The network audio feature allows you to use Dante-enabled microphones in a situation where the microphone is reachable by the Zoom Rooms on the network.
This article covers:
Review the following, as necessary:
Make sure the Zoom Rooms are on the same wired network (no wi-fi) as the Dante devices. Consider isolating your AV network with a local network switch and a USB-to-ethernet converter to allow the Zoom Rooms to be on both local and building networks. If an isolated AV network is not possible, consider setting up VLANs or Dante Domain Manager as needed to allow or restrict network access to your microphones.
Zoom Rooms for Windows and macOS will be the software-based Dante connection point, so you don't need to add a third-party Dante hardware in-between the microphone, switch, and the computer for the Dante input.
The customer is always responsible for the security of the network when using this feature.
Note: Take every precaution possible, as we do not have built-in encryption between Shure devices and Zoom Rooms devices. For full encrypted audio designs with networked audio, see:
The last Dante audio channel is used from the Dante microphone. For example, if the microphone has 2 outputs, the second output is used.
