Artel’s Quarra Switches Support SLG’s Install of IP-Native Lawo Diamond Radio Consoles for CH Media Group
Artel Video Systems, a world-class provider of innovative, real-time multimedia delivery solutions, today announced that Swiss systems integrator SLG has installed Artel Quarra PTP Ethernet switches to support seven Lawo IP-native diamond radio consoles installed in control and production rooms at CH Media Group. The Quarra switches facilitate an audio-over-IP workflow for this industry-first deployment of the brand-new Lawo consoles.8
“This was a large-scale implementation of media-over-IP, and we chose to work with Artel because we trust both the company and its Quarra switches,” said Francesco Mattuzzi, Project Manager at SLG Broadcast. “The install was straightforward, as we anticipated, and our customer was very pleased with how smoothly we were able to complete the project.”
“We knew going into the project that Quarra has enabled many successful migrations to IP,” added Steve Handke, Head of Technology TV & Radio at CH Media. “Given this track record, we were confident following SLG’s recommendation of the Quarra along with our new Lawo consoles.”
The IP-native diamond radio console is based on the open AES67/RAVENNA audio-over-IP network standards and complies with SMPTE ST 2110-30/-31 and ST2022-7 standards. Artel’s Quarra PTP Ethernet switch accommodates all of these standards, provides leading-edge PTP switch technology, and supports the CH Media Group’s implementation of the Lawo consoles by providing the breadth of essential features and functionality.
“SLG is a leading systems integrator specializing in IP migrations, and we’re proud to be trusted by the company — and innovative end users including CH Media Group — for these types of mission-critical implementations,” said Paul Seiden, Director of Sales at Artel.
