Audinate is the developer of patent-pending Dante™ digital media networking technology, an Internet Protocol and Ethernet-based digital AV network technology that eliminates much of the cabling required for point-to-point wiring for analog AV installations.

The company’s Dante-MY16-AUD Card enables any Yamaha mixer, processor, or power amp with Dante technology. A Yamaha Mini-YGDAI standard card, each MY16-AUD provides 16 bidirectional audio channels (eight at 96kHz) and full Dante network audio redundancy over Gigabit Ethernet. One of our judges says, "Audinate could possibly change the way we think of playback." The cards are distributed exclusively by Yamaha.
