Euphonix—a leading manufacturer of large-format digital audio consoles, media controllers, and peripherals based in Palo Alto, Calif.—announced that its professional products division had continued strong sales in the fourth quarter, with the company posting its best annual revenues in more than 10 years.
Key sales included multiple dual-operator System 5 film mixing systems to Todd-AO Hollywood, as well as individual System 5 orders for Japan’s Shochiku Pictures and TV Audio Post house, Yomiuri Eizo. Broadcast consoles sales were also strong with orders from CBC-Vancouver and Zhejiang TV in China, as well as from both Univision and Telemundo in Puerto Rico.

Euphonix CEO Martin Kloiber (pictured) says he is delighted with the results. "In a period of difficult economic times, it is refreshing to see that, as a brand, Euphonix has managed to satisfy a growing need for professional mixing consoles and controllers of the highest quality. Adjustments in our sales and service structure implemented before the economic downturn are now paying off and are directly responsible for our current strong market position. As always, our customer service is very highly rated and our sales team enjoys new efficiencies that greatly improve the sales experience. It is a very rewarding moment when the years of collective effort break open market barriers in a way that EuCon has for Euphonix.”
Euphonix credits widespread acceptance of the EuCon protocol by many other audio manufacturers with helping sales. “Each time a new manufacturer—such as Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU) or Metric Halo—adopts EuCon, the value of each client’s investment in our production solutions increases. "Many clients are initially exposed to EuCon as a result of our Artist Series media controllers’ success,” Kloiber adds. “We now see that exposure transitions to much wider application support within our professional line, which also uses EuCon control."
In order to build on its success, Euphonix also announced today that the company has signed a lease on a new corporate headquarters, engineering and manufacturing facility located in the Silicon Valley town of Mountain View, Calif. The new facility is significantly greener than the former location and provides a much needed increase in the amount of space for operations. The company says that it expects to move in May.
