Euphonix announced record orders for the second quarter of 2005 boosted by a lively broadcast market and by the introduction of the System 5-MC and MC DAW Controllers.
The quarter kicked of with the first two orders for the System 5-MC DAW Controller, a dual-operator dubbing system going to John Ross’s new facility in Hollywood for controlling several Nuendo and Pro Tools DAWs, and the first European system to Studio L’Equipe in Belgium controlling Pyramix and Pro Tools. Other orders include a System 5-MC and an MC for the Robert E. Nims Center for Entertainment Arts and Multi-Media Technology affiliated with University of New Orleans.
On the broadcast side in the USA, NBC placed an order for a System 5-BP and a Max Air console for the ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ show in Burbank. This follows the successful installation of three System 5 consoles for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, also on the Burbank lot. In New York, NBC’s Saturday Night Live placed an order for a System 5-BP giving Euphonix audio consoles a strong presence in NBC’s late night line up. Amongst other USA broadcast sales, AARP in Washington ordered two Max Airs and Dole Foods in LA ordered a System 5-B for their on-air operations joining a growing number of corporate clients who now manage their own production facilities based around Euphonix audio consoles.
Internationally, Euphonix has benefited from a stronger international profile with a number of orders from across the globe. In China, CCTV added a Max Air and System 5-B to their existing eight Euphonix on-air mixing systems. In addition, regional Chinese stations in Zhejian and Jiangsu installed Max Airs. European sales are surging ahead with a Euphonix System 5-B on-air console for TVN’s OB truck in Poland and a third System 5-BP for a MediaPro remote in Spain. Sky TV ordered a Max Air in Sydney. Dubbing Brothers in Paris ordered two System 5-P audio post consoles. In Japan the System 5-P is very popular in audio post with repeat orders from NHK and TOA. Korean orders include live System 5-BP consoles for the Unification Church and Seong Nam Culture & Arts Center in Seoul.
Said Russell Waite, Euphonix’ executive vice president, world wide sales: “This growth in sales activity comes as a confirmation that we are on the right track in all areas of the company. This is not just about sales but also about product development, our manufacturing and of course our after-sales support. Looking after our clients and giving them products that can improve their workflow, increase their productivity and enhance their shows is what we dedicate ourselves to and these results really confirm our direction.”
