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.”

DPA Microphones Takes its Final Leap into the d:ep End

Company renames remaining mics in collection to reflect the popular ‘d:’ branding

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 18, 2013 – DPA Microphones is delighted to announce at the 135th International AES Convention (Booth 2551) that its 4060, 4080 and 4090 Miniature and 5100, 5006A, 5006-11A and 5015A Surround Microphones will be joining the ‘d:’ family of names. Building off the success of the company’s new “d:” branding, the current 4060, 4080 and 4090 Miniature Mics now fall into the d:screet™ Miniature Microphones group and the Five-channel surround solutions are henceforth known as the d:mension™ Surround Microphones.

DPA has also chosen to add the ever-popular 4066 and 4088 Miniature Headsets under the d:fine™ Headset Microphone category, and the mics will also receive an upgrade to coincide with the existing d:fines. Additionally, it’s new d:dicate™ Recording Microphone line combines the company’s best new and existing capsules and preamplifiers from the previous Reference Standard series.

“A few years ago, we decided to change the names of our new products to make them more recognizable and easy to remember,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “In the past, our products were branded with numbers, which were difficult to understand and remember unless you were a DPA aficionado. We wanted names that were more meaningful and more interesting. After some brainstorming, we decided on the ‘d:’ (colon) names. Starting with a ‘d’ made it easier to remember as it connects the mics to the DPA name, and leaving out the second letter gave it a graphic element that worked well with our new DPA design.”

Announced at DPA Microphones’ recent Partner Conference at the DPA Microphones Denmark headquarters, the unveiling of the new d:screet Miniature Microphone and d:mension Surround Microphone names is another step in the company’s plans for full “d:” branding. Each product category has been carefully planned out by the DPA Microphones team.

With the company’s 5100, 5006A, 5006-11A and 5015A Surround Microphone now grouped together under the d:mension Surround Microphone line, customers can easily swap between capsules and boom options. Comprised of the 4080 Miniature Cardioid Lavalier, as well as the 4060 and 4090 Omnidirectional Hi-Sens Microphones, the d:screet line also includes the company’s new 4098 Podium Microphones announced earlier this year.

“We found words starting with the letter ‘d’ that fit the significance to the product line,” continues Poulsen. “For instance, people are devoted to their instrument and to their sound, therefore our d:vote Instrument Microphones. The d:fine name was selected as we felt the microphone would define a new generation of headsets. The d:facto because the mic sets a new standard within vocal microphones and d:dicate for people who are dedicated to superior sound. Each name was introduced as there was significant updates within each product group.”

Now known as the DPA d:mension Surround Microphone, the 5100 is a compact microphone that provides users with ease of use and stunning sound quality. It is ideal for bringing truly engaging surround ambience to sport events, documentaries and other applications that especially require HDTV production. The d:mension 5006A, 5006-11A and 5015A are complete Surround Kits with five carefully factory-matched d:dicate microphones. The 5006A kit features d:dicate 4006A omni mics exclusively, while the 5006-11A is made up of a combination of the 4006A omni and 4011A cardioids mics and the 5015A is comprised of the 4015 wide cardioids.

Originally designed for use with wireless systems in theater, television and close-miked instrument applications, the d:screet 4060 capsule is highly unobtrusive, which lends itself to an exceedingly accurate omnidirectional pattern. Also a member of the d:screet family, the d:screet 4080 is well suited for broadcast, conference and other live performances in the studio or in the field. It is acoustically pre-equalized, which makes the voice more distinguishable and improves speech intelligibility.

The DPA d:screet 4090 is a high-quality omnidirectional condenser microphone with a uniquely natural and open sound, that is suitable for instrument miking applications in the studio or on the stage. Due to its remarkably linear frequency response in the 20 Hz to 20 kHz range, sound system engineers can also use the 4090 for sound system alignment, testing and tuning.

Additionally, the 4066 and 4088 Headset Microphones are being absorbed into the d:fine category while the company’s existing Reference Standard Microphones, new modular MMC4018 Supercardioid Capsule and well-known MMC4007 High-SPL Omnidirectional Capsule are now in the d:dicate line.

ABOUT DPA:
DPA Microphones is the leading Danish Professional Audio manufacturer of high-quality condenser microphone solutions for professional applications. DPA’s ultimate goal is to always provide its customers with the absolute finest possible microphone solutions for all its markets, which include live sound, installation, recording, theatre and broadcast.

