HOLLAND: AlterMedia, Barix and Sonifex (pictured) are among the many companies showcasing new products at IBC2009, which ends today, reports PSN-e. Once again, this year's IBC conference and exhibition has been taking place at the RAI centre in Amsterdam, and pro-audio has been very well-represented by both established heavyweights and newer players.

AlterMedia showcased the Studio Suite 9 studio management software solution. The latest version of the package introduces nine completely new modules including Productions (allows groups of Projects to be clustered and managed collectively), Budgets (interacts with Projects and Productions for 'real-time' budget/actual status) and Employee Scheduling. StudioSuite 9 will be available in four versions: Solo, for single-user boutique studios; Pro, for small professional studios; Network, for multi-room/user facilities; and Internet, for mid-to-large facilities needing to access critical data via the web.

According to AlterMedia CEO and Studio Suite designer Joel Stoner, "StudioSuite 9 is truly a pivotal development for the media and entertainment industry. We are not only providing an entry-level product (Solo) for the exploding smaller studio market, but we are simultaneously pushing the edge of internet technologies to provide wider accessibility for larger facilities. Our software allows everyone involved in the production chain to work on the same proven platform."

New developments showcased by Barix AG included a solution for local advertising insertion. Developed in partnership with StreamGuys and MOH Technologies AG, the solution provides radio networks with a toolset that allows them to deliver syndicated programming with individual advertisements, promos, jingles, station IDs and other content to local affiliates. The solution has only minimal hardware requirements and entails a single Barix Exstreamer 100 device being positioned at each affiliate to receive and decode the individualised stream, which can then be further processed or directly broadcast via terrestrial or cable systems.

Euphonix unveiled the latest addition to its range of media controllers. The MC Color is described as a "compact yet powerful colour grader that offers unmatched control and integration with Apple's Color 1.5 at a breakthrough price". Euphonix also displayed the S5 Fusion and Max Air digital audio mixing systems, and highlighted the latest 1.4.2 EuCon software for Euphonix Pro consoles, which provides support for Nuendo 4.3 and the forthcoming Nuendo SyncStation synchroniser.

Sonifex exhibited two new Redbox products: the RB-DMX4 4x4 channel digital audio mixer/router (pictured) and the RB-DD4 4-channel digital audio delay. The RB-DMX4 is a digital mixer capable of mixing or routing four mono input channels into four mono outputs, or two stereo inputs into two stereo outputs, while the RB-DD4 allows users to delay four mono channels of audio independently or together.

"These two new Redboxes are useful 'audio for radio and TV' products, allowing digital audio to be delayed and manipulated," commented Sonifex managing director Marcus Brooke. "They allow a group of digital audio de-embedded from an HD stream to be delayed, routed and the level of each channel altered. With the release of new Redbox embedders and de-embedders as well, they form part of a suit of practical products for video and TV broadcast use."
