Leading visitor experiences company Merlin Entertainments has revealed that it is making extensive use of Audinate’s Dante audio networking technology at a variety of its London attractions.

The Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee covers nearly 190,000 square feet of exhibit space, plus an adjoining 37,500 square foot ballroom. Host to all types of events, from high-profile auto and trade shows to corporate meetings and weddings, the Wisconsin Center has taken pride in providing the latest in teleconferencing, digital signage, data transmission, and audio/visual technology. To stay up to date, the Wisconsin Center decided to upgrade the professional audio capabilities that it had relied on since it opened. The biggest challenge was time: with virtually constant corporate events, trade shows, conventions and special occasions, closing its doors for any period of time isn’t something the Wisconsin Center can do without hurting the bottom line.

Pope Francis's final Mexican appearances included the Jose Morelos Pavon Stadium and the Estadio Venustiano Carranza, a soccer stadium, in Morelia along with a park, Parque Publico Federal El Chamizal, and a small adjoining soccer park in Juarez just north of the U.S. border. Audio company 3G Productions was contracted to supply high quality audio over exceptionally long distances, while under massive time contstraints to deliver. A vast and sophisticated Dante fiber network was the natural solution.

LP Field in Nashville is the home stadium for NFL’s Tennessee Titans. The 69,798 seat stadium is also host to Tennessee State University Tigers, the annual Music City Bowl college football game, and is a multi-purpose venue booked for large concerts and entertainment events.

Vicarage Road, a stadium in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, was originally built in 1922 and is the home of the Watford football club. The stadium has a capacity of 17,477, which includes four different stands. Watford undertook the task of updating an aging and unreliable PA system that has the ability to make announcements during game play and comply with all relevant standards and legislation relating to mass-notification and voice alarm in sports venues.

London's Wembley Stadium is designed for soccer matches, and thus contains a much smaller audio and video system than is required for an American NFL Football experience. In order to bring the full multi-media experience of American NFL Football to the UK, a custum-designed system was required to accomodate the greater use of music and a larger number of television cameras, lighting, pyrotechnics and radio communications channels.
