Cain reports that, “even though I was running a output machine and understudy system with automatic failover switching of our complex matrix system, I have never had to use it to date. The disguise server runs 100 percent every day, week after week.” Nevertheless, “support from the disguise team has always been second to none. They have always allowed me to get the full potential out of the system” he notes.
It’s not only professionals like Cain who are excited about deploying the disguise pro range servers. “Our clients love it,” he says. “They can throw pretty much anything at me at any time, and it can be done! They also love the visualisation of the GUI and the fact that I can ‘hold’ the outputs live-to-air to tweak a last-minute change without ever needing to go to black.”
In addition to 'The Voice Australia', TDC has used disguise media servers on some eight television shows annually, including the X-Factor, This Time Next Year, Accidental Heroes and Little Big Shots.
