One Becomes Two at WETA
As I write this, we are still making improvements to the room. The existing copy stand needs to be rebuilt to fit the new console, and the guest positions need to be rewired for use with Axia nodes for cough switches and headphones. But other than that, it is a fairly complete build, and has had very few issues since being put back on the air. Fortunately none of the issues have required any actual downtime of the console or the room.
In summary, I don't think a project like this is possible without prior planning, having a backup plan, and the flexibility of an audio over IP system. Without all three of these, this would have taken much longer, and be much more complex.
