Amsterdam, Holland (February 10, 2015)—Audinate’s Dante Audio-over-IP networking solution, has hit a milestone with 200 manufacturers enrolled as licensees. AD Systems, a German company specializing in amplifiers and loudspeakers, was the 200th company.
According to Audinate, recent licensees span a range of industries and applications, including broadcast, conferencing, information technology and communications.
In addition, Audinate announced that it has shipped over 20 million Dante network channels to date with 50 percent of those shipping in the past 12 months. This proliferation has been driven by an increasing number of earlier licensees now shipping Dante-enabled products, as well as increased demand from the market. Audinate expects this number to continue to accelerate as products from recent licensees hit the market, and existing manufacturers integrate Dante into more products.
“We are pleased that so many manufacturers have aligned around Dante as their preferred solution for audio networking,” said Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “The rapid growth we’ve seen in the last 12 months is indicative that the ‘network effect’ is in full swing, which will only make Dante more valuable to OEMs and end users alike.”
