APT’s WorldCast Meridian codec was used for an IP link between Broadcaster Fox Italy in Rome and a voice talent in Berlin.
Fox Italy launched an entertainment channel in Germany; it used the WorldCast Meridian IP audio codec to record the voice talent’s promo in Berlin while monitoring and coordinating from Rome.
Alessandro Travaglini is senior sound designer with Fox Italy. He told APT that the IP approach meant the company didn’t need a traditional ISDN solution that would have required a dedicated dual phone line.
The link includes two ProTools stations running the same audio/video session, delivered in advance via FTP; the audio workstation in Rome operates in Master mode and, using the Digidesign SYNC I/O Time Code Generator, controls the other in Berlin.
