See How AV & IT Managers and Commercial Integrators are Leading the Industry
Ben Diger, Broadcast Engineer, Children’s Minnesota Hospital Star Studios
Children’s Minnesota is one of the largest, freestanding pediatric health systems in the US with two hospitals, 12 primary care clinics, six rehabilitation centers and nine specialty care sites. Star Studios is their in-house television studio. It offers unique programming from studio spaces on both campuses to the Children’s own television channel. These live and pre-recorded shows are interactive for patients and families to participate using the telephone in their room.
Ben Diger, Star Studio Broadcast Engineer, looked to Audinate, Dante and Dante Domain Manager to unify the two facilities, control the audio streams and streamline the workflow—allowing access to any audio sources and destinations from anywhere in the hospitals. Children’s can trust Dante Domain Manager to provide quality audio to truly ‘wow’ its audiences.
"With live and prerecorded content, we realize that the audio is 75 to 80 percent... if we have bad audio no one's going to watch. Producing a show with quality professional audio is a must... Dante Domain Manager was selected because we have the added complexity of being in two hospitals. When we first started using Dante Domain Manager, I was surprised by how easy it was to deploy. As soon as we had it installed on our server, it was basically a couple of clicks and we were up and running, And it was easy to get our two audio mixers connected with Dante, and now that they're set up it runs flawlessly."
