Miami was the latest stop on the Euphonix Max Air Broadcast Tour, where solutions to help broadcasters make the transition to digital were discussed at the local Society of Broadcast Engineer's (SBE) meeting by Euphonix representatives.
Euphonix has partnered with other audio and video manufacturers to create an integrated broadcast-operation vehicle that demonstrates the latest in digital-broadcast technology. Main sponsors include Accom, Miranda and Pioneer; other sponsors include 360 Systems, Clear-Com, DK-Audio America, Dolby Laboratories, Genelec, NVISION, TC Electronic, TerraSonde and Wohler Technologies. In some cases during the SBE presentations, the tour sponsors will be available to give a short presentation on the transition to digital along with Euphonix.
"This was our seventh presentation of our ideas about the transition to digital audio at SBE meetings," said Andrew Wild, VP of marketing at Euphonix. "We have about 20 more demonstrations planned across the U.S. through March, ending up at the NAB show in Las Vegas. We feel that Euphonix has a lot to offer broadcasters on the audio side of the equation."
The presentations to SBE meetings are part of the 37 U.S. city Max Air Broadcast Tour, offering engineers hands-on experience with new digital audio and video technology. The Max Air digital broadcast audio console is the centerpiece of the demonstration and was designed specifically for regional TV and on-air news applications. Max Air builds on the System 5's DSP, redundancy and I/O technology, while offering a new, lower cost-control surface.
Upcoming SBE meetings that Euphonix will attend include Birmingham (Wednesday, December 19, 2002); Nashville (Thursday, January 2, 2003); New Orleans (Monday, January 6, 2003); and Houston (Tuesday, January 14, 2003).
