MATROX EXTIO UNITS CONTROL WORKSTATION NOISE OF BROADCASTING.
INBS had recently modernised outdated radio equipment in all of their studios, but the new installation - which included playout servers, recording machines, and script PCs - required additional workstation and server support, leading to a noticeable increase in both fan and hard drive noise. In an effort to eliminate the in-studio buzz, INBS relocated the computer hardware to designated housing rooms, but the new distance reduced display quality and caused problems with USB-connected controllers. INBS technicians solved these problems by installing fanless Matrox Extio F1220 and F1400 units at the operator station, enabling workstation-class performance at a distance using Extio's PCIe fibre-optic extension technology.
"After the initial test run, we were confident that the Extio's unique feature set could help us achieve our re-design goals," stated Gunnar Gisli Gudnason, Head of Maintenance, Icelandic National Broadcasting Service. "Now, with noise-free studios, ultra-crisp monitors, and properly functioning hardware, complaints about system failures are at an all-time low, creating a much more comfortable - and productive - work environment for all INBS employees."
