USB-C adapters connect modern mobile devices and computers to any Dante audio network and are now available at resellers worldwide.

Audinate has announced the immediate availability of the Dante AVIO USB-C adapter, considered the next evolution in the popular Dante AVIO family. The Dante AVIO USB-C adapter allows the latest mobile devices and computers to connect to any Dante audio network for playout or recording.

Cost effective, compact and rugged, the Dante AVIO family of adapters allow users to easily use non-Dante analog, USB, AES3/EBU or Bluetooth audio equipment with a Dante audio network.

Dante AVIO USB-C adapter connects to devices with USB-C or A ports (cables included) to deliver and receive two channels of audio over a Dante audio network. It requires no additional drivers and works with any application, making it ideal for rapid setup of conference rooms, background music and more.

The adapter may be powered via USB or PoE. When connected to a PoE Ethernet switch, 7.5W of power is available to USB-C compatible mobile devices, enabling smartphones and tablets to remain charged while connected to a Dante network.

“The new Dante AVIO USB-C is the logical evolution of our immensely popular USB model,” said Audinate Senior Product Manager, Mark Gerrard. “With native support for the ports on the latest tablets, phones and computers, Dante AVIO USB-C adds pass-through power to make it the indispensable tool for connecting devices to Dante audio networks.”
