NEWS MANIPULATE & EDIT Digital consoles Sales of Calrec Audio’s Summa sound console have passed the 20 mark following a deal with SuperSport Outside Broadcast in South Africa. Since July, Calrec has sold desks into the US, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Turkey, Italy, South Africa, South Korea, and Kuwait. The most recent deal saw two Summa consoles replace existing audio desks in SuperSport’s OB-7 and OB-8 units. Johan van Tonder, technical operations manager at SuperSport, said: “We trust our entire fl eet of large trucks to Calrec, and now that the Summa desk is available, we can take advantage of the Calrec benefi ts in our small OB vans as well.” Routing Post and VFX house Smoke & Mirrors has installed Imagine Communications’ Platinum IP3 as part of its move to a larger facility in London. Supplied by UK distributor Thameside TV, the routing and signal distribution technology is in a 225 x 288, 3 Gb/s-ready full redundant confi guration that can be expanded. “We have a lot of experience with Imagine Communications’ networking infrastructure and primarily chose the Platinum IP3 router for its ability to handle frame synchronisation, mux and demux, as well as path to the IP future,” said George Cook, head of engineering at Smoke & Mirrors. “The Platinum IP3 gives us all the security we can wish for, particularly with its built-in redundancy and the ability to hot-swap components for maintenance and expansion. It is something we can rely on now and build on as our future requirements develop.” 16 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 96 DECEMBER 2014
