Audinate today announced plans to support SMPTE ST-2110 in the Dante platform by the end of 2018. SMPTE ST-2110 is a new suite of standards developed by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers to support real-time media network distribution using IP networking technology. The update will include support for a number of relevant standards, including SMPTE ST-2110-10, 2110-30 and 2059-2.
When released, the SMPTE 2110 feature will be enabled through the Dante Domain Manager software platform and firmware updates for Dante IP Core, Dante HC, Dante Brooklyn II and Dante Ultimo. These Dante technologies are featured in a wide variety of products used by the broadcast industry and will be highlighted through Audinate’s participation in plug-fests and showcases.
Separate to today’s announcement of Dante support for SMPTE ST-2110, the company also announced the availability of Dante firmware 4.1 for the Ultimo UXT family of audio networking chipsets, which enables support for AES67. According to Rush, this second announcement further emphasizes the brand commitment to interoperability.
