Audinate has announced Dante Domain Manager v1.1, promising ‘key improvements and new features’ for users and integrators including new installation options, improved email alerts and notifications, support for SMPTE 2110 devices and secure access to LDAP and SMTP servers.

Dante Domain Manager gives integrators, A/V specialists and IT managers the ability to better manage Dante AV networks by creating groupings of Dante devices called ‘domains’, which are zones of products. It enables administrators to secure systems with user level authentication by domain and to scale their installations by supporting Dante audio across routed IP networks with multiple subnets. Administrators looking to route audio between studios, buildings or even across entire campuses may now do so regardless of network topology.

Audinate Dante Domain Manager v1.1Version 1.1 is now a complete ISO package, making it fast and easy to install and set up Dante Domain Manager to suit a variety of needs and applications. The ISO package may be used in virtual environments such as VMWare ESXi, Oracle VirtualBox and Microsoft Hyper-V, or it may be installed directly onto a ‘bare metal’ server with no additional software required.

Broadcasters can now combine SMPTE 2110 and Dante devices for seamless workflows, for to radio and TV studio connectivity with secure, user-authenticated access. New GPS clock synchronisation enables Dante connectivity between facilities over long distances, allowing broadcasters, educators and IT managers to distribute real-time media at unprecedented distance and scale.

Improvements to email notifications and alerts mean that integrators and managers can remotely monitor changes to systems. Support for LDAPS and SMTPS brings greater security and confidence by encrypting communication to those servers.

‘We are excited to introduce new features in Dante Domain Manager in response to customer feedback.’ says Audinate Senior Product Manager, Neil Philips. ‘The introduction of SMPTE 2110, GPS synchronisation, LDAPS and SMTPS support and improved email alerts make Dante Domain Manager an invaluable tool for administrators across multiple markets, enabling them to efficiently manage large scale Dante systems.’

Dante Domain Manager 1.1 is available for download by new and existing customers with active support agreements.
