US: Sonifex and Fairlight are among the companies to have announced their plans for the NAB Show, reports PSN-e. This year's show - which takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 18-23 - follows a highly successful 2008 edition that attracted 105,529 people, of which 28,310 were international attendees.

Fairlight will demonstrate the Xynergi controller, Constellation XCS console and Pyxis MT. The company will hold theatre-style presentations every hour and individual demonstrations throughout the show at the Fairlight booth.

J_nger Audio will show a complete suite of DSP and interface cards for its C8000 LEVEL MAGIC automated loudness control system for production and broadcast. For the first time ever, the company will demonstrate LEVEL MAGIC in a complete set-up that offers a fully integrated workflow solution for managing surround sound and Dolby-coded 5.1 audio signals in production, ingest and playout.

The manufacturer will also highlight several new additions to its Surround Suite of processing tools: the C8086-8 - an eight-channel DSP card that incorporates a new Dolby Metadata Generator option - and the 16-channel C8404 HD/SD-SDI embedder/de-embedder and Dolby E resynchroniser card with in-built video delay. J_nger Audio will also introduce the C8486 SDI inserter card with integrated LEVEL MAGIC functionality.

Sonifex is to highlight the SignalLED range of illuminated studio signs, which includes the LD-40E1ONA Double Sided End Mounting 40cm 'ON AIR' sign (pictured). Designed for studio installers and systems integrators, these RGB LED signs contain control electronics, enabling them to be easily configured for colour and operation on site. The signs - each of which are 40cm or 20cm long - are flush-mounted as standard, but an optional kit can be used to end-mount them to the wall. A double-sided end-mounted version is also available. Although a range of standard signs is supported, custom signs can be produced for a nominal set-up fee.

"NAB is a useful show for seeing international distributors as well as US customers," Sonifex managing director Marcus Brooke tells PSN-e. "We're excited about all of the new products that we'll be showing at this year's show. We've had huge interest in our lovely new SignalLED studio signs, and the Dolby decoder version of our Reference Monitor offers probably the cheapest solution for monitoring Dolby in a 1U rack that there is."

LYNX Technik AG is to show a number of new products, including the D VD 1606 'brick-style' 3GHz 1x6 SDI distribution amplifier. Part of LYNX Technik's new 'Yellobrik' line of standalone brick signal processing products, the compact unit will be available in May. The company will also show three new 'Yellobrik' fiber products - the O TX 1810 SDI to fiber optic transmitter, the O RX 1800 fiber optic to SDI receiver, and the O TR 1810 SDI/fiber optic transceiver - along with a new Yellobrik Multiformat Sync Pulse Generator with Genlock (S PG 1707) and a new versatile SD/HD FLEXCARD solution (P IE 5610 FLEXCARD Multiformat Image Engine).

Winfried Deckelmann, CEO of LYNX Technik AG, tells PSN-e: "We work diligently to accommodate our customers' evolving needs by bringing versatile feature-rich solutions to market. Events such as NAB are a launching pad to target our global marketplace with our new products."
