WaveCast Dante is based on the Audinate UXT Ultimo chipset

WaveCast Dante from Williams Sound is a Wi-Fi platform designed for pro-audio applications where high-quality sound is required for streaming audio in real-time to smartphones or tablets. The interface is based on the Audinate UXT Ultimo chipset which supports both AES67 and SMPTE 2110. Dante’s Ultimo UXT support of AES67 and SMPTE 2110 gives integrators various audio options to choose from for greater interoperability with other audio equipment in their system design. This allows the WaveCast Dante to be controlled by the Dante Controller, Dante’s software used for setting up and managing audio routing of Dante-enabled products on an audio network.

Professional audio inputs on the WaveCast Dante include ¼-inch/XLR, phantom power and a line-level output jack. In addition to multi-stage gain control inputs, the DSP features include AGC, limiters, high and low pass filter, and adjustable range compressor control. The 16-bit DAC provides a 48kHz sample rate for a smooth digital stream and minimises digital harshness. WaveCast Dante supports both unicast and multicast network configurations, while up to four WaveCast systems can be connected to the same Wi-Fi network to provide multiple listening channels, supporting 45 users in unicast mode or more than 1,500 users in multicast mode.

Continuing the theme of assistive listening, FM+ is described by Williams Sound as the first system able to broadcast both FM and Wi-Fi audio from a single source. The FM+ integrates WaveCast Wi-Fi audio server technology into a Williams Sound FM assistive listening system so that end-users can listen with either an FM receiver or with their own smartphone (via the WaveCast listening app). The FM+ is built on a professional DSP platform and comes with an optional Dante interface to provide integrators with a full audio networking solution. Venues no longer need to choose between providing FM or Wi-Fi assistive listening systems. The FM+ supports both the new iOS and Android WaveCast apps, in addition to all of the current and legacy Williams Sound FM receivers operating on the 72–76MHz bandwidth.
