Audinate Updates Dante Controller

News Image
Audinate has announced an update to Dante Controller, enabling end users to better manage larger networks with more high channel count devices.

Dante Controller 3.10 now includes WiFi support, allowing users to manage Dante networks from laptops connected via WiFi. By connecting a wireless access point to a Dante network, adjustments can be made from any location in a facility, unencumbered by cables.

There is also a new Advanced Filter feature which can be used to refine the range of devices displayed. This lets users narrow and refine views when managing large Dante networks. Filter parameters include device and channel names, sample rate, latency setting and lock status.

The update supports the new Device Lock feature for Dante-enabled equipment as well as end-user applications such as Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Via, allowing users to remotely lock supporting Dante hardware and software devices using Dante Controller by employing a user-selected 4-digit PIN. When locked, a device's configuration cannot be changed until it is unlocked with the configured PIN. The feature provides an added layer of protection against unauthorized or unintended changes to a Dante network.

In order to support Device Lock capability, manufacturers of Dante-enabled products will need to update their firmware to the new Dante firmware release 3.10, which has recently been released to OEMs. It is anticipated that manufacturers will release this update to customers over the coming months.

Support for Device Lock will be included in subsequent releases of Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Via.

Josh Rush, VP of Marketing, Audinate, said: "Version 3.10 brings vital enhancements to the Dante platform. It paves the way for future enhancements, and gives managers and operators of Dante networks more control over the systems they supervise."
