The What: Just prior to the start of this week’s InfoComm India 2019 conference, ZeeVee is announcing support for Dante. The first version of ZeeVee’s ZyPer4K AV decoder with an integrated Dante transmitter is available for immediate shipment and ordering in booth #896. The company will be co-exhibiting with the SDVoE Alliance and NETGEAR.

The What Else: Equipped with Dante technology, the ZeeVee ZyPer4K decoder enables users to route any audio source within a ZyPer4K deployment to a Dante network. Dante audio over IP includes support for features such as “human” readable names for all connected devices, automatic device discovery, one-click routing, and low deterministic latency. In addition, it provides stable performance and enables automatic reconnection of system components after power cycles.

“Dante is a powerful, widely adopted audio distribution solution that manufacturers have integrated into more than 1,600 devices,” said Bob Michaels, CEO, ZeeVee. “Our ability to support Dante in a flagship SDVoE 4K decoder both supports and enhances the principle of product interoperability that’s central to our market approach. It makes ZyPer4K a very attractive option for companies looking for the best solutions in professional-grade AV networking.” 

Like all Dante devices, the Dante transmitter found in the ZyPer4K decoder is managed by the Dante Controller application. This virtual patch panel provides for the convenient connecting of devices, clocking, sampling control, and the ability to manually choose between unicast and multicast signal distribution.

The Bottom Line: Audio from any ZyPer4K encoder can be routed directly to a Zyper4K decoder and inserted onto the Dante network via the embedded Dante transmitter. In addition, the ZyPer4K system allows video and audio to be independently routed, so users can opt to route both signals from different sources to the decoder.
