Dante adds Video – Dante AV debuts at ISE next week!

Dante AV

The tipping point of convergence looks like it’s finally here; Audinate’s new codec agnostic Dante AV Module has been released for manufacturers to incorporate into their products. We’re currently wishing we’d actually bought shares in the company back when we could afford them!

We’ll be at ISE next week to get the first look at Dante AV, which will leverage Dante’s already vast  presence in AoIP to finally add the V we’ve all been waiting for. Here’s Audinate’s press release in full:
