Junger Audio Brings Down The Cost Of Live Production

Those smart guys at Junger AudioEvery visitor at every show is always on the lookout for ways of saving money and making life easier without compromising the standards that they work to.

Those smart guys at Junger Audio spent their booth time demonstrating just how this could be achieved in Live production using the auto levelling, auto loudness control, auto upmix, adaptive EQ and audio-over-IP in the D*AP range while maintaining high quality, consistent and coherent audio no matter what the operator skills and manning levels.

Dante Format Converters – A New Venture For Salzbrenner Media

Dante Format Converters - A New Venture For Salzbrenner MediaThe chat on the Salzbrenner media booth was all about the new NIO xcel range of professional Dante interfaces.

Two of the new units provide I/O for AES3 and another has 8 mic inputs with 4 splits, 8 line inputs and 4 line outputs. All the devices include filters and a mix function and they’re a doddle to configure via a web browser.

NIO xcel series is rugged in design and built for all the rough and tumble of mobile applications. You’ll find they’re indispensable for Broadcast derigs, sound reinforcement and installation and they’re just as useful in studio facilities where they can be stacked or mounted in 19″ racks. 

Directout Updates MADI-to-AOIP Bridge

Directout Updates MADI-to-AOIP BridgeVisitors from Broadcast, Live and Studio were seen in their droves on the DirectOut booth. They’d come to see the updated MONTONE.42 MADI-to-Ravenna bridge. MONTONE.42 supports 32 Ravenna and AES67 compliant streams and the internal matrix handles 256 network and 256 MADI I/O channels. There are four MADI ports with a wide choice of physical interfaces and two gigabit network ports. The powerful 1024×1024 MADI router M.1k2 has also had an update making it a more secure and resilient investment for any system designer. It now supports SNMP, Simple Network Management Protocol, for monitoring essential device information such as power supply, temperature and MADI signal/synchronisation status.
