Video: Omnia VOLT Audio Processing Brings "Clarity and Punch" to Livewire Ecosystem

By Justin Gelske on Aug 10, 2021 2:41:34 PM

In our recent Behind The Sound interview, we got a chance to speak with Tom Van Gorkom. Tom has been in his role as broadcast engineer for Radio Esperanza (Hope Radio) for the last 8 years. He was recently tasked with upgrading all the equipment. After reviewing options and talking to users, he chose Axia for their mixing consoles. He continued to remodel their studios, one at a time. Eventually, for their webplayer and phone app, they went with Z/IPStream R/1 so they could feed it with Livewire and have control over the audio routing to it.

More recently, their audio processors were randomly locking up at the transmitter sites, so they decided to try out Omnia VOLT. Tom was impressed with the interface, flexibility, and clarity. Tom then implemented Omnia MPX Nodes to clear up STL distortion and overshoots, which allowed them to install the VOLT at the studio. Sure enough, it worked well, allowing them to send the processed audio to two FM stations from one VOLT fed by Livewire. Hear all about Tom's projects and decision-making in this interview.

In our latest Behind The Sound interview, we got a chance to speak with Ludwig Kugler. Ludwig is part of a jazz band in Munich, Germany. After the start of the pandemic, his band was unable to practice together in person. Through some creative thinking, Ludwig was able to find a way to conduct band practice virtually, as well as stream his band's performances online with the help of some Telos Alliance offerings!

While the band took advantage of Jamulus software to play together from different locations, they needed another solution to help stream to their audience. Through Telos Alliance Z/IPStream 9X/2 stream encoder and processor, the band was able to stream directly to their audience over the internet. The 9X/2 handled all of the audio processing and the transfer to their Icecast server, where it is published. They were able to control all of this using the Axia Pathfinder Core PRO. Pathfinder was able to monitor everything coming in and out of the 9X/2, and it also helped them connect with their website to keep track of their audience!
