UK/GREECE: The event will be held at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre in Greece from September 20-25, reports David Davies. The 2009 conference of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) will address issues relating to the loss of physical artefacts due to damage and decay, subsequent digitisation, the diversity of archive methods and carriers, and the ethics of audio/video restoration.

"Since 1989 we have been fully committed to working with and providing the best audio restoration solutions for the world's archives and libraries, and our sponsorship of IASA 2009 is another important milestone in the long-standing relationship between CEDAR and these users," commented CEDAR Audio managing director Gordon Reid (pictured).

In conjunction with its partner, NOA Audio Solutions, and local Greek dealer Tasos Pandis of Music-Eshop/Panditec, CEDAR Audio will conduct audio archiving/restoration system demonstrations throughout the conference.

Invited by PSN-e to consider the year so far for the Cambridge-based company, Reid responds that 2009 has been "an exciting year for CEDAR. It began by putting the finishing touches to the new CEDAR Cambridge Series III hardware and the Vista-64 based versions of our CEDAR Cambridge software modules, all of which were released on schedule in February 09. At the same time, the CEDAR DNS3000 dialogue noise suppressor was being nominated for the Cinema Audio Society Award that it won in March 2009. More recently, CEDAR Audio itself has been shortlisted in the Small Company of the Year category for a British Engineering Excellence Award, and we will learn whether we have won this on October 1st.

"Looking forward, we have a number of new products in development for release later in 2009 and in 2010, and the first of these should be announced within the next few weeks, hopefully in time for the autumn convention season."
