Latin America. Demonstrating its unmatched ability to connect devices, content and creative communities, Audinate introduced Dante Studio, a platform solution to enhance AV production capabilities and optimize workflows.
Resident on this platform, Audinate's applications will provide integrators and end users with professional-grade tools for better and specialized video networks. The first tool in Dante Studio, Dante Video RX, allows Windows PCs to receive video simply and seamlessly from any Dante AV-enabled source.
According to Joshua Rush, Chief Marketing Officer at Audinate, the presentation is a critical phase of building the Dante AV ecosystem. "Dante Video RX completes the end-to-end video workflow: it complements the growing ecosystem of Dante AV hardware products, including cameras, encoders and set-top boxes, and allows Dante AV signals to be easily ingested into PC platforms and software applications. Dante Video RX facilitates a wide variety of network video use cases ranging from the video production and streaming markets to corporate and higher education."
Dante Studio comprises a variety of software solutions that bring Dante video features to PCs. With Dante Video RX, computers can receive a video signal from Dante AV transmitters or Dante AV cameras on their network. Dante Video RX supports 1080p resolution, 60 frames per second, and system timing and synchronization along with separate routing of video and audio elements. Dante Video RX will soon support 4K video. Easily adapts to Dante-based environments running on standard 1Gb Ethernet infrastructures.
Easy to acquire and deploy, users simply download the Dante Studio installer, activate the Dante Video RX trial license, and configure their system using standard Dante Controller software. Dante Video RX runs in the background and makes it easy to use high-quality video streams from anywhere on the network. The tool is especially useful for conferences and educational applications.
Video streams from a legacy camera can be powered through a Dante AV encoder and then connected to Dante Video RX for high-quality recording, streaming, and conferencing applications. Dante Video RX can also be used with OBS software or with platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, vMix or Panopto to give a cinematic look to presentations, conferences and lessons.
New tools are being developed within Dante Studio, including Dante Video TX, a virtual transmitter, and Dante Video Viewer, a virtual monitor, and Audinate expects to release them later this year.
