Larry Jordan: That’s very cool. Well, this is NAB and this is new technology. What have you got that’s new for us today?

Ulrike Lauterbach: We brought our new distribution product. On top to our Bown products, we have now acquired a product from a partner company and we are doing worldwide sales for it.

LJ: And that partner company is?

UL: That is Nixer from the UK. They have manufactured a quite nice little tool, the so-called PD-Dante. That’s a diagnostic product so you can monitor your Dante network. It shows up to 64 channels and you can listen into individual channels or you can also use a local mix. It provides loudspeakers or you can connect headphones.

LJ: That is so cool.

UL: Yeah, it is really helpful. We had a lot of visitors that were looking at the product and saying, “Wow, that’s exactly what I need,” because now a lot of people starting with Dante Network AES67s and that is just helpful for them.

LJ: I want to get back to loudness monitoring because that’s a big issue for a lot of people as the Calm Act here in the US and the standards in the EU are kicking in. How do we decide what level to set, first question, and how do we use your gear to make sure we’re getting the right gear to monitor our levels? Because you’ve got different products, how do we picture pick which one to use?

UL: First of all, we support all the worldwide standards, so no matter if you are in the US or if you are in Europe, which both have different standards of course, you can…

LJ: Why should they be the same?

UL: Yeah, that would be also helpful. Now we have integrated all of them. That’s supported in all of the products and then you’d simply decide how many channels you want to monitor. That would be the first question to answer.
