New York (August 7, 2009)–Peavey has expanded networking options for its MediaMatrix product portfolio by including Audinate’s Dante, a compliant IP over Ethernet networking solution for the professional Audio/Visual (AV) industry.
The first MediaMatrix products to have Audinate’s networking technology are the NION nX product family and the CAB 4n audio bridge. The NION system is a configurable DSP core for the commercial, engineered systems marketplace. The CAB 4n is a break-out box designed specifically for NION-based systems that also provides support for legacy MediaMatrix systems.
Audinate’s networking solution, Dante, provides media transport that is tightly synchronized, with sub-millisecond latency. Designed to be a self-configuring, plug-and-play digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols, Dante is a scalable solution that works on both 100Mbits and 1Gigabit Ethernet.
“Audinate brings a level of performance to the marketplace above the existing CobraNet standard,” said Mark Pinske, general manager of Media Matrix, Crest Audio and Architectural Acoustics. “Contractors should take advantage of Dante’s higher bandwidth, lower latency and trouble free configuration that is now available to them.”
“Peavey’s MediaMatrix solution is recognized as one of the market leaders of large scale networked audio systems in stadiums, airports, casinos, hotels, theaters, education and government facilities,” said Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “We are thrilled that Peavey continues to broaden the adoption of Audinate’s solution across their product offering.”
