Canford to host IP Comms workshop at MediaCityUK

Green go workshop

Green-GO is a cost-effective, multi-award winning, digital intercom over Ethernet, that uses a unique design concept to create scalable communication systems suitable for major live events, multi-function performance venues, churches, high-end rental facilities and broadcasters.

Green-GO is distributed in the UK and Ireland exclusively by Canford. The workshops, which are intended for Consultants, System Designers and Operators involved in Touring, AV, Live Events, Theatre and Broadcast, will be split over two separate sessions. An Introduction (AM) will cover system components, applications and linking to Walkie-Talkies, and an Advanced (PM) session will explore techniques to create programme audio, show relay and audio for presenters IEM and system configuration. Suits and ties should be left at home!

Although booking is required the event is free to attend, and will be held in Pod 10 within the Greenhouse Building at MediaCityUK to coincide with the KitPlus Show on 5th November.

Green-GO differs fundamentally from other intercom designs which use a central matrix or routing-engine at their core. Instead, each outstation holds all routing data, system set-up and user preferences. Operating without a central matrix eliminates the possibility of a catastrophic single component failure.
The system will operate on 100Mbit or higher Ethernet networks and with its inherent low data rates, it can typically co-exist with other data protocols. Where data traffic is very heavy, you could consider creating a Green-GO VLAN.

High quality, full duplex interfacing to legacy analogue comms systems or third party digital intercom is easy using dedicated 2-Wire and 4-Wire interfaces. Program audio, show relay and other audio signals can be fed in and out of the system.

When distances between users increases, Green-GO can successfully be transmitted over fibre. When those distances become hundreds or thousands of miles, bridging over the internet offers a high quality alternative. Using proprietary software, the BridgeX interface provides four independent data streams for linking to comms at four remote sites or providing up to four separate comms channels to a single site.

Crew and security teams communicating over walkie-talkies can also be interfaced with Green-GO to supply surprisingly intelligible 2-way audio.

GPIO sockets on the rear of some devices provide 2 channels of opening/closing contacts. This can be used to trigger external devices or, alternatively, an external switch can be used to trigger a function on Green-GO.

This sophisticated yet simple to use system provides an affordable way to enter the world of digital intercom with its many benefits.

    Who’s listening?

    Noise can be detrimental to our overall wellbeing and of course our hearing. Throughout the course of a day we can unwittingly expose ourselves to noise levels that are harmful to our hearing. This could be during the course of completing an exercise class at our local gym where the PA system plays or it could be whilst listening to a favourite album using headphones or attending a concert.
