Symetrix Provides Strength for RealNetworks
Real Broadcast Network, the hosting solutions division of RealNetworks, has chosen to install over 100 Symetrix 421m and 422 AGC/Levelers at its new Internet Broadcast Operations Center. Digital Systems Technology (DST) provided the specification and installation of center’s equipment. The BOC is the company’s hub for all of its Internet streaming services.
There are 76 Symetrix 421m AGC/levelers in the Seattle facility, which manipulate incoming telephone signals. The BOC’s 52 Symetrix 422 stereo AGC/levelers are designated for the same job, but on incoming satellite channels. The AGC/levelers work well for the company. DST’s account manager, Ben Wolk, said, “With innumerable feeds coming in at any given time, the staff at RBN has its hands (and minds!) full setting up and monitoring the output streams. DST designed the system so the RBN operators would not have to leave their workstations to tweak input audio levels…The Symetrix AGCs handle the leveling task capably.”
