Audinate announced the addition Monday of two new models to its line of Dante AVIO audio adapters, offering USB-C and Bluetooth connectivity for use with Dante networks.

The Dante AVIO family of adapters allow users to use non-networked audio equipment on a Dante audio network. The Dante AVIO is available in one- or two-channel analog input or output configurations as well as AES3/EBU, USB and Bluetooth versions.

The Dante AVIO USB-C adapter allows devices with USB-C ports to deliver and receive two channels of audio with a Dante audio network. It is a class-compliant USB audio device that requires no additional drivers and works with any application, making it ideal for the setup of conference rooms, background music and more. The Dante AVIO USB-C adapter may be powered by the connected device or via PoE, and it works with standard USB-C to USB-A adapters. When using PoE, it features a power pass-through for mobile devices, enabling smartphones to remain charged while connected to a Dante network.

The Dante AVIO Bluetooth adapter provides wireless connectivity to Dante networks for mobile devices and computers. It is ideal for both playback from smartphones to larger sound systems, and for connecting networked speakers and microphones to conferencing software. Once configured, a user may rely upon Bluetooth to switch from local smartphone audio to a complete conferencing system to share what is being said with others.

The Dante AVIO USB-C and the Dante AVIO Bluetooth adapters will be available from authorized resellers in Q3 of 2020.
