The BBC has signed Prism Sound to a contract to maintain its SADiE workstations.

Prism recently acquired the business and intellectual property rights of SADiE, which had been owned by Studio Audio and Video Ltd., as we reported. Now Prism says it has signed a three-year contract with the corporation to maintain the broadcaster’s SADiE PC-based digital audio workstation products.

The BBC has more than 800 SADiE systems, most of them in Portland Place and Bush House in London, with others in regional U.K. offices.

Prism Sound said with this arrangement, the BBC has “re-affirmed its longstanding commitment to SADiE digital audio workstations and LRX2 digital audio mixers.”


Prism Sound LRX2 Adds DSP to SADiE LRX

Prism Sound says its LRX2 multitrack location recording workstation is suitable for producing location multitrack audio recordings for release on distributed media such as CD or DVD. The unit is based on the SADiE LRX, and adds extra DSP power and control surface enhancements, enabling the user to record up to 48 discrete inputs at 48 kHz/24 bit (or up to 32 tracks at 96 kHz/24 bit) from various dedicated input cards.
