Incorporate Dante audio
The integration of Dante enabled audio for Teams Rooms will provide network integration of large room audio systems. This will ease incorporation with existing facilities as well as facilitate new installations.

I've installed Shure IntelliMix on Crestron UC and use Sennheiser ceiling tile microphones through Dante Controller with 16 microphone channels. No other devices needed and working perfect.
Wayne Mooney commented
I'd like to have a mix of Teams with Shure Intellimix DSP software to remove the need for a dedicated box to deal with Dante to PC. Even in larger room installations clients are trying to design wall mount solutions so removing the rack mount gear is advantageous.
Harald Steindl commented
As neat as Dante-as-a-service integration might be, this is currently no big thing IMHO.
Bigger setups for sure do need an external DSP for per-mic-AEC. Pretty much every decent AudioDSP comes with USB Audio these days. So no problem hooking it up as an external audio device.

If Microsoft want to be a vendor for the very complex conference audio systems I design, then Dante/AES 67 audio network capabilities are an absolute must.
Steve Roth commented
come into the 21st century Microsoft! Dante is here and now
Nick Salis commented
Agree, Dante/AES67 has established itself as de facto standard in professional audio systems.
Michael Fay commented
I agree. Cameron G. and Edward O. make excellent points.
I think Dante will be the ubiquitous standard for the foreseeable future.
Cameron Grainger commented
I completely agree! I guess the issue does come down to "which transport scheme are you going to use." There is Dante, AES67, AVB, and a host of others (AES-EBU, MADI, etc.)
So far, we are trying to focus primarily on Dante/AES67.
Dan Lynch commented
That would make integration much simpler for both retro-fits and new construction.
Edward O,Connor commented
Fully agreed, if Microsoft wants to be a viable vendor in this market DANTE is a must.

The Dante AVIO USB Adapter lets you connect any computer to a Dante audio network with zero software installation, and can be used with any audio application for playout or recording.
Joe Nickell commented
Zoom has incorporated this ability.