The Music Producers Guild Gets BPI and AIM Backing For Its Broadcast WAV Initiative

Just months after officially launching its ‘ISRC in Broadcast WAV’ initiative, the Music Producers Guild has received the support of the BPI and AIM, two trade bodies representing the music industry. Both have agreed to adopt Broadcast WAV as standard.

“We are really delighted to have the support of the BPI and AIM,” says Alchemy Mastering’s Barry Grint, who has led the MPG ISRC campaign. “This is fantastic news for all recording artists and copyright owners because adopting Broadcast WAV will make file identification and content tracking much easier and more accurate. It will also help royalty agencies develop more precise systems for payments, thereby safeguarding the incomes of artists and copyright owners when their recordings are played on air.”

With two major UK music industry organisations now firmly behind the new format – and with a number of mastering hardware equipment manufactures also on-board – the Music Producers Guild believes it is only a matter of time before Broadcast WAV is adopted by the music industry world-wide.

“WAV is the standard format for music interchange in the production process, but MPG members were frustrated that there was no method of embedding industry standard ISRC information in the format to enable more accurate identification the content of files,” Grint explains. “Working in collaboration with the European Broadcasting Union, which created a professional version of the WAV format called Broadcast WAV, we have been able to ensure the carriage of ISRC information in this type of file, thus removing the need for it to be re-entered and reducing the opportunity for error.”

The inherent good sense of using Broadcast WAV is now being recognised.

BPI Chief Executive Geoff Taylor says: “BPI is pleased to support this MPG initiative and we’ll be encouraging our members to adopt Broadcast WAV as a standard. By incorporating ISRC data into the WAV file, we can provide a more accurate and reliable means of identifying recordings when they are exchanged between labels and studios.”

James Farrelly, membership manager of AIM, adds: “In an environment where labels of all sizes now understand that effective metadata management is the key to maximising revenue from their master rights, the work MPG is doing to adapt the BWF format will result in a clearer, more accurate approach to identifying tracks and minimising potential mis-allocation of income from repertoire usage. AIM is proud to support this initiative and looks forward to working with the MPG and their partners to build industry wide adoption of the format.”

The MPG is now planning to address mastering engineers by holding a seminar to demonstrate the ease with which Broadcast WAV can be implemented. This will take place in London in early November (see www.mpg.org.uk for more details).

“For engineers using Magix/Sequioa or Merging/Pyramix, switching to Broadcast WAV will simply involve a software upgrade as both of these workstation manufacturers are already backing the Broadcast WAV initiative, ” Grint explains. “Now that this issue is higher up the priority list, we hope other manufacturers will quickly follow their lead.”

Clear-Com Tempest Line Extender Wins “STAR” Award from Editors of TV Technology Europe

ALAMEDA, CA, SEPTEMBER 30, 2013 – Clear-Com® is pleased to announce that its Tempest CCT-RT-EX Remote Line Extender is the recipient of a prestigious 2013 STAR Award (Superior Technology Award Recipient), which was presented by the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2013 IBC convention in Amsterdam.

The STAR Award is designed to celebrate and showcase technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe’s editor reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winners.

“STAR Awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way,” says Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe. “This year in particular we also looked for smaller incremental improvements in established products, as these improvements generally reflect a manufacturer responding to customer input, a laudable thing. The products selected help advance the industry; some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and others because they were just cool products.”

Shown for the first time at IBC, the new Tempest CCT-RT-EX Remote Transceiver Line Extender is used to increase the maximum distance between a Tempest BaseStation and the Remote Antenna Transceiver. The CCT-RT-EX expands the distance of a BaseStation signal to a remote antenna by as much as 914 meters (3,000 feet) with one Line Extender or 609 meters (2,000 feet) per Line Extender if using more than one Line Extender. A total of three Line Extenders can be connected to provide total coverage of up to 2286 meters (7,500 feet). These solutions further enhance the system’s application for users requiring ultra-portable wireless communications in RF-rich environments.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized by TV Technology Europe, a prestigious industry publication, for this innovative product for the professional broadcast industry,” says Judy Cheng, Director of Global Marketing, Clear-Com. “The CCT-RT-EX Line Extender provides the extra coverage required, particularly on large productions to ensure that critical directives are heard regardless of location in a venue/facility.
