Yesterday, I wrote about NewTek shipping TalkShow — a professional implementation of Skype video calling that allows broadcasters to integrate those calls into their programs without suffering through the drawbacks that can accompany the consumer version of Skype.
Today, the focus shifts to the audio capabilities of the newly shipping product.
Audinate, the company that developed Dante media networking, announced last week that TalkShow is using Dante Virtual Soundcard software for routing digital audio from Skype to other Dante-enabled pieces in the production chain.
According to the company’s press release announcing the bundle, NewTek will pre-install the Dante Virtual Soundcard software on every TalkShow.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog post on TalkShow, there are two other products — one from Quicklink and the other from Riedel — that tackle Skype video for professional use as well.
Audinate also has announced a deal with Quicklink to integrate Dante IP audio into its product.
