HHB have announced their largest ever presence at the Broadcast Video Expo 2017 in London, with a whopping 106 sq metre stand, making them the largest Pro Audio exhibitor this year.
Brands and products on display will include -
Avid S6, S3 & Dock control surfaces as well Pro Tools HD Native & HDX Systems
Do you have a D-Command or D-Control that is getting a little long in the tooth then have a look at the Avid S6 or maybe the Avid S3 and Pro Tools Dock combination.
Genelec - Full 8000 Series Range
When I visited the new HHB Scrub premises I reviewed the Genelec SAM system and even in a "difficult" room, with unconventional speaker mounting and rear ported speakers placed against (and even in) partition walls, it delivered a punch and accuracy that was incredible. There was also an amazing consistency between the different models, meaning that you can have very good faith in how your mix is going to translate. Even the ceiling mounted 5.1 system sounded incredible, and after a while you forgot that you had the speakers above you.
There will be the full range of Rode microphones but Mike tells me that he is keen to get his hands on the new Rode VideoMic Soundfield. It is very interesting that from their acquisition of the the Soundfield brand in November to announcing the first Rode Soundfield related product, is impressive and it looks as if the VideoMic Soundfield will provide a cost effective solution to go with VR acquisition hardware and as we have said before VR has enabled Ambisonics to find a home. If you want to learn more about the VideoMic Soundfield then you can watch this excerpt.....
Roland - M-5000C & V-1200HD
Covering live sound and vision mixing, Roland will be there with their M-5000C live console and their V-1200HD multi format video switcher, which is a flexible multi-format video switcher giving control of video sources, key layers and mixing engine configurations. It has a flexible hybrid engine with 4:2:2 broadcast switcher and 4:4:4 live event switcher. In addition it also has a built-in 16-channel audio mixer.
Vicoustic Acoustic Treatment
This is a new brand to the HHB stable and you will be able to see their panelling and products on the HHB stand after the company’s distribution division, Source Distribution, was recently appointed the exclusive distributor for the UK. Vicoustic’s products cater for a wealth of sectors including music, broadcast, home cinema, and construction.
HHB's sister company Source Distribution is no stranger to Vicoustic products, having commissioned Vicoustic to treat Scrub’s Genelec Experience listening facility in Central London. Pro Audio Product Specialist Andy Bensley oversaw the installation first-hand and told us...
The opportunity to work first-hand with Vicoustic for the Wells St installation cemented my respect for the company. We saw first hand the transformative performance of their product range, but especially for the incredible expertise of the company staff. The before-and-after results speak for themselves – they’ve created a space that is now incredibly well controlled, leaving clients stunned at the results they witness here on a daily basis.
Wohler - Video Monitoring
If you ever venture in to the machine room of a video facility, you'll more than likely see a Wohler rack mounted multi video monitor installed. Video engineers take their video monitoring as seriously as we take audio monitoring, and Wohler provide an extensive range.
