Offering some positive news in the face of the bad economy, Euphonix has announced that its professional products division had strong sales in Q4, posting its best annual revenues in more than 10 years. Key sales included multiple dual-operator System 5 film mixing systems to Todd-AO Hollywood, as well as individual System 5 orders in Japan for Shochiku Pictures and TV audio post house Yomiuri Eizo. Broadcast console sales were also strong with orders from CBC-Vancouver, Zhejiang TV in China and both Univision and Telemundo in Puerto Rico.
Euphonix credits widespread acceptance of the EuCon control protocol by other audio manufacturers with helping sales. EuCon allows seamless integration of digital audio workstation functionality to Euphonix control surfaces, passing commands and fader movers to any workstation and receiving control status, metering, EQ and pan information. The company’s growing list of participating third parties includes Apple (Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro), Digidesign Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Metric Halo, Propellerheads, Steinberg, Pyramix and Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU).
“Each time a new manufacturer adopts EuCon, the value of each client’s investment in our production solutions increases,” said CEO Martin Kloiber. “Many clients are initially exposed to EuCon as a result of our Artist Series media controllers’ success,” he said. “We now see that exposure transitions to much wider application support within our professional line, which also uses EuCon control."
Building on this recent success, Euphonix has signed a lease on a new corporate headquarters, housing offices, engineering and manufacturing. The company’s new location is in the Silicon Valley town of Mountain View, CA. The new facility is significantly greener that the former location, and it provides a much-needed increase in the amount of space for operations. The move is expected to take place in May.
