Audinate has been awarded a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for its contributions in enabling the production industry’s transition of analog audio and video onto the network.
Used in thousands of products from hundreds of manufacturers, Audinate Dante protocol has developed into a standard for AV connectivity, replacing legacy audio and video connections with high-performance computer networking. It provides the ability to handle hundreds of uncompressed audio channels over a single network cable, resulting in its widespread adoption in media production.
Dante is utilized in high-profile television productions, including this year’s Super Bowl LIV halftime show and the 2020 Grammy awards, and is also deployed extensively in stadiums, performance halls, concert tours and commercial buildings worldwide.
“The title of the award speaks directly to the core of Audinate’s innovation and engineering goals from the founding of the company in 2003 and on to today,” states Aidan Williams, co-founder and CEO of Audinate. “We remain focused on improving the way the world sounds in every application where audio matters. From the local performance space to the voice conferencing solution you use for work, there is a good chance Audinate touches your life to provide better audio.
“Our work in the broadcast and television space is critical: we want all audio to be more effectively utilized by the people who have a message to share. It’s an exciting time and we greatly appreciate the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recognizing the importance of our work,” he concludes.
