SoundPro’19 Insider #1 Prism, Rycote, Sound-link, Synthax, Wendy’s
Posted on: Tuesday 24th of September 2019
Over the next month, the Resolution newsletter will be bringing you information and insight from some of the exhibitors who you can meet at the SoundPro’19 event on October 26th in Chiswick Town Hall, London W4 4JN. We have nearly 30 exhibitors lined up to show you their wares, and four great talks/sessions from:
Mark Angus (award-winning video game audio designer, EA, Sega)
Anthony Shaw (of the Spiritland Productions’ new mobile truck),
Kate Hopkins ( interview Resolution V17.6 – award-winning sound supervisor, Blue Planet, Blue Planet II)
Pete Burgis (leading Foley artist, Harry Potter, Slumdog Millionaire)
Sound-Link is the official UK distributor for Microtech Gefell microphones, AETA Audio codecs, ME-Geithain monitor loudspeakers, HUM Audio ribbon microphones, the Håkan Pop Killer and True Phantom.
At SoundPro’19 Sound-Link will show several codecs from AETA Audio. “Being first audio experts as well as an IP codec company, AETA’s codecs have exceptional sound quality that can take the high dynamic range of commentators,” says SoundLink’s John Willett. “These people often talk normally at one moment and then suddenly shout loudly when, for example, a goal is scored. Also, the connectivity of AETA’s codecs is superb in that they can easily be connected to other manufacturers’ codecs at the far end and not only to AETA models.”
AETA first showed the new eScoopFone smartphone codec app in September in Europe and it’s making its first appearance in the UK at SoundPro’19. “This new codec is perfect for spontaneous and flexible news gathering,” remarks Willett.
AETA codecs have a unique ‘Remote Access’ option, enabling a codec to be fully remotely controlled anywhere in the world; very useful in case the journalist on-site needs support from a technician in the Master Control Room. All AETA codecs come with a SIP account as standard.
The popular ScoopTeam is the codec of choice for many international sports broadcasters and has: AoIP via Ethernet, 3G, 4G and WiFi as well as ISDN and one or two Ravenna AES67 modules to give four or eight audio channels respectively.
In addition, we will also be showing microphones from both Microtech Gefell and the new HUM Audio ribbon microphones.
Wendy’s Broadcast Services will be demonstrating and exhibiting products of interest to the professional sound recordist. “We are delighted to have a representative from URSA straps who will be on hand to assist with tips and tricks for mounting their extensive range of clips, mounts and belts,” says WBS’ Peter Frost. “We can reveal that there will be a new URSA product announced at the stand, so if you want to be ahead of the curve, make sure you pay us a visit. If you are interested in the new Sound Devices Scorpio but haven’t had time to check it out, we will be happy to demo this along with an Icon Platform M+ controller and D2 display.
“Do you ever wish you had a stereo audio interface for monitoring production and walkie-talkie audio over headphones? As the exclusive UK distributor of the Smyles Comm-biner, we have just the thing you’re looking for! We look forward to meeting you at the show.”
Since its inception in 1987, Prism Sound has been designing and developing digital audio products for the most discerning of users. “The uncompromised approach to creating sophisticated and innovative technologies has allowed Prism Sound to build up an enviable client list that includes some of the most celebrated names in the audio industry,” says the company’s Will Rowe. “World famous facilities like British Grove, Metropolis Studios and Abbey Road all trust in Prism Sound equipment to perform at the highest level.”
Prism Sound will be premiering the brand new MDIO-Dante expansion cards for the Titan and Atlas multi-channel interfaces at SoundPro’19, and for the first time in the UK. Prism Sound will be showcasing the enhanced possibilities that the Titan and Atlas can achieve with the new Dante expansion card, as well as demonstrating the ease of setting up a Dante network using Prism Sound interfaces.
Synthax Audio UK is the exclusive UK distributor for a number of pro-audio manufacturers, specialising in the supply of hardware to the recording, production, live sound and broadcast markets.
Representing brands including RME, Calrec, Ferrofish and Appsys ProAudio, Synthax is also the official UK representative for the Calrec Brio, reportedly “the most powerful and compact digital broadcast console in its class”, and the new Calrec Type R, an IP-based, modular control system designed primarily for use in radio, and available to demo at SoundPro 2019. The Synthax stand will also feature a selection of industry-leading audio interfaces from German manufacturer RME, including the flagship, 188-channel RME Fireface UFX+, and the award-winning RME ADI-2 Pro FS converter.
Rounding off the Synthax line-up is the Ferrofish A32 Dante, a 32-channel A-D/D-A converter with MADI and Dante connectivity, and the Appsys Multiverter, a digital format converter with ADAT, MADI, AES50 and Dante/AES67 connectivity, and optional SRC. Support for additional formats has also just been added, allowing the Multiverter to connect directly to consoles from DiGiCo, Soundcraft and Studer via the new MTA-64 (MADI-TP) adapter.

Rycote windshields and microphone suspension systems are designed for capturing audio, whilst at the same time preventing wind and handling noise and preserving the microphone’s natural frequency response.
