Las Vegas–April 19, 2012 – Audio specialist Sennheiser [booth C2632] was presented with an ACE (Awesome Cool Exhibit) Award by the NAB Show on Wednesday during a special ceremony. The peer-driven award recognizes NAB Show exhibitors for innovations in booth design and execution. Sennheiser captured the ‘medium sized’ booth category, which is defined as being between 200 and 900 square feet.

The judging criteria for the NAB’s ACE Awards are as follows:

Creativity: use of color, sound, light and other creative elements
Effectiveness: how well the booth draws in and engages the visitor
Overall structure: quality of the build and innovative use of materials
Peer review: overall “look and feel” as judged by other exhibitors

The NAB Show booth design is based on Sennheiser’s new global booth concept that was debuted at the CES and NAMM shows earlier this year and providesa tangible experience of the audio specialist’s brand values, inviting exploration and interaction. The interior space presents Sennheiser’s products in a series of ‘focused islands,’ each concentrating on a particular theme and providing visitors with a ‘hands-on’ experience. A sophisticated lighting concept spotlights each product and optimizes visibility.

This new booth design is yet another milestone in the audio specialist’s premium brand strategy.

“Our team is very proud to have been recognized by the NAB with the ACE Award,” commented Greg Beebe, President of Sennheiser USA. “Our U.S. team was the first to execute this important global concept from Sennheiser, and we have received a great deal of positive feedback from booth attendees — both during NAB Show and at other important U.S. trade shows.”

Over the coming year, the new concept will be used at all Sennheiser leading shows and trade fairs in the Consumer Electronics, Installed Sound and Professional Systems markets.

Antelope Audio to Unveil Rubicon – World’s First Atomic AD-DA Preamp

Santa Monica, CA, April 19, 2012– Antelope Audio will introduce Rubicon, a groundbreaking 384 kHz digital audio preamplifier which integrates the world renowned 10M Rubidium atomic clock. Rubicon caters to the ever-increasing interest in high-resolution audio, addressing the specific needs of high-end consumer electronics enthusiasts for accurate audio representation and detailed soundstage of both analog and digital recordings. The new device will be presented to the public during the Munich High End Show, May 3rd – 6th.

Rubicon is the first DAC to integrate a Rubidium atomic clock, which is 100,000 times more stable than a traditional crystal oscillator. Coupled with Antelope’s 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology, the Rubidium achieves a breakthrough in jitter management, improving the sound quality in an unprecedented way. The same technology is implemented in the company’s flagship master clocks used for scoring blockbusters such as Avatar and available at the best recording and mastering studios around the Globe.

“I find the idea of an audio enthusiast being able to hear his/her favorite recordings clocked by the world’s most stable clock very exciting. I believe this will bring the music appreciation in the home environment to a completely new level compared only to the precision and sonic detail representation available at the finest professional listening rooms,” shared Igor Levin, CEO and founder of Antelope Audio.

Housed in a sturdy, machined-aluminum enclosure with a vintage Art Deco design, Rubicon incorporates a discrete phono preamp, ultra linear, dual stage headphone drivers and Antelope’s renowned gold-plated relay volume control.

The transformer-based, ultra-low noise, discrete JFET phono preamp is a complement that will be highly appreciated by many vinyl lovers. In addition to the 384 kHz DAC, Rubicon also includes ultra-high sample rate A/D conversion. These functionalities together with the high resolution USB recording capability provide the users with the sublime experience of digitizing their favorite tracks, still keeping the depth and the warmth of the original analog recordings.

In addition to the 384 kHz USB streaming, Rubicon offers extended flexibility and smooth user experience provided by the implemented DLNA capability. The DLNA streaming gives users the opportunity to wirelessly push audio files from their smart phone, PC or NAS (Network-attached storage) server and play the content through the high-sample rate DAC.

Rubicon inherits the D/A conversion technology from 384 kHz Zodiac Gold DAC – the 2012 winner of the Audio Excellence Award in Japan and often described by reviewers and prominent sound engineers as “future-proofed”, “clean”, “neutral” and “accurate”. The A/D circuit comes from the 2011 winner of the Audio Media Gear of the Year award, high-end professional mastering converter Eclipse 384.

Antelope Audio plans to present the Rubicon for the first time to the public and the media during the Munich High End Show, in hall 3, booth A 04, at 2 pm, on May 3rd.

Sound Devices Teams Up with Habitat for Humanity for Deconstruction Project at New Facility

REEDSBURG, WI, APRIL 19, 2012 — Sound Devices (2012 NAB Booth C2546), experts in portable audio and video products for field production, recently relocated and settled into its new 27,000-square-foot U.S. headquarters in Reedsburg, WI. As part of the move, the company made its renovation a community project by donating the front portion of the building to the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate.

“The front section of the building was isolated from the rest of the facility, so it was originally in our plans to tear it down,” says Jon Tatooles, managing director of Sound Devices. “However, when I learned that Habitat for Humanity participates in deconstruction projects, it made sense to donate the material and divert it from a local landfill. The volunteers on site were really amazing throughout this venture and we are happy to help others in need.”

