Parallel to the latest edition of the Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt on the Main, Audinate and MONACOR INTERNATIONAL are moving forward with their cooperation and officially announce that the company based in Bremen becomes an authorised distributor for the new Dante AVIO adapters. Thus, both companies strengthen their already successful cooperation in the area of Audio over IP.

The name Audinate represents a well-established team of developers which can look back on more than 15 years of experience in the field of professional network-based AV technology. With the DT series, MONACOR from Bremen have already focused on the modern Audio over Ethernet technology for several years now. Digitalisation is continuously moving forward which entails great changes, specifically in the field of audio technology. Standard PA technology now also includes the convenient transmission of audio signals via Ethernet and Internet. Hence, the portfolio from MONACOR has been updated accordingly and continuously been complemented by products with Dante interface. Now, the companies take one step further and extend their cooperation with the new Dante AVIO adapters.

With the very wide-ranging AVIO adapters which are available in 6 versions, you are also able to integrate older (analogue) devices into a Dante Audio over IP system without any problems. It is possible to transmit uncompressed and synchronised audio signals with virtually no latency. Thus, noise and ground problems with analogue connections will be a thing of the past. The 6 new AVIO adapters include analogue line in and line out adapters, a bidirectional AES3/EBU adapter and a bidirectional stereo USB adapter which will be available this quarter and can already be pre-ordered.

Steve Greenall, Director of Sales EMEA looks forward to the enhanced cooperation in this growing field: "MONACOR's commitment to presenting Dante products and solutions for the fixed installation market make them an obvious choice to represent and resell the new Audinate Dante® AVIO adapters in Germany. Available in 6 versions, including analogue in/out, USB and AES3, Dante AVIO adapters complement the wide-ranging Dante® solutions available from MONACOR and we are excited by the opportunity this partnership brings to the market."

Thorsten Siebers, Managing Director MONACOR INTERNATIONAL thinks that developing the cooperation holds tremendous potential: "Reliable and user-friendly Audio over IP solutions have become a crucial topic in the field of professional PA technology. With the new Dante AVIO adapters, we can now provide our customers with even more solutions in this highly sophisticated segment. We are certain that these impressive products will quickly be established on the European market and become one of our customers' favourite products."
