Symetrix Partners with Attero Tech & Stewart Audio to Deliver Dante Ease
In a significant development for users of Audinate’s Dante media networking
technology, Symetrix has announced that the latest version
of its popular SymNet Composer software will enable complete configuration of
select Dante-enabled Symetrix, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio products.
Settings affecting I/O levels, routing and more will be defined with SymNet
Composer 2.0, which gives customers the ability to consolidate operations on a
single platform where three or more were previously required.
“As a result of the release, integrators will no longer need separate software
packages for each manufacturer’s product as well as Dante Controller,” comments
Trent Wagner, Senior Product Manager at Symetrix. “Supported Dante-enabled
products will appear side-by-side with Symetrix SymNet products in the Composer
software and can be managed or configured identically to Symetrix products.
Professionals who have used our Composer before will have no learning curve.”
Stewart Audio has long pursued a focus on making networked AV affordable and
practical, and its current range includes innovative Dante end-points. “Our
customers desire solutions that prove to be both compatible and complete in
addressing their audio challenges. The collaboration between Stewart Audio,
Symetrix and Attero Tech represents a major step in that direction,” says
Stewart Audio’s Chief Marketing Officer, Brian McCormick.
He continues: “By collaborating on solutions we can create the right outcomes
for our customers. With all the difficulties consultants and integrators face
daily, presenting them with a comprehensive answer to an application is what
this partnership is really about.”
Mike Sims, Director of Marketing and Sales at Attero Tech – which produces a
trio of Dante interfaces – welcomes the partnership as “the next logical step”
in the interoperability of Dante networked audio systems. “Our goal has been to
make deployment of these systems as seamless as possible, while allowing
consultants and integrators to choose best-of-class products from a variety of
manufacturers. This is the future of interoperability,” he declares.
The initial response from the integrator community is also encouraging. Chuck
Mitchell is owner of California-based Technology of the Arts and recently
undertook a Dante-centric installation involving Symetrix and Attero Tech
products. “Dante is rapidly becoming a default choice for all manner of
projects in the installed environment,” he says. “The partnership between
Symetrix, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio around the use of Dante-based systems
is to be warmly welcomed as it helps to bring every installer’s dream of
blanket interoperability that little bit closer to being realised.”
