Taking Steps in the right direction U SIS LIVE boosts broadcast solutions K distributor Aspen Media has supplied Wigwam Hire, specialists in sound systems and equipment for touring, with DirectOut MADI products for its customer AudioTech Services and the sell-out reunion tour of 90s pop band, Steps. Behind the scenes, the backing tracks for Steps are supported by audio playback using for resilience two playback systems running in sync, which could prove to be a Tragedy if the primary system fails or locks up. Connections from the playback system to the front of house mixing system are provided by 64 channel MADI and a DirectOut ANDIAMO MADI to analogue converter. Running two systems requires a method of switching to the backup replay should something tragic happen. As standard silence or loss of connection detectors were considered inadequate for this task, DirectOut took a step in the right direction with an answer to the problem it had been considering for some time, EXBOX.BLDS (buffer loop detection system). www.aspen-madi.com V inten® have announced that one of the largest outside broadcasters in the UK, SIS LIVE, has taken delivery of a significant order to enhance the company’s extensive range of equipment.
