It is complete!

(well, at least the front of it is)

After last week’s DebConf Video Team sprint (thanks again to Jasper @ Linux Belgium for hosting us), the missing components for the stage box turned up right as I was driving back to Paris, and I could take the time to assemble them tonight.

The final inventory of this 6U rack is, from top to bottom:

  • U1: 1 Shure UA844+SWB antenna and power distribution system
  • U2 and U3: 4 Shure BLX4R/S8 receivers
  • U4: 1 Numato Opsis, 1 Minnowboard Turbot, 1 Netgear Gigabit Ethernet Switch to do presenter laptop (HDMI) capture, all neatly packed in a rackmount case.
  • U5 and U6: 1 tray with 2 BLX1/S8 belt packs with MX153T earset microphones and 2 BLX2/SM58 handheld microphone assemblies

This combination of audio and video equipment is all the things that the DebConf Video Team needs to have near the stage to record presentations in one room.

The next step will be to get the back panel milled to properly mount connectors, so that we don’t have to take the back of the box apart to wire things up 🙂

You may see this equipment in action at one of Debian’s upcoming events.
