IP solutions play their part
G lensound have supplied around 10,000 ISDN units to broadcasters
around the world. Although ISDN is still the most reliable and
trusted option for audio links, it is in decline, as broadcasters look
towards IP and HD Voice mobile options. We are in a transitional period
however, as the post ISDN options do not offer the ease of use and
huge compatibility that the long established ISDN connections do.

www.akmmusic.co.uk As Glensound have been the established favourite in remote broadcast
units, or COOBEs (commentator operated outside broadcasting
equipment), it has been expected for many years that they would
produce an IP COOBE. Glensound have resisted, citing lack of reliable
compatibility between manufacturers and no means of simple set up in
the IP world, as the key reasons. However,
Glensound have now introduced
a range of products that
are simple to use, and are
flexible, for broadcasters to
use with whatever IP solution

T he BBC relied on Calrec Audio’s digital audio consoles during its
coverage of the FIFA World Cup beginning in June. The broadcaster
used a combination of three rented consoles to mix the audio in Brazil
for transmissions in the U.K.
At the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in Rio de Janeiro, two
24-fader Artemis Light consoles served as the first point of control in
the signal path, responsible for submixing all sound associated with the
matches and creating simultaneous 5.1
and stereo mixes. In addition, controlled
commentary and controlled effects were
passed on to all other users including
the edit suits in the IBC, the various
multiplatform control suites in the U.K.,
and the BBC’s studio broadcasting center
(SBC), also in Rio.
