USER TESTIMONIALS : DPA CHOOSES PYRAMIX FOR DEMO AND TEST STUDIO
It’s always nice to see manufacturers of state of the art equipment grow towards each other. Recently DPA, the renowned microphone manufacturer, chose to install Pyramix in their test facilities. The studio is used as a showroom, demo lounge as well as test center for microphones and other pro audio gear for the R&D Department. This is where surround sound research and experiments with configurations and mics are done.
DPA wouldn’t compromise on quality in neither their own mics nor the equipment they use. That’s why only state of the art gear was installed. The latest acquisition is a Merging Pyramix Virtual Studio that enables them to record and edit audio in Digital eXtreme Definition (DXD), or 24-bit / 352.8 kHz. It is an excellent match to the clarity and dynamic range of DPA microphones.
The studio is also used for educational purposes and quite a few artists have visited it. Some have even used the facilities to record their music for future publishing. In short, an ideal place to realize the difference between a good and a truly great reproduction.
In networked media configurations storage, and its accessibility, has a tremendous impact on the effectivity of engineers reading, writing and streaming media. The choice of a reliable and robust storage system therefore isn’t always obvious.
To lighten your choice a bit when choosing the appropriate storage solution for your configuration, Merging has tested and validated Promise Technologies VessRAID system.
VessRAID is a dual ports SAS to SAS/SATA RAID storage system that can carry up to 16 hot-swappable SAS/SATA drives in a 2U/3U chassis. It features an on board Intel dual core processor for an improved read-write performance, 512MB cache (extendible up to 2GB) and a promising 880MB/s disk sequential throughput. Disks can be configured in every current RAID level.
If you are looking for an audio/video streaming solution, you need to store audio libraries or archive projects, VessRAID can be a good candidate.
