Re: SamCast and NextGen communicating MetaData

NexGen can write a file (TXT orXML) which can be overwritten or appended each time the metadata changes. I assume samcast can be set to read that file, but have not worked with it. we use securenetsystems DCS, and it reads the xml file from NexGen via a shared folder.

Re: Offical AMC 8 Transition Thread (was Sat. AMC-8)

Why I replaced my Comtech--our LNB mount is also split where the set screw runs. We glued it, so it is stable at the moment, but no sense in fighting this on a 35 year old dish. I understand there is a replacement available--for $1K. so that plastic bit IS factory? Iv'e only ever seen aluminum ones...

Re: Offical AMC 8 Transition Thread (was Sat. AMC-8)

Working on a combiner project last week I noticed the owner of the other station had a big ol comtech behind the studio, and asked if he had made the move yet, which was a no. Since I had my spec-an and some spare time I offered to help. Well, I pulled the van up behind the dish and this seemed to b...

Re: Offical AMC 8 Transition Thread (was Sat. AMC-8)

These frigging things can may you question your self worth... And then it pops on and you wonder what was so hard about that. So I went back to that 9' dish on Friday, armed with a better spec-an. didn;t find an easy way to power the lnb at first so i tried the avcom again, for about 45 minutes. I ...

Re: Wheatnet vs AXIA

I will be upgrading my current employers Logitek AE-32 to TWO Jet-Stram Mini's and a adding a ROC-12 console, moving our old Remora from the main studio to prod duty and the ops manager gets to keep his remora. then we'll begin adding ...

Re: Offical AMC 8 Transition Thread (was Sat. AMC-8)

So I have now tried unsuccessfully to do two different dishes, and failed. Neither of them are mine (I work for a non-comm all our stuff is on SES-2), but I try to help people out when I can. This was the first: 20170419_181825.jpg No Idea of the make, its about 9' (3m). I warned them it may not wor...

Re: Wheatnet vs AXIA

I actually have a rednet setup at home in my recording studio. Latency would not be an issue, with the rednet PCIe card I can get 3ms round trip into/out of my DAW, and Dante network latency is 150 MICROseconds IIRC. And I believe Dante is used by some manufacturers of Broadcast equipment, AEQ capit...

Re: Rivendell Radio Automaiton

FWIW I ran a station on the air with RD for 2 years (station went under due to poor management). It was absolutely rock solid. I ran it on OLD (even at the time) Dell poweredge servers, with a Primary and backup server, a primary and backup on-air, and a prod machine. Initially using a single M-Audi...

Enjoy!

Re: Wheatnet vs AXIA

SAS and Lawo also support AOIP but with a different architecture. Yes I'll add SAS and LAWO to the list. Logitek will also do AOIP (I have a fair amount of experience with thier TDM system) Remember, AES 67 supports audio exchange but not necessarily control. Which is a strong argument for picking ...

Re: Broadcast Technology Company?

I found the Manual over at the shop. It's not in great shape but I'll scan it and post it up somewhere for you. Might take a couple days, I don't think it's in good enough shape to put through the autofeeder so I'll have to scan each page manually.
