HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – APRIL 2011: Sterling Winfield gained notoriety and respect early in his career for his contribution to Pantera’s 1994, Grammy-nominated release, Far Beyond Driven. He’s been on the first-call list ever since, and his production and engineering work with Mercyful Fate, King Diamond, Pantera, Damageplan, Hellyeah, and many others has earned his work four Grammy-nominations, two RIAA-certified platinum releases, and five RIAA-certified gold releases. Among his favorite tools is Metric Halo’s ChannelStrip plug-in, both for its decidedly “undigital” sound and for its inspiration-fueling workflow. He used ChannelStrip prodigiously on Hellyeah’s recent Stampede, which debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200 in July of 2010.

Not surprisingly, the vocals of Mudvayne frontman Chad Gray capture the listener’s attention on Stampede, and Winfield was careful to record it to maximal effect. Depending on how melodic or growling a particular lyric was, Winfield used one of two more

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

New ClearVIEW HD-20 Features “True Native HD Imaging?

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,? 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
