Dante Domain Manager enables integrators to define custom domains – specific AV device groupings, by room, building and site regardless of physical network infrastructure. Dante Domain Manager also provides robust security for IT departments and AV managers, including user authentication and role administration, while the Gold and Platinum editions enable integration with Active Directory for larger installations. With Dante Domain Manager, system managers gain complete visibility and accountability through a suite of user-defined dashboards, audit trails, alerts, and messages.
The Silver edition provides the features listed above, with a maximum of two domains and 10 audio devices. The Silver edition is ideal for installations that primarily require user management, such as smaller houses of worship or schools.
The Gold edition includes integration with Active Directory and supports up to 10 domains and up to 50 devices. This edition is suited to many mid-sized business environments, allowing for easy management of multiple rooms and public spaces.
The Platinum edition expands support up to 50 domains and up to 250 devices, and includes SNMP alerting and a fully redundant high availability option for mission-critical systems. The Platinum edition covers the management needs of large scale installations, supporting many users, rooms and devices spread over a wide area.
All editions of Dante Domain Manager enable the creation of Dante domains to isolate and organise audio devices, permission-driven user accounts, cross-subnet routing of audio, and powerful administrative features to monitor user actions and system status in key areas.
“Dante Domain Manager reflects an IT model whereby users can tailor the functionality to their needs and budgets,” said Joshua Rush, Vice President of Marketing, Audinate. “The three different options will provide AV and IT professionals with the ability to provide scalable and secure networked solutions to flexibly manage their systems.”
Audinate will be officially releasing Dante Domain Manager later this year – it will be sold through a network of integrators and dealers. Dante Domain Manager will be enabled by the latest 4.0 firmware, which will be released to manufacturers in the near future.
