MediaMatrix’s NION digital processing node is now shipping. and the company continues to support its computer-controlled audio and communications systems through intensive educational seminars.
"Because of MediaMatrix’s unique, open-ended architecture, we are attracting a large number of end-users who use MediaMatrix in a variety of applications, from government facilities to convention centers, stadiums and other venues all over the world," says Will Roland, operations manager at MediaMatrix. "It's important to continue our ‘Fundamentals’ seminars for the thousands of venues where these systems continue to operate on a daily basis."
The “Fundamentals of MediaMatrix” seminar was held February 21 through 25, 2005, at Peavey International headquarters and covered the majority of practical technology required to successfully design and implement MediaMatrix audio systems, as well as including coverage of the X-Frame 88 digital audio processor. With a balanced mix of lectures, presentations and hands-on exercises, the seminar provided an in-depth look at the products, technology and applications in which MediaMatrix systems are used.
The seminar also covered frame-based MediaMatrix architecture; MWare and XWare software, design and application; audio transport options; external control; paging interface options; basic networking for control interfacing; and an introduction to CobraNet technology and its use in MediaMatrix systems.
