ORF Chooses Jünger Audio MIX4 Mixers for Radio Studios

The Austrian state broadcaster ORF has invested in 14 Jünger Audio MIX4 mixers, which have been installed in the broadcaster’s regional radio studios in Linz.

These compact, four fader mixers are designed for many different applications in Radio and TV, including editing, voice over and console back up. Because they are very simple to use, they are an ideal tool for non-technical staff such as presenters and journalists. The ability to create hundreds of different DSP presets means that each operator can have his or her own configuration stored in the mixer for quick and easy recall.junger-audio-mix4-at-orf.JPG more

SADiE’s BB2 helps Hackney Podcast Take Sony Gold

SADiE’s innovative BB2 desktop audio editing system helped producer Francesca Panetta scoop this year’s Sony Gold Award for Best Internet Programme. Set up by herself and Felix Carey in 2008, the podcast seriously impressed the judges, who commented: “The Hackney Podcast is just the type of targeted and locally orientated content that sets podcasting apart from conventional radio broadcasting. Using first rate contributors the podcast examined how water fits into the lives of people in Hackney. The production quality is outstanding giving the whole listen a water-like lyricism that carries the listen through to its conclusion.�

All of the award-winning series of Hackney podcasts have been edited on SADiE’s BB2, and are driven by the paradox that one of London’s historically most-deprived areas is now also one of its fastest-growing and most culturally diverse. It was this contrast that initially led Panetta to, as she puts it, “combine local politics, environmental issues and everyday lives with art, literature and music.â€? Her Hackney podcasts were designed from the outset to “provide a space with no rules, a platform to push the boundaries of traditional programme making,â€? she adds. The latest editions, Night and Water, the latter of which won the Sony Award, used sound design, environmental recordings, new music, poetry, readings and commentary to allow Hackney residents to hear their neighbourhood in a completely different way. more

SADiE Helps In The Dark Celebrate the Culture of Radio

The SADiE name is one that needs no introduction to radio engineers thanks to the unique relationship the company has with many of the world’s top broadcasters. To reinforce its presence in this field, SADiE recently sponsored In The Dark’s high profile events at the London International Documentary Festival (LIDF), which took place in early May.

This year, In The Dark hosted a number of events in association with LIDF. These allowed audiences to close their eyes and open their ears to a world of aural story telling. Running alongside LIDF’s programme of films and photography, it asked how story-telling through sound continues to enrich documentary culture as a whole. more

Suria FM Notices The Difference That Jünger Audio Makes

As part of its commitment to give listeners the best quality audio possible, Malaysian radio station Suria FM has installed a Jünger Audio D07 two-channel digital transmission processor at its main transmission site.

Fairlight’s reputation for innovation and quality has taken another giant step forward with the launch of EVO, a fully self-contained audio production system for video, film and music. fairlight-evo-console.jpg

The new EVO system, which will be on show for the first time at the NAB 2010 Convention in Las Vegas (Booth C1739), delivers high end console power with cutting-edge affordability. With prices starting at USD $68,000, it is without question today’s big mixer at tomorrow’s smart price.

“EVO is a major development for Fairlight, one that continues the path started by FAME, Prodigy and Constellation,” says Tino Fibaek, Fairlight’s General Manager. “Although these products already offer our customers an integrated audio and video solution, we wanted to refine and enhance the mixing part of that system so that we could improve usability. With EVO, we have achieved exactly that – a console that not only addresses the convergence of audio and video, but also delivers large format mixing functionality within the small surface footprint that is typical of post production consoles.” more

Cats FM, the first private radio station in Sarawak, Malaysia, has ordered six Jünger Audio D07 two-channel digital transmission processors to iron out audio level irregularities throughout it FM transmission chain. iskandar-terence-at-cats-fm-2.jpg

Specifically designed to optimise program signals for FM broadcast and TV transmission, Jünger Audio’s D07 units incorporate the company’s renowned LEVEL MAGICâ„¢ system. This series of automated Level and Loudness control devices adjusts the level from any source at any time, with no pumping, breathing or distortion. It works by simultaneously combining an AGC, a Transient Processor for fast changes and a “look ahead” Peak Limiter for continuous unattended control of any programme material, regardless of its original source.

Based in Kuching, Cats FM broadcasts in Malay and Iban to a wide ranging audience via a network of FM transmitters that are strategically located across the state of Sarawak. Although primarily a 24-hour music and entertainment radio station, it also covers news and local issues. Its reach is so widespread that it can even be heard in parts of neighbouring countries such as Brunei and Kalimantan-Indonesia. more
