Logitek Ships 600th Audio EngineMore than 900 console control surfaces (July 23, 2004)
Logitek Electronic Systems announced today that the company has shipped its 600th production unit of the Audio Engine, a digital audio router. The Audio Engine provides all audio routing, mixing and management functions for the companys line of digital audio consoles. Logitek also marked the shipment of more than 900 console control surfaces to accompany the Audio Engine units.
?We were the first USA manufacturer to implement router-based audio console designs, said Tag Borland, Logitek president. ?Over the several years in which we have been shipping these systems, we have been able to incorporate a large number of enhancements suggested by our customers. As a result, the Audio Engine is one of the most advanced routers on the market and continues to improve constantly.
The Logitek Audio Engine is an expandable, networkable router with analog or digital inputs / outputs. It provides up to 24 mix-minus busses per control surface, EQ and dynamics processing, simple assignment and selection of audio sources, and (unique to Logitek) full scripting capability enabling execution of complex commands on a single button press or contact closure. Earlier in 2004, Logitek announced the ability to use two Audio Engine units as an Optical STL for bi-directional feeds of up to 64 channels over a distance of up to 6 miles. A number of controllers are available for the Audio Engine, including the Numix and Remora consoles, the vMix ?virtual console, and various router control heads for X-Y selection of sources.
?We anticipate reaching the 1000 mark on control surface shipments by autumn 2004, said Borland. ?We are also continuing to develop our router and control surface product lines to help our customers get the most benefit from these flexible systems.
Now in their 25th year, Logitek Electronic Systems, Inc. designs and manufactures digital audio console, routing, switching and metering products for the broadcast and professional audio industries. Full product information is available at the companys website: www.logitekaudio.com.
