I'd contest the "100% acoustically dead" claim though. That doesn't look anything like an anechoic chamber.

I've recently proposed a bunch of Dante equipment for my employer from Biamp and Shure. Nothing studio quality, just venue installed audio but still great quality. The main thing to look for nowadays is AES67 support as that there is some sort of interoperability. I know a lot of gear from Harman Group (Crown, BSS, JBL) used their own variant of audio of Ethernet that is now gaining AES67 support via firmware updates. That simplifies things greatly so there is no Dante-to-BLUlink conversion.

I've never visited a Dolby Cinema, but from all the reviews I've read on AVS Forums, it's about the best/most immersive theatrical exhibition experience available on the market today. The upcoming release of Blade Runner (The Final Cut) on UHD Blu-ray will probably push me over the edge and into 4K/UHD adoption at home later this year.

We just installed a Yamaha QL5 and some related Dante stuff in our video studios. Working well so far.

I already have bachelors and masters degrees in IT, and that's my day gig. I wasn't looking for a career track or even a certificate from Full Sail; just something to get me jump-started with some skills outside of the typical IT "stuff". I was figuring if it went well, I'd take some more classes on 3D art, drawing, character design, publishing, etcetera.
They could have made a lot of money off me!
But back then, Full Sail was only interested in students who would drop their entire lives to enter the curriculum and take their classes at all hours of the day and night, so they wouldn't even talk to me. Yeah, back then, there were people taking classes on third shift, because that's when they were offered. There was almost no way to even have a part-time job while going to school there. Hopefully that's all changed now.
I didn't know that Valencia had such a program, and I'm still interested in doing something like this. I may investigate that to see if night or weekend classes are available. Do you know if Valencia is affilliated with UCF like Seminole State College is?
