Savings come from being able to use the best-in-class targeted device for the application, rather than being forced to develop a system solution based on a single manufacturer’s product offering. Savings also come from minimizing analog wiring infrastructure in favor of CAT5/6. We have found considerable cost savings using Dante for audio end points, especially when using logic I/O. The savings start with using CAT5/6, no costly audio snakes and termination costs, extra conductors for logic I/O and connecting all of the audio and logic I/O virtually in the design software. Not to mention the cost of drilling floor for snake wire, or using RF microphones because wiring to the table is impossible.
