Sweden’s Anaview Invests In A Prism Sound dScope Series III Audio Analyzer

Anaview AB, a Swedish technology house that specialises in providing OEM electronics for the audio industry, is the latest European company to purchase a dScope Series III analogue and digital audio analyser from Prism Sound.

Anaview is using its dScope Series III for testing distortion, bandwidth, noise and multi-tone intermodulation products in the development of switch mode amplifiers. It’s an exacting task.

“Perceived sound quality is a very complex topic,? comments Anaview’s CEO Patrik Bostrom. “An amplifier that performs well on the typically presented graphs does not necessarily sound good. In order to find a way to methodically design a good sounding amplifier one has to have a measurement system where the input signal and the performed measurements can be fully controlled by the user. For example, the multi-tone modulation is more important than THD at one frequency. The ability afforded by dScope to design our own test more

CORNERSTONE CHURCH GOES MULTI-CAMPUS WITH FOR-A HVS-300HS HD/SD DIGITAL VIDEO SWITCHER

CYPRESS, CALIF. – Cornerstone Community Church in Orangeburg, SC installed the FOR-A HVS-300HS HD/SD Digital Video Switcher this past spring to facilitate video production across the church’s new satellite campuses. About a year ago, the lead pastor at Cornerstone put the wheels in motion to begin planting additional campuses to become a multi-site church. One additional campus is now open to complement the 1,100-seat main campus and a second satellite campus is in the planning stages.
