Our friends at Aspen Media have highlighted some of the products from brands they look after that were showing at NAB 2018 and we felt that some of these were appropriate to share with the Production Expert community.
Globcon Networked Audio Control Application
German pro audio specialists DirectOut Technologies, who are distributed in the UK by our friends at Aspen Media, is the first Globcon adopter and next year it is planned that devices from other manufacturers will be added.
Globcon was conceived and designed from the end-user’s perspective to allow consistent and coherent control of multiple pieces of equipment from different brands as if they were just one. There is no requirement to understand or program using complicated and diverse protocols, and no custom solution is needed – just plug-and-play!
Available for Mac, PC and Linux, Globcon enables several end-users to share the control of locally-connected devices using a standard Ethernet infrastructure. The software offers a systemwide overview, independent snapshots and facilitates and synchronises real-time changes. A public beta version of the software is now available, providing integrated control and management of several DirectOut devices via a local USB port or a network.
DirectOut Technologies Devices Already Supported.
- ANDIAMO series
By the end of 2018, it is planned that the complete DirectOut product portfolio will be supported by Globcon, and from the beginning of 2019, devices from a variety of other manufacturers will start to be added.
JLCooper Eclipse Fader Controllers Now Support QSC Q-SYS 7.0
As we covered in our detailed look at surround monitor controllers the QSC Q-SYS system is being picked up as a way of managing complex surround and immersive audio monitoring systems. Our friends at Aspen Media have announced that the JLCooper Eclipse fader panels MXL and MXL2 are now supported for use with the QSC Q-SYS 7.0 software.
Q-SYS is a software-based platform built around an open IT-friendly ecosystem. It leverages the power of Intel processing, the robustness and mission-critical reliability of a Linux operating system, and the interoperability of IEEE networking standards.
