Grass Valley, CA (April 22, 2010)-At the NAB Show, Renegade Labs highlighted the adoption of its Blue and Gray digital audio mixers throughout North America, Asia and Europe.
According to Keith Knudsen, Renegade Labs co-founder/VP of sales and marketing manager, “Imagica currently owns about 20 of our systems–a mixture of Blues, Grays and Gray|MXEs. Our Japanese dealer, Totsu International, has placed close to 100 Renegade mixers in the Tokyo market. NHK owns multiple Gray|MXE systems, as does Omnibus, TV Tokyo and The Tube. As technology in Japan shifts towards non-linear editing, our Blue mixers provide excellent tools for the Tokyo edit suites, with multiple Blue systems to be found at Akasaka Video Center, Fuji Soft ABC and TV Shizuoka.”
“My time is divided between editing and directing as a staff employee at FedEx Services,” confides Steve Spakes, the facility’s senior editor/director. “We have several edit suites utilizing Avid, [Apple] Final Cut Pro and Quantel products. We also have a couple of studios and a satellite network capable of broadcasting four different channels almost anywhere in the world. Blue|328 audio mixers are being used in five Avid Symphony edit suites. We like the incredible performance and versatility of the product while maintaining a small footprint.”
“In our AVID DS editing suites, the Renegade Blue|328 fits seamlessly into our workflow,” offers Steve Snyder, engineering technician at Technicolor, Hollywood, CA. Technicolor recently added 16 new Blue, Blue|MXE and Gray|MXE systems, bringing its total to more than 20. “The small footprint has afforded us more usable console space. The ease of use and operation, including a large variety of monitoring configurations makes it extremely easy for a facility to standardize operations from bay to bay. The Blue|328 makes these jobs simple and is effective in all of our applications. We found the best solution for our appplication with the Blue|328.”
