    Last week, for the fifth consecutive year, the NFL (National Football League) held a football game in London, and once again Britannia Row Productions provided live audio for the event to the 86,000 crowd inside Wembley Stadium, utilizing Audinate Dante technology distributed audio to the sound reinforcement system. An event of this magnitude incorporates large amounts of media, ranging from the pre-game show to video feeds, replays, referee microphones, PA announcements, and live satellite linkups to other games in the… View this post

    The new DiGiCo MINI and NANO racks offer a wide range of input and output options for any DiGiCo SD audio system. Multiple DiGiCo mixing consoles can be positioned in an Optocore 2G optical loop, ideally suited to complex live or broadcast productions where multiple consoles need to share and sub-mix I/O. An example of how this can work in the real world is a scenario of front of house, monitors and a live broadcast feed. Where the MINI and… View this post

    The professional audio industry in 2011 has been abuzz yet again with a recurring theme that I like to refer to as the “can’t we all just get along?” conversation. As in years past, the topic of unifying standards between different manufacturers’ equipment to make exchange of information easier and more seamless was everywhere. This has been going on for some time, and has lived under different names and terms: “interconnectivity,” “convergence,” and the most recent model, “interoperability.” However, this… View this post

    Ready, brace yourself, this one is going to hurt: Computers are not made for audio. There, I finally said it! Computers are made for crunching numbers, and they also happen to be able to manage audio and video tasks really well because of their tremendous processing power. However, when it comes to best audio quality practices, they’re sometimes not ideal. Often we use computers to feed tracks to PA systems and as playback machines for things such as backing tracks.… View this post

    Gepco International has introduced CTS2504HDX, a 2-channel snake consists of two elements of Gepco’s CT504HDX heavy-duty tactical Cat 5e cable under a rugged TPE jacket. It is a solution for applications that require multiple or redundant channels of Cat-5e cables in remote production or staging applications. Typically, the electrical performance and bandwidth of conventional Cat 5 cable is degraded through physical damage when used in portable applications, with the unique double-jacket construction of the CT504HD series designed to eliminate this… View this post

    With the increasing trend toward the use of fiber instead of co-ax cable in a wide range of applications, most contractors are now required to understand the basics of terminating and laying fiber optic cable. Contrary to its reputation, fiber is actually quite easy to handle and use. Cable Construction Fiber, at its most basic level, is a very pure strand of glass through which light can pass over great distances. All fiber optic cable has at its center a… View this post

    This article is provided by Church Audio Video.   There can be confusion when it comes to the 1/4-inch connector. Guitar players and sound engineers are each seeking a certain type, but often have or are given the other. Let’s explore the simple 1/4-inch connector that has come to complicate our world. We can start with how it is known: audio jack, phone jack, phone plug, jack plug. Specific types and variations include the stereo or mono plug, mini-jack, mini-stereo,… View this post

    Gepco International has introduced RunONE powered loudspeaker cables, which combine audio and power, along with optional data, under one durable yet flexible jacket. Each RunONE cable combines one channel of power with two, eight or 12 channels of 110-Ohm balanced audio for line level, mic level or digital AES audio signals and can be used with self-powered loudspeakers or in DMX lighting control. Additional configurations include two channels of Category 5e cable that can be used for data drops in… View this post
