Re: VOIP lines w/ Tele Interface

Precisely.

Though the fact that the PHY on your internet uplink (ISDN) is 4W is pretty much a red herring in this conversation; if it were single-pair VHDSL, it would still be 4W from the viewpoint of the internet connection.

Re: VOIP lines w/ Tele Interface

Not to put too fine a point on it, but remember: a VoIP call coming to you *is already 4-wire*, by the nature of VoIP. Why would you want to *combine the channels* only to have to take them apart again? That's what hybrids do: they combine or separate between 4w and 2w telephone circuits: they are a...

Re: Live Motion Graphics

More to the point, if you use a chroma- or luminance self-key off the signal, you can't do variable transparency in your shadows and the like; you can only do that with a separate key-signal channel, which I am pretty sure (without looking again) that Caspar knows how to do.

Re: Basic Graphic software for Matrox Digisuite LX

I want to say that I think that the Inscriber machine I had in a community access television studio had digisuite cards in it.

If not, I know somebody who did have some in the machine. Specifically what do you want to use them for?

Re: Solid state drives

One other tip.

I have been told that the controllers on current-generation SSDs will take advantage of unpartitioned space on the drive to reduce rewrites and increase lifetime, so when you're partitioning, don't let your operating system do the job: do it yourself and leave 10 or 20 extra gig free.

Re: Using STL dish to share Lan link connection

My inclination would be to say that you want some device between the radios and the transmitter that is going to do an audio sanity check on the signal going through, whether that's your Orban or some other device. If your DA converter itself will not produce insane audio, then more power to it.

Yup: here it is:

Link up top.

I've read this manual, and it goes into some scary details, so if you've been thrown in the deep end the odds are it will be helpful to you.

Re: How to work with DSNG?

There is a several hundred page manual as a PDF that explains how to do SNG & DSNG operations that I ran across a couple of years ago when I was working at a network. Let me see if I can find the link to it.

Re: Benefits of going IP

I'm going to be an opinionated bastard for a moment here. If you're running AoIP, and you *aren't* running it on separated physical network switches, in different colored cable, with nothing else connected to them, you deserve what you get. And you *will* get it. I encourage my competition to behave...

Re: Advice on point to point dark fiber connection

Not to derail, but are any of you audio over network people using MPLS connections instead of bare Internet IP?

Or is that also too pricey for the application?
