Audinate announces Dante Connect to enable cloud-based workflows for broadcasters

HHB Communications named the first channel partner for Dante Connect

New software suite provides efficient remote production workflows, ingesting audio directly from on-premises devices for processing in cloud services

Audinate, developer of the professional AV-industry leading Dante® AV-over-IP solution, today announced the availability of Dante Connect. Dante Connect is a suite of software applications that facilitate cloud-based broadcast production and is a powerful platform for A1s and mixing engineers, combining the familiarity, ease of use and tight synchronization of Dante audio with seamless connectivity to centralized production tools running on cloud instances.

Dante Connect gets Dante audio into the cloud so mixing engineers, operators and broadcast A1s can use it with production and editing suites accessed from anywhere. It transports audio to and from production software running in cloud-based virtual machines (VMs) that can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. Benefits of Dante Connect include:

  • Local Dante devices connect directly to cloud services.
  • 256 channels of audio per VM
  • Dante audio between cloud VMs allows endless expansion of capabilities.
  • Extend Dante Connect across multiple instances and regions for worldwide coverage.
  • Remote monitoring allows producers to check on audio over a lightweight webRTC connection without risk of interruption to source channels.

“Dante Connect lets broadcasters easily capture, mix and produce audio with efficient REMI workflows,” says Bryce Dunn, Senior Director of Product Management at Audinate. “It reduces the need for expensive OB trucks and ground crew and lets talented mixing engineers work from wherever they are located using centralized resources. This lowers expenses and enables many more events to be cost-effectively produced.”

Audinate are also excited to announce their first channel partner for Dante Connect, HHB Communications. The UK’s leader in pro audio technology, HHB is a long-time reseller of Dante Domain Manager and Dante-enabled products from a variety of manufacturers. “For the past forty years HHB Communications has had the opportunity to launch the latest pro audio technical innovations to the UK market,” comments Rob Waters, General Manager at HHB. “Dante Connect is the next step in cloud-based workflows and HHB looks forward to bringing this next-level technology to broadcast professionals across EMEA.”
