SYMETRIX TO DISTRIBUTE AXIOMTEK TOUCH SCREEN PC FOR USE WITH SYMVUE

symvue_axiomtek.JPGSEATTLE, WASHINGTON – JULY 2009: Symetrix, a leading provider of audio processing solutions for the commercial, broadcast, and pro audio markets, has signed an agreement with Axiomtek to distribute the GOT-5100T-830 touch screen PC in the United States for use with SymNet’s groundbreaking SymVue real-time user interface technology. Although SymVue works simply and reliably with any PC or tablet running Windows Vista or XP, integrators will benefit from the new agreement with Axiomtek in two ways. First, ordering the touch screen PC right along with the SymNet equipment that it will operate makes life a little bit easier for busy integrators. Second, and perhaps more importantly, it takes the guesswork out of finding the ideal unit for most SymVue applications. The GOT-5100T-830 has been thoroughly vetted by Symetrix and deemed ideal for most audio installations. This agreement applies only to distribution in the US. more

stile_antico.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – JULY 2009: The awards and accolades earned by the work of Stile Antico would be an accomplishment for even a seasoned vocal ensemble, but their meteoric rise to fame in the classical music world makes their successes all the more impressive.

From there, the group’s debut disc on the harmonia mundi label earned a Grammy nomination, an appearance at number two in the Billboard Classical chart and a raft of superlative reviews. They have won both the Diapason d’Or and the Diapason D’Or de l’Année, the Choc du Monde de la Musique, and the Preis der Deustchen Schallplattenkritik.
