Audinate has announced that its Dante audio networking solution was used during the world premiere of the new Star Trek movie at the Sydney Opera House. The 150 million dollar Paramount Pictures film debuted with the stars in attendance last month at the red carpet event. For the event Audinate collaborated with Dolby and D&B Audiotechnik. The Sydney Opera House was transformed using Dante to transport digital audio from the media servers to more than eighty speakers across the concert hall. More than 1500 people attended the event. Surround sound from the digital cinema projectors was transported via Dante through a complex network of Cisco switches and amps. The audio network reached all areas of the concert hall using fiber and CAT5 cabling audio equipment from D&B Audiotechnik over 30 amplifiers Barco projectors and high-def 2048x1080 CinemaScope screen. All of this was tied together with Audinate's Dante for networking using IP over Ethernet technology and Dolby Lake processors for processing. In addition Dante simplified the installation and network setup by automatically discovering devices on the network and enabling automatic system configuration. It was thrilling to have Audinate's solution used at such a prestigious movie premier. This advanced cinema set-up was a first for the Sydney Opera House and it highlighted Dante's superior performance over traditional analog systems says Lee Ellison CEO Audinate. Audinate
