IBC 2009 – A Successful Show For Sonifex
17th September 2009
Well another IBC is over and now that the dust has settled we’ve had time to reflect on what was, it has to be said, an excellent exhibition. Initially we were nervous that there would be quite a shortfall in the number of visitors and for the show itself there was a slight reduction, with attendance 7% lower than for 2008. However, on the Sonifex stand we defied the trend with a 10% increase in the number of visitors.
We feel that that’s a fair reflection of the effort that was put into the show by Sonifex and also the fact that we had so many new products to display.
If you came to the stand, we’d like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to demonstrate the new product lines. If you weren’t able to make it to the show or didn’t have time to visit our stand, then an outline of the five new product ranges is given below.
Information on the new products is available on the Sonifex website, but if you need a CD or catalogue update, please contact us for a copy – we can send these to you.
The new ranges are the S1 Radio Broadcast Mixer; Reference Monitor Meters; Reference Monitor Controllers; Redbox Video Embedders & De-Embedders and some openGear rack cards. All of these products, together with 2 new Redbox audio products, will be available for release over the next 6 months. For more accurate release dates of each product, please check the particular product page on the website.
S1 Digital/Analogue Radio Broadcast Mixer
The new Sonifex S1 mixer is a high performance compact, low cost, fixed format mixing console designed for on-air radio use. It can be fitted flush into a desk-top or can be rack-mounted by the addition of optional rack ears. It has an amazing feature set and offers a proper broadcast solution to community, educational and student radio stations that need a versatile, reliable radio broadcast mixer. It has a ‘no compromise on quality’ approach with excellent mic amps, comprehensive facilities & simple, reliable operation.Reference Monitor
The new Reference Monitor Meters are a range of three freestanding and five 1U rack-mount precision meters offering accurate, high resolution metering of between 1 and 4 stereo audio sources. Each stereo source is auto-switching between either analogue or digital AES/EBU format with sample rates up to 192kHz accepted.
Reference Monitor Controllers
The new Reference Monitor Controllers are a range of four 1U rack-mount audio production control units, for providing source selection, volume, DIM and CUT controls for external analogue monitors, together with light controls for the Sonifex SignalLED range of studio signs, or similar.Redbox Video Embedders & De-
These new video Redboxes use latest technology components to offer embedding and de-embedding for analogue and digital audio signals into and out of all 3G, HD and SD-SDI video signals, respectively. With simple front panel controls, standard BNC connectivity and remote operation on serial and ethernet ports, they offer rack-mount solutions for audio embedding and de-embedding.
openGear is an open-architecture rack system developed by Ross Video, a leader in video technologies, to provide a standard rack-based platform with control via TCP/IP connectivity using a free application called Dashboard. Sonifex openGear cards include 4 versions of an 8 output digital audio distribution amplifier, for unbalanced and balanced audio, with and without sample rate conversion.
In addition to the above there are two new Redbox products:
Redbox RB-DD4 4 Channel Digital Audio Delay
The new RB-DD4 4 channel digital audio delay allows you to delay 4 mono channels of audio independently or together. Each channel delay is user selectable from multiples of common video frame rates, or a user defined value set via the serial interface. The unit is perfect for synchronizing audio to video which has been delayed by processing latency.
Redbox RB-DMX4 4 x 4 Channel Digital Audio Mixer/Router
The new RB-DMX4 is a digital mixer capable of mixing or routing 4 mono input channels into 4 mono outputs, or 2 stereo inputs into 2 stereo outputs. The inputs are sample rate converted to allow sources of different sample rates to be mixed. The flexible Mix Matrix allows for a wide variety of mixing options and creativity, using 4 blocks of 4 way DIPswitches to select which inputs are mixed or routed to which outputs.
