NEWS NUGEN Audio joins compliance program N UGEN Audio is now participating in the Digital Production Partnership (DPP), an initiative founded by U.K. public service broadcasters to help speed the transition to fully digital production and distribution for television. NUGEN Audio joins other leading broadcast equipment manufacturers who are working with the DPP and the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) on a new compliance and certification program, AS-11 DPP.  Through its Technical Standards group, the DPP is leading an effort to standardize technical and metadata requirements within the U.K. broadcast industry to ensure digital video content can be easily and cost-effectively distributed to audiences via multiple platforms. A subset of the Technical Standards group, the AS-11 DPP program was launched to help further interoperability and create governance around AS-11 DPP compliance in products. A Sound choice for Encore’s upgrade M ulti-award winning post production company Encore has awarded AKA Design the contract to upgrade two of its main sound studios at its Soho facility. Both studios are installing the new Avid S6 consoles which are being supplied by Scrub. AKA have designed a single large 12ft main desk to integrate the S6 around the operator with additional areas for clients and racking. Using solid and veneered walnut, leather and aluminium makes this an impressive statement at the core of the suite. AKA’s MD, Guy Wilson, said “I can’t believe it’s been over 12 years since we originally furnished these suites. I’m delighted that Encore have chosen us again to help make these two Post Production studios both technically and visually current for the next 10 years” Johnny Whitehead Director of Operations said “The original design of our studios has served us well but we wanted to take this opportunity to freshen up the look and take advantage of the reduction in outboard kit needed to support the new S6 consoles. The clever design work from AKA has given us an updated look as well as maximizing client space. We’ve been working with AKA for over 15 years and they always supply us with well designed, well made, technical furniture and just as importantly deliver on time and within budget” New Broadcast Delivery Standards Are you prepared?
