Audinate releases Dante Controller with Dante updater feature

Posted on: Friday 9th of August 2019

Dante Updater is a new feature that makes it easy to update firmware in Dante devices. As odd as it may seem to celebrate an “update to update”, as AoIP networks become more complex, controller software to make sure network devices support the latest functionality is essential. This type of hardware maintenance is already commonplace in other areas of distributed IT. Firmware files are hosted by Audinate so they are always up-to-date. Dante Updater allows product manufacturers to more easily bring critical updates to customers by making them available directly in Dante Controller with one-click installation.

Dante Updater continues Dante Controller’s famed ease of use, automatically discovering and associating updates with connected devices in a clear, unambiguous interface. Now customers can take full advantage of new Dante features and capabilities without hunting for product-specific installers and can deploy updates to an entire system at once.

“Dante Updater is a win-win for Dante users and manufacturers alike,” says Neil Philips, Product Manager at Audinate. “Audinate’s updater program allows manufacturers to include their specific firmware updates directly in Dante Updater for error- and headache-free deployment by end-users. Support costs are reduced, and users always have the latest features at their fingertips for the best possible Dante-enabled product experience.”

Dante Controller with Dante Updater is free for all users and is available now at http://www.audinate.com/dc.

In July, Audinate announced commercial availability of their new Dante AV Module . Patton Electronics, a US manufacturer and OEM/ODM supplier of networking and connectivity solutions for Pro-AV and Telephony, was first to announce they will adopt the platform into a new generation of AV-Over-IP products.
