Sony Electronics announced that its DMX-R100 digital mixing console has surpassed the 2,000-units sold worldwide mark since its introduction in October 2000.
"The DMX-R100 has opened a whole new world of sound and flexibility," said Peter Moshay, owner of A-Pawling Studio, located just outside of New York City. The Grammy-nominated producer, mixer and engineer has worked on more than 60 projects with the digital mixer, including numerous Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum albums for such recording artists as Hall & Oates, Mariah Carey, Fishbone and Greg Brown. Moshay says that the Sony digital mixer allows him to achieve an incredible intimacy with his client's material. "The functionality is a stand-out, but the sound is what really sold me," Moshay said. "It is a pleasure to work with this console on a daily basis."
Broadcasters are also adopting the DMX-R100 as a production platform; more than 75 units shipped this spring. For example, the Sinclair Broadcast Group recently decided to standardize with the DMX-R100 for its NewsCentral corporate news production initiative. "The NewsCentral project is an aggressive, crucial, high-profile initiative," said Norman Stein, Sinclair's director of operations. "The DMX-R100 was selected because of its ease of operation and simplicity of integration in the news production environment." Ten units will soon be in service in the initial NewsCentral build-out, distributed throughout the company's 62 stations in 39 markets, according to Stein.
"Our DMX-R100 digital mixer has enjoyed critical success from the start because of its full range of features and superb sonic performance," said Paul Foschino, senior national marketing manager for professional audio at Sony Electronics. "The proof of its excellence is the way it is being embraced across the board. Combined with our ongoing development based on feedback from the field, we've surpassed our goal of creating an essential tool for achieving excellence in almost any production application." Recent additions to the DMX-R100 include the MADI option board, the SIU-100 System Interface Unit and the release of Version 2.22 software.
