Sennheiser Supports Dante Multi-Channel Audio Networking Standard
+- Print Email Share RSS RSS

At NAB 2014 Sennheiser has announced its support for the Dante multi-channel audio networking standard.

“By joining this standard, we will be able to optimally cater to our customers in the broadcasting and live sound worlds,” explains Claus Menke, head of portfolio management pro for the Sennheiser professional division.

The first product to make use of the network technology will be the company’s Digital 9000 wireless microphone system. A Dante-enabled expansion card for the receiver will be launched in summer 2014.

Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG signed the Dante License Agreement with Audinate Pty Ltd at the end of March, just ahead of NAB. In 2013, Sennheiser had signed the RAVENNA Partnership Agreement with ALC NetworX GmbH, following in the footsteps of its subsidiary Georg Neumann GmbH. Sennheiser has also been a member of the AVnu Alliance since 2010.

“The future belongs to digital networking. We see the digital distribution of audio and control signals becoming more and more widespread in all areas of production,” Menke notes. “The flexibility and modularity of our Digital 9000 wireless system allows the seamless integration of networking technologies, making this and subsequent microphone systems a future-proof investment.”

“Sennheiser is recognized globally for its uncompromised performance,” states Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “The Sennheiser Digital 9000 microphone receiver combined with Audinate’s Dante networking further enriches the broad suite of Dante products available for audio over IP networks in broadcast, live sound, theatre, and professional audio markets.”
