SSL teaches AoIP at YSTCM
SINGAPORE: Part of the National University of Singapore, the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (YSTCM) operates a recording studio open for students majoring in recording arts as well as commercial productions of classical music. This studio, outfitted with a Solid State Logic (SSL) C200 console, recently served as the setting for a seminar co-hosted by YSTCM and SSL, titled Audio over IP (AoIP) and its Applications.
Conducted by SSL’s service engineer, Richard Wand, the course led about 30 faculty students and attendees from the local audio industry through the history and development of AoIP, the differences between the various formats and SSL’s reason for the implementation of Dante, including its application. ‘The purpose of this seminar was not only to introduce the attendees to AoIP and explain the technology,’ said Mr Wand, ‘but also to tell where it came from, where it is now and where it might go, explain what it can do, what it can’t do, even dispel some of the myths.’
‘It’s a great chance for our students to learn about history and development of AoIP technology and understand it better from the ground up,’ Zhou Xiaodong, senior lecturer for recording arts at YSTCM explained.
‘We are glad to see, in addition to YSTCM students, people from other recording facilities as well as performing arts centres, houses of worship and system integrators coming together here,’ stated Malcolm Chan, general manager of SSL Asia, ‘to present AoIP, a very relevant technology for all of them.’
