Standard Equipment Components
The standard Journey Connect configuration consists of a video rack, an audio rack, and a network rack. An additional audio rack may be added, if needed.
Once connected to the internet, most of the equipment can be configured remotely by Journey engineers, so you can concentrate on your production, while we handle the technology.
This standard configuration can be easily modified to meet your specific production requirements.
The Journey Connect video rack features a four-channel frame sync, a 20x20 SDI router, a multiviewer, three Journey Transport appliances (a total of 12 video channels), and a full I/O panel. Fiber converters allow for a mix of copper SDI and ST fiber connections.
The Journey Connect audio rack features a 32-channel MADI-capable audio mixer and a full I/O panel. The audio mixer interfaces with the video frame sync via fiber, providing extensive audio mapping and embedding capabilities.
The Journey Connect network rack features a firewall/router, a 16-port PoE switch, a Journey network controller, and a full I/O panel. Built-in fiber converters permit connection of the IP intercom system via either ethernet or a single strand of fiber. This rack also houses an uninterruptible power supply that services the entire system.
