PESA’s Enterprise Audio Routing System changes the landscape of how Distributed Audio Routing Systems work

Huntsville, Alabama – March 7, 2011 –PESA, a 38 year veteran of U.S. manufactured high-definition video and audio signal distribution solutions will unveil its new Cheetah Enterprise Audio Routing System (EARS) architecture at NAB 2011. Based on PESA’s award winning DRS Audio Distributed Routing System, the new Cheetah DRS-EARS is a third generation system that can now be configured up to a massive 6144 X 6144 and beyond. The Cheetah DRS-EARS revolutionizes the way you experience audio distribution by removing the boundaries between mixed signal formats. The Cheetah DRS-EARS doesn’t just route the content you own, it delivers it anywhere and any way you want it. Ideal for facilities such as cable head ends, cable and broadcast networks, satellite facilities, telecom companies, and corporate facilities, the new Cheetah DRS-EARS allows users to integrate AES/EBU, Analog Audio, MADI and Time Code all within one distributed system.

Audinate’s Dante Technology Graduates to Millikin University

Portland, OR-March 7, 2011-For over 100 years, Millikin University, a private comprehensive university located in Decatur, Ill., has had a unique approach to education. It stresses performance learning, requiring students to practice their learning both inside and outside the classroom. This is just what Ronnie Dean, professor and technical director for the Music Industries Program, which includes Music Business and Commercial Music majors, does.

Dean, who has been with the school for 26 years, started in Nashville, Tenn., as a radio, television and recording engineer working at various studios on many different projects. In his spare time, he taught part-time at Belmont University, which is where he caught the teaching bug. When Millikin offered him a full-time position as technical director of their Music Industries Program, he packed his car and family and moved to Decatur.

For many years, he taught his students analog recording in more

Main Light Introduces the LED-Powered LightStar Fiber Optic Illuminator

The Main Light LightStar LED-powered fiber optic illuminatorMain Light Industries, who manufacture and rent a wide variety of fiber optic-based products, introduces the LED-powered LightStar™ fiber optic illuminator, part of DiCon Lighting’s FiberLamp product line. LightStar uses an innovative LED light engine comprised of Red, Green, Blue, and White LEDs for a broad spectrum of color choices as well as reducing the power draw and weight. A key feature of the LED-powered LightStar is that it produces an output comparable to, or greater than, a fiber optic illuminator using a 150-watt metal halide light source. In a white color mix, the LightStar is equivalent to the 150-watt metal halide powered illuminators. By using an LED light engine there is no transmission loss with a color filter, so in deep, saturated colors, the LightStar has a greater output that is equivalent to 250-watt illuminators. more

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – FEBRUARY 2011: On his latest album, 2010′s Look East, Jeff Harding refines his fluid guitar playing to build songs of transcendent beauty, measured out by thoughtful lyrics delivered with honesty and simplicity. The final product was mixed and mastered by Casey Wood (Randy Travis, Jimmy Buffett, George Strait) at The Insanery in Nashville, Tennessee with Harding using the new BOCK 251 studio condenser with a Pauly Superscreen pop filter to record all of the vocals in his project studio.

In anticipation of purchasing a new vocal mic, Harding did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions. “Since I knew I would be dropping a lot of money, I wanted to be careful,” he said. “I considered buying a vintage mic, but I was too scared by all the stories I heard about vintage mics that had lost their sound or had become more

BEN ARTHUR’S DUBWAY DAYS AND THE METRIC HALO ULN-8

ben_al_wes.JPG

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: Ben Arthur is a charismatic, self-made singer/songwriter who has released four critically-lauded albums and opened for such acts as Tori Amos, Bruce Hornsby, and the Dave Matthews Band. His knack for successful collaborations has earned him the friendship of many very talented musicians who tend to fly just under the radar of the mass media. That knack and those friendships will be put to the dramatic test on Dubway Days, a web-TV show – and possible Network TV show – that will air its pilot episode on February 14, 2011 at www.breakthruradio.com. It so happens that Ben Arthur is also an ardent Metric Halo user.

The tagline for Dubway Days, “Two Artists… One Day… One Song,” sums up the mechanics of the show, but its drama hinges on the immensity of that task. Ben Arthur and a guest begin a day of more

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: There is much to admire in a band that forms for the love of music and then, because of the members’ talent, inspiration, and joyful willingness to play tour after tireless tour, achieves well-deserved success. A bluegrass band that elegantly draws inspiration from tradition, The Infamous Stringdusters recently earned a Grammy nomination for Best Country Instrumental Performance for “Magic #9,” the fourth track on the band’s third album, Things That Fly. The Infamous Stringdusters are rather famous – despite the appellation – on the bluegrass-friendly stages of the nation for both their quality (see above) and their quantity (the band plays approximately 150 shows a year!). FOH engineer Drew Becker was fresh off a degree from Full Sail and still rather green when he went to work full-time for the band three years ago. Since then he has logged over 500 shows, some more
