(click thumbnail)DDA-212Audio Technologies Inc. and DaySequerra, both divisions of ATI Group Inc., will have their own booths at the show. DaySequerra will be in N5129 and ATI will occupy N5229. The two are back-to-back in the North Hall.
DaySequerra, which makes HD Radio modulation monitors and HD Radio tuners among other pro audio/broadcast gear, will debut a line of HD Radio-ready analog mod monitors, and new remote control and diagnostic software.
ATI will highlight its ATI Digital Audio line, and is introducing a number of products for broadcast, recording, post-production and AV, including 192 kHz digital distribution amplifiers; master clock distribution amplifier; digital audio test set and monitor; and A/D, D/A and sample rate converter.
ATI has four new DDA models, all featuring up to 192 kHz sample rates and 24 bit resolution. Dubbed “Series 2,” they offer switchable re-clocking, giving users the option to correct for high-jitter input signals, or to pass coded surround signals without interference.
The DDA-106XLR is a two-input, 1 x 6 with XLR I/O; DDA-106BNC is a two-input, 1 x 6 with BNC I/O; DDA-212XLR can function as a two-input 1 x 12 or Dual 1 x 6 with XLR I/O; and DDA-212BNC can function as a two-input 1 x 12 or Dual 1 x 6 with BNC I/O.
Each unit has front-panel selectable dual inputs and input loop-through with switchable termination, and displays input sample rate, word length, digital errors and Pro/Consumer mode to enable confidence checks and troubleshooting. Additional highlights include automatic equalization for long input lines, and a front-panel control lock to protect user configuration settings.
Sneak Peeks asked the company’s Art Constantine to expand on the difference in the two lines.
“ATI’s products go beyond radio. Our analog distribution amplifiers are used in sports stadiums and other large venues. Our digital DAs are used in touring sound, recording studios and post production. Anyone who works with audio needs ATI’s format converters. ATI makes headphone amplifiers in 1, 4 and 6 channel models.” He said home music and A/V installers use ATI distribution baluns, which send audio and video over CAT-5 cable, bi-directionally. ATI’s portable mic mixers are used for remote broadcast, both radio and TV, as well as film sound. The company also sells a high-end phono preamp for audiophiles.
“By contrast, DaySequerra’s product line is almost entirely restricted to radio broadcast, since DS makes HD Radio modulation monitors and professional HD Radio tuners.” He said DaySequerra will introduce a working model of its M2A-FM HD Radio-Ready Analog FM Modulation Monitor. “This moves DaySequerra into the larger world of analog FM broadcasting, both in the U.S. and internationally.”
