Video has become more and more a part of many live productions. To efficiently transport video and audio, signals can be multiplexed together, sent over fiber, and de-multiplexed at an end-point. Communicating quickly to camera spots via muxed signals can be vital to a successful production.
How It Works
The control room houses a FreeSpeak II base station and a BroaMan MUX-22. Audio and video is multiplexed by the MUX-22 transferred out via fiber to a second MUX-22 where the signal is de-multiplexed. This is a very common and reliable way production companies use video/audio transport. The FreeSpeak II system manages both analog communications and wireless communications. An LQ Series IP interface pulls audio from analog positions into the MUX-22 for transport with the muxed video signal.
