D800-Dante Firmware

The D800-Dante A-Net Distributor has two types of firmware installed in it: Aviom firmware and Audinate Dante firmware.

Aviom Firmware

The Aviom firmware updates product features and is installed using the D800’s front-panel USB port along with a USB thumb drive. Any D800 or D800-Dante built after January 2015 already has the current Aviom firmware installed (v3.30) and will not require an update. The firmware files and installation instructions are here on the Aviom website:  http://www.aviom.com/AviomSupport/Software-Downloads.php 

Note that the Aviom firmware version number does not appear in any of the Dante info windows when using Dante Controller software.

Audinate Dante Firmware

Each Aviom product that uses the Dante protocol contains Dante circuit boards from Audinate in addition to the Aviom circuitry. Dante firmware is updated and supplied by Audinate, the creators of the Dante protocol. All Dante firmware updates require the Dante Firmware Update Manager software tool, which Aviom supplies to users in the Software Downloads section of our website. All Dante firmware updates are performed using a Mac/PC connected to the Primary Dante port of the Dante interface on the D800-Dante A-Net Distributor.


The most recent version of the Audinate Mac/PC software tools are here:  http://www.aviom.com/AviomSupport/Dante/Audinate_Dante_Software.zip
