Audinate Group, developer of Dante AV-over-IP solution, has updated the Dante Studio 2.0 software and announced new subscription pricing. Dante Studio is a suite of software tools comprised of Dante RX, Dante TX, and Dante Video Viewer that brings Dante AV video directly into a PC from Dante AV Ultra or Dante AV-H cameras, encoders, or other computers running Dante Studio on the network with no additional hardware needed.

Dante Studio is part of the Dante AV family of AV-over-IP solutions and shares the Dante control and management platform. Dante Controller handles all device routing, naming, and configuration for audio and video devices, allowing operators to control the entire AV network via a single interface. With Dante Domain Manager all audio and video endpoints can be secured with user access control, actively monitored, and remotely accessed to simplify system maintenance and support.

Dante Video Viewer is a standalone application that allows you to see and monitor a Dante video stream from any Dante AV Ultra or Dante AV-H-enabled device or computer sharing its screen with Dante Video TX on the Dante network in real time.
