DPA Appoints OKNO-AUDIO As Its Distribution Partner In Russia

DPA Microphones has appointed OKNO-AUDIO as its new distributor in Russia, with responsibility for its entire product range including the Award-winning d:facto™ Vocal Microphone, the recently introduced modular active booms from the d:dicate™ Recording microphone and d:fine™ 66 and 88 Miniature Headset Microphones.

Established in 2012, OKNO-AUDIO is a division of Russia’s premier broadcast systems integration company OKNO-TV, which itself has been in operation for more than 20 years. OKNO-AUDIO’s staff have a thorough knowledge of the Russian pro audio market and the company is already a distributor of a number of key pro audio brands including Behringer, Harman Professional, Lab Gruppen, Mogami and Tannoy.

Michael Trolle, DPA’s Area Sales Manager for EMEA, says: “The Russian market is growing rapidly and carries enormous potential for DPA. To maximise this, we need a strong distribution partner with an established presence in the live sound, broadcast and installation markets. OKNO-AUDIO fits this brief perfectly. The company understands the quality hallmark of the DPA brand and shares our proactive approach to developing the market for our products.”

Trolle adds that OKNO-AUDIO has links with other high quality pro audio brands and this brings additional benefits to the partnership.

“Many of these brands complement our product range and OKNO’s ability to offer a comprehensive equipment package gives them – and DPA – additional leverage in the market,” he says.

Renowned for their audio accuracy, reliability and superb engineering, DPA microphones are the first choice for numerous recording and touring artists and sound engineers. The company’s extensive product range also encompasses many other industry areas including broadcast, film, theatre, installation, conferencing and security.
Kirill Pavlov, General Director of OKNO-AUDIO, adds: “It was extremely important for us to become a distributor for such a well-known brand as DPA. The popularity of these microphones is constantly increasing, both among system integrators and in the retail network. OKNO-AUDIO not only possesses one of the biggest dealer networks in Russia, but is also developing its own contract branch of activities by cooperating with theatres, sports complexes and sound recording studios.

Vladislav Manaenkov, co-founder and Executive Director of OKNO-AUDIO, continues: “By being part of OKNO-TV, which is the greatest TV and broadcast integrator in the Russian Federation, we have no doubt that the use of DPA microphones in this field will be valuable and up-to-date.

Sound Devices Takes Home Cinema Audio Society’s Technical Achievement Award

REEDSBURG, WI, FEBRUARY 25, 2014 – Sound Devices, specialists in portable audio and video products for field production, is pleased to announce that its 633 Production Mixer has earned the prestigious Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Technical Achievement Award in the production category.

The CAS Technical Achievement Awards recognize innovations in recording technologies, including hardware and software products that are used by sound mixing professionals. Sound Devices has now been a recipient of the CAS Technical Achievement Award four times. The 744T and 788T Production Recorders, and the 664 Field Production Mixer are past winners.

“To be consistently recognized for our new products with CAS Technical Achievement Awards is an outstanding accomplishment,” says Matt Anderson, President of Sound Devices. “At Sound Devices, we continue to push the boundaries by presenting high-quality, innovative tools that really make a difference in the workflow of our customers. Having the Cinema Audio Society behind us reaffirms the positive impact that our product development goals have within the industry.”

Sound Devices 633 mixer/recorder features six inputs, with three high-bandwidth mic/line XLR inputs complete with phantom power, high-pass filter, input limiter and variable pan. Three additional line-level inputs appear on TA3 (mini-XLR) connectors. All inputs are assignable to any output bus. AES digital I/O, including support for AES42 digital microphones, is available.

The 633 offers 10-track 24-bit, 48 kHz uncompressed polyphonic or monophonic broadcast WAV file recording (96 kHz for eight tracks, 192 kHz for six tracks) or timecode stamped MP3 recording to CompactFlash and/or SD cards. All six inputs plus Left/Right and Aux 1/2, can be recorded to individual tracks. Similar to Sound Devices’ 12-input 664 Production Mixer, the 633 offers dual card slots that record to either one or both cards simultaneously, with the added ability to assign different tracks to each memory card.

Unique to the industry, the 633 is equipped with a four-way power supply and Sound Devices’ proprietary PowerSafe technology. This four-way powering allows for multiple, simultaneous power sources including external DC on a Hirose 4-pin locking (12-18 V), two removable and independent L-type Lithium-ion batteries and internal AA battery powering (six-AA). The unit detects when power sources are removed and seamlessly transitions to an available power source. With its PowerSafe circuitry, when all power is removed the unit remains on for 10 seconds to close all file operations and properly shut down. With PowerSafe, a complete power loss has no effect on the recording. PowerSafe also provides two-second ‘power-on-to-recording’ so the mixer is ready for operation at a moment’s notice.

Sound Devices, LLC designs and manufactures portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders, and digital video recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news-gathering, and acoustical test and measurement applications. Founded in 1998, the company designs and manufactures from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI and Highland Park, IL.

RTW LQL Software Now Shipping Worldwide

Developed for logging, true-peak data analysis and reporting, the LQL is compatible with the TM7, TMR7 and TM9 TouchMonitor line of products running with Logging Data Server license (SW20014). The LQL is a natural extension of RTW’s range of innovative software options for the 7- and 9-inch line of TouchMonitor audio meters.

The new PC software is free of charge to users; however the SW20014 Logging Data Server license is required to enable a TM7, TMR7 or TM9 series meter to be compatible with data export and additional display functions.

