CONTEMPORARY AND LEGENDARY PRODUCER BUTCH VIG TURNS TO THE BOCK 507 MIC

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MARCH 2010: Few contemporary musical minds can claim credit for having helped craft as many ground-breaking works as can the mind of Butch Vig. As producer, he is responsible for both Nirvana’s “Nevermind,” which become one of the greatest rock albums of all time, and Smashing Pumpkins’ “Siamese Dream,” which helped defined the sound of the 1990s. Those two accomplishments are epic enough that no one would have faulted him for proudly resting on his laurels. But instead of resting, Vig helped propel his band Garbage to sales of over fourteen million albums from behind the drum kit, a career change that underscores the native Wisconsinite’s genuine love for making music. Since Garbage’s hiatus, Vig has gone on to produce albums for Jimmy Eat World, The Subways, and Green Day, with Green Day’s “21st Century Breakdown” earning a Grammy for “Best Rock Album.” more

Vaddio, the leading manufacturer and OEM distributor of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems, is now shipping the new UXHD CrossPoint, a dual input, dual output video format converter and scaler for HD-SDI and analog video signals.
