Audinate Releases Dante PCIe Update

News Image
Audinate has released its latest firmware update for the Dante PCIe soundcard.

Version 3.7.1 delivers new features such as audio signal presence indicators, latency statistics monitoring and packet error detection. The Dante PCIe high performance soundcard may also now be used with several Thunderbolt expansion chassis to enable connection to computers such as Apple's Mac Pro, MacBook Pro and Mac mini.

The Dante PCIe soundcard has been certified to run with Apple's latest version MAC OS 10.10. It will now also run on Microsoft Windows servers. Both Windows Server 2008 R2 and Window Server 2012 R2 are supported.

Thunderbolt expansion chassis support has been validated against the following chassis:

• Sonnet Technologies' entire family of Echo Express and rack mount expansion chassis
• Magma ExpressBox 1T 1 Slot Thunderbolt to PCIe Expansion Chassis
• Other World Computing (OWC) Mercury Helios PCIe Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis

The Dante PCIe Soundcard supports up to 128 channels of bi-directional audio with incredibly low latency.

"Professionals migrating to Thunderbolt based workstations and workflows will now be able to utilise Dante PCIe soundcards," Said Tim Miller, President of Magma. "Magma's ExpressBox 1T offers a compact and portable solution for housing the Dante PCIe soundcard while offering Thunderbolt 2 speed."

"Our customers have been anxiously waiting for the very popular Dante PCIe soundcard to become certified as compatible with our line of Echo Express Thunderbolt expansion chassis as well as xMac Mini and Pro Servers," said Greg LaPorte, vice president of sales and marketing, Sonnet Technologies.

The Dante PCIe soundcard has been enhanced to support the advanced Dante Controller feature set to monitor the status of the audio network. This allows the Dante Controller to remotely detect audio signal presence on computers running the Dante PCIe soundcard, which can also report latency statistics and packet errors to the Dante Controller.
