Greater flexibility and scale for limited bandwidth environments

Dante AV-H is a software solution for SoC-based video products that brings the power and interoperability of Dante to H.26x video endpoints. Dante AV-H is less complicated and more flexible to install than point-to-point solutions and with low bandwidth it’s the ideal AV solution for today’s networks.

  • Rapid time to market for manufacturers to bring Dante AV to existing video SoC designs.
  • Uses the popular H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC video compression standards.
  • Up to 8 channels of Dante audio.
  • The lowest bandwidth Dante AV solution perfect for integration into conferencing, higher education, and small production applications.
  • Up to 4Kp60 4:2:0 video resolution 
  • Compatible with Dante Studio software for effortless use in unified communication, lecture capture and streaming software.

Dante Authorized Implementer Program

The Authorized Implementer Program is ideal for manufacturers seeking to quickly add Dante AV-based products in the shortest possible time.

The program gives manufacturers access to turnkey ODM products such as full-featured PTZ cameras and receive/transmit AV-over-IP video endpoints that can be “white-labeled” with the manufacturer's brand. They also get immediate expertise in developing new video products, such as hardware design, software development, supply chain management and regulatory compliance.

If you are an ODM or design firm seeking to expand your market by manufacturing Dante AV products for other OEMs, the Authorized Implementer Program may be a perfect opportunity for you.
