One of my clients has a Rivendell system that is on the air 24/7 except
for an opera program that runs on Saturdays. The Rivendell system is
connected to a Broadcast Tools ACS8.2 switcher. The opera program comes
from a Comrex Access box which is connected to a different input on the
same switcher. Rivendell puts it on the air by commanding the switcher to
change to the appropriate input.
As a backup to the Access, we have a Barix Exstreamer 100 that can be
programmed to take an mp3 stream from another station I consult which
carries the same opera program. The Barix is wired to a third switcher
input, and can be put on the air from a sound panel button in Rivendell.
It works like a charm.
