New York (October 30, 2006)–StudiTech, a Russian audio distributor, recently delivered an InnovaSon Sy48 digital mixing console to RUK University in Mytischi just outside the Russian capital of Moscow.
The InnovaSon Sy48 desk, newly installed at RUK University in Russia.The desk will be used in the school’s new multipurpose venue that will stage concerts, conferences and AV presentations as well as acting as a TV bridge for videoconferencing with other university facilities in Russia. The keyword was therefore flexibility, and that was what dictated the choice of an InnovaSon console, explained StudiTech’s Nikita Stepanov. It also explained the slightly unusual configuration of the Sy48 where StudiTech opted to house all the I/O modules in a local Mixbox rather than in the slots provided on the back of the console.
“A standard Sy48 is delivered as a stand-alone unit with all of the I/O modules plugged into the back of the console,” described Stepanov. “However, in this instance, we required more I/O modules than would fit into the available slots, so we simply added a local Mixbox to the package, which enabled us to increase the capacity of the console. We also supplied five custom stageboxes which are located under the stage, each of which is connected to a module in the Mixbox via a multicore. At a later date, we will replace the multicore with a single CAT5 cable and distribute all the audio over EtherSound, but budget restraints wouldn’t allow us to do this in the first phase. However, this is another great advantage of the InnovaSon concept–it’s totally flexible, user-configurable, and we can upgrade cheaply and easily at any time. As soon as RUK is ready for EtherSound, we can have it done in moments for very little extra cost. It’s the ideal solution.”
