Cinenet’s Optical Network connects Dr D

Posted in: news on: Thursday, April 2nd, 2009.

Cinenet today released its expanded Optical Network in the Sydney metro area.  The expansion comes off the back of the addition of Dr D Studios (Dr D); the joint venture between Kennedy Miller Mitchell (KMM) and Omnilab Media Group (OMG) to build a cutting edge animation and visual effects facility.

Dr D’s first project is the sequel to the hit animated film Happy Feet, due in cinemas in 2011.

Dr D is using Cinenet’s Optical Network to connect the offices of its joint venture partners using gigabit and 10 gigabit ethernet, bringing together the artists at KMM’s Historic Metro Theatre in Kings Cross with the high availability server and render facility at OMG’s Yurong Street site.

Connectivity is supplied as DWDM wavelengths over Cinenet’s backbone network, providing secure connectivity between the sites.  Additionally the facilities can be linked  to other sites on the optical network including datacentres Globalswitch in and Equinix along with Fox Studios Australia‘s Moore Park studio complex.

The Optical Network network can transport a range of protocols including gigabit and 10 gigabit ethernet, uncompressed HD-SDI and 3G-HDSDI, SDH and FDDI.    Cinenet is progressively deploying the Optical Network at all its fibre connected sites.
