Vaddio Unveils New HD Robotic PTZ Camera Comparable to 3-Chip Broadcast Camera

New ClearVIEW HD-20 Features “True Native HD Imagingâ€?

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (April 1, 2011) – Experience true 1080p HD video quality, without the artifacts and noise so many single chip HD cameras produce, with Vaddio’s newest high definition camera, the ClearVIEW HD-20. With a glass multi-element 20x motorized zoom lens and the newly designed precision slip-clutch robotics, the HD-20 provides fluid broadcast-quality motion control with smooth pan/tilt operation for accurate camera movement and control.

“The challenge with building the industry’s first True Single Chip HD PTZ camera was finding an imaging sensor that could natively display 1080p images,â€? explained President of Vaddio Rob Sheeley. “Because traditional CMOS pixels get really small in sensors larger than 2-megapixels, most video camera manufacturer’s stay with lower resolution sensors and scale a 720 image to 1080. By scaling the image, the pixel size remains large, while still reducing the noise and light more

MORE POWER TO THE API LUNCHBOX

new_lunchbox.JPG

JESSUP, MARYLAND: API’s groundbreaking and industry-leading lunchboxÂŽ frame for 500-Series modules just got better. The re-engineered lunchbox boasts many improvements, including an increased power supply current of 215mA per slot, the addition of DB-25 connectors for easy input and output connection and XLR access to channels 7 and 8 of the multi-pins. The revamped lunchbox also provides individual power rail LED indication and re-settable fuses on the power rail of each slot, so that one faulty module will not affect the others. The addition of a 100 VAC input voltage tap allows for wider international versatility.

Despite the numerous changes, the lunchbox’s basic design remains true to its roots. It still has six slots for standard API 500-Series modules, an internal phantom power supply and rugged steel chassis. For now, the new lunchbox remains priced at $499.

AUSTIN, TEXAS: “Indie. Innovative. Intelligent.” yellow DOG Studios’ slogan is as true as a slogan can be. A place that artists as diverse as Brandon Jenkins, SQUINT, Pine Top Perkins, Mike Kelly, Green Day and Cody Canada have recently called home, yellow DOG Studios possesses the equipment, staff and the environment to produce high-quality recordings. Its Austin, location has great live and control rooms along with various vintage and boutique microphones, outboard pieces, guitars, amplifiers and even an API 1608. But having just one API recording console wasn’t enough for yellow DOG. Earlier this year, the recording facility commissioned a second 32-channel 1608 desk, and had it delivered earlier this month.

“I think the industry standard is to have different consoles in each room of a facility,” said studio co-owner and producer/arranger Ed Robinson, “but we decided to cut against the more
