Cadac has signed a license agreement with Audinate to license its Dante digital audio networking protocol and develop integration solutions for the two companies’ products.
The agreement will enable the two companies to develop an interface solution between Cadac's MegaCOMMS networking technology and the Dante digital audio networking protocol. “The development is part of an ongoing programme to allow Cadac users all the advantages of MegaCOMMS – higher bit rate, lower latency, greater bandwidth and significantly more channels – while interfacing with established industry standard networking and transmission protocols,” said Richard Ferriday, Cadac brand development manager. “In the coming months there will be a Cadac designed and manufactured interface box which will enable MegaCOMMS to seamlessly plug in to Dante based systems.”
The Dante interface box will be the second MegaCOMMS network bridging device to be developed by Cadac for use with its new digital consoles. The company is currently demonstrating a MegaCOMMS MADI bridge, which will be commercially available in the near future.
