Transvideo and Aaton Digital at IBC 2017

Transvideo and Aaton Digital showcased their latest monitor/recorders and audio mixer/recorder combos at IBC 2017.

Since Transvideo acquired Aaton Digital in June, 2013, they will be exhibiting together at IBC 2017.

“Transvideo will be highlighting its 7-inch Stargate recorder/monitor with all its crucial operating functions in a new intuitive interface,” Danny Hallett, regional sales manager for Transvideo told The Broadcast Bridge in an exclusive pre-IBC interview. “You won’t have any trouble seeing them because the screen of the 7-inch Stargate has a brightness level of 2000 nits, the same as our new 8-, 10-, 12-inch models.”

Considering that’s often referred to as “daylight readable” brightness, 2000 nits is a considerable level of luminance.

Then Transvideo will also have its Starlite family of 5-inch HD OLED touchscreen monitors,” Hallett said, “with built-in tools including waveform monitor, vectorscope, and histogram, and its menu is customizable with Smart Corner shortcuts.
The Starlight monitors also come in wireless versions that can transmit to up to four receivers.

Based on the innovative StarliteHD core technologies the StarliteHD-evolution (StarliteHD-e,) adds the facility to record lens metadata from intelligent lenses (COOKE/I, or ARRI LDS or ZEISS eXtended Data lenses),” Hallett said.”

From the Aaton Digital side of the business we’ll be introduced to the Cantaress which, as Mel Noonan, communications consultant for Aaton Digital was good enough to explain directly to The Broadcast Bridge. Is an innovative mixing surface that is compatible with both Aaton Digital’s CantarX3 and CantarMini recorders.

“We brought out the CantarX3 two years ago as a replacement for the industry standard CantarX2,” Noonan told us, “adding all the manufacturing techniques that the Transvideo purchase brought with it.”

That brings the CantarX3 up to 24 record tracks and gives it the unique ability to remix some tracks or to add more sound tracks to existing ones. That way the CantarX3 is able to play and record files simultaneously without any latency.

The CantarMini recorder carries on the Cantar legacy at a reduced price.

It even has add-on USB fader panels.

But their latest product takes this one step further.

“At IBC we’ll also be introducing the CantarMini
,” Noonan said. “It utilizes the same technology and circuitry as the CantarX3, with fewer tracks, but at a considerable cost savings.”
