Neutrik USA Donation Upgrades NewMediaGear.com To HD

After three
years and more than 300 audio broadcasts, NewMediaGear.com, producer of
gear-related weekly audio podcasts, is integrating HD video production
with its audio podcasts, for a mix of rich-media content development
and
distribution. Neutrik USA
has donated several products to ease the company’s transition to HD
video.

“Video
gives us a tremendous advantage because now we are able to show products in
great detail,” says Mark Jensen, general manager and host of NewMediaGear.com.
“When we decided to make the transition to HD, Neutrik was the natural choice,
as they contributed to the audio connectivity of Studio1A a few years
back. Since then., we have branded Studio 1A as a Neutrik-only studio.”

NewMediaGear.com was looking for a broadcast patch-panel solution
that would allow it to patch between its FM broadcast processor,
video-camera audio, and audio-only interfaces. Neutrik provided the
solution with its “Easy Patch” patch panel, featuring 2×48 TT (Bantam)
jacks, a half-normalled bottom row, and 288 push terminals
(NPPA-TT-PT). The company also supplied several of its connector
products to NewMediaGear.com: six reversible USB gender changers
(NAUSB-B); six hinged covers for D-size chassis connectors (SCDX); 12
X-Series three-pole ¼-inch professional phone plugs (NP3X); six 3.5-mm
Tiny Plug three-pole 3.5-mm audio plugs (NTP3RC); 12 three-pole female
DLX series receptacles (-NC3FD-LX-B), and 12 three-pole male DLX Series
receptacles (NC3MD-LX-B).

To help
illustrate why Neutrik is one of its top choices for connectivity solutions,
NewMediaGear.com will create an HD Neutrik video, demonstrating a real-world
professional solution using Neutrikproducts that will be featured on
its national syndication. The program will also highlight Neutrik’s
commitment to manufacturing quality connector products; the need for patching,
even in the digital age, along with the differences between bantam,
standard, and ganged connections.

“Neutrik is
more than willing to help Mark as his company evolves,” says Fred Besnoff,
product applications manager at Neutrik USA. “NewMediaGear covers matters
that are critical to Neutrik’s users and the entire audio-broadcast industry as
a whole. The show’s live equipment reviews provide listeners and potential end
users with excellent insight on audio products. We look forward to seeing
the Neutrik video they are currently working on.”

Studio 1A
is treated with Auralex AudioTile sound reinforcement and gear from many of the
industry’s leading professional-audio manufacturers: Aphex 230 Master
Voice strips and 2020MkIII FM Broadcast Processor, AudioArts R-55 Radio On-Air
Console, Dorrough loudness meters, and Symetrix AirTools 6200 two-channel voice
strip. The Broadcast Studio is equipped with Sony AW Series Desktop
Replacements running Adobe CS4 Suites, Audition 3.0, and Sony Sound Forge. HD
video is being integrated with Panasonic HVX-200A solid-state P2 video cameras

editor. A Tascam DV-RA1000, Marantz PMD-560, and Alesis Masterlink are used for
