Audinate opens Asia Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong

Audinate, the creator of Dante, has announced the opening of a new Asia Pacific headquarter in Hong Kong. The office will provide business development, technical sales and customer support to the region.

The decision was fuelled by the growth of the AV industry in Asia Pacific and the rate of adoption for Dante. Audinate has 44 Dante licensees in Asia with 47% of those manufacturers signing up over the course of the last year.

David Myers, COO of Audinate, said: “This expansion reflects Audinate’s success in this important market. The new office will focus on business development and support activities for customers in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea, as well as the ASEAN countries and Australasia.”

Ben Wong, director of sales for Asia Pacific, who recently joined Audinate and will be based out of the new Hong Kong office, said: “The fast adoption of Dante among AV manufacturers in Asia is truly exciting, and is proof that Dante has become the de facto standard in audio networking. These manufacturers are selecting Dante to ensure their products have guaranteed interoperability with the hundreds of other Dante-enabled products available worldwide.”
