Canal Plus’ All-IP Facility Takes Advantage of AoIP for Dante Mixing with TSL Products

Canal+, part of the Vivendi Group, has installed 23 MPA1 Mix Dante units from TSL Products for custom audio mixing within the IP-based workflow at its Paris production facility, dubbed the Canal+ Factory.

The Factory holds the distinction of being Europe’s first all-IP facility, and required IP-capable mixing solutions for various technical production positions. In addition, the chosen system had to be able to operate on the Audinate Dante platform for Audio over IP.  The TSL Products MPA1 Mix Dante not only met these criteria but also offered professional audio clarity that is second to none.

“We chose to work on the Dante platform as it is the preferred audio networking solution,” said Jean-Marc Delage, Project Manager, Canal +, alluding to the comprehensive industry support of the Dante networking protocol. “TSL Product’s Dante-enabled MPA1 units fit seamlessly into our workflow as well as our budget, and offers excellent overall quality for our custom mixes.”

The MPA1 Mix Dante is specifically designed for operators that need to create a custom mix from a Dante stream. With a full suite of features accessible via a web-based UI, the MPA1 Mix Dante is simple to use and flexible enough to meet specific and demanding workflow requirements. The built-in web server enables users to remotely view the status and control any of the networked MPA1 monitors, allowing for quick error correction and adjustment. The web UI also enables engineers to remotely configure and customize individual units and functions.

The MPA1 Mix Dante will be on display in the TSL Booth at the 2017 NAB Show.
