The P.A People Extends Sydney's Network Capabilities With Lawo V_Remote4

News Image
Sydney's The P.A. People has worked alongside Barret Evolution and expanded their networks to include HD-SDI video and MADI over IP in support of the Australia Day celebrations taking place at Sydney Harbour.

HD-SDI and MADI audio transport was provided using four Lawo V_remote IP video processors and an extensive 10G Brocade IP network to distribute pictures and audio between Event Vision control, the Broadcast facility at the Sydney Opera House, and the many cameras and LED screens around Circular Quay.

The P.A. People utilized Lawo's V_remote4 IP-based interfaces to transport broadcast video cameras and LED screen feeds in real time over a 10G network.

Singers on a floating barge 120m from the shore performed to music generated by an on-stage orchestra, and then pictures were relayed back to the shore for broadcast. The only link to the barge was a fiber cable which carried the video and audio signals between the broadcast van near the Sydney Opera House, the IMAG switching location and the barge.

The Lawo product was connected to a temporary 10G network backbone based on The P.A. People inventory of Ruckus (formerly Brocade) network switches, dedicated single and multimode fiber and a number of wireless links.

"The network and the Lawo product performed flawlessly" commented Paul Barrett, principal of Barrett Evolution and Technical Director for the project. "Being IP based, the system provided by The P.A. People was able to allow creative freedom that would not have been possible with any other system. Both the Broadcast and the IMAG directors were very pleased with the result."

Chris Dodds, Managing Director of The P.A. People, said: "We have a long term and unique relationship with a number of our key suppliers including ClearCom and Motorola. We are excited to add Lawo to our roster of trusted suppliers and to be able to extend our commitment to IP as the transport of choice for all our Communications Systems with the V_remote4 product."
