It’s Not Often an AV Company Wins an Emmy, But Audinate Did

audinate emmy winner
Audinate, the developer of Dante, has won a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award for its contributions in enabling the production industry’s transition of analog audio and video onto the network.

Used in thousands of products from hundreds of manufacturers, Audinate’s Dante is the de-facto standard for modern AV connectivity. Dante has revolutionized the AV industry by replacing legacy audio and video connections with easy-to-use, ultra-high-performance computer networking.

Dante’s ability to handle hundreds of uncompressed audio channels over a single network cable is why the protocol has become so popular in media production. Television is evolving with demand for additional audio as viewers seek an immersive experience. Producing a reality TV show might require dozens and dozens of microphones to capture all of the action going on simultaneously. Likewise, live sporting events are incorporating more audio as players and coaches are now employing live microphone feeds.

Dante is used in high-profile television productions, including this year’s Super Bowl LIV halftime show and the 2020 Grammy awards. It is used extensively in stadiums, performance halls, concert tours and commercial buildings worldwide.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recognized the company’s work with an Emmy Award for the “Development of Synchronized multichannel uncompressed audio transport over IP Networks.”
