Audinate Strengthens Dante Domain Manager Software with New Release

August 29 2018, 00:50
Demonstrating its commitment to providing systems integrators and end-users with the strongest network technologies, Audinate introduced an update to its Dante Domain Manager software. The new version provides advances in diagnostics and usability, extended auto discovery for legacy devices and increased support for larger networks, with more devices supported - over 1,000 audio networking devices.

Dante Domain Manager is Audinate’s enterprise-grade network management solution, making audio networking more secure, scalable and controllable than ever before. The technology provides AV and IT professionals with the ability to define specific AV device groupings by room, building and site, through the creation of independent Dante Domains. Each domain has multiple access levels to improve network security, and enables scalability by allowing audio routing across multiple IP subnets.
Commenting on the update, Joshua Rush, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Products, Audinate states, “Since its introduction to the market earlier this year, Dante Domain Manager has been extremely well received by OEMs, integrators and end customers. These new enhancements make Dante Domain Manager that much more valuable by providing additional features that enhance the scalability and ease of use of the platform.”
For larger Dante installations, users can purchase expansion packs for the Platinum Edition to support up to 1,050 devices per instance of Dante Domain Manager. The automatic device discovery service that users have grown accustomed to with 4.0 firmware devices, has now been extended to legacy (pre-v4.0) devices. This makes it easier to for products with and without the 4.0 firmware to co-exist in Dante Domain Manager.
Designed to accelerate setup, configuration and troubleshooting, the Network Diagnostics Report provides instant visibility of basic network configuration via connectivity, DHCP, DNS and Internet reachability tests. Available in the Network & Security settings, there is now a single click function to quickly establish if there are any fundamental configuration errors on the network. Users can also now rename Dante domains without having to delete and recreate them.
Available in three editions, Dante Domain Manager can be tailored to meet user needs and budgets while maintaining the agility, scalability and security necessary to create a trusted audio network.