After hearing about Habitat for Humanity’s deconstruction projects through a business associate who sits on the board of directors for the Dane County Habitat branch, Sound Devices coordinated the project with the local Sauk and Columbia County affiliate. Bruce Koch, deconstruction and ReStore (Habitat’s ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public) coordinator for the affiliate, conducted an initial visual inspection of the facility in order to determine the types and quantity of materials that were salvageable. Once the project was green lighted, volunteers worked meticulously to deconstruct the entire building over the course of seven days.

Habitat for Humanity is an international organization with local affiliates across the globe that builds housing for low-income working families. The materials collected at the Sound Devices project totaled more than six 30-yard dumpsters of either usable, re-sellable or recyclable materials, including approximately 33 40-foot trusses, 200 2x6s, 80 sheets of 4×8 plywood, 200 studs, siding, insulation, piping, wiring, doors, the furnace and air conditioners. The re-sellable items will be sold in Habitat’s ReStore in nearby Baraboo. The money raised will help Habitat build new houses and pay for overhead expenses at the ReStore.

“For a company like Sound Devices to think outside the box and let us come in to their facility to help others is amazing,” says Koch. “Wonderful things happen when a low-income family has its own home—the children flourish and the parents can better provide—it’s really a great thing to see firsthand. At Habitat, we strive to do everything we can to further that cause. When a local company like Sound Devices can see that vision with us, we’re all happy and everyone benefits.”

Sound Devices’ new facility is located at E7556 State Road 23/33 in Reedsburg.

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. The thirteen-year old company designs and manufactures from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI and Highland Park, IL.

When using fast storage drives, its high throughput allows realtime playback of multiple streams of high-data-rate video.

The PIX-DOCK provides both power and data over a single cable and is compatible with SATA drives. PIX-DOCK includes a six-foot Thunderbolt cable that connects to the PIX-CADDY using its eSATAp connection. It also offers a secure, latching connection to PIX-CADDY, and its weighted base prevents sliding on desktop surfaces.

“PIX-DOCK simplifies and speeds the transfer and management of files when using our PIX recorders,” says Jon Tatooles, managing director at Sound Devices. “By utilizing Thunderbolt, we are able provide our users with blazing fast and reliable transfers.”

The PIX 220, PIX 240 and PIX 260 record directly to QuickTime using Apple’s ProRes or Avid’s DNxHD codecs. Since PIX recorders use ProRes and DNxHD, files recorded in the field can be used directly in post production, making the workflow simple and fast. The PIX 240 and PIX 260 add even more flexibility, with their time code, sync generator, and simultaneous SDI and HDMI outputs. All PIX recorders bring the company’s award-winning audio expertise and performance to their video products.

Clear-Com Introduces Tempest2400 Masterbelt at the 2012 NAB Show

All the Capabilities of the Tempest2400 BaseStation in a Compact and Portable Package

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 18, 2012 ? Clear-Com, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, today announces the Tempest2400 MasterBelt digital wireless intercom at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C8008). Ideal for mobile productions, the Tempest2400 MasterBelt offers all the advanced features, reliability and robustness of the Tempest2400 rack-mount BaseStation, including the new version 3.0 features, in a compact, portable and easy-to-deploy package that can be conveniently worn on the hip.

The Tempest2400 MasterBelt provides mobile broadcasters the ability to coordinate and communicate hands-free within the form of a Tempest2400 BeltStation. The MasterBelt can be paired with any standard Tempest2400 CP-222 two-channel BeltStation to create a full-featured two-channel system in the 2.4 GHz band. The MasterBelt itself also functions as a BeltStation allowing up to six full-duplex wireless users to be in communications.

Designed to be comfortable, rugged and robust, the MasterBelt Station and all Tempest BeltStations can operate in harsh weather conditions and are protected by a durable, weather-resistant ABS co-polymer blend with a high performance polyurethane overmold. The MasterBelt is provided with a rechargeable Li-Polymer battery capable of up to eight hours of operation or can be powered by three Standard AA Alkaline batteries as backup, providing four hours of operations.

“The Tempest2400 system has proven itself as the “go-to” communications solution for remote productions operating interference-free even when other wireless devices are in the same vicinity,” says Craig Frederickson, Clear-Com wireless product manager. “The MasterBelt is the latest development in the Tempest2400 line, giving broadcasters an even more flexible alternative for mobile productions, such as reality TV, sports sideline communications or ENG, where a stationary BaseStation is not desirable, feasible or optimal.”

Tempest2400 operates in 80MHz of spectrum in the 2.4GHz ISM frequency band. Tempest wireless systems will not interfere with traditional wireless microphone, IFB or in-ear monitor systems that operate in the UHF TV band. Because of Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, the Tempest system does not compete with signals from other 2.4 GHz wireless devices, minimizing frequency coordination and enabling flawless performance. Further, with state-of-the-art Redundant Data Transmit (2xTX), which sends each packet of audio data twice on different frequencies, the system ensures uninterrupted audio communications.

Similar to all Tempest systems the Tempest MasterBelt offers three modes of operations: Normal, Shared and Split. Because the MasterBelt can also function as a BeltStation, up to six full-duplex wireless users can be in communication in Normal mode. In Shared mode, an unlimited number of wireless users can listen while five have PTT capability. In Split mode, four wireless users are full-duplex talk while an unlimited number may listen. The ‘fifth user slot’ is an unlimited single-channel shared between the users with momentary talk buttons only.
