ISE 2017: Audinate previews Dante Domain Manager

Tuesday, 7 February 2017

The Netherlands - Audinate is giving visitors to ISE 2017 the first opportunity to see the revolutionary 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, says the company.
Dante Domain Manager allows administrators to secure their audio networks from unwanted changes and modifications, and provides the ability to scale and segment audio networks regardless of the physical constraints of the network. With Dante Domain Manager, 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, customizing 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, r

ISE 2017: Barco enhances Event Master portfolio

Tuesday, 7 February 2017

The Netherlands - Barco is enhancing its successful Event Master portfolio of screen management systems with an expansion unit. The Event Master Ex processor adds unseen possibilities to extend the Event Master systems. Linking the Ex with the Event Master processors (E2 or S3-4K), not only allows users to grow their input and output capacity, more importantly, it enables them to expand the scaling and switching power of their entire system.
When linked with a fibreoptic cable the Ex can be in a different location than the E2 or S3-4K, up to 100 meters away, acting as a true stage box. The new Ex processor is currently shipping.
“Our popular Event MasterTM processors excel in versatility and flexibility as they can be tuned to any show size or configuration,” comments Chris Colpaert, VP image processing at Barco. “With the introduction of the Ex, we offer video professionals a broader choice of configuration options. They can choose from our pre-populated boxes, such as the E2 and S3-4K, custom build-to-order systems, or link additional boxes, like the Ex, when their needs grow.”
“With the new Ex system the mad scientists from Sacramento prove again that they are truly listening to the needs in the market,” says Francesco Elsing, global director video services at Satis&fy. “In combination with the Gen 2 input cards, the Event Master s
