NAMM 2018: Audinate introducing Dante AVIO Adapters

Audinate will be at the NAMM Show this week demonstrating Dante AVIO, its new family of cost-effective endpoint adapters that enable audio professionals to connect legacy analogue and digital audio equipment to Dante networks.

The Dante AVIO series features six new adapters including line-in and line-out analogue 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, allowing legacy gear to enjoy the benefits of networked audio.

The Dante AVIO Analogue adapters are available as dedicated inputs or outputs with one or two channels of audio. Analogue input adapters allow mixers, mic preamps, stage DIs and more to connect to a Dante audio network, while analogue output adapters are used for driving amplifiers, powered speakers or recorders.

The Dante AVIO USB adapter connects any computer to a Dante audio network without additional software, providing stereo input and output that can be used by any audio application. Ideal for presentations and conference rooms, 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, preserving investments in AES3-connected DSPs, mixers, compressors, preamps and more. Any AES3 device may be fully connected to any Dante network with no degradation of signal due to extraneous D/A and A/D conversion.

The company will showcase its new line of Dante AVIO adapters on Booth #18004 at the upcoming NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA from 25-28 January. The adapters will start with an MSRP of $129 USD and will be available through retailers and system integrators in Q2 2018.
