German networked audio and interconnectivity specialist DirectOut announces collaboration with the Italian based team of Vivivaldy to establish a tailored service for uncompressed audio transmission over public WAN connections.
Driven by the success of the first ‘Lockdown Rock’ projects which allowed artists and audio professionals to work together remotely in real-time, the experts from both companies decided to join forces and create an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution.
Luca Giaroli, product manager at DirectOut, comments ‘Our products deploying RAVENNA technology have already proven their worth in remote production and broadcast environments. Since the constraints of the pandemic have forced large parts of the audio industry to shut down their businesses, we were thinking about lowering the entry-level of this technology for the pro audio industry. For the first ‚Lockdown Rock’ project we started this late spring, we gained Vivivaldy as a very skilled and reliable partner for this exciting challenge’
Based in Milan, Italy, the IT experts of the Vivivaldy team come with a pro audio background and provide support and consultancy for IP infrastructures, data transport, backup technologies, cloud computing services and much more.
Luca di Chio, CEO of Vivivaldy adds: ‘DirectOut got in touch with us with the idea to enable audio engineers in the pro audio business to make use of existing IP infrastructures, using standard internet connections, even though they are no IT experts. Our goal is to make these clients self-sufficient in using wide-area network transmissions with low latency and maximized reliability.’
Vivivaldy, a branch of DTraining, an IT agency based in Milan, Italy, and has been active in the international market since 2001. Its areas of expertise range from networking to cybersecurity, from digital due diligence to pure consultancy and everything in between. Vivivaldy is the last (but not least) project launched by the company and it represents state of the art and sum of all networking knowledge and expertise of the company, condensed into a single hardware/software solution, devised to help audio professionals carry audio signals over long distances, glitchlessly and with almost zero latency.
