Game Creek Video chooses TSL’s MPA1-MIX-DANTE for audio mixing in its remote broadcast kits
Game Creek Video, a provider of mobile production units, has announced that it relies on GCV Anywhere IP remote broadcast kits to produce sports. GCV Anywhere is a remote interface for OB trucks that allows production teams to produce and control live broadcasts while off-site. When the company was looking to build these kits, they decided to achieve reliable audio mixes with the MPA1-MIX-DANTE from TSL Products.
The MPA1-MIX-DANTE is designed for use at an outside broadcast or headend where fast audio QC of multiple sources is needed. TSL’s MPA1-MIX-DANTE enables the creation of a custom mix on the fly using the independent source gain encoders, from any combination of the 64 Dante/AES67 and 64 MADI sources available. This audio monitor features a source label and a monitor mix label display.
“TSL audio monitors are reliable and sound great. TSL offers both analog and digital connectivity options,” says James Piccirillo, Broadcast Network Systems Manager, Game Creek Video. “We love how we can monitor up to 128 audio channels if necessary, and it’s easy to use and interface with. All of the sources can be customized, making it a flexible and intuitive solution for anyone using it.”
The first GCV Anywhere kit was deployed for a major golf tournament in 2020. Since then, the company has created several more kits, which are used across both major national and regional sports broadcasts, and he believes it is something that will continue well into the future. “We predict remote broadcast solutions will continue to be utilized for future sports broadcast productions, while home productions remain as full onsite productions,” adds James Piccirillo.
All of TSL’s MPA1-MIX-DANTE user features are accessible via the web UI with a built-in web server designed to enable remote configuration and monitoring of networked units Source labels can be automatically read from the Dante network, or manually entered using the web UI. MPA1-MIX-DANTE also offers an internal full range loudspeaker system.
