At the 2008 NAB Show, Neumann exhibited its TLM 103 D microphone alongside a DiGiCo console with direct support for AES 42.
The TLM 103 D features an integrated peak limiter and built-in A-to-D converter.
“This ensures that the legendary Neumann sound is captured unchanged on the user’s hard disc, with optimal quality,” stated Neumann President of Marketing and Sales Wolfgang Fraissinet. “The addition of the DiGiCo console connection gives an added benefit to our customers by eliminating the need to use an external workstation, which makes the process even easier.”
“Although the AES 42 protocol was developed in 2001, the interconnection with consoles has moved slowly,” stated DiGiCo Marketing Director David Webster. “Back then, the use of digital consoles still wasn’t that wide reaching. However, with their onslaught across the market, the desire to be able to stay digital throughout the audio chain is much greater.
