Crestron announced that it has licensed Audinate’s Dante media networking solution. The Dante solution is the market leader for digital media networking.
The association between Crestron and Audinate enables Crestron to integrate Dante into any of its products.
Crestron design and manufactures control and automation systems for corporate, industrial, educational and residential markets. Crestron provides the tools for centrally and globally controlling, managing and presenting information on a single, integrated network.
Dante allows digital audio and control to be distributed via standard Ethernet networks, with near-zero latency and perfect synchronization. Dante’s technology enables even a complex network to configure itself quickly, making system installation simple and easy to use.
“We have selected Dante because it has become the most widely adopted media networking technology,” states John Pavlik, Crestron Director of Architecture & Design. “Dante is a proven networking technology that already has an ecosystem of hundreds of OEM products in the market, with tens of thousands of installations worldwide.
“Crestron is synonymous with control and management of AV installation equipment,” states Lee Ellison CEO of Audinate. “Crestron has always designed products that enhance the customer experience. Combined with Dante’s unparalleled performance, we are excited about the capabilities this offers to system integrators.”
Crestron will update its network of integrators and partners when new products with Dante are available.
