VUE Audiotechnik is unveiling Dante support for its digital DSP-enabled systems at InfoComm 2015 (Booth 573). Planned for both the h-Class family of Ultra-High Definition Speaker Systems and V Series DSP/Amplifier Systems Engines, the update, set to officially ship in September, will be incorporated within all future products, and upgrades will be available for owners of existing systems.
Recognising from the start that audio networking is essential to the future of sound systems, the team at VUE Audiotechnik included Ethernet in both product lines to accommodate control, with the expectation that future expansion would include Dante audio networking. With the recent unveiling of the Dante Ultimo chip, a cost-effective but feature-rich Dante solution for low channel-count applications, all VUE DSP systems can now include the functionality at a competitive price point. Like every Dante product, the Ultimo allows the VUE h-class and V Series systems to operate in any Dante environment, with routing of audio streams for each individual Dante-enabled product.
“We’d been waiting for a cost-effective solution for audio-over-Ethernet, and Dante has clearly become the industry standard for audio networking,” says Ken Berger, CEO of VUE Audiotechnik. “The Dante Ultimo chipset allows us to include full network functionality at a reasonable cost for our customers. Now that it’s here, we’re updating our DSP products to include the technology.”
“We are pleased to be working with VUE Audiotechnik who, with their new line of Dante enabled products, is driving innovation to facilitate AV/IT convergence,” adds Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Distributing audio-over-IP not only improves audio quality, but enhances the flexibility of the sound system.”
