Digital audio and flying lanterns


As the Lantern Festival overlapped with the new Chinese Lunar Year, Taipei held a special nine-day Year of the Pig Lantern Festival in Ximending. Each evening, lanterns were lit for the public to enjoy. A Dante network was employed for digital audio coding and transmission across the event site, making use of a Yamaha QL5 digital mixer, a RIO 1608-D I/O rack and UNiKA break-in/break-out boxes to stream multichannel audio across the network. The longest run of Ethernet cables was 80m.

The setup was deployed by Acoustic Audio Engineering Laboratory, whose team included Yuanzhou Guo, Kunqing Lai, Wave Yang, Zhiqiang Gao, Jiawei Chen and Qiang Lian. The show control system, combining audio, visual and lighting automation, was synchronised by an SMPTE generator and managed using a Mac. The lighting setup, meanwhile, was controlled by an MA Lighting grandMA2.
