Riedel and RRN Deliver Remote Mastering Service for Peter Maffay
Projects · by Serkan Güner/ Riedel
Riedel Communications and Remote Recording Network (RRN) today announced their collaboration on a unique remote mastering service for a live stream concert performed by Peter Maffay and local musicians from Steintor-Varietè in Halle, Germany.
The special acoustic concert, which took place on April 13th (Easter Monday), was mixed on location by Werner Schmidl and, using RRN's Remote Mixing facility, mastered remotely by Peter Brandt from Studio Boecker in Cologne. Both locations were connected through the Riedel ROC (Remote Operations Center) in Wuppertal, serving as the communications and signal transmission hub of the operation. From here, ROC engineers monitored communications, remotely configured all signals and transmitted all audio streams between venue and studio.
This method of communication and audio transmission was jointly developed by Riedel and Remote Music Productions, a subsidiary of RRN, and is setting standards in producing high quality, environmentally friendly and cost-effective audio transmissions.
“Together with our partners at RRN, we put together an extremely compact plug & play system that could be linked quickly and easily to our ROC via a WAN connection. Without having to worry about setup and communications, Peter and his team could fully concentrate on their task at hand – delivering the perfect sound experience to listeners all over Germany,” said Carsten Voßkühler, Project Manager at Riedel Communications. “We are happy to play a part in the development of this groundbreaking remote service, which is a both cost-efficient and environmentally friendly solution for live event recording, mixing and broadcasting.”
Peter Brandt commented, "Only 4U high, this system is ideal to get the maximum out of FOH mixes and is more than suitable for broadcast and streaming. It was a joint effort from the FOH engineers, Riedel technology and the RRN team. The result was extraordinary!"
