Keyframe Post-turned-Bionic Media (New York City, www.bionic.tv) has expanded its space to include nine edit suites with Avid Media Composer, Symphony and Xpress Pro; three audio mix suites (all with dedicated voice-over booths and surround/HD-ready); and a large live recording room. Each audio room offers Digidesign’s ICON, making Bionic Media one of the first to purchase the console after the product’s NAB 2004 debut.
“At NAB, I wanted to walk out of the convention center with ICON under my arm,” said Bionic senior audio engineer Tim Wagner with a laugh. “It’s amazing that they were able to wrap so much functionality and technology in such an attractive package. This is a piece of hardware that is going to change the way everyone mixes.” One day after ICON was installed, senior engineer Brian Rund mixed a half-hour show for ESPN.
