The Netherlands - Audinate, creators of digital media networking solution Dante, announced at ISE 2015 that 200 manufacturers have now adopted Dante, the Audio over IP networking solution. The company hit this milestone just six months after announcing their 150th manufacturer.

Recent licensees span a wide range of industries and applications, reflecting the universal need for a truly interoperable, low latency, high quality Audio over IP solution. Dante is expanding to include manufacturers from diverse verticals including broadcast, conferencing, information technology and communications.

In addition, Audinate announced that it has shipped over 20m Dante network channels to date with 50% of those shipping in the past 12 months. This proliferation has been driven by an increasing number of earlier licensees now shipping Dante-enabled products, as well as increased demand from the market. Audinate expects this number to continue to accelerate as products from recent licensees hit the market, and existing manufacturers integrate Dante into more products.

Dante's 200th licensee is AD Systems, a German company specializing in amplifiers and loudspeakers.

"We are excited to be Dante's 200th licensee and help celebrate this major milestone," states Sven Haferkamp from AD System. "Including Dante in our products was an easy decision as Dante has become the de facto standard for audio networking and opens up new markets for us."

"We are pleased that so many manufacturers have aligned around Dante as their preferred solution for audio networking," said Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. "The rapid growth we've seen in the last 12 months is indicative that the 'network effect' is in full swing, which will only make Dante more valuable to OEMs and end users alike."
