The challenge was to produce the full, three-hour show, during the 30-kilometer trip from Aartselaar (near Antwerp) to the Medialaan studio in Vilvoorde (Brussels). Rudi Wynants, Q-Music engineer and the technical brain behind the station’s stunts, managed the technical side of the operation. – See more at: http://www.radioworld.com/article/q-music-takes-to-the-traffic/273500#sthash.XpNq84Zg.dpuf
“We’ve equipped (the rear seat position of) the tandem with a Behringer Xenyx battery-operated mixer and two iPods,” said Wynants – See more at: http://www.radioworld.com/article/q-music-takes-to-the-traffic/273500#sthash.XpNq84Zg.dpuf
Two 4G antennas in the dog-car established data connections with GSM transmitters along the route.
“I opted for a Comrex BRIC-Link codec for this particular action because it has a long life on battery power — they lasted the full three-hour show,” Wynants continued. “The mixer section for the Comrex Access Portable is another great asset. This allowed us to make a separate output mix for the presenters of the show.”
Wynants used the Comrex network interface and a Conel 4G LTE router to achieve maximum 4G connectivity during the broadcast.
