Nixer partners with Video Signal in Italy
Nixer has appointed Video Signal as our partner and distributor in Italy for our range of audio monitoring units. Nixer has a long pedigree of designing high end audio products for the Broadcast, Live and Theatre markets for over 20 years. Just over 2
years ago, Nixer started designing and manufacturing their own products under the brand
name Nixer Pro Audio. Nick Fletcher, CEO, saw a requirement for a robust and easily deployed product to help Engineers maintain, diagnose and monitor audio within their Dante® audio IP networks.
The first product, PD Dante, set the trend and offers a compact, hand-held portable device that allows the monitoring of up to 64 Dante channels at 48kHz (32 channels at 96kHz). The unit goes beyond simple confidence monitoring and allows route subscriptions to be made and network configurations changed via PIN protected menus.
Alessandro Trezzi from Video Signal commented “We think this is an exciting time to partner with Nixer. They have a strong and growing range of Dante® AoIP products which provide Operators and Engineers with the necessary tools required in the exacting Live, Install and Broadcast environments. With a broad range of capabilities, be it confidence monitoring, network routing, configuration and testing there is a unit to match all applications.”
The current suite of products allows for Dante audio monitoring with quick, intuitive and easy to use interfaces, removing the need for engineers or operators to carry a slow-to-boot and bulky laptop computer for source selection and monitoring. The RL64 Dante offers a compact 64 channel Dante® audio monitoring unit in a shallow 1RU form factor, ideal for OB vans and fly-packs, while the RD64 Dante offers precision Dante® audio monitoring with comprehensive diagnostics and optimised ported speakers in a 2RU enclosure.
All the tools necessary for line-checking, troubleshooting or operator/talent monitoring are readily available in a single device.
Nick Fletcher added “We’re very happy to partner with Video Signal, who are long established in the Italian Broadcast market. Our units are increasingly finding applications within national broadcasters, theatres and many Parliamentary and renowned international financial institutions. We’re always keen to listen and enhance features and we have more products in the pipeline and some exciting new releases planned over the coming year.”
