Martin Kloiber has been appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Technology Officer for Euphonix, underlining the importance of technology and strategic alliances to the company’s future product development roadmap. As EVP of Technology, Kloiber has been the driving force in the recently announced System 5-MC and the MC products, and alliances with Steinberg and Merging Technologies, according to a statement issued by the company.
With a degree in Music and Electronics, Kloiber worked as an independent music producer and engineer beginning in 1984, and was employed by the Austrian broadcaster ORF as an engineer from 1989 to 1991. Kloiber first became familiar with Euphonix as chief engineer for Soundproof Studios in 1991, when he selected a Euphonix CSII mixing system and then later a System 5 and the R-1 Recorder for the facility. He joined Euphonix in 2000 and was appointed EVP Technology and a member of the board in 2002.
The technology leadership at Euphonix that has kept the company ahead of the competition is what Kloiber is most proud of, “This business moves fast and it’s important that Euphonix keeps ahead of the curve. Listening to what our clients require is number one. It’s also important that in a networked world, products need to integrate together and so it’s my job to lay out how this should happen and make sure that we have good relationships with other complementary companies such as Steinberg, Merging, AMD and Apple. The new System 5-MC is a good example of how co-operation between several companies has enabled a very powerful solution to DAW control that could not have been achieved by Euphonix working on its own.”
