Explore Vegas' Past at the Neon Museum

Posted by Tom Vernon on Apr 19, 2017 11:15:00 AM

When you think about night life in Las Vegas, particularly during the Rat Pack era, one of the first things that usually comes to mind is those amazing neon signs. They were everywhere, and can still be recalled on popular films of the time such as “The Godfather,” the 1960 “Ocean’s 11,” and the James Bond movie, “Diamonds are Forever.” While neon signage had been a staple of downtown streetscapes in America since the late 1920s, it was always different in Vegas. In a city where over the top is the norm, the signs were not only bigger, but their design and display had been elevated to an art form.

NAB 2017: Surviving the Show

Posted by Tom Vernon on Apr 19, 2017 11:15:00 AM

I've been attending NAB for the past ten years, and off and on before that. It seems like a long time until I talk with people who haven't missed a show in 40 years or more. It’s a big week, and it’s beneficial to prepare ahead. So I’ve devised a plan for surviving NAB with most of my sanity intact, one that I tweak and refine every year when I get home. Of course, the show changes over time as well, so it's a bit like trying to hit a moving target. If this is your first show, then some of the things I've learned the hard way may be beneficial for you at NAB 2017.

Omnia at 20: Innovate. Disrupt. Repeat.

Posted by Tom Vernon on Apr 11, 2017 4:42:05 PM

“Nothing changes but the changes.” That expression is a good summary of the first 20 years of Omnia Audio. Rather than the linear evolution of a single product line, the history of Omnia is more about bringing new concepts, leading tech, and fresh ideas to the party. Hence, our current slogan – Innovate. Disrupt. Repeat.

The story of Omnia begins in two places at about the same time, one being New York City; the other, Cleveland, Ohio. The year was 1985.

Is Your Equipment Fully AES67 Compliant?

Posted by Marty Sacks on Apr 11, 2017 4:41:00 PM

AES67 compatibility and compliance are not one in the same. This short guide explains the difference, and why you should care.

One of our goals at the Telos Alliance is to further the adoption of AES67, the standard for audio-over-IP designed to allow interoperability between various IP-based audio networking systems, like our own Livewire+ AES67, Ravenna, Q-Lan, and Dante. So we hear the terms AES67 compliance and AES67 compatibility thrown about a bit, often with reckless abandon. And while they may sound the same, the difference between compliance and compatibility is huge. Here, we’ll spell out those differences and explain why it matters.

Choosing an AoIP format for a Broadcast Production Facility with AES67

Posted by Martin Dyster on Apr 11, 2017 4:20:00 PM

When talking about Audio-over-IP it is important to stress that we are not discussing something new. In fact, Audio over IP has been a part of the radio broadcast landscape for well over a decade. It was pioneered by the team at US-based Telos, led by the late Steve Church. Called “Livewire,” this AoIP protocol debuted at NAB in 2003. Since the introduction of that first low-latency, contribution-quality format, many other protocols have followed.  However, the sheer amount of choice and conflicting marketing messages associated with each new protocol can be extremely confusing to potential adopters. The true benefits of an IP-based audio system are easily compromised by an inability to choose ‘best-of-breed’ equipment simply because ‘device A’ doesn’t support the protocol adopted by ’device B.’
