Stickman Sound sticks to Rocknet

Las Vegas/Nevada, (PresseBox) - The Las Vegas based company Stickman Sound employs a comprehensive RockNet 100 system for routing, monitoring and recording of all audio for various broadcast applications, with an emphasis on the reality market. RockNet is a digital audio network from Riedel Communications, one of the leading manufacturers of audio, intercom and fiber technology. While RockNet 300 provides up to 160 digital audio channels, RockNet 100 offers 80 digital audio channels over a single counterrotating CAT-5 ring. Based on a redundant ring topology, RockNet forms a selfhealing network with no loss of audio in case of a connection fault between two devices.

Two of the most recent and prominent projects by Stickman Sound include the second season of TLC's Ultimate Cake Off and the eleventh season of Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV.

Ultimate Fighter is a prestigious production already in its eleventh season. Stickman Sound utilizes ten RockNet 100 devices for a total of more than 90 cast, surveillance and fight FX microphones. All audio is multitracked via two Yamaha DM2000 with two RN.141.MY expansion cards for each console.

"Every show is completely different. RockNet's Sound quality, flexibility and size allow us to execute the most technical shoots, in the most remote locations with ease. Inputs and outputs, head amp control and routing can be added and configured very quickly. It's elevated our game and changed the way we design shows. Moving forward with RockNet we believe will keep us, and our clients, ahead of the curve for years to come, said" Fernando Delgado, Chief Engineer /Owner of Stickman Sound.

Stickman Sound's other equipment on the Ultimate Cake Off consists of two RockNet 100 RN.101.IO modules, which provide the inputs needed for 18 wireless microphones used by the show's hosts and guests. Six RN.141.MY expansion cards integrate two Yamaha DM 1000 mixing consoles and one Yamaha DM2000 into the RockNet audio network. They provide six stereo mixes to camera as well as one IFB mix and a 28 channel multitrack system.
