Sound Devices has announced that the 552 Production Mixer has been nominated for a Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the small format console technology category.
Sound Devices 552 Production Mixer is the company’s first to feature a fully integrated digital audio recorder.
Ideal for both simple run-and-gun applications and in complex multi-input/multi-output production setups, Sound Devices 552 is an extremely portable audio mixer.
Designed specifically for professional sound engineers, Sound Devices 552 contains five precision, high-dynamic range, transformer-balanced microphone inputs with expanded gain and headroom.
The studio-grade inputs have their own limiter, sweepable high-pass filter and pre- or post-fade direct output.
At the heart of each microphone input lies a high-performance Lundahl input transformer, which provides freedom from interference in even the most severe RF and EMI environments that are encountered in the field.
“We are honored to once again be nominated for a TEC Award in the Outstanding Technical Achievement category, this year for our new 552 Production Mixer,” says Jon Tatooles, managing director of Sound Devices.
“It’s very rewarding to be recognized year after year by such a prestigious organization for our dedication to developing innovative products specifically for field and on-location recording.”
