearly 2,000 Dante-enabled audio products, including many from Yamaha, currently available. With Dante AV, audio and video signals are now independently routable in a single interface using the Dante Controller software.

Dante AV solves the problem of maintaining networked video and audio synchronization by using a single network clock for sub-microsecond accuracy. Dante is an IP-routable Layer 3 technology that allows the use of widely available standard IT network switches and cabling, making it possible to build highly reliable networks while minimizing equipment costs. The Dante AV Product Design Suite incorporates the intoPix JPEG2000 codec supporting 4K/60 4:4:4 video for visually lossless results with low latency.

As more pro A/V system projects move to an IT infrastructure, distributing audio and video over an IP network presents a more flexible and cost-effective solution. Dante AV technology seamlessly integrates video transmission and routing over existing 1 Gbps Dante networks.

Yamaha and Audinate began their technology collaboration nearly 10 years ago. The first Yamaha product to support Dante audio network technology was the Mini-YGDAI card “DANTE-MY16-AUD,” released in 2010. In 2012, Dante interfaces became a standard installed feature on Yamaha CL Series digital mixing consoles, revolutionizing the digital audio transmission of I/O units with Layer 3 Audio over IP technology and creating fundamental change in the commercial A/V industry.

Yamaha has since introduced a number of Dante-compatible products such as the RIVAGE PM flagship series of digital mixing systems, the MTX/MRX series of matrix processors and the VXL series of PoE line array speakers.

“The collaboration with Audinate over the past 10 years has been extremely beneficial to Yamaha,” said Yoshi Tsugawa, senior general manager, Yamaha Audio Business division. “Having a commercially supported, complete networking technology provides customers with a trusted solution. Taking advantage of Audinate’s expertise in digital networking has transformed networked audio and we anticipate Dante AV will deliver the same benefits for networked video in the Pro AV industry.”“We are honored that Yamaha has selected Dante AV for their new product line,” said Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Yamaha has an amazing history of developing innovative high-quality digital products. By adding Dante AV into Yamaha products, the distribution of audio and video becomes easier for customers deploying integrated audio and video systems.” For more information on Yamaha commercial audio products, please visit
