Yamaha Dante Products to Support AES67 Audio Network Interoperability

September 16th, 2016 | Posted in News, newsletter

Yamaha will successively update its Dante enabled products to support AES67, the AES audio-over-IP interoperability standard. This will allow Yamaha products equipped with Dante networking capability to communicate with Ravenna and other audio networks via AES67.

Beginning with the CL series digital mixing consoles introduced in 2012, Yamaha has included Audinate’s Dante audio networking solution in digital mixers, signal processors, power amplifiers, and other pro audio devices. As of September 2016, a total of 24 Yamaha products offer Dante networking capability.

In February of 2014 Audinate announced that Dante would be updated to support AES67. Yamaha plans to successively update Dante equipped products with device and Dante firmware updates that will add AES67 support, beginning with the CL/QL series digital mixing consoles and R series I/O racks later this year.

“Since the introduction of broadcast oriented features in CL/QL firmware V3, CL/QL consoles have been increasingly adopted by broadcast users and that has led to numerous requests for Ravenna network compatibility” says Yoshi Tsugawa, director of Yamaha’s pro audio business unit. “AES67 support will allow Dante and Ravenna devices to work together in broadcast systems that offer flexibility and efficiency.”
