Yamaha Corporation will develop new Dante enabled products after announcing that it has adopted Audinate's Dante AV product design suite.

The new products will focus on applications that need to breakout and distribute audio and video signals while maintaining tight synchronisation throughout a facility or venue. 

Yamaha first supported Dante audio networking technology in 2010, with the Mini-YGDAI card DANTE-MY16-AUD. In 2012, Dante interfaces became a standard installed feature on CL Series digital mixing consoles. Yamaha has subsequently introduced a number of Dante-compatible products, such as the Rivage PM series of flagship digital mixing systems, the MTX / MRX series of matrix processors and the VXL series PoE line array speakers.

Yoshi Tsugawa, senior general manager of Yamaha’s Audio Business division, said: “Taking advantage of Audinate’s expertise in digital networking has transformed networked audio and we anticipate Dante AV will deliver the same benefits for networked video in the Pro AV industry.”
