NUGEN Audio Launches Stereopack

Complete Toolset for Stereo Image Enhancement and Manipulation

LEEDS, U.K. — Jan. 14, 2014 — NUGEN Audio, creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, today announced the launch of Stereopack, a complete toolset for stereo image enhancement and manipulation including expansion, positioning, and low-frequency control. Stereopack is designed to offer maximum flexibility in a highly accessible and configurable combination of powerful tools.

“Stereopack gives audio professionals everything they need to create the big sound they’re striving for, rapidly and intuitively,” said Jon Schorah, creative director, NUGEN Audio. “They can gain absolute control of their stereo panorama with no unwanted artifacts and the assurance of superb mono compatibility, without interrupting the flow of their creative process.”

With Stereopack, users can naturally widen or reduce the stereo image, focus and define low frequencies, and move specific captured spectra within the stereo soundfield. Each Stereopack component integrates advanced audio analysis feedback directly into the user interface, delivering intuitive control of all main parameters with clear and immediate dynamic feedback. All three plug-ins are highly mono-compatible, using unique algorithms that maintain the original character of the source audio without introducing any strange phase, reverb, or delay-related artifacts. Each tool is compatible with 64-bit OSX, AAX (32- and 64-bit), and the latest VST3 standards.

One component of Stereopack, Stereoizer, is a high-specification stereo image manipulation tool suitable for natural expansion, reduction, and introduction of stereo width at any stage of the audio production process. Developed for and tested by professional audio engineers, Stereoizer adds natural-sounding width and depth to any mono or stereo audio recording, leaving the inherent character of the original source intact.

Another Stereopack tool is the Monofilter plug-in, which enables users to align and balance low frequencies with a minimum of effort to create solid, natural-sounding bass. With Monofilter, users can define the center of the bass, which can be easily lost through stereo effects processing, synth sound generation, unwanted phase inconsistencies, and live recording mic bleed. The plug-in provides clear control over stereo spread, transition, and phase alignment, with a unique interface that delivers clear and exacting visual feedback. The result is a bass sound that is more focused and better defined.

The third tool in the Stereopack bundle is Stereoplacer, an advanced fine-tune parametric balancing control tool that allows users to tune each band to specific frequencies and move the frequency content around in the stereo sound stage. Stereoplacer maintains the character of the original sounds while the user chooses the position, providing fully adjustable curves (bell, high and low shelving, and additional linked-harmonic overtones). These characteristics enable the user to redistribute stereo information with subtlety or powerfully correct signals — even moving hard-panned frequencies from one side to the other — without affecting the overall level balance of the material.

More information about Stereopack and other NUGEN Audio products is available at www.nugenaudio.com.

New WohlerDPP, Powered by RadiantGrid(TM), Enables Rapid Repackaging of File-Based Media for Delivery to U.K. Broadcasters

New WohlerDPP, Powered by RadiantGrid(TM), Enables Rapid Repackaging of File-Based Media for Delivery to U.K. Broadcasters

Wohler Solution Is First to Address Full DPP Delivery Workflow

SAN FRANCISCO — Jan. 14, 2014 — Addressing plans by major U.K. broadcasters to require that file-based deliverables be compliant with the new Digital Production Partnership (DPP) standard, Wohler Technologies today announced the release of WohlerDPP, powered by RadiantGrid(TM). Marking the first in a series of new products, this turnkey solution leverages Wohler’s RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) to accelerate repackaging and delivery of file-based content in the AS-11 UKDPP file format specified by the DPP standard.

“Within less than a year, postproduction houses and other media facilities across the world who deliver programming to leading U.K. broadcasters will be required to package file-based content in accordance with DPP specifications,” said Craig Newbury, vice president of sales for the Wohler RadiantGrid business line. “As this requirement becomes a reality, WohlerDPP is the first product to streamline the entire DPP delivery workflow. By enabling and automating DPP packaging and compliance assurance, this powerful solution dramatically increases efficiency, saves our customers money, and reduces errors in the provision of DPP deliverables.”

The DPP is an initiative formed jointly by the U.K.’s public service broadcasters to help producers and broadcasters maximize the potential benefits of digital television production. The DPP leads the standardization of technical and metadata requirements within the U.K. broadcast industry to ensure that digital video content can be distributed easily and cost-effectively between content providers and content broadcasters.

By October 2014, broadcasters will require use of the group’s standard for file-based deliverables, and WohlerDPP will make it easy for content creators to get on board. The solution offers an intuitive, user-driven, data-driven interface for submitting details of the DPP deliverable — including source assets, segment timecodes, gamut legalization, loudness processing, and descriptive metadata. It then performs all asset preparation, ident rendering, assembly, transcoding, and metadata insertion required to produce a fully prepared AS-11 UKDPP MXF file. WohlerDPP can also create broadcaster-specific “sidecar” metadata files as required.

WohlerDPP includes the new RadiantGrid hardware platform, as well as the DPP Expert System(TM) interface, preconfigured DPP compliance and transcoding profiles, and preconfigured DPP-compliant lineup and slate assets.

Further information about the RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform and other RadiantGrid solutions is available at www.wohler.com. Details about the WohlerDPP product can be found at www.deliverdpp.com.

LENEXA, Kan. — Jan. 8, 2014 — LynTec, a leading manufacturer of customized electrical power control for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, today announced that the company’s RPCR remotely controlled relay panel was named as one of Sound & Video Contractor’s (SVC) 2013 Most Innovative Products.

