VRT uses NetMix Pro to search for sound effects for rapid edits

Creative Network Design (CND), a leading sound and audio software developer, has announced that VRT (Vlaamse Radio-en Televisieomroep), one of the leading radio and television broadcast facilities in Belgium, has selected NetMiix Pro to optimise the broadcaster’s workflow for searching and auditioning sound effects.
The NetMix Pro solution is used across the VRT network, on both PC and Macintosh workstations.
VRT implemented NetMix Pro in January, 2005 across a six Digidesign Pro Tools HD workstation environment. All of VRT’s sound effects assets are stored on a server, which is built on Macintosh XServe G5 with a JetStore RAID system of 6.4 terabytes (TB). The facility also has a network of Avid and Unity workstation clients that currently number eleven, with further installations in the near future.
With nearly continuous use of VRT’s Avid and Unity systems, and tremendous demand for the broadcaster’s network resources, NetMix Pro enables editors and producers to quickly search, audition, and capture sounds from the network server without straining the overall bandwidth of the system.
NetMix Pro works on both Mac and PC environments and enables audio editors, using any system, to search, audition, transfer and manage audio assets with unprecedented ease. NetMix Pro 3.3, recently introduced at NAB 2005, enables spot-to-timeline features for Digidesign ProTools® 6.9 XP users.
NetMix Pro can be purchased directly from the Creative Network Design Web site at
