The Renegade Mission
Our mission at Renegade Labs is to provide broadcast professionals the tools they need to produce audio to the same high standards they demand of their video.
We accomplish this by designing into our products the features needed by video professionals. Features such as uncompromising audio quality using top of the line audio chipsets and circuit designs; audio with a vibrancy and depth commensurate to the video experience. By crafting a user interface that matches the workflow and operating requirements of video—not music—production. And by delivering the product quality and after-sales support needed in an industry where missing a deadline is not an option.
We understand that video professionals live in a rapidly evolving world of new technology and changing customer requirements. However, the more imminent challenge is often to get real work done every day with tried-and-true gear that works efficiently with existing workflows, yet expands to embrace the new technology when appropriate. The Renegade product line is designed for these professionals—with new products and new features for existing products introduced on a regular basis while maintaining the compatability neded for getting work done today.
Welcome to Audio for Video the Renegade way!
The Renegade Solutions
The Renegade product lineup includes the stand-alone Blue|328 and Gray|328 audio mixers, along with the rack-mountable 328|MXE and the new M16 audio mixer. All mixers include the features necessary for working with audio in today's video environment, including AES and NTSC/PAL/HD sync, eight bus program and monitoring outputs for surround or multi-channel production, and analog, digital and SDI audio I/O capability.
The Blue|328 is perfect for NLE suites, mobile trucks and other applications where a powerful yet compact audio mixer is needed.
The Gray|328 has the same compact form factor as the Blue|328, and adds a PST bus and ESAM edit control for a perfect fit in linear edit suites.
The 328|MXE is a 3RU audio engine that comes in either Blue or Gray trim, or as a stand-alone product for OEM applications. The 328|MXE is ideal for facilities that prefer to keep the audio connections in the equipment room.
Introducing our next generation of digital audio mixers: The M16. This powerful mixer pairs a new sophisticated 16 fader control surface with the standalone 3RU 328|MXE chassis. The M16 capable of handling even the toughest surround sound mixing jobs.
Introducing Loudness Measurement Software for Renegade Mixers
Renegade Labs has introduced new loudness measurement software for the 328 Series of Digital Audio Mixers. Users can now quickly and easily measure the audio loudness level and the peak level for loudness compliance in real-time using the ITU-R BS.1770-2 gated algorithm. The loudness level and peak level are displayed on the mixer's Meter View along with a Play/Pause/Reset button for controlling the loudness operations. A new Loudness Menu allows for the loudness measurement to follow the mixer's Monitor Mode or custom configurations can be created.
By using the mixer's flexible input architecture loudness can be measured on Analog, AES/EBU-format digital, or SD/HD SDI De-embedded audio sources. Since the loudness measurement is performed on the mixer's program buses any combination of inputs can be measured for loudness.
The new loudness measurement software now comes standard on all Renegade Digital Audio Mixers and existing customers can upgrade, free of charge, from the software download page.
