PORTLAND, Ore. — Audinate, developer of the industry-leading Dante® media networking technology, has announced today its initial roster of over 20 resellers for Dante Domain Manager, a network management solution that brings enterprise-grade system administration to the AV world.
Dante Domain Manager makes audio networking more secure, more scalable and more manageable than ever before. It enables the creation of Dante domains to group and organize audio devices, permission-driven user accounts, cross-subnet routing of audio, and has powerful administrative features to monitor user actions and system status in key areas. It is offered as a software license and will be available for purchase through authorized resellers worldwide.
Audinate’s reseller channel is being developed to promote, sell, and support the Dante Domain Manager solution to end users as it becomes commercially released.

The benefits of Dante Domain Manager for resellers are numerous. First, it provides a higher level of security against unwanted changes through the creation of user roles and permissions. Second, by allowing for robust monitoring and alerting, it notifies integrators about potential issues early and provides them with detailed diagnostic information. In addition, the scalability that Dante Domain Manager provides allows system designers and integrators the flexibility to build Dante networks to the exact specifications of the customer, regardless of the constraints of the physical network infrastructure.
“As Dante has increased in popularity, the ability to provide the security and management features of Dante Domain Manager is a natural next step,” said Matt McNeil, Chief Design Officer at Conference Technologies, Inc. “We are excited to be one of the early resellers for Dante Domain Manager as it provides the peace of mind to know that systems are secure from unwanted changes, and gives our customers the ability to manage their audio networks the same way they manage the rest of their IT equipment.”
“IP is becoming the common standard within the broadcast industry,” said Alexander Kritschker, Head of Professional Products at Qvest Media. “With Dante Domain Manager, we are now able to offer secure and reliable audio-over-IP solutions for our worldwide customer base.”
“We’re proud to be one of the first companies on board as an Australian and New Zealand reseller of Dante Domain Manager,” said Mark Lownds, General Manager at tm stagetec systems. “At tm stagetec systems, we are constantly looking for ways to better service our clients in our role as technology integrators.
