Sonifex to show new products at IBC 2004

Sonifex is to show a range of new products on stand 8.561 at the IBC 2004 exhibition, adding to its successful current portfolio.
The S2 is a new, small format, modular digital I/O analogue radio broadcast mixer which uses the latest technology components to offer digital audio quality with analogue reliability in a modular format. S2 has both digital and analogue input channels, together with simultaneous analogue and digital outputs.
S2 combines all the features needed of a radio broadcast mixer in a stylish, flush-mounting chassis: a wide range of input and output channels, PFL/cue, fader-start operation of equipment, automatic monitor muting on mic-live, light switching remote outputs, optional EQ on input modules, gram amp input options and two main audio buses, allowing users to broadcast on the PRG bus while recording on the AUD bus, with bus output selection on each module.
New talkback units are also being premiered at the show. Initially designed to interface with the S2 mixer, the desktop or rack-mount units can be used for general inter-studio talkback. There are also versions that work with the Sonifex Station Master studio switcher.
Also debuting at this year's IBC show is a new transcription system called D:Scribe. Audio files recorded on the Net-Log audio logger are stored in a database, to which text can be simply added with the use of a foot-controller to control playback of the audio. A stand-alone version of D:Scribe is also available for general transcription. The Net-Log 4 channel audio logger has been redesigned to have a chrome front panel and a new software release allows automatic record start and stop on audio, 250,000 recording cuts, support for larger hard drives and an increased number of recording programmes.
Sonifex's Redbox range of audio interfaces continues to expand with the addition of some new products which are being shown for the first time at the IBC: The RB-DSS10, 10 way digital source select unit is a 24 bit 96kHz capable 1U rack-mount which produces an AES/EBU and S/PDIF level digital audio output from 10 selectable AES/EBU or S/PDIF digital input signals. There are 10 illuminated front panel push buttons, which select and indicate the current channel selection, as well as remote selection. As well as routing the selected audio signal, the unit will also route a remote signal inputs through the remote connector to the selected input source, for starting external audio equipment such as a CD player. There is a front panel headphone socket with volume control for monitoring.
The RB-SS10 10 way analogue source select/mixer unit is similar to the RB-DSS10, but has analogue audio inputs and outputs and can also mix the inputs to the output as well as route them.
Another distribution amplifier has been added to the Redboxes in the form of the RB-DDA6W 6 way word-clock distribution amplifier. The unit’s primary application is to distribute a master BNC TTL world clock source to up to six BNC word-clock pieces of equipment that need to be synchronised from the master.
