The Oracle Newsletter – November 2016

Oracle Logo

Welcome to the latest Oracle where we’ve just finished a very full couple of months hosting international visitors, attending exhibitions, organising technical workshops and now the Christmas countdown is on! Earlier last month we were delighted to welcome John Abdnour from Nautel for a series of customer presentations followed by Orban audio processing technical workshops a few weeks ago. We sincerely thank Peter Lee and Peter van Beusekom from Orban Europe for making the long haul trip to Oz to conduct these sessions and appreciate the great response received from broadcasters and systems integrators across the country.

In between all of that was our first exhibition at the Sportscasting Conference and Expo in Melbourne where we showcased the full range of Sonifex talkback and commentary units along with Tieline’s latest award winning remote codec, the ViA. Thanks to the many visitors who stopped by our stand during the show.

As 2016 idraws to a close, I’d like to wish our customers, supplier partners and friends a very happy Christmas and New Year. Thank you for your support throughout the past 12 months and I hope 2017 is a great year for you all.

Orban Workshops logoorban

Earlier this month we welcomed Peter Lee, VP Orban Europe and Peter Van Beusekom, Senior Technical Support Engineer Orban Europe to Australia for a series of audio processing technical workshops and presentations. The whirlwind tour included Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney and was very well received by engineers and systems integrators. Special thanks to Malcolm Sully and Matt Steadman from Nova Entertainment and Michael Cooper and Ben Zoumpoulis of SCA for the use of facilities and equipment during some of the presentations.

For anyone who may have missed out on the opportunity to attend, don’t forget we have a range of Orban demo equipment available for trial including three models of Optimod FM processors (5500FM, 5700FM and 8600s FM/HD) and the new PCn1600 processing software. To arrange a demo of any of these products, please contact us at [email protected].
