Optocore Permanently Installed At The Opéra Bastille In Paris

Paris, France–The Opéra Bastille Paris was inaugurated in 1989 as part of the French Revolution Bicentenary celebrations. Its 2,700 acoustically consistent seats, unique stage facilities, integrated scenery, costume and accessory workshops, along with its numerous work areas and rehearsal rooms, make it one of the great modern perform-ance venues in France.

Equally as impressive as the inside and outside of the building are its high quality, state of the art theater and stage technologies, sophisticated lighting and audio systems. Al-ways a visionary in audio technology, the Opéra Bastille was the first to work with an analog console featuring remote total digital recall.

Now, they are one of the first operas to employ Optocore optical fiber networking. Dur-ing a recent technical overhaul, they integrated the most advanced digital audio stan-dard with Optocore and Yamaha as the basis of the system. Three PM1D consoles lo-cated in three of the opera‘s halls are now linked together using three Optocore YG2 and 21 YS2 cards along with two DD32E’s, two X6P-16 IN and two X6P-8/8 devices forming a redundant ring.

Opéra Bastille sound directors Philippe Taberlet and Serge Dupond wanted a system that could fulfill three main criteria: The Yamaha PM1D’s had to be linked up by a networking system capable of reading the Yamaha remote protocol; the system had to offer galvanic isolation between the different points of the ring, and it had to offer re-dundancy.

Primary contractor was Le Team from Nanterre, France, a company that specializes in audiovisual fiber optic solutions. Le Team project managers Marc Belleville and Frédéric Protot approached Optocore’s French distributor Philippe Moreau knowing that only the Optocore Networking System was capable of fulfilling all of these criteria.

All parties involved were quick to recognize and appreciate the Optocore ring network‘s integrated redundancy, high quality audio mic preamps and converters. Now the pres-entations at the Opéra Bastille provide an incredible audio and visual experience thanks to the advanced technologies offered by Optocore and Yamaha.
