Audinate has announced the immediate availability of new Dante Domain Manager v1.4 with support for Dante-enabled video products such as PTZ cameras, HDMI encoders and decoders, and the Dante Studio suite of video tools.
With Dante Domain Manager is designed to provide AV-over-IP systems with IT-level monitoring, security and control. It secures Dante networks by enforcing user authentication and roles to help ensure that only trusted people can make changes to the system, in addition to providing organizational tools that allow Dante devices to be split into functionally independent groups (domains) that correspond to rooms, spaces, buildings and more for improved routing and security.
It also coordinates clocking across the entire network, enabling routing of audio and video across IP subnet boundaries for large systems that span large buildings, multiple studios, or campuses. The dashboard and alerts provide status reports on any issues, anywhere on the network.
“Dante Domain Manager has been a key component of scalable, modern AV-over-IP installations, and truly sets Dante apart from other technologies in AV,” says Laurence Crew, senior product manager at Audinate. “The inclusion of Dante video products means that Dante Domain Manager can encompass complete systems with any mix of audio and video devices, giving AV and IT managers the information they need, exactly when they need it.”
