|Steinberg is displaying a new first-class synchronizer device tailored to the needs of post-production for its Nuendo Media Production System. To be developed in close cooperation with the renowned hardware manufacturer CB Electronics, a prototype of the new as yet unnamed device is on display at Steinberg’s booth #926 at the 121st AES convention in San Francisco.
“We’re very excited to be developing a first-class new synchronizer for Nuendo together with Colin Broad of CB
Electronics, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hardware for post production,” says Lars Baumann, Steinberg’s
Senior Product Manager for Nuendo. “Despite the current trend towards accomplishing ever more tasks using video within
DAWs, many post people still have a requirement to integrate their audio workstation with other devices. The new
hardware will couple the open, innovative and scalable Nuendo DAW technology with Colin’s 25 years of experience and
his outstanding technical know-how in his field,” he continues.
Colin Broad, founder of CB Electronics comments: “Nuendo is regarded as one of the leading software solutions for post
production, so it seemed natural to collaborate with Steinberg to come up with a fully-featured synchronizing device
tailored for the post production market. We’re sure the results will be outstanding.”
The new unit will be fitted with a wide range of physical interfaces for machine control and synchronization, including
support for LTC, MTC/MMC, Sony 9-Pin machine control, Sony 9-pin emulation, Wordclock and GPIO. The
synchronizer will be tightly integrated with Steinberg’s Nuendo Media Production System with a sample-accurate VST
System Link connection.
The new hardware will complete the existing Nuendo feature set for synchronization and machine control. It will offer
locking not only to a variety of reference sources such as AES/EBU signals, but also to video reference including tri-level
sync signals from HD video devices. Two RS-422 ports will enable Nuendo to act either as a Sony 9-Pin Controller or
Device. As a 9-pin controller, Nuendo will slave to either LTC or VITC with a single serial connection. The new hardware
will interface with the Nuendo software via USB and establishes near sample accurate sync using a VST System Link
connection to the computer’s audio interface with help of any commonly used digital connection such as RCA, BNC, XLR
