In a Dante-enabled device, the hardware takes digital audio and 'packetizes' it. Basically, it segments theaudio and wraps it in IP (Internet Protocol) packets suitable for transmission across an Ethernet network.

Does Ethernet carry audio? In audio and broadcast engineering, Audio over Ethernet (sometimes AoE—not to be confused with ATA over Ethernet) is the use of an Ethernet-based network to distribute real-time digital audio. Because of the fidelity and latency constraints, AoE systems generally do not utilize audio data compression.

What do you mean by Ethernet? Ethernet is a way of connecting computers together in a local area network or-LAN. It has been the most widely used method of linking computers together in LANs since the 1990s. The basic idea of its design is that multiple computers have access to it and can send data at any time.

What is Dante Via? Dante Via is easy-to-use software that delivers unprecedented multi-channel routing of computer-based audio, allowing a wide range of applications and devices to be networked and interconnected, easily andinexpensively.
