IT & AV , awkward together no longer with Dante domain manager

Audinate , developer of the Dante media networking technology , has launched its new Dante domain manager platform , a complete network management solution bringing enterprise grade system administration to the AV world . Dante domain manager makes audio networking more secure , more scalable and more manageable than ever before .
Administrators can secure their audio networks from unwanted changes and modifications , and can also scale and segment audio networks regardless of the physical constraints of the network . Integrators can define specific AV device groupings , by room , building and site , allowing for the creation of independent Dante domains and enabling a single Dante domain to encompass multiple IP subnets .
The network domain concept was first successfully pioneered by the IT industry to differentiate and manage multiple private networks within the same infrastructure . Audinate is applying this same approach to AV , customising the features to the needs of AV professionals and end users and effectively providing the community with the opportunity to deploy the best strategies and best practices of both AV and IT . Dante domain manager provides robust security for IT departments and AV managers , including user authentication and control , role administration , and integration with active directory . System managers gain complete visibility and accountability through a suite of user defined dashboards , audit trails , alerts , and messages .
