6835 SW Macadam (at California)
Frank Grundstein, Director of Sales for Logitek will do a presentation on: Radical Console Designs and Virtual Radio – Radical New Console Designs for Radio and TV
At NAB 2017, Logitek introduced a new Radical design for Audio Consoles for both Radio and TV. By the end of the show, we had won Best of Show awards for both Radio and TV.
We looked at all the things we’ve been doing because we’ve always done it that way and then set out to do things because they needed doing. We eliminated a lot of intimidating physical buttons
and knobs. We combined the physical with the virtual and when we were done, we had a radical new console that had faders and on/off buttons and a touch screen interface that engaged the user
making navigation not only easy, but fun. Just as the smartphone made previous phones look like ancient artifacts, the Helix makes all other consoles look like relics of the past.
At the Radio Show 2017 we introduced JetLink, a high quality, ultra low latency audio Codec. The broadcast optimized implementation of the Opus Codec, along with the Helix Studio Virtual
Console, will help usher in Virtual Radio and open up a host of low cost options for engaging your audience. We’ll discuss the design criteria, hardware and software choices that led us to developing a
console based on web pages and the reasons why we think the Helix console, the console for the smartphone generation, and the JetLink, will be in your future.
