White Mark Ltd Ends 2010 On A High Note

Despite the economic doom and gloom, UK studio and acoustic design consultancy White Mark Ltd is reporting an exceptionally busy end to 2010, with 17 major projects under construction on four different continents.

Among these are new radio studios in Egypt, a film production and post production complex in Moscow, multimedia facilities for an international advertising agency in New York, a music recording studio in Mexico and three different projects in London, all involving the design and installation of television post production facilities.

White Mark’s Managing Director David Bell says: “We are noticing a definite trend for larger projects that involve a number of different recording, editing and post production facilities in the same building. It is not uncommon for us to be designing and installing up to 20 rooms at a time for just one client. Most of this work is for film and television production and post production customers but we are still tackling the occasional music studio, although most of these projects are currently overseas.� more

Tube-Tech Celebrates 25 Years of Analog Warmth

tube_tech_25th.JPGCOPENHAGEN, DENMARK – NOVEMBER 2010: For twenty-five years, engineers and producers the world over have associated the no-nonsense blue faceplate and white typeface of TUBE-TECH analog processors with the lush, dimensional sound they impart to any audio that flows through them. After 25 years in business, TUBE-TECH president John G. Petersen continues to craft their equipment with simple, elegant circuitry using only premium-grade components. From the start, Petersen designed TUBE-TECH gear using only vacuum tubes in the active signal path and only transformers on the inputs and outputs. Since the first the design of the first Program Equalizer PE 1A in 1985, over 15,000 TUBE-TECH units have shipped from the headquarters of parent company Lydkraft in Denmark. Because their lifetimes are measured in decades, almost every one of those units is still helping make the music of today sound much better than it would have otherwise.

Before TUBE-TECH became a reality, Petersen had received a degree in electrical engineering from Danish Post and Telegraph and took a job in 1972 at the Danish Broadcasting Company (DBC). In his role as maintenance engineer, he received factory training at Solid State Logic, EMT, Studer, Sony, Neumann, NTP, and Lyrec. His genius for inspecting, understanding, and repairing audio circuits paved the way for TUBE-TECH. “A friend of mine was opening MOX Studio in Copenhagen in the mid-1980s,” said Petersen. “I helped him refurbish all of the gear that was going into it, including two Pultec equalizers. I was skeptical about those boxes. They looked like they belonged in the city dump! But they tested nicely and, more importantly, they sounded amazing.” more

Jünger Audio Opens A New Office In China

With China now the world’s second-largest economy – and with an economic growth rate of around 9% a year – it makes sense for European companies to have a dedicated office in the country so that they are better placed to tap into this lucrative market.

German manufacturer Jünger Audio came to this conclusion some months ago and after careful research into the viability of a Chinese office it has announced the opening of Jünger Audio China. Based in Beijing, this new office is headed by Miss Jian Gao, a Chinese national with extensive experience in the broadcast and professional audio industry.

Peter Poers, Managing Director of Jünger Audio, says: “The combination of improved international relations, an expanding economy and increased foreign investment make China a very attractive business proposition for European companies. We felt from the beginning that it was imperative that our office should be headed by a Chinese national who understood both the business climate and our own industry. Jian Gao is ideally placed to fulfil this role and we are delighted that she is joining Jünger Audio as our chief representative in China.� more
