Aaton-Digital wins CINEC Award for its 24 track digital audio recorder
Aaton Digital’s new Cantar-X3 24 track digital audio recorder has received a prestigious Cinec Award, presented on September 22 in Munich, Germany, during the Cinec Expo. The award was presented to Aaton-Digital & Transvideo CEO Jacques Delacoux by the Society of CineTechnik Bayern e.V. (CTB, formerly Bavarian Society for the Advancement of Film Technology), and awarded in the category of innovative and trendsetting products and developments in Motion Picture Technology.
The Cantar X-3 recorder, unveiled recently at the IBC 2014 Expo in Amsterdam, also received the ‘Best of Show’ Award voted by AudioMedia magazine readers.
At Cinec, on receiving the Cinec Award, Jacques Delacoux said “These two awards recognise the outstanding work done by the Aaton-Digital team and already place the machine as the ultimate On-Location digital audio recorder.”
The Aaton Cantar- X3 was designed by the same team that created its predecessor. It combines the ergonomics of the X2 and its outstanding microphone preamplifiers, which have been redesigned to improve filtering possibilities and reduce further the noise level. There are also new functionalities such as optional Audinate’s Dante IP networking, while additional features are accessed through an improved human interface with new display based menu control. Sister company Transvideo designed the display.
Extended linear faders, smooth rotary knobs and silent switches are provided for a practical working environment. External devices can be simultaneously linked to the Cantar X3 through widely used audio and computer connectors adding new capabilities for this machine to be scalable for the next 20 years.
