...The P.A. People delivers sound control and event management systems
The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac - is the world’s largest fun run. Around 80,000 runners and spectators get involved between the city CBD and the iconic Bondi Beach. The P.A. People is a small but integral part of that substantial exercise. We provided an interfaced, bespoke communications system at the event start & finish lines, with a link between ‘show callers’ at both locations to enable constant contact.

By now most audio and video professionals would be aware of, or indeed have used audio networking in one form of another. Dante, Ravenna, AES67 are all current forms of audio transport based on an Ethernet backbone, as were CobraNet and Ethersound in times past. Optocore is also an example of audio transport however it is based on a TDM (time division multiplexing) platform.
At a recent international conference held in Sydney, The P.A.
