Audinate to Launch AVIO Adapters at NAMM - ProSoundNetwork.com
Legacy analog, AES3 and USB audio devices can be incorporated into Dante networks.

Anaheim, CA (January 19, 2018)—Audinate will introduce Dante AVIO, a family of endpoint adapters that enable audio professionals to connect legacy analog and digital audio equipment to Dante networks, at the 2018 NAMM Show.

The Dante AVIO series features six new adapters including line-in and line-out analog adapters, a bi-directional AES3/EBU adapter and a bi-directional stereo USB adapter. Each Dante AVIO adapter acts as a completely independent Dante network device.

“Audio networking has been growing rapidly, but we recognize there are still millions of legacy endpoint devices that could benefit from the flexibility and scalability Dante delivers,” stated Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Our new line of Dante AVIO adapters enables live sound engineers, systems integrators and even home recording enthusiasts to easily integrate their audio equipment into a Dante network.”

The Dante AVIO analog adapters are available as dedicated inputs or outputs with one or two channels of audio. Analog input adapters allow mixers, mic preamps, stage DIs and more to connect to a Dante audio network, while analog output adapters can be used for driving amplifiers, powered speakers or recorders. Long runs of noisy analog cable can be eliminated, and all signal routes are managed via Dante Controller software.

The Dante AVIO USB adapter connects any computer to a Dante audio network without additional software, providing class-compliant stereo input and output that can be used by any audio application. The Dante AVIO USB adapter may be passed between computers without altering networked audio connections.

The Dante AVIO AES3 adapter provides stereo input and output, allowing AES3-connected DSPs, mixers, compressors, preamps and more to be fully connected to any Dante network with no degradation of signal from extraneous D/A and A/D conversion.
