NEWS > Global TV 'gear-up' with DirectOut
Sydney, December 2013 – Professional Audio Technology announced today the supply of the largest DirectOut Technology system ever purchased in Australia by Global Television. The new system was delivered to Global’s facility in Mascot and is being prepared for a large international event early next year.
Global’s Technical Services Director Marc Segar explained “We decided to go with Direct Out for our audio distribution on Big Brother in 2012 and were on-air 24/7 for 3 months without a single issue. Based on our experience we designed HD 9’s audio area around various Direct Out processing units and this has now extended to larger projects. Value for money, flexibility and build quality are really important when we are looking for solutions and equipment needs to be adaptable for a variety of different projects during our busy schedule”.
The delivery consisted of more than 20 M1k2 MADI routers and more than 25 ANDIAMO.XT SRC’s, which use DirectOut analog and AES breakout panels to connect comms and other broadcast equipment to the fiber infrastructure of the overall system. Global TV also chose DirectOut EXBOX.64’s as MADI format converters.
DirectOut Technology’s CTO Stephan Flock commented, “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to supply Global TV with such a large system, which will be used on various international and local applications and will be added to an already impressive list of projects and installations for DirectOut internationally and in Australia.”
