Graphical Controller for Audio Automation
Studer Professional Audio AG have a worldwide reputation for producing high quality audio mixing desks for broadcasting and recording studios. To improve their competitive position an automated 990 mixing console was specified to automate many commonly used features by storing and recalling mixes, console settings, and managing studio information.
Robinsons worked closely with the Studer team to improve the specification, design and production of the Graphical Controller user interface and protocols. The mixing console was re-engineered to improve automation performance and the system as a whole. The main features are an easy to use 'remote-control' enabling the operators to relay commands to the console from up to 1000 metres away. It also provides intuitive ways to view information and acts as a data store for large amounts of data generated and used by the console.
Internet Based Casino Audit
A world leading land based and internet based Casino operator needed to move quickly to remove its reliance on internet casino provider Boss Media.
The principal option being considered was to directly take over the maintenance, support and ongoing maintenance of the Casino. Robinsons were asked to complete an audit of structure, procedures and processes, quality of software, hardware infrastructure such that the overall feasibility could be assessed. Robinsons were subsequently asked to provide consultancy on the setup of both the development and support infrastructure and conduct the interviews of key members of the new development team.
