Palo Alto, CA (January 14, 2008)–Large-format digital mixing console and control surface manufacturer Euphonix will celebrate 20 years in business in 2008. Euphonix–a portmanteau of “euphony” (a pleasant or sweet sound) and “mix”–introduced its first digitally controlled analog console, Crescendo, at the 1990 AES show in Los Angeles.
From its modest founding in a Silicon Valley garage in 1988, Euphonix has evolved into a global presence in the pro audio industry. This year marks another significant milestone for the company as Euphonix will be introducing its first products for the personal studio market at the 2008 Winter NAMM Show later this month.
“Twenty years ago, Euphonix was simply a dream for a handful of visionaries, and today that dream has been realized. We are proud to be at the forefront of console technology, providing innovative, high-tech solutions to audio mixing. Now, we are looking forward to our next 20 years with anticipation and optimism,” said Euphonix CEO Martin Kloiber.
Euphonix introduced the world’s first 24/96K large-format digital console, the Euphonix System 5, at the 1999 AES show in New York. Today, Euphonix designs and sells a complete array of digital products for film, broadcast, music and post-production.
In the past two decades, Euphonix has established sales and service offices in Los Angeles, New York, London and Tokyo, as well as a large distribution network around the world. Moreover, Euphonix has sold hundreds of consoles, controllers, converters and DAWs in more than 25 countries. High-profile clients in the entertainment industry include CNN, Sydney Opera House, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Pinewood Studios, NHK, Lakewood Church and many more.
The company’s current product line runs the gamut from the System 5-F dual operator film-mixing systems to Media Application Controllers for DAWs. Euphonix has also created EuCon, a high-speed Ethernet protocol that enables seamless network control of multiple workstations.
