More Option Cards For Soundcraft Vi Series Add Broadcast Appeal And Bring Recording Opportunities

At IBC 2009, Soundcraft is featuring more option interface cards for its Vi Series Digital Live Sound consoles, expanding the applications of the highly popular digital mixer into broadcast, and adding easy capabilities for direct recording from the desk.

Using the ADAT card, it is possible to connect two ports of eight channels (inputs and outputs) to an ADAT-equipped hard disk or software-based recorder, so two cards would enable 32 channels of audio to be recorded and played back almost instantaneously.

The SDI and Dolby® E cards will be welcomed by broadcasters, as it means the desk can handle the de-embedding of audio channels from within SDI video streams (and re-embedding for onward transmission), and the decoding of up to 8 channels of audio from a Dolby Digital or Dolby E stream. All individual audio channels are then available within the Vi Series’ digital patchbay for more

Landmark Yamaha PM1D Digital Console Retires on 10TH Anniversary

BUENA PARK, Calif.⎯On September 22, 1999, the Yamaha PM1D first-of-its-kind digital mixing system designed specifically for live sound reinforcement made its debut at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The PM1D started a digital revolution in live sound, and its worldwide popularity resulted in significant sales, and the beginning of a new era.

Therefore, in order to secure enough parts for customer service well into the future, the production of this legendary mixing system will cease in December 2009. Current requests for PM1D systems will be fulfilled, and limited quantities will remain available until the existing stock is depleted.

The company is not resting on its laurels, however, and has made available online a brief ‘white paper’ that will provide customers with its concept more
