Studio Technologies implementing Dante networking
Studio Technologies, a manufacturer of high performance audio, video and fiber-optic products for the professional audio, installation and broadcast markets, recently became Audinate’s 100th Dante licensee and is embracing the audio-over-Ethernet movement by developing a line of Dante-enabled products.
“Studio Technologies prides itself on developing specialized solutions for its customers,” says Studio Technologies president Gordon Kapes. “Our users rely on us to deliver products that will enhance their workflow in both fixed and mobile broadcast applications. Dante has proven its technological excellence, and we are convinced that it is the correct, progressive solution for adding networking technology to our products.”
In the coming months, Studio Technologies will be releasing Dante-enabled products that will support on-air, post-production and AV installation applications. These include announcer’s consoles, party-line intercom interfaces, headphone/line output interface and analogue input interface units.
“Audio-over-Ethernet is not just for the future; it’s ready now for field deployment. It streamlines the setup and teardown process, ensures high-quality audio and provides the flexibility that IP networking offers,” adds Kapes. “These new Dante-enabled products will give our customers the high-quality audio to which they are accustomed to from Studio Technologies, along with the additional flexibility and advanced capabilities that network connectivity provides. We are also going to ensure that these new products stay within our reasonable pricing philosophy and true to our company’s quality standards. Dante is rapidly becoming an integral part of the professional audio world, and we are thrilled to be a part of this revolution.”
