DK-Technologies Sells First Multi-Channel Waveform Monitors

Visions, the largest independent Outside Broadcast facilities company in the UK, has taken delivery of the first batch of award-winning PT0760M Multi-channel Video Waveform Monitors to roll off the DK-Technologies production line in Denmark.

Although not officially due to ship until August, six of the units – literally serial numbered one to six – were rushed through the production process ahead of schedule so that Visions could use them for its coverage of Wimbledon 2008. Within hours of Rafael Nadal’s epic victory over Roger Federer, the units were being packed up for an epic of their own – the journey to Beijing, where they played a vital role in capturing the Olympics for US broadcaster NBC.

Visions Technical Director Rob Newton, who spent two weeks in China overseeing the broadcasts, says: “The DK units proved to be incredibly reliable and we had absolutely no problems with them, which is always a good sign for the future of such a new piece of technology. Our engineers really liked them and although we were only using a fraction of their functionality, they turned out to be really useful additions to our equipment list.? more

Focusrite Buys Second Prism Sound dScope

The speed and accuracy of Prism Sound’s dScope Series III audio analyzer has led Focusrite Audio Engineering to install a second unit at its headquarters in Buckinghamshire.

Renowned for the audio fidelity of its professional audio products, Focusrite applies rigorous testing procedures to ensure that every product meets stringent quality control requirements. The company has been using dScope Series III audio analyzers for some years because the units provide such precise and reliable results.

Simon Jones, Focusrite’s R&D manager, says: “We use dScope Series III analyzers for both R&D and production line testing. At the moment our units are being employed across a wide range of products, including Firewire-based audio devices. dScope’s real-time FFT and signal display is superb, while its multi-tone analysis features save us a lot of time in production line testing.
