Nova Entertainment Deploys Matrox Avio KVM Extenders in Audio Production Studios

Zero-latency, zero-compression Avio 125 KVM extenders transmit dual-HD video and multiple USB 2.0 signals to production studios 120 meters from control room

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Nova Entertainment recently deployed Matrox Avio™ F125 KVM extenders to transmit high-resolution, multi-display desktops in their production studios with computing resources centralized in a separate area. Nova Entertainment operates commercial radio networks broadcasting in metropolitan and regional areas and was looking to provide their audio engineers with an uncompromised remote audio production workflow. By selecting Avio F125 solutions to extend dual-HD video and multiple USB 2.0 signals, their engineers can now produce high-quality promotional spots and commercials without latency or interruption.

Housed in a master control room, Avio F125 transmitters attach locally to Apple® Mac Pro® workstations running Avid® Pro Tools® software. OM3 multi-mode fiber-optic cables connect Avio F125 transmitters to Avio F125 receiver units stationed in different audio production studios up to 120 meters away. At the operator location, each Avio receiver unit connects two 1920×1080 Samsung® monitors and high-speed USB 2.0 peripherals including a keyboard, mouse, CD/DVD burner, and external hard disc drive (HDD). According to Luke McKew, Technology Manager at Nova Entertainment, the new workspace allows users to productively record, edit, and mix the latest audio projects.

“Working off a higher-resolution setup makes it easier for the audio engineers to see small changes within the editing software, while the ability to quickly burn a CD or plug in an external HDD without having to walk back to the control room greatly improves workflow and efficiency,” said McKew. “We highly recommend Avio to other stations that are looking to upgrade or install KVM solutions for their own audio production facilities as it is a truly worthwhile investment.”
