Directout Debut Anna-Lisa MADI Signal Analysis Software – 8.e85

ANNA-LISAIf there is one thing that’s got us jumping up and down with excitement it’s the IBC launch of the DirectOut ANNA-LISA software.

ANNA-LISA is a handheld MADI signal analyser and generator that has a simple traffic light display for onboard reporting of sample rate, channel format, electrical level, eye pattern and MADI spec conformity.

What’s making us smile is the additional and more in depth analysis that is available as an app for Android devices. Functions include measurement display of the MADI inputs, logging of status/signal changes, configuration of the MADI outputs with electrical level adjustment, a BitScope and a fibre module readout. There’s also a level meter display for the input channels and channel based routing. It may not be the final, final version but it will deliver an awful lot of what MADI users have been waiting for.

And never fear iOS and Windows users, the software app will be available for you too in the not too distant future.

Other MADI products on the stand will be the MI6, a 16 channel MADI monitor mixer, MONTONE.42 MADI to Ravenna audio-over-IP bridge and the MADI.BRIDGE together with the ever popular ANDIAMO and EXBOX converter series and MA2CHBOX.XL reference class headphone and speaker monitor controller for MADI and AES.

Salzbrenner Polaris Evolution With 3d Audio Integration – 8.c80

Salzbrenner POLARISThe Salzbrenner POLARIS evolution has been updated since its appearance on the Aspen Media stand at BVE, to include 3D Audio integration for an immersive audio experience in theatre, film and live productions.

The Fraunhofer graphical user interface has been integrated into POLARIS Evolution allowing the mixer to display its own DSP channels and external equipment. 3-dimensional positioning or animation of audio objects can be undertaken in advance or during a live session.

POLARIS evolution is shortlisted for two awards, the Pro Sound Award for Broadcast Team of the Year and the AV Award for Audio Product of the Year. The awards’ ceremonies are in a couple of weeks so it’s well worth coming along to stand 8.C80 to find out what all the fuss is about.
