Steinberg showcases new Nuendo synchronizer at AESFull-featured hardware synchronizer co-development with CB Electronics presented at 121st AES in San Francisco (October 06, 2006)
“We’re very excited to be developing a new HD video-compatible synchronizer for Nuendo together with Colin Broad of CB Electronics, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hardware for post production,” says Lars Baumann, Steinberg’s Senior Product Manager for Nuendo. “Despite the current trend towards accomplishing ever more tasks using video within DAWs, many post people still have a requirement to integrate their audio workstation with other devices. The new hardware will couple the open, innovative and scalable Nuendo DAW technology with Colin’s 25 years of experience and his outstanding technical know-how in the field of machine control,” he continues.
Colin Broad, founder of CB Electronics comments: “Nuendo is regarded as one of the leading software solutions for post production, so it seemed natural to collaborate with Steinberg to come up with a fully-featured synchronizing device tailored for the post production market. We’re sure the results will be outstanding.”
The new unit will be fitted with a wide range of physical interfaces for machine control and synchronization, including support for LTC, MTC/MMC, Sony 9-Pin machine control, Sony 9-pin emulation, Wordclock and GPIO. The synchronizer will be tightly integrated with Steinberg’s Nuendo Media Production System with a sample-accurate VST System Link connection.
The new hardware will complete the existing Nuendo feature set for synchronization and machine control. It will offer locking not only to a variety of reference sources such as AES/EBU signals, but also to video reference including tri-level sync signals from HD video devices. Two RS-422 ports will enable Nuendo to act either as a Sony 9-Pin Controller or Device. As a 9-pin controller, Nuendo will slave to either LTC or VITC with a single serial connection. The new hardware will interface with the Nuendo software via USB and establishes near sample accurate sync using a VST System Link connection to the computer’s audio interface with help of any commonly used digital connection such as RCA, BNC, XLR or optical.
