Sound Broadcasting 1

The new sound broadcasting system of the Institute For Music And Media is housed in a 7.5-tonne Iveco truck. It offers adequate space for a sound technician, a sound engineer and a sound mixer, and can be used both for live recording and for surround-sound mix editing. IMM students can use the van for organising productions outside the university premises, and for producing music mixes.

Six RME Micstasys provide 48 microphone channels as standard via fibreoptic MADI connection in the van, which within the van are likewise routed via MADI cables to the Yamaha DM2000 mixing console and the two recording systems, a VB-Audio MT128 and a Magix Sequoia. Sixteen additional analogue cables offer the option of extending to 64 input channels. A Geithain 5.1 speaker system is available, consisting of three RL906, two RL904 and one Basis1 subwoofer.
In the rear of the van is a patch-bay by means of which further digital and analogue audio and video signals can be recorded. This ensures comfortable cooperation with the mobile camera direction equipment of the university, for recordings with multiple cameras. The existing network connection of the vehicle can furthermore be used to stream live to the internet.
