‘Most successful’ PLASA yet for Optocore4 October 2010
The network technology specialist highlighted a number of its latest developments, including the new DD32R network interface. In displays dotted around the Optocore stand, the Munich-based company introduced PLASA Show visitors to every aspect of the ring topology approach.
Along with the new DD32R – which offers an expanded feature-set including reduced carbon footprint and 40% decrease in price – Optocore introduced its Multiple Emulation Mode (MEM) software, which allows up to four mixing consoles to control Optocore analogue devices, plus an unlimited number of computers.
Also new was an AES/EBU I/O card for the company’s X6R 16-channel converters, as well as firmware for the DD4ME MADI network device that allows Avid consoles to operate on Optocore networks.
Away from the busy showfloor, Optocore founder Marc Brunke participated in the IE/PSNE-presented AVNetworks 2010 event – a full account of which can be read here.
Looking back on PLASA 2010, Optocore sales and marketing director Tine Helmle observed: “We received many high-quality international clients over the four days, who were hugely enthusiastic about the new digital devices with Ethernet, which we presented. I think that being able to immerse themselves in the network gave our clients a fourth dimension, which impressed them enormously.”
