SYDNEY — Audinate, Inc.’s 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 recently at a red carpet event.

For the event, Audinate collaborated with Dolby and D&B Audiotechnik to transform the Sydney Opera House using Dante to transport digital audio from the media servers to over 80 speakers across the concert hall. Over 1,500 people experienced Dolby Digital 5.1 surround through the full showing of the movie.  

Surround sound from the digital cinema projectors was transported via Dante through a network of Cisco switches and amps using fiber and CAT5 cabling, audio equipment from D&B Audiotechnik, over 30 amplifiers, Barco projectors and high-def 2048×1080 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,” said Lee Ellison, CEO, Audinate.
