Audinate Announces Dante Ready Licensing Program

Audinate, developer of Dante AV over IP technology, announces the availability of Dante Ready, a new licensing program that gives customers the ability to purchase and add channels of Dante audio to supported products in the field. Dante Ready is designed to allow makers to lower costs at the time of manufacture and give their customers the ability to purchase only the channels that are required for an application.

Dante Ready will initially be made available for devices built using Dante Embedded Platform, a software implementation of Dante audio designed for Linux-based audio appliances. Dante Ready lets customers activate Dante as software online while devices are in the field, purchasing only as many channels of Dante audio as they require, from 2×2 to 64×64. Once activated, the product license never expires and can be expanded as needed through later purchases. All purchases are routed through Audinate’s secure payment system.

“Dante Ready is a win for both manufacturers and audio professionals,” says Audinate Sr. Product Manager Laurence Crew. “Manufacturers can integrate Dante Embedded Platform at a very low cost, and end-users can choose exactly what they need for the jobs to be done. They don’t need to make that decision in an up-front purchase, but may enable channels on demand.”
