Intellimix: The user-friendly nature and G-Touch fader technology of Intellimix is being utilised by CBC

This makes the mixers an essential component of the international broadcasting for the German soccer league Bundesliga, which CBC produces for Sportcast and the DFL.

Detlef Scholz, editing supervisor at CBC, said: “Our team is pleased about (the Intellimix) design and the user-friendly handling. It took only a short period of time to get used to the device. We recognise distinct enhancements of our workflows.” 

Andy Mikutta, sales director of Yellowtec, said: “Intellimix lives up to the extremely high requirements of today’s audio mixing and audio video sync as shown by CBC. Many different production tasks can be mastered while the handling of the device remains intuitive.”

Mikutta added that the fully loaded 8-channel Intellimix Pro mixer allows for simultaneous control over up to eight channels with one single unit. With the X64 Extension, all relevant AoIP formats like Livewire+, AES67, Dante, MADI, RAVENNA, NMOS and SMTPE are able to connect. For the 4-channel Intellimix Focus, X64 AoIP is available as an optional extension.
