Setup interoperability between BTI and Dante devices


AES67 interoperability settings are required for every Dante device that should receive a AES67 stream

To enable your Dante devices to receive an AES67 stream, AES67 interoperability must be enabled. This is done by using Audinate’s Dante Controller, which can be obtained from the Audinate website or any other manufacturer specific software tool.

In Dante controller all your Dante devices that are connected to the network will show up automatically.

  1. Start the Dante Controller Software and wait for it to be synchronized with the network
  2. Select the “device info” tab in the software
  3. Double click on the DSP you would like to configure for AES67, a new window will open
  4. Select the “AES67 config” tab
  5. Enable AES67 mode and make a note of the Tx multicast prefix. You will need this number later, even if you are not using the DSP as a transmitter. This must be the same for all DSP’s that are ready for AES67.
  6. Reboot the Dante device
  7. This needs to be done with every Dante device that will receive an AES67 stream

Subsections of Configuration

Control Network Setup

Control Network Address Setup

The setup of the control network of the BTI will be done via it’s Web UI. It is self-explaining


By default the interface is set to DHCP

Please make sure your computer network address is in the same network range to access the setup pages


Default web UI username and password

Refer to the MAC address if multiple MCP’s are in the network to identify the right unit. The MAC address is also printed on each units bottom cover as QR Code.


To reset the control network address use the USR IOT tool

The tool does allow you to search and reset the network settings

AES67 Network Setup

To configure the AES67 download latest generation Audio Grid Controller Software. Your PC needs to be connected to the AES67 network and have its addressing set in the same IP range.


AES67 Network Address Setup

Start the software and go to the “Device Config” tab

  1. Select the device to be configured
  2. Enter “IP Address” and “Subnet Mask”
  3. Hit “Apply”

AES67 Stream Address Setup


The AES67 stream of each device needs to be configured to be received by the Dante/AES67 devices

Start the software and go to the “Device Config” tab

  1. Select the device to be configured
  2. Select “Create / Delete” in the “Multicst flow” selection

  1. In the Multicast flow config, click on “AG” first and then on “AES67”. Next, select the “Manual IP and Port” option.
  2. You can set your desired multicast IP. Typically in combination with Dante Audio products, the multicast IP starts with “239.69.”, port 5004.
  3. Select the channels that should be multicast.
  4. Click on “Create”.

Audio Routing using Audinate’s Dante Controller

Natively the audio routing can be done by using Audinate’s Dante Controller in case if its not auto configured by the DSP’s management software. In Dante Controller all your Dante and AES67 devices that are connected to the network will show up automatically.

The BTI will be shown at the ‘‘Dante Transmitters’’ part, using its multicast address@hostname-HH-HH-HH where ‘‘HH-HH-HH’’ are the last three bytes of the devices MAC address.

Channel assignment

  • Make the audio connections in the Dante controller
