We have finally purchased an intercom system for C3L.
After much research, we decided to go for an Altair WBS-202 system. The system allows wireless and wired Intercom and has 2 channels available.
So far after a few weeks using it I have to say I am highly impressed and convinced by our choice.
Podcast Maker and OS X lion incompatibility
Monday, 01 August 2011 12:55
After upgrading to Mac OS X Lion, I unfortunately found out that Lemons Dream's Podcast Maker which we were using to publish the C3 Lausanne podcasts is not launching anymore in the new system.
After several unsuccessful attempt to contact Lemons Dream's tech support about a potential update/fix it looks like it may be time to move to a new software.
As a short time solution, I have been using my favorite text editor (Smultron) to edit the xml file. For those who are looking for a more intuitive solution, you can download for free on the Apple app store.
Ideally, I am thinking to move to an online xml editor. An online solution would finally allow anybody in the team to publish the podcast. So far, I have to be contacted once the files are uploaded to publish as the software was hosted on my personal computer (not very practical during holidays or when traveling).
If anybody has a recommendation to do, please drop me a line or comment this article.
Finally the video setup is up and running. Hopefully all our struggles can be useful for other users who read this poste. I will try to summarize the main findings below. For the description of all the tests, refer to the previous post.
The new set up is now as described in the below schematic:
Currently working on a new HD/SD video setup for C3 Lausanne.
The plan is to have everything (excepted the projector) in a flight case to allow easy transport and quick setup.
The schematic probably will be:
The process of understanding how we should do it has not been totally straight forward as I don't know too much about HD (yet). I will try to give some details on what we learned with a short review of the different pieces of equipment.
