5th Annual Dante AV Networking World at ISE 2015

February 5 2015, 05:00
With Dante established as the standard and dominant networking technology in the professional audio/visual industry, used extensively for live performance events, commercial installation, broadcast, recording and production, and communications systems, the ISE 2015 show will be a key opportunity for Audinate to consolidate its efforts, promote education and make strategic announcements.

The 5th annual Dante AV Networking World event at ISE 2015 will be the ideal opportunity to get a glimpse on the future of audio networking technology, with a series of informative presentations and hands-on workshops. The event will be held Monday, 9 February 2015 at the Amsterdam Holiday Inn near the RAI Convention Center.

The free all-day event will feature presentations, training workshops and interactive panel discussions led by industry design consultants, AV installation contractors and IT networking experts. The event will also feature a major interoperability networking demonstration of Dante-enabled products and systems, several of which are debuting at ISE from the industry’s leading audio manufacturers.

25 leading audio equipment manufacturers are co-sponsoring this year’s conference including Ashly, AtteroTech, Audio-Technica, Bosch, Bose, BSS, Crest Audio, Delec, Focusrite/RedNet, Harman Professional, Lab.gruppen, Lake, Nexo, NTP, Peavey Commercial Audio, Powersoft, PreSonus, Stewart Audio,  Soundcraft, StageTec, Studio Technologies, Symetrix, Tendzone and Yamaha.
Presentations cover a variety of topics, including “A market research report on the state of audio networking,” presented by RH Consulting, “Networking 101- Understanding Networking Basics” by Audinate, and a presentation on “How Media Networking Drives Innovation”, by Ethan Wetzell, representing the OCA Alliance (the OCA is also expected to make some key announcements at ISE 2015).

Before the Cocktail Party and Interoperability Demo at the closing of the event, Aidan Williams, Audinate’s CTO, is expected to discuss Dante’s roadmap and reveal some new initiatives.

In addition, a hands-on Dante workshop will bring together teams of participants to demonstrate how quickly and creatively a Dante network can be designed. The event will include raffles, giveaways and surprises throughout the day, as well as a sponsored lunch for all attendees and a hosted networking mixer at the end of the day. The event is being co-sponsored and supported by Yamaha Commercial Audio.

The Amsterdam Holiday Inn is close to the city’s RAI, where ISE 2015 takes place from 10th - 12th February.