The TM7 and TM9 series TouchMonitors, which include the innovative Magic LRA instrument, feature a 7- and 9-inch touch-sensitive display, respectively, and provide unparalleled flexibility and modularity, combined with intuitive control. The software visualizes multiple sources simultaneously. Both support displaying the same signal on multiple instruments in parallel, each with dedicated defaults with both horizontal and vertical operation. TM7 visualizes up to 40 sources at the same time, while the TM9 visualizes up to 48 and the TMR7, specifically designed for radio broadcasting, visualizes up to four.

Various audio interfaces and combinations are available i.e. analog, AES3, AES3id or 3G-SDI. RTW’s entire TouchMonitor range was created to help adhere to all major industry loudness standards, including EBU R128, ITU BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85 and ARIB.

Symetrix Partners with Attero Tech & Stewart Audio to Deliver Dante Ease

A trio of Dante-enabled devices from the manufacturers

The latest version of Symetrix’ SymNet Composer software allows one platform to configure select products enabled with Audinate’s Dante networking technology from all three manufacturers.

AMSTERDAM (NL) / ISE 2014 — (February 4 2014): In a significant development for users of Audinate’s Dante media networking technology, Symetrix has announced that the latest version of its popular SymNet Composer software will enable complete configuration of select Dante-enabled Symetrix, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio products.

Settings affecting I/O levels, routing and more will be defined with SymNet Composer 2.0, which gives customers the ability to consolidate operations on a single platform where three or more were previously required.

“As a result of the release, integrators will no longer need separate software packages for each manufacturer’s product as well as Dante Controller,” comments Trent Wagner, Senior Product Manager at Symetrix. “Supported Dante-enabled products will appear side-by-side with Symetrix SymNet products in the Composer software and can be managed or configured identically to Symetrix products. Professionals who have used our Composer before will have no learning curve.”

Stewart Audio has long pursued a focus on making networked AV affordable and practical, and its current range includes innovative Dante end-points. “Our customers desire solutions that prove to be both compatible and complete in addressing their audio challenges. The collaboration between Stewart Audio, Symetrix and Attero Tech represents a major step in that direction,” says Stewart Audio’s Chief Marketing Officer, Brian McCormick.

He continues: “By collaborating on solutions we can create the right outcomes for our customers. With all the difficulties consultants and integrators face daily, presenting them with a comprehensive answer to an application is what this partnership is really about.”

Mike Sims, Director of Marketing and Sales at Attero Tech – which produces a trio of Dante interfaces – welcomes the partnership as “the next logical step” in the interoperability of Dante networked audio systems. “Our goal has been to make deployment of these systems as seamless as possible, while allowing consultants and integrators to choose best-of-class products from a variety of manufacturers. This is the future of interoperability,” he declares.

The initial response from the integrator community is also encouraging. Chuck Mitchell is owner of California-based Technology of the Arts and recently undertook a Dante-centric installation involving Symetrix and Attero Tech products. “Dante is rapidly becoming a default choice for all manner of projects in the installed environment,” he says. “The partnership between Symetrix, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio around the use of Dante-based systems is to be warmly welcomed as it helps to bring every installer’s dream of blanket interoperability that little bit closer to being realised.”

Whisperings Solo Piano Radio First to Deploy New StreamGuys Interactive HTML5 Multimedia Player

StreamGuys’ unique player design gives “free stream” listeners a richer broadcast experience

BAYSIDE, CALIFORNIA, January 13, 2014StreamGuys announces that Whisperings Solo Piano Radio is its first customer to deploy the company’s new interactive HTML5 player. The player gives mobile listeners without a Flash player a simple way to access the free Whisperings stream, while also delivering a much richer broadcast experience through integrated metadata support.

The integrated metadata gives free stream listeners a synchronized stream with high-quality music and visual information including artist names, song titles and album titles — as well as live links to purchase music through artist sites. Site owner and independent musician David Nevue notes that this richer experience, along with simpler playback on mobile devices, is important to attracting new listeners and retaining audiences in an increasingly crowded and fragmented marketplace.

“Whisperings launched at a time when there was no other online listening option for solo piano music,” said Nevue, himself a solo pianist and composer. “There are many more options today and it is important that new listeners are greeted with a live stream rather than a message to download an app or a plug-in. The HTML5 player works across all devices so visitors don’t have to work to access our stream, while also offering a modern Pandora or iTunes Radio-like experience with artwork, details and buy links.”

Nevue also sees this enhanced experience as an opportunity to interest more listeners in Whisperings PureStream, his commercial-free subscription service that offers an expanded artist roster, customizable playlists and more. Whisperings has long used StreamGuys’ RevenueStream software platform for secure, password-protected subscription controls and conditional access that ensures only subscribers can access the stream. His long-term satisfaction with StreamGuys for content delivery and stream protection played a significant role in his decision to integrate the new HTML5 player.

“I have always thought of StreamGuys as more of a partner than just another company I work with. They provide outstanding customer service and a willingness to find solutions to obstacles,” he said. “StreamGuys has also offered flexible, affordable services to meet my changing bandwidth needs over the years, and they have been receptive and responsive to my requests regarding capabilities of the HTML5 player. They have delivered a multiformat streaming solution with this player that also offers new ways to explore revenue generation for the free stream.”

Nevue’s above reference is to live dynamic advertising insertion, which StreamGuys supports within its HTML5 player via pre-rolls, mid-rolls and post-rolls. He also expects to use the player as an alternative choice for his ad-free PureStream service at a later date.

StreamGuys launched its HTML5 player last month as part of its strategy to ensure that broadcasters, audio publishers and service providers can reach consumers across many fixed and mobile devices. The company is in the process of rolling out its HTML5 player for other customers in the US and abroad.
