The new RMio64-D Dante/MADI converter for broadcast and live sound applications
UK - Although absent for PLASA London's move to ExCel in 2013, Yamaha Commercial Audio returns to the show this year to help fly the flag for the professional sound industry.

Exhibiting on Stand B85, Yamaha will be highlighting its new RMio64-D Dante/MADI converter for broadcast and live sound applications, as well as the new Version 3 software for CL and QL digital mixing consoles. Both launched at IBC Amsterdam on 12 September, PLASA London will be their first showing at a UK trade event.

The RMio64-D allows audio from a CL/QL (or other Dante-equipped) mixing system to be converted to MADI and fed to an OB vehicle or other recording facility. Alternatively, it can allow a MADI-based console to be easily integrated into Yamaha's Nuage system for audio post-production.

Bringing a range of enhancements to CL and QL consoles, Version 3 software will be of particular interest to broadcasters as it adds a comprehensive range of broadcast-friendly features to all models. These include, for the first time, onboard Dan Dugan automixing for the CL series.

PLASA 2014 will also be one of the first UK trade shows where visitors are able to get 'hands on' with the highly successful QL1 and QL5 compact consoles - launched at this year's ProLight+Sound and already adopted in significant numbers by many rental companies.

Also on show will be a range of the company's CIS installation products - including amplifiers, loudspeakers and matrix processors.

"As well as industry professionals, many students visit PLASA London each year. They are the audio engineers of the future and we are just as keen to demonstrate the many advantages of Yamaha digital audio systems to potential users, as we are to support our many existing ones," says Karl Christmas, sales & marketing manager at Yamaha Commercial Audio (UK & ROI).

"Having exhibited for many years at PLASA when it was at Earl's Court, we look forward to the new experience of ExCel and meeting many friends and colleagues, both old and new, at the show."
