The Dante Broadway networking chip has been designed for mid-channel count audio products and is available in 8x8 and 16x16 channel versions. Dante developer Audinate states that it is ‘ideal for adding Dante audio networking to products such as small mixers, power amplifiers, DSPs, hardware interfaces and conferencing solutions’.
Combining the small form factor of Audinate’s Ultimo products with several features from the Brooklyn II module, Dante Broadway reportedly offers latency as low as 0.25ms as well as Gigabit Ethernet support. Redundancy is supported in specific configurations for high-availability applications and a range of control interfaces, including SPI, UART and GPIO is delivered. Dante Device Protocol, packet bridging and AES67 are all supported, while seamless connection to a Dante-enabled audio product is promised.
‘We are pleased to add Dante Broadway to the range of solutions we offer, giving OEMs a cost-effective way to add Dante to mid-tier channel count products,’ said David Myers, COO of Audinate.
