The company has announced the release of Dante firmware v4.0 for the Brooklyn II audio networking module. Dante firmware 4.0 delivers critical support for Dante Domain Manager (DDM), alongside performance improvements and bug fixes, said Audinate.
This release allows manufacturers to immediately provide field upgrades for existing products to make them DDM-ready.
Brooklyn II v4.0 is a key component in the Dante 4.0 system update, which will implement DDM support across the Dante ecosystem. Only products that are updated with the v4.0 firmware will be able to fully participate in Dante Domains.
Audinate described the forthcoming Dante Domain Manager as bringing essential new functionality to Dante networks, including user authentication, role-based security and audit capabilities, while allowing nearly unlimited expansion and organisation of Dante systems over any network topology.
The virtualised application will run on Windows and Linux desktop and server platforms, with an intuitive and highly responsive web interface, claimed the company.
