The first fireworks show with wireless audio for your headphones is a vision of the future

This year, Global 2000 International (which runs the show) turned to Cinewav to provide high-quality synchronized audio via mobile phones – and it's the first time this has ever been done an international fireworks festival...locals and tourists across Da Nang, Vietnam’s fifth most populated city, could listen to a clear soundtrack using their smartphone in perfect sync with the fireworks themselves.

Cinewav works with Qlab or Christie's Pandora's Box

Cinewav works perfectly with industry standard queue systems like QLab or Christie's pandora's box. Using TCP commands, you can trigger Cinewav to start, stop or replay in time with your lighting, projection or fireworks show. 

Cinewav can act as a server or client in this situation - all you need is to make sure the Cinewav player is on a laptop on your network.

In this image the central laptop is receiving Midi Timecode from the main controller. The laptop here has both QLab and Cinewav player on it and QLab is programmed to trigger Cinewav to PLAY at a specified time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will it use a lot of data?

No, the Cinewav app downloads an audio file to the phone. A typical audio file for a 2 hour movie is approx 30MB.

During a movie we use just 1MB per hour to keep you in sync!

Will it drain the phone's battery?

No, for pre-recorded audio like movies, because we are just playing a local audio file and we don't need your phone screen to be on we use hardly any battery. It's like playing an audio podcast. However, if you're using LIVE audio broadcast then it will be more like a phone call in terms of battery use.

Is there a distance limitation?

There is no distance limitation since we're not using FM or local broadcasting methods like bluetooth or Wifi. You can be anywhere in relation to the Cinewav player and as long as you have an internet connection (4G or even 3G) you can still play audio in sync. This is perfect for large scale shows like fireworks, drone shows, projection mapping.

Is there a limit to the number of listeners?

No, our platform can scale your listeners to literally millions. Of course we have to prepare for it if needed. We have tested it to 100,000 simultaneous connections at one exhibit. No one yet has needed more than this but please contact us if you'd like more!

How do I get started?

We can onboard your team in 30 mins and you can get started using Cinewav almost immediately. For larger scale projects do contact us so we can discuss your needs.
