Sennheiser supports Dante
WORLD: Sennheiser has announced support for Dante in a selection of upcoming products. The first to make use of the network technology will be the manufacturer’s Digital 9000 wireless microphone system. A Dante-enabled expansion card for the receiver will subsequently be launched this summer.
‘The future belongs to digital networking. We see the digital distribution of audio and control signals becoming more and more widespread in all areas of production,’ said Claus Menke, head of portfolio management pro for Sennheiser’s Professional Division.. ‘The flexibility and modularity of our Digital 9000 wireless system allows for the seamless integration of networking technologies, making this and subsequent microphone systems a future-proof investment.’
The Dante License Agreement is the not first time the manufacturer has embraced open connectivity. In 2013, it signed the Ravenna Partnership Agreement with ALC NetworX GmbH, and has also been a member of the AVnu Alliance since 2010.
‘Sennheiser is recognised globally for its uncompromised performance,’ stated Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. ‘The Sennheiser Digital 9000 microphone receiver combined with Audinate’s Dante networking further enriches the broad suite of Dante products available for audio over IP networks in broadcast, live sound, theatre, and professional audio markets.’
