Cincinnati, OH (March 30, 2005)–Harris Corporation Broadcast Communications Division (BCD) is bringing its Harris PR&E brand of innovative, digital on-air consoles to smaller markets and studios with the introduction of a new console, the cost-effective Harris PR&E StereoMixer digital. The newest member of the expanding VistaMax family of products, the StereoMixer digital is a cost-effective, all-digital console specifically designed for smaller markets.
The board supports analog and digital inputs and outputs, allowing radio stations to transition to digital at their own timeframe. And with its completely digital mixing architecture and considerable flexibility, medium-to-large market radio stations can use the StereoMixer digital for smaller studio applications, while retaining the innovation associated with larger Harris PR&E digital consoles.
“The StereoMixer digital breaks the price point for digital consoles in smaller studio applications,” said Rich Redmond, director of broadcast systems for Harris BCD’s Radio Broadcast Systems business unit. “The StereoMixer digital clearly fills a void for smaller market stations which have been seeking a cost-effective, flexible digital platform. Its design features the perfect amount of mixing buses, logic, and mix minus capabilities for telephones in most small-market and small-studio applications. This also means that larger markets now have a truly viable option for smaller-studio applications. The StereoMixer digital’s straightforward approach creates a simpler, less costly installation.”
Following the successful BMXdigital and recently introduced RMXdigital on-air consoles, the StereoMixer digital on-air console begins shipping in spring 2005. Studios with limited space will benefit from its compactness, which allows for a comfortable fit into even the tightest studio space. Another StereoMixer digital trademark is its simple user interface. The StereoMixer digital is available in both tabletop and rack-mount versions.