BenQ Adds New BE Light, Compasso and Hatha LED Lighting Fixtures to QisDesign Luxury Line

Premium LED Lamps Blend Sophisticated Design and Innovative Technology to Provide Sensory-Rich Experiences

LAS VEGAS, 2014 International CES — Jan. 7, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations, announced today the addition of three new elegant designs to its QisDesign brand of premium LED lighting fixtures. The BE Light, now available in stylish black, and the entirely new Compasso and Hatha bring contemporary designs inspired by the world around them to deliver sensory-rich lighting experiences with interactive features that brighten any environment.

“BenQ’s new QisDesign premium light fixtures bring a new level of sophistication to LED lighting,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “The collection’s newest additions blend form and function by combining innovative LED technology with inspired designs. They are made to complement any setting, stimulate the imagination, and provide significant energy savings to users.”

The entire QisDesign collection offers table, floor, wall, and suspension lamps that mimic the real-life wonder of a variety of life forms. The new models include:

BE Light: With its clever hinge design, the BE Light can be extended or folded to make efficient use of desk or floor space. The LED lamp’s refined new metallic black finish further gives the light a stylish and sophisticated look. By capturing the inspiration from origami, the ancient art of folding flat sheets of paper into sculpted three-dimensional forms, the BE Light desk lamp provides both adjustable desk lighting and the ability to be contracted into a flat, seamless surface of only 0.75 inches, keeping desks and tables spacious and clutter-free. As with BenQ’s entire line of QisDesign lamps, the BE Light uses light guide technology to evenly distribute its warm, white LED light without the slightest amount of glare from its light source. To adjust brightness and light intensity, users simply place their finger on the touch-sensitive power key, which automatically fades-in or dims down the light to provide just the right glow for any lighting situation. Also available as a floor lamp, BenQ’s BE Light features SMT LEDs for longer lasting brightness than regular LED light sources. Available now, the BE Light Table Lamp retails for $550, while the BE Light Floor Lamp has an MSRP of $980.

Compasso: Inspired by the clear-cut precision of a geometry compass, the Compasso Light has been engineered for flexibility to allow users to customize the warm white LED light using the lamp’s touch dimmer switch. For further lighting comfort, Compasso’s sliding track along the lamp’s arm lets consumers adjust the lamp to any height or placement preference — even 360 degrees via the unit’s swivel base. Constructed using a combination of rubber, aluminum, zinc alloy, and LED light guide technology, the Compasso Light produces an even distribution of abundant light while consuming a maximum of only 12W of power. The result is a mixture of soft and ample light for illuminating any living space or work environment without compromising the lifestyle of design and energy-conscious consumers. The Compasso is available now at an MSRP of $680.

Hatha: With a flexible spine embedded into a rubber lamp shell, the new Hatha Light mimics the bend of the human body, allowing users to freely adjust the lamp to different angles and heights to meet their specific needs. Adopted with high power LEDs and lens design, the Hatha Light delivers sufficient brightness for reading use, and offers high light efficiency. The Hatha Light is available and retails for $450.

Information on the full line of QisDesign LED Lighting fixtures is available at www.QisDesign.com.

BenQ Takes Entertainment and Portability to a Whole New Level With New GP20 Ultra-Lite LED Projector

For the Home or Office, HD-Ready Projector Supports MHL-Equipped Smart Devices for Optimized Delivery of Mobile Entertainment

LAS VEGAS, 2014 International CES — Jan. 7, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today unveiled the latest addition to its popular mini projector series: the BenQ Ultra-Lite GP20. Designed to provide enjoyment anywhere in the home or enhance presentations in the office, the easy-to-use, portable GP20 brings higher brightness and Colorific(TM) image quality to the mini projector series. In addition, it introduces powerful features such as mobile high-definition link (MHL) connectivity and PC-less projection.

Building on the success of the GP2 mini projector, the GP20 offers the perfect balance of size and performance. While larger than the palm-sized GP2, the 720p GP20 Projector maintains its portability while offering a higher brightness of 500 ANSI lumens and native WXGA (1280×800) resolution, with support for resolutions up to UXGA (1600×1200). With new features including mirroring for MHL-equipped devices, the GP20 enables easy notebook PC, cable, console gaming, or smart device connection for transferring small-screen content directly to the projector from any portable device.

In addition, the GP20 offers simple plug-and-play and wireless streaming to allow users to share HD-quality presentations, movies, videos, photos, and games on a display up to 240 inches. For a big viewing experience in tiny spaces, the GP20 Projector provides a display of 60 inches at distances down to 1.5 meters. Audio can be played through the unit’s two built-in 3-W SRS speakers or through external speakers via the Audio Out port.

The GP20 Projector is packed with multimedia connectivity including USB and SD card viewers and a document viewer for Microsoft(R) Office and PDF documents. A plug-and-play USB feature allows for a PC-less experience. Users simply save content to a USB thumb drive, plug the drive into the projector, and project the content without the need for a PC or file conversion. In addition, a USB file transfer function lets users store their multimedia files to the unit’s 2GB on-board memory.

Based on high-efficiency 3LED illumination and DLP(R) projection technology, the GP20 projector is designed to produce exceptional picture quality, providing users with clearer, brighter, and more vivid Colorific images without relying on traditional projection lamps. This allows users to enjoy the ultra-lite projector without worrying about issues such as decreasing brightness, color fading, or the expense of lamp replacement.

“The GP20 Projector brings a host of new capabilities for an exceptional viewing experience, whether you are entertaining the family at home or making a presentation in the office,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “In addition to its portability and increased brightness, the ultra-lite projector offers an intuitive interface and the ability to enjoy cloud-based content with great ease. All of this is complemented by an elegant design and its new remote simplifies the control experience.”

The BenQ Ultra-Lite GP20 is available now at an MSRP of $1,099. Information on the GP20 and the full line of BenQ products is available at http://www.BenQ.com.
