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.

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 they prefer. www.glensound.co.uk Driving World Cup audio 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. www.calrec.com TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 92 AUGUST 2014 | 07 TV-BAY092AUG14.indd 7 08/08/2014 15:23
