In the 15 years since he founded FiLO Classical, recording engineer Dave Rowell has consistently garnered praise — and no small number of awards — for his artistic and technical skill in location recording and broadcasting classical music. Read how Rowell adopted a RAVENNA-based real-time AoIP solution including two Artel Quarra PTP- aware ethernet switches to keep everything perfectly synced.
Artel's documentation page has dozens of PDF files explaining how best to configure your equipment for your operations. Page through any guide, and you’ll learn exactly what to do to get you up and running. Simple and helpful screenshots allow you to get through setup quickly and successfully without necessarily understanding every switch feature so you’re pretty much good to go. But maybe you’re interested in the “why” as well as the “how”? This blog takes a closer look at three key features — IGMP snooping, QoS, and IEEE 1588 PTP — and why they are important in supporting a stable AES67 network.
From the moment Artel receives a PO or a request for delivery, the company’s operations team is hard at work doing all it takes to get the job done and do it right. Responsible for assembly, testing, packaging, and shipping, operations drives delivery of the products essential to customer success.
In the decade leading up to 2020, we saw a flurry of work on standards that would pave the way for the industry’s migration to IP. Though many of those standards, including SMPTE ST 2110, continue to be refined and optimized, it has been more than a year since we truly began to see implementation of IP.
Perhaps because it is an employee-owned company, or because it is committed to being a good citizen within the larger industry, Artel is dedicated to being responsive to customers’ requirements — and a contributor to their success, as well. This is why the engineering department at Artel is the company’s largest team, responsible for developing the features and functionality that address new and evolving market needs.

The industry has been talking about remote production for a while, and for good reason. The conventional live production model, in which you send a team and equipment to the venue, can be costly in terms of both time and money. Travel is expensive not only because you need to pay for transportation and lodging, but also because the human and technical resources are tied up all that time and unavailable for any other production. As a result, you’re limited in the frequency and number of events you can produce.
Cablenet operates a next-gen hybrid fiber-coaxial network that supports broadband and HDTV services. In a project designed to augment this network, Cablenet sought to link to stadiums across Cyprus to two remote production sites to bring content to the network hub and on to the headend. They wanted to introduce Media over IP into the network, position themselves to use SMPTE ST2022-7 redundancy as an option in the future, and avoid the cost of Satellite links in spans where Wave Division Multiplexing didn’t meet the loss budget.
When completed in 2019 by Swiss broadcasters RadioFr and La Télé, the 3,000-square-meter MEDIAparc facility just outside Fribourg became Switzerland’s first all-IP media facility. Formally known as MEDIAparc Maison des Médias at Villars-sur-Glâne, the purpose-built facility boasts a 360° media offering the includes RadioFr in French, RadioFr in German, and RadioFr Music; La Télé Vaud-Fribourg; MédiaPub SA; the news website Sept.ch; digital media ad agency Skippr.ch; and FRiStyle, an online regional event advisor platform. SLG Broadcast served as the system architect and general contractor for the green-field project, which incorporates the latest in IP technologies.
