At NAB 2014 in Las Vegas,, audio specialist Sennheiser (booth #C3217) has announced its support for the Dante multichannel audio networking standard. Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG signed the Dante License Agreement with Audinate Pty Ltd. at the end of March, just ahead of NAB. Dante is the digital audio networking solution of choice for more than 140 professional audio manufacturers in the broadcast, live sound, commercial installed and conferencing markets.

In 2013, Sennheiser had signed the RAVENNA Partnership Agreement with ALC NetworX GmbH, following in the footsteps of its subsidiary Georg Neumann GmbH. Sennheiser has also been a member of the AVnu Alliance since 2010.

“By joining this standard, we will be able to optimally cater to our customers in the broadcasting and live sound worlds,” explains Claus Menke (pictured), Head of Portfolio Management Pro for Sennheiser’s Professional Division. The first product to make use of the network technology will be the company’s Digital 9000 wireless microphone system. The company states that a Dante-enabled expansion card for the receiver will be launched in summer 2014.

“The future belongs to digital networking," Menke adds. "We see the digital distribution of audio and control signals becoming more and more widespread in all areas of production. The flexibility and modularity of our Digital 9000 wireless system allows the seamless integration of networking technologies, making this and subsequent microphone systems a future-proof investment.”

“Sennheiser is recognised globally for its uncompromised performance,” states Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “The Sennheiser Digital 9000 microphone receiver combined with Audinate’s Dante networking further enriches the broad suite of Dante products available for audio over IP networks in broadcast, live sound, theater and professional audio markets.”
