New XTA MX36 Console Switching System Aimed at Managing Audio at Live Events and Festivals

first_imgXTA’s new MX36 Console is a DSP-enabled speaker switching system for live events. The dual-rack MX36 can accommodate as many as nine consoles via 36 inputs across analog, AES and Dante networks. Inputs are arranged in sets of four to support standard left, right, front-fill and sub feeds from each individual console. All AES inputs have sample-rate conversion and there is one set of four outputs, available simultaneously across analog, AES and Dante networks, with clock output sync available on AES.All switching takes place in the digital domain with soft crossfades, primarily to switch up to three consoles, each with up to three levels of redundancy. The primary and secondary sources may be selected depending on the availability of support on each console — so AES or Dante, or even just analog — and the MX36 constantly monitors signal integrity thus, will auto-select the selected highest priority secondary source seamlessly should the primary fail. If failover with redundancy is not required, the MX36 can handle up to nine consoles, accommodating three each on Analog, AES and Dante. Furthermore, the Dante buss allows for units to operate in either cascade or parallel modes to extend the input set sizes or number of consoles that may be simultaneously switched.In addition to the quad channel sets for the consoles, there is a mono mic preamp for announcements. This has selectable routing, as well as clarity filtering in DSP and switchable 48-volt phantom power. A stereo line input for background music is also available, again with “sweetening” filtering, selectable routing and fully balanced rear XLR inputs, plus an unbalanced 3.5mm jack front panel input. Just as important as the extensive switching and automatic routing capabilities, the MX36 also has full headphone monitoring of every line individually, including redundancy channels, and is visualized on extended PFL style metering.All of this is fully user-configurable via front panel controls. XTA says there’s no way for the device to be tampered with remotely, and once settings are locked down, the engineer can step away, safe in the knowledge that the MX36 will keep the music playing, backed up with dual redundant power supplies.For details and specs on XTA’s new MX36, visit here.last_img read more

You don’t change something that is working.”Apart from Vieira, Andrew King finished third after losing out on the closing laps to the host’s and his Renault Megane.TRUELOVE LOVES FBIR WALLERFIELDMeanwhile, Truelove, who makes his maiden entry to the CMRC Superstock class, recovered from a bad start to claim the top spot on the podium.“Because I’m not used to the start line scenery, I was a bit unsure when to go and when it finally went, I dropped the clutch a bit too quickly and I lost a bit of time,” he said.He is confident of rivalling his performances today in the second round of races.Matthew Vieira had a last-lap clash with one of Trinidad competitors which dropped him down to eighth.Meanwhile, mechanical troubles plagued Sharima Khan in qualifying in race one during the Group 1, while the same occurred with Haniff Mohamed in Group 2.Rameez Mohamed suffered the same fate after trying qualification but failing just three laps into the 15-minute session.Racing begins at 09:00hrs today.last_img read more

ICC discussing COVID-19 substitutes for test matches, says ECB official

first_img(Reuters) – The International Cricket Council (ICC) is discussing the possibility of introducing substitutes if a player tests positive for COVID-19 during a test match, England and Wales Cricket Board director of special projects Steve Elworthy said. Last year, the ICC approved “like for like” substitutes across all formats of international cricket to replace concussed players during matches and Elworthy said the same rule would have to be applied for COVID-19 substitutes.“COVID replacements are certainly something that the ICC are discussing,” Elworthy told Sky Sports“I’ve seen communication about that and it’s certainly something we hope would be allowed — specifically for test matches, not necessarily ODIs (one-day internationals) or T20s (Twenty20). “That replacement would have to be a ‘like for like’ player… Our on-site COVID medical practitioner and Public Health England would be informed immediately and that player would then be put into isolation for a period of time.”England are set to host the West Indies in a three-test series next month, with the visitors flying in a 14-man squad plus 11 reserves who will train and quarantine together before the first test scheduled for July 8 in Southampton.“With the testing protocols of getting those players into that (bio-secure) bubble first, you would hope that wouldn’t be a scenario we’d have to deal with,” Elworthy added. “But clearly it’s something we are planning for.”last_img read more

Exclusive: Vitolo reaches an agreement with Atletico Madrid

first_img After four years with Sevilla, there is an agreement between all three parties for the 27-year-old to become the first signing at Atletico this summer. Simeone wants to take advantage of the Spanish international’s versatility, given he can play at right-back as well as in a range of forward positions.  Vitolo will cost Atletico 40 million euros, which is the cost of his release clause and there was also some interest shown by Barcelona.  IN SPORT.ES Sevilla forward Vitolo Machín has an agreement in principle to join Atletico Madrid for the 2017-18 season.  Noticia SPORT: Vitolo llega a un acuerdo con el Atlético de Madridcenter_img Upd. at 10:21 22/05/2017 Regardless of the potential transfer ban, Vitolo was Cholo Simeone’s top target.

Late goals from Coutinho and Neymar help Brazil beat Costa Rica Serbia CEST Juan Carlos Gracia Switzerland didn’t give up, though, and little by little they took control of the game, showing that they are a compact side who know how to compete. The comeback came after the break. Xhaka levelled the scores with a great effort from outside the box and then Shaqiri, the game’s best player, sealed the win, applying the finishing touch to a perfect counter-attack. It was a deserved win which puts the Swiss within touching distance of the last 16.  22/06/2018 Upd. at 23:03 Serbia, who for large parts of the night looked set to book their place in the last 16, must now beat Brazil in their final game to avoid exiting the competition early. Brazil have still not qualified, either, but a draw will be enough for them to finish at least second in the group. No one will doubt that Switzerland will get three points against Costa Rica, who are now eliminated.  Suiza SUI Neymar’s message for Brazil fans after late Costa Rica win Switzerland came from behind to beat Serbia 2-1 and, with one game to go, edge closer towards the last 16 of the World Cup in Russia. They took control of the game in second half with goals from Xhaka — a spectacular long range effort — and Shaqiri cancelling out Mitrovic’s fifth minute opener.  It was an exciting game which was finally won by the more competitive team. Serbia started well and Mitrovic gave them an early lead with a perfect header. Those early minutes proved to be Serbia’s best spell and they could have increased their lead. last_img read more
