New York (October 2, 2009)-- Lectrosonics' DM Series audio processors have been selected to provide auto-mixing technology for the technical program panel discussions during the upcoming 127th AES Convention-held October 9-12 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
A key attraction of the AES show, the various panel discussions and presentations of white papers are widely viewed as an opportunity for industry leaders and show attendees to address various issues that concern the professional audio community.
A total of five Lectrosonics DM812 digital automatic matrix mixers-one for each of the five different rooms where the panel discussions are to take place-will be inserted in-line between the microphones and mixing console. In addition to their ability to auto-mix up to 8 channels, the DM812 processors offer a means of increasing gain before feedback. Further, as the systems are designed for unattended operation, their inclusion during the panel discussions requires only minimal oversight, thus freeing the house AV technicians to focus on more pressing issues.
Henry Cohen, AES Live Sound co-chair, commented on the value and convenience the Lectrosonics DM Series processors bring to the forthcoming panel discussions. "With AES being the premiere convention for the professional audio community," said Cohen, "these panel discussions provide tremendous information for attendees, so being able to clearly hear the panelists is crucial. Equally significant, as an organization of audio professionals, AES should be at the forefront of delivering superior audio quality. The Lectrosonics DM Series processors are well known for their performance attributes, so were clearly the product of choice for these important sessions."
Howard Kaufman, Lectrosonics' greater New York area technical representative, who is coordinating the delivery of the equipment, is equally enthusiastic. "We're delighted to see our products being used in this capacity," Kaufman notes. "The DM processors have earned a stellar reputation for this very sort of application, so it's very gratifying to be a vital part of the AES panel discussions."
