The Catholic Church organizes the World Meeting of Families every three years. This year’s five-day event was held May 30 through June 3, including two main services led by Pope Benedict XVI. An estimated one million people were at Bresso Airport to witness the services, which were also broadcast on television worldwide.

M.M.S. Srl provided the audio distribution installation and selected Barix IP audio products. Four Barix Exstreamer 500 devices encoded the audio for streaming over an Ubiquiti Nanostation 5 AirMax 5.4 Ghz network, feeding four transmission towers.

The Exstreamer 500 devices provided the low latency required to deliver quality audio streams in real time.

M.M.S. Srl also connected 22 Barix Exstreamer 100 to Ubiquiti Nanostation receivers for audio decoding at the loudspeaker points. The loudspeakers were distributed amongst 24 towers to cover numerous audio paths, with the most distant end points located approximately three-quarters of a mile from the stage.

“It was imperative that the audio was carried wirelessly,” said Domenico Carnuccio, sound engineer, M.M.S. Srl. “The Barix products allowed us to deploy a strong audio network in a short amount of time and at a reasonable price.”
