— Featured panelists include personnel from such organizations as Warner Bros Studios, Fox Networks, Skywalker Sound, Sony Pictures Digital, Disney Digital Studio Services, Turner Sports, Technicolor Sound Services and more —

New York, NY, October 8, 2014 — The upcoming 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, taking place October 9-12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will feature the return of the forum curated by DTVAG (DTV Audio Group) – an organization of senior-level broadcast network executives promoting best practices and successful strategies for digital television audio production and delivery. Expanding on the popularity of last year’s debut, Roger Charlesworth, Executive Director of DTVAG, and his team have put together a program that will continue to discuss the hot topic of streaming content delivery and its impact on today’s TV landscape.

Antelope Audio Introduces Satori — a Next Gen Monitoring Controller, Combines True Analog Monitoring and Summing Capabilities

Satori Offers a Comprehensive Feature Set and Extreme Efficiency in a Sleek 1U Rack

Los Angeles, October 8, 2014: Building on its unrivaled pedigree of high-end mastering solutions like Eclipse 384, leading professional audio gear manufacturer Antelope Audio [AES booth 1019] introduces a true analog monitoring and summing system. Satori, a Japanese Buddhist term referring to enlightenment, is designed to deliver an ‘epiphany’ experience to the sound engineer. Antelope’s renowned relay-controlled stepped attenuator, the extremely versatile connectivity options and great selection of stereo effects such as mid-side monitoring, place the Satori among the most advanced monitoring controllers in the world, equally suited to both commercial and project studios.

Extremely Transparent, Coherent Audio Processing:
SatoriFrontSatori expands upon the acclaimed design architecture of Eclipse 384 – Antelope’s award-winning mastering AD/DA and monitoring controller. Carefully designed analog circuits and fast, transparent relay attenuators ensure the audio integrity throughout the whole signal path. The 0.05 dB platinum relays provide supremely accurate volume control and perfect L/R balance, even at the lowest listening levels.

“We wanted to design a clean and transparent monitoring controller that would not compromise the quality of our converters and will provide sound engineers with a genuine listening experience,” commented Igor Levin, founder and CEO of Antelope Audio. “Satori is a part of our concept for creating a coherent signal path all the way from the analog source through conversion, recording and playback. Along with Satori, this philosophy is expressed in our latest product additions: MP32, Pure2, and Orion32.

Dedicated Headphone Amps:
satoriFour independent headphone outputs allow individual source selection and volume control, enabling separate feeds for musicians or vocalists. The headphone drivers on Satori employ the same audiophile-grade circuitry found in Antelope’s line of premium home audio products, and are able to drive both low and high impedances.

Great Flexibility and Efficiency:
Satori offers a plethora of functionality such as talkback and level trims, as well as stereo effects like mute, mono, dim and mid-side. The mid-side effect is rarely implemented in monitor controllers, yet routinely requested by mastering engineers. Gain offset is available for any input and output, making A/B testing extremely easy and efficient. In addition to providing outstanding monitoring capabilities, Satori includes a fully analog 8-channel summing mixer. This kind of analog summing, with warm punch and excellent dynamics, allows engineers who work completely “in-the-box” to mix signals in the analog domain for a more natural blending of instruments.

Abundant Input/Output Options:
SatoriRearWith a generous amount of connectivity options, Satori fits perfectly in any studio and represents the ultimate in user flexibility. With eight stereo inputs, four stereo outputs, a range of connectivity options including XLR, 1/4″ TRS and D-Sub 25, the 1U unit is unique in its class. In addition to four stereo speaker outputs, Satori features a dedicated subwoofer output. The unit also features D-Sub 25 connectivity, elegantly solving the issue of connecting to multi-channel converters such as Orion32.

User-friendly Front Panel and Remote Control:
Satori’s delicately machined aluminum volume knob and large LED front panel push buttons allow easy access to the most commonly used monitoring functions such as input and monitor selectors, gain adjustment and level trimming. The unit also ships with the next generation of software application [Mac and PC] enabling flexible and accurate control. The software control panel allows fast and responsive source and speaker switching, accurate volume control, stereo effects selection, headphone controls and user-recallable presets. Analog summing is fully controllable via the software application.

Satori is scheduled to ship later in Q4 of 2014 and will be priced at $1,475.

The same technology featured in the Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock is also present in the company’s flagship 10M Atomic reference generator and routinely used at the best recording, mastering and postproduction facilities around the Globe.

Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC
The Zodiac Platinum features custom, ultra low jitter USB for streaming up to DSD128 and 384 kHz PCM, plus comprehensive analog and digital I/O. It also features fully reclocked and de-jittered digital outputs along with analog preamp inputs, ensuring sonic purity at the input stage. With its 64-bit precision 8x linear phase PCM and DSD upsampling capabilities and quad DAC architecture, the Zodiac Platinum is able to achieve stunningly transparent imaging and dynamics in the most demanding audiophile environments. With high precision relay attenuators for fast and precise control of main outputs and dual variable impedance headphone outputs, Zodiac Platinum puts power control into the hands of the listener.

10M Audiophile Atomic Clock
The 10M Audiophile Atomic Clock is an upgraded and enhanced version of Antelope’s legendary Isochrone 10M master clock, which has become an industry standard for ensuring audio quality and accurate sound reproduction among leading producers, sound engineers, artists and movie post-production studios worldwide. When coupled with Antelope’s 10M Audiophile Atomic Clock, the Zodiac Platinum Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, reaches an even higher standard of professional-grade performance and a noticeable improvement on audio depth and clarity.

Voltikus PSU: The Ultimate Power Supply
Voltikus PSU is a second generation power supply that is purpose built for the Zodiac Platinum. Hear the difference that a triple regulated power supply with integrated power line filtering can make in combination with an uncompromising DAC and clocking environment.

The Zodiac Platinum DSD DAC & Audiophile 10M Atomic Clock Bundle sells for $12,995. The Zodiac Platinum ships with a dedicated aluminum IR remote and as well as a custom software control panel for PC, Mac or mobile control applications.

First Lutheran Church of Galion Lights Up Sanctuary with Hitachi CP-WX8265 Projector

Hitachi_FirstLutheran_2Galion, Ohio, October 8, 2014 – Needing an upgrade to its video technology, the First Lutheran Church of Galion, Ohio, sought out a fix with help from IT professional and Church member John Renock. The church found its solution in the Hitachi CP-WX8265 projector, which offers high brightness and ease of use.

The First Lutheran Church of Galion has approximately 550 members, with 80-100 people attending regularly on Sundays. A former pastor installed a projector in 2003 to present hymns and sermon graphics. Over time, the quality deteriorated and the church began looking for an upgrade.

Mr. Renock explained the need for a new projector in the church. “The projector is used in the sanctuary and projected onto the front wall, said Mr. Renock. “It presents an announcement loop and full service liturgy and lessons.”

The need for a new projector serves more purposes than one. “We are able to provide the congregation with a source other than hymnals and bulletins to follow the service,” explained Mr. Renock.

The new Hitachi projector received positive comments from multiple people in the congregation. Mr. Renock added, “It is much easier to use with the remote than our previous projector. And jumping from a faded, 3,000 lumen image to 6,400 lumens make the images more intense and visible. It’s amazing!”
