Cutting-edge recording device aired worldwide
Two Cambridgeshire companies have joined forces to launch what they describe as ‘world-beating’ broadcast audio equipment.Cambridge metalwork company Hitec and the Stretham-based professional audio firm SADiE have unveiled SADiE’s LRX2 location audio workstation.
They say it is one of the most technically advanced location audio recording devices available worldwide for remote projects such as TV and film soundtrack capture, sports event coverage and live music recording.
The LRX2 is the culmination of months of development and refinement and has recently proven itself whilst being used for the soundtrack recording of the BBC’s Sport Relief charity cricket match in Mumbai, India.
SADiE’s managing director Joe Bull said the workstation had been designed to give sound engineers a new level of sound quality and flexibility when working on location.
Since its formation in 1991, SADiE has been a recognised pioneer in the field of high quality digital recording. It estimates that at least 50 per cent of CD’s produced have been mastered and produced with the aid of its equipment.
SADiE production editors are the defacto standard at many major broadcasters worldwide, including the BBC, which has well over a thousand systems involved in radio production.
In both the music and post-production industries, SADiE products are similarly held in high regard and may be seen in daily use at such high profile facilities as the world famous Abbey Road recording studios.
Hitec specialises in providing metalwork to the technology sector and has been closely involved in the mechanical development of the LRX2.
