The timeline of technology is dotted with a lengthy list of innovative people and companies whose contributions have helped to shape our modern world. Far shorter is the list of those whose creations have marked a fundamental shift — truly redefining the accepted paradigm.
The story of Audinate is the story of just such a game changer. In just a few short years, the company’s Dante technology has forever altered the face of professional audio, from installed systems to live sound to studio recording and beyond.
The seeds of the company were sown in Sydney, Australia, where a small team of engineers was designing new technologies for Motorola Research Labs. Motorola shuttered the facility in 2003, but a few members of the team stayed together, securing backing from the National Information and Communications Technology of Australia (NICTA), a government research institute whose goal is to spawn innovative technology to benefit the growth of industry in Australia.
