Audio distribution amp
Parrot: The Parrot is a high performance audio distribution amplifier with one stereo input and eight stereo outputs. It features both XLR-balanced and RCA outputs, which are individually buffered. Audio input is via XLRs. Using internal jumpers, the Parrot can be re-configured as a 1×16 distribution amp. With a stereo input, the Parrot can output mono or stereo signals, depending on the individual setting of each output pair. Each balanced output stage incorporates high-current line drivers capable to always deliver optimal signals to a number of locations even down long cable runs and with low load impedance. Parrot features a hardware bypass (via relay), which connects the input pair to the output 1 XLRs in case of ac power failure.

5.1 surround soundproduction library
Revolver: This all-in-one collection of 1,000 hi-definition 5.1 surround sound imaging elements, compositions, drones and trailers are distributed on six DVDs. Each sound was originally recorded at 24-bit 96kHz to ensure the highest quality then delivered as 24-bit 48kHz broadcast WAV files. And each file comes as an additional MP3 for quick referencing. Revolver is a click-and-drag library that is conveniently cataloged with embedded metadata for easy search and retrieval in Pro Tools, Avid, Sound Miner, Net Mix, Itunes and other popular sound library search engines.
Studio master clock
MCDA-112: The MCDA-112 can generate a perfect sync reference of 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192kHz, or can accept and regenerate an external reference to feed its 12 individually buffered BNC outputs. The MCDA-112 accepts AES, Word Clock or Super-Word Clock as external inputs and provides Word Clock or Super-Word Clock at its outputs. Front-panel controls and indicators include External Clock Format Select, Sample Rate Select, Output Clock Format Select, Input Termination, Clock Source and Front Panel Lock. The MCDA-112 derives its internal clock reference from a 24MHz precision oscillator and divides down to produce the output clock, thus minimizing errors, rather than multiplying up from 44.1 or 48kHz. A VCO receiver system regenerates input clock signals to remove anomalies and insure an ultra-low jitter output.
Allen & Heath
Zed 4-Bus series: Similar to the smaller Zed-14, the 4-Bus series features the same high performance Duo Pre padless preamp, which is a quality microphone circuit and an optimized line input circuit, rather than one pre-amp handling both mic and line signals. It uses a two-stage design with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage, offering high headroom and a low noise, clean signal path. The Zed 4 bus series has a responsive four-band, two-swept mids EQ with in/out switch, six aux sends (two pre, two post, two pre/post), four sub groups, direct outputs on each mono channel, separate L, R and M main buses, 100mm long throw faders, two matrix outputs, and a talkback facility to auxes or LRM. The connectors are placed on the top surface for easy plug-in and patching, and the construction, with individual circuit boards nutted to the top panel, is identical to Allen & Heath's professional touring mixers.
Upgrades and Updates
Axia Audio has released version 2.5.2g software for its family of analog and AES/EBU Audio Nodes. Version 2.5.2g introduces Mono Mode, continuous software monitoring, visual identification of allocated sources and front-panel hardware volume control for Router Selector Nodes. (www.axiaaudio.com)…BW Broadcast has acquired Danagger Audio Works and the Plan B line of dead-air prevention devices. BW will work with Danagger to design a series of new products, including an updated version of the Plan B. Support for legacy Plan B products will be handled by Danagger. (www.danagger.com)…V-Soft has developed a system that allows a user to gain authentication through an online Web server in addition to the physical local or network key. With this option, if a key is stolen or lost, V-Soft would disable the missing key on the Web server and issue a new key with a new number. (www.v-soft.com)
