Yamaha adopts Audinate’s Dante AV technology

Posted on: Saturday 15th of June 2019

Yamaha Corporation has adopted Audinate’s Dante AV Product Design suite for integrated AV over IP audio/video technology, and has begun the development of an exciting suite of new products targeted at the Pro AV market.

Based on Audinate’s recently-announced Dante AV technology, initial Yamaha AV products will centre around applications requiring the need to breakout and distribute audio and video signals, while maintaining tight synchronisation throughout the facility or venue.

Dante AV solves the problem of networked video and audio synchronisation by utilizing a single network clock for sub-microsecond accuracy. Dante is an IP routable Layer 3 technology, which allows you to use standard IT network switches and cabling that are readily available, making it possible to build highly reliable networks while minimising equipment costs. The Dante AV Product Design Suite includes the industry leading intoPix JPEG2000 codec which is capable of supporting 4K/60 4:4:4 video for visually lossless results with low latency.

Dante AV brings all the benefits that have made Dante the market leading audio over IP solution to video: discovery, ease-of-use and integrated control. Dante AV enables complete interoperability with nearly 2,000 Dante-enabled audio products already on the market. With Dante AV, audio and video signals are independently routable in a single, easy-to-use interface using Dante Controller software.

In recent years, with the development of IT infrastructure, Pro AV (which combines audio and video), is advancing rapidly. AV over IP provides a much more flexible cost-effective solution. Dante AV is a truly groundbreaking technology that seamlessly integrates video transmission and routing over existing 1 Gbps Dante networks.

Yamaha first supported Dante audio networking technology in 2010, with the Mini-YGDAI card DANTE-MY16-AUD. In 2012, Dante interfaces became a standard installed feature on CL Series digital mixing consoles, marking a major change in the professional sound industry. Yamaha has subsequently introduced a number of Dante-compatible products, such as the RIVAGE PM series of flagship digital mixing systems, the MTX / MRX series of matrix processors and the VXL series PoE line array speakers.

“Our collaboration with Audinate over the past 10 years has been extremely beneficial to us,” says Yoshi Tsugawa, Senior General Manager of Yamaha’s Audio Business division. “Having a commercially-supported, complete networking solution provides customers with a trusted solution. Taking advantage of Audinate’s expertise in digital networking has transformed networked audio and we anticipate Dante AV will deliver the same benefits for networked video in the Pro AV industry.”

“We are honoured that Yamaha has selected Dante AV for their new product line. Yamaha has a remarkable history of developing innovative, high-quality digital products,” adds Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “By adding Dante video into Yamaha products, the distribution of audio and video will become easier for customers to deploy integrated solutions.”
