ADRIAN BELEW CENTERS NEW STUDIO ON THE METRIC HALO ULN-8 INTERFACE

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: Adrian Belew is a guitar virtuoso without peer. The flame of his long career, which produced enduring magic with Frank Zappa, Talking Heads, and David Bowie in front of thirty years at the head of foundational progressive rock band King Crimson, burns as brightly now as it ever has. Respected for his ability to produce tones and sounds with a guitar that bear no resemblance to the instrument’s usual output, Belew draws crowds around the world with his independent work. He recently completed a home studio, centered on a pair of eight-channel Metric Halo ULN-8 interfaces with studio-grade mic preamps, where he is currently recording his forthcoming album.

UDC Touch

High Resolution Systems LLC will be showcasing its new line of UDC-Touch touchscreens in the lower South Hall at NAB 2011 (Booth SL5622). The company will be sharing the booth with PI Engineering.

UDC-Touch is a Windows-Embedded based touchscreen solution for device control. At the heart of the system is High Resolution’s UDC (Universal Device Control) software, which communicates with the devices to be controlled; multiple 7 or 10-inch touchscreen interfaces can be located in different areas and access the centralized UDC system.

“UDC-Touch uses our web server feature, but we’ve developed a special app that enables the touchscreens to be faster and more economical than a web browser,” says sales engineer Drew Taylor, “Another great thing about our embedded touchscreens is that there is no moving parts to them”.
