Dante Connect introduces support for Google Cloud

Audinate has joined the Google Cloud Partner Advantage programme as a partner in the build engagement model, enabling customer flexibility to deploy audio transmission and production with Dante Connect in Google Cloud environments.

“Dante Connect on Google Cloud provides broadcasters with more options to meet their production flexibility and cost-saving goals in any deployment configuration. We are proud to have Audinate as a partner serving the demanding broadcast market,” said Kip Schauer, global head of media & entertainment and gaming partnerships at Google Cloud.

Dante Connect is a suite of software applications that facilitate cloud-based broadcast production, combining the familiarity, ease of use and tight synchronisation of Dante audio with seamless connectivity to centralised production tools running on cloud instances.

The news comes on the back of Audinate introducing remote contribution functionality for Dante Connect.

Dante Connect adds WebRTC-powered remote contribution functionality to the existing uncompressed Dante audio transport streams. The remote contribution feature allows Dante sources connected to the internet worldwide to be captured as an audio source, giving customers a new, lower-bandwidth option to easily add a commentator or any other audio stream to the broadcast. This high-quality compressed source is transmitted using WebRTC functionality, ensuring the highest quality possible without requiring expensive dedicated transmission lines. Paired with the existing remote monitoring functionality, broadcasters gain new options for production staff to monitor, contribute to and produce content remotely.
