Yamaha announces Dante interface updates at PLASA 2012

Users of Yamaha’s PM5D, M7CL, LS9 consoles and DME series digital mixing engines are set to benefit from new updates to be introduced at PLASA 2012 for the Dante-MY16-AUD interface card that will allow the devices to control the head amps on the company’s new Rio i/o rackmount interfaces.

A key feature of Yamaha’s CL series of mixing consoles is the ability to control the head amps of the systems’ new Rio i/o rackmount interfaces. This facility will now be available to users of other Yamaha digital mixers as a result of the updated firmware of the Dante card and a new version of Audinate’s Dante Controller software.

“There are thousands of Yamaha digital consoles in use all over the world and the optional Dante-MY16-AUD interface card already gives them access to the Dante network,” said Nick Cook, European Marketing director, Commercial Audio. “The ability to now control the Rio i/o interfaces will add tremendous flexibility to our customers’ rental stocks.”

The head amp control is achieved via a new HA Remote tab in the Device View screen of Dante Controller, a Windows/Mac software application from Audinate, run on a laptop as part of the network.

The update will be available as a free download via Yamaha’s web site in the coming weeks and will be on demonstration at the company’s stand 1-F32 at PLASA 2012, which takes place at London’s Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre from 9th - 12th September.
