THE AGE OF AOIP A new immersive facility in Toronto known as Sportsnet Studios recently unveiled its deployment of two Calrec Artemis consoles – both containing AoIP ImPulse cores and Gateway technology.
for Rogers Sports and Media. “From a technical standpoint, Calrec supports AoIP very well, which fits within our media over IP strategy.” The Calrec consoles are actively used in-studio for every NHL on Sportsnet broadcast – including Hockey Central pre-game shows.
Central to audio functionalities within the studio, the consoles aim to not only broaden current offerings, but adapt easily within any future expansion projects. The studios are housed in two different spaces – Studio 31 and Studio 32, both SDI-based with conversion to IP at the edge. They deliver an enhanced sports experience for fans, containing virtual reality sets, augmented reality, 22 set monitors, a 50ft curved LED wall, 13 cameras and two IP-based production control rooms. “We started down the SMPTE 2110 IP path back in 2017, and these innovative sports studios were the logical next step,” explains Jim Morrison, strategic media advisor and senior media architect
