About the new MPA1-MIX-Net-V-R
Designed to ease the transition towards IP media transport, the MPA1-MIX-NET-V-R is ideal for ST 2110 trucks and installations. Two 1G AoIP connections provide 64 channels of input, with a further 64 available via an optional MADI SFP. Support for in-band NMOS is built-in for integration with TSL control and leading third-party systems.
User interfaces are critical in high-pressure production environments, so the MPA1-MIX-NET’s design is informed by users like global production experts NEP. Additionally, SNMP integration allows remote configuration changes.
Key Feature/Benefit Highlights:
- 64 channels and an optional MADI input provide a further 64 channels, with an intuitive interface and easy-to-use controls.
- A simple and intuitive way to monitor multiple audio sources by using it's 8 dedicated rotary controls to quickly configure and create the required monitoring mix
- Provides full integration with today's Broadcast IP networks allowing operators to easily access any audio sources for monitoring.
- Comes complete with a comprehensive webpage and SNMP support, allowing remote configuration and control.
TSL partner, NEP, a leading worldwide outsourced technical production partner to premier content producers of live sports and entertainment, states why the ergonomic user experience and sound quality are critical in high-pressure production environments. “MPA1-MIX-NET’s design is informed by end-users in conjunction with global production experts NEP. One example is the “V”-shaped layout of the front panel controls which provide intuitive navigation that’s especially valuable fast paced environments like live production in an OB truck or PCR. The built-in ST 2022-7 network capability is another step forward. Additionally, NEP and TSL integration allows for remote configuration via our broadcast control system,” says Joseph Signorino, Vice President, Systems Integration & Design, NEP Broadcast Services.
