San Francisco, CA (November 8, 2010)—At the AES Convention, Stagetec USA announced that Touring Video has ordered a 32-fader, 110-channel Crescendo console after using the console on a couple of live-to-tape TV broadcasts in L.A.
Several freelance audio operators had the opportunity to use the console during the recordings and unanimously gave it the thumbs up to Touring's president, Doug Armstrong. "The engineers have also become big fans, with the NEXUS router as the core and a star-based system, we can place I/O frames on stage, in tape racks and in control rooms" stated Armstrong. "Everything talks within a simple fiber network, it sounds great and even offers the ability to embed audio within the frame.”
The sale was completed by GMA, which is also based in L.A. and will support the installation. "We are looking forward to a long and fruitful collaboration with Touring Video," states GMA's co-owner/technical director B. Morgan Martin.
"This marks the first sale of the Crescendo in the U.S. and confirms that the console is suited to the U.S. market," stated Rusty Waite, president of Stagetec USA, "and we are hoping that more people continue to take notice of the features and build quality of our equipment to make their work life easier."
