The Netherlands – Highlighting its line of digital mixing units in the DMM
series, HARMAN’s AKG will be showcasing its DMM12 BC during IBC. The 12-input mixer’s highly
sophisticated algorithm offers a high signal-to-noise ratio to minimize the
number of open microphones in a mix and offers the ability to create a
different mix per each output. The DMM12 BC unit is scalable up to 10 units and
each unit’s inputs are individually routable to numerous outputs – two stereo
line outs, one stereo record output and an AES-EBU output. The
professional-grade unit offers numerous DSP functions included in the 19-inch,
level, bass, low cut, limiter, compressor, auto-mixing, priority, pam/balance,
routing to receiver, routing to output 1, routing to output 2 and delay
adjustments can be made quickly with the intuitive, easy-to-use interface.
broadcast facility with DMM12 BC allows engineers to have better control of the
digital audio functions, but with a more “analog” feel to the unit,” stated
Kent Iverson, Director of Marketing and Product Development, AKG. “The DMM
series will be a substantial addition to any broadcast or backroom installed
sound rig as its quality, reliability and user-friendliness meet the needs of
the mixing professional on numerous levels.”
use, all inputs are active, but attenuated to a level that equals the level of
one “active microphone.” If one or more inputs receive relevant input signals,
their amplification is increased to a level, which allows overall output to
equal one “active microphone,” resulting in an absolute feedback-stable system.
Working to deter noise pickup, the DMM series
senses numerous sonic activities to monitor and diminish unwanted sound.
If a signal is picked up over a long period of time, the mixers understand that
it may be an air conditioning unit or other unavoidable noise. When a
large number of microphones pick up the same signal and all mics are active,
the DMM system will recognize applause and not react. When two
microphones are receiving the same signal, the mic with the slightly higher
level gets priority, while the other one is attenuated.
