Dante Ultimo

The Dante Ultimo chip is a highly cost-effective but feature-rich Dante solution for low channel-count applications. It extends Dante networking to endpoint products such as powered speakers, amplifiers, wall plates and break-out boxes.

Ultimo has a tiny footprint, but packs a solid punch, delivering up to 4x4 channels at 44.1 and 48 kHz, or 2x2 channels at 88.2 and 96 kHz. As with all Audinate products, Ultimo has been designed for quick and easy integration, and is supported by a comprehensive network-side API and a range of control interfaces. Ultimo enables Audinate customers to design and deliver leading-edge Dante products across the entire audio hardware landscape.

The accompanying Dante Ultimo PDK (Product Development Kit) is a fully-featured, standalone hardware development platform that enables you to familiarise yourself with Dante technology, and facilitates the process of designing and testing methods for integrating Dante Ultimo into your own products.
