In terms of the sound systems installed in auditoriums, it is difficult to design comprehensive networking systems, because of limitations in available channels, latency and cost. However, with rapid progress of networking devices, Digital Audio Networks will become more valuable also in the field of performing arts after several years. This report will discusses required functions of network audio systems for auditoriums from the system-design viewpoint by picking a 2300-seat multipurpose hall as an example. Comparing the system against networking technologies that are suggested today, the report will also discuss the feasibility of the example and point out problems in realizing such systems.
