Boulder, CO (July 3, 2012)—Zeehi is debuting its CueCast digital mixing console user file conversion service on July 4.
CueCast allows engineers to convert “show files” that contain user settings between different digital audio mixing console formats. The initial release of CueCast converts typical features and functions stored in show files, including bussing, sub-group assigns, control group assigns, routing, labeling, mutes and mute groups, EQ and dynamic in/out settings, aux. send on/off/and assigns, and effects and matrix on/off and assigns. The current iteration of CueCast supports file conversion between the Avid Venue, DiGiCo SD8 and SD10 and Yamaha PM5D platforms. Zeehi says future releases will support additional console formats, and will provide conversion of variable settings and snapshots, among other features.
“We first announced CueCast at the InfoComm show in Las Vegas last month. Everyone we demoed for lauded our innovation.” Said Danny Abelson, Zeehi co-founder. “We promised a release date in early July, and we’re meeting that commitment. We have been extensive in our pre-release testing, with additional Beta testing performed by a number of experienced outside engineers. Fortunately, that process has been going well, to the point where we feel we are ready to offer CueCast to the user community.”
New customers will be provided with a 30-day free trial to try out the new service. Users will be credited with two free conversions when they sign up, valid for 30 days from sign up. Abelson continued, “We want everyone to feel comfortable with file conversion. CueCast is breaking new ground, and engineers will not believe how cool it is until they try it. Seeing their settings instantly load on a different desk, and the time it saves them compared to manual entry, is going to makes us a lot of friends. We anticipate that there will be a few bugs along the way. This is a very complicated process. As in all new software applications, the users will need a bit of patience, and we will need them to tell us if we have something wrong. By providing our initial users with two free conversions, we feel we can give our customers the opportunity to try us out, with no risk, and feel confident in the conversions before committing to purchases. We’re confident the flexibility and independence CueCast provides engineers will become a welcome and relied-upon solution.”
