New York, NY (April 5, 2021)—In the process of building an IP network for BerkleeNYC recording studio, global technology solutions provider Diversified married TSL’s GTP-V1virtual control processor and Virtual Panels into a solution that TSL has dubbed IP-Cross Connect.
Clem Phillips, senior project engineer for Diversified, came up with a budget-friendly IP network design that utilizes COTS hardware and approached DNF Controls (now part of TSL Products) to create a specialized control software and flexible matrix environment. This allows any of BerkleeNYC’s four recording studios to operate separately or share audio and video resources on larger projects.
Due to Diversified’s custom design, Power Station at BerkleeNYC’s IP network supports three floors of audio studios with nearly two dozen 4K-ready PTZ cameras as well a basement live performance space. The key element to the entire network is a software control layer provided by the TSL IP-Cross Connect solution that ensures that all the individual pieces of audio and video gear can be found, launched and managed across the network.
“TSL helped us put together a custom control layer for the entire facility to control the SFPs using an NMOS ISO4 registry hosted within the virtualized servers alongside the GTP-V1 control processor,” he said. “When TSL acquired DNF in April 2019, it meant that we could apply TSL’s proven Virtual Panel software to the system to provide critical operation of the network. TSL created this particular Virtual Panel specifically for the facility, and because TSL and DNF are now one company, we knew the technology would work seamlessly together—and it has been proving us right!”
The work of integrating the NMOS registry builds on TSL’s involvement with the AMWA IP showcase at IBC 2019 and at Broadcast Asia in 2018, where TSL demonstrated its Virtual Panels working with the DNF GTP-30 controlling Embrionix SFPs.
