New JetLink Beta Released

November 7th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “New JetLink Beta Released”

Logitek released a new beta version of its JetLink software codec over the weekend, and the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

While we still have some known issues to solve which are noted in the release notes, our team is releasing weekly updates and responding to the feedback from our beta testers.

JetLink replaces your old hardware codecs with software that sends broadcast quality audio between two computers using the Opus codec. With ISDN lines being phased out around the world and radio becoming more virtualized, we think the time is now for a software solution.

There’s still time to join the beta program at jetlink.co and try our remote software for free.

Logitek Partners Up with Broadcast Partners To Bring Helix to IBC, Western Europe

September 13th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Logitek Partners Up with Broadcast Partners To Bring Helix to IBC, Western Europe”

Houston – USA /  Terneuzen – The Netherlands, September 13th, 2017 – Today, Logitek Electronic Systems and Broadcast Partners announced that they will cooperate in launching the award winning Helix audio console in Western Europe.

At IBC 2017, September 15 – 19 2017 in Amsterdam RAI, Logitek’s Helix will be demonstrated live in a full multimedia environment at the Broadcast Partners booth. Helix will be shown in a 12 fader- and master module configuration connected to the Jetstream mainframe and integrated to AerOn Studio, the full option playout software product from Broadcast Partners.

Winner of the NewBay Best of Show award from Radio Magazine at the 2017 NAB Show, Helix is the modern new audio AoIP console from Logitek. Tap or swipe on Helix’s touchscreens to change sources, make bus assignments, or add EQ and dynamics to easily configure your mix. When your eyes need to be elsewhere while on the air, motorized faders and large on/off buttons make it easy to mix audio eyes-free. Or, put your console on a sheet of glass with Helix Studio, the virtual console that works both as a standalone console or a remote control for a physical Helix. It’s a radically different approach to audio consoles.

At IBC 2017, Logitek Helix will be available at Broadcast Partners in hall 8, stand C81.

August 27th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Logitek’s Main Office Has Reopened Following Hurricane”

UPDATE 8/30/17 8AM – Logitek’s main Houston office has reopened.

Our fax line is currently down, but all other phone lines are operating normally.

UPDATE 8/29/17 6PM – Crews from CenterPoint Energy are repairing the lines in front of our building now. We expect to open the office tomorrow morning, Wednesday August 30th.

Logitek’s main office in Houston is closed today, Monday August 28th, due to Hurricane Harvey.

Our Houston staff is safe and accounted for. Our building has no damage, but there is no power. Because of the catastrophic flooding that Houston is currently experiencing, the electric utility cannot estimate how long it will take for crews to restore power.

Due to the power outage, our main office number, 713-664-4470, and our support toll free number, 877-231-5870, are out of service. All of our staff is available via their normal email addresses.

Our sales office is located in Philadelphia and open as normal. Sales may be reached at 800-231-5870.

We will reopen the Houston office when power is restored.

Logitek Partners With Australian Dealer To Open New R&D Center

February 28th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Logitek Partners With Australian Dealer To Open New R&D Center”

Houston, Texas — Logitek Electronic Systems has partnered with its long-term Australian distributor, Logitek Australia, to open a new Research & Development facility in Sydney, Australia. The facility is based inside Logitek Australia’s high-tech Sydney office, which has dedicated spaces for development, support, equipment testing and demonstration. The new engineering center will initially focus on software and applications, having already commenced a ground-up rewrite of Logitek’s suite using the latest software development tools.

Led by Paul Dengate, Managing Director of Logitek Australia, the team includes software and application designers with years of experience in broadcast audio.
Max Healey has joined the Logitek Australia R&D team as System Architect, heading up all software development and documentation. “Max has been writing software and web applications for radio and satellite syndication since the 1990s, and intricately understands how to make bullet-proof software for 24/7 environments,” said Dengate.  Max’s solutions have won him 3 Australian Commercial Radio Awards for Engineering Excellence.

Phil Hertenberger has been promoted from within Logitek Australia to take on an Application Developer role. Prior to that, Phil was responsible for writing configurations and scripts for Logitek Australia’s ABC Regional Rollout, so has many years of experience in programming and solving customer problems. “Max and Phil both got their start in radio & TV, so intimately understand the needs of operators and on-air talent,” Dengate said.

Tag Borland, President of Logitek Electronics Systems, noted “Our current software has evolved over many years, but with the move to the glass-cockpit concept and even more screens, it was time for a new approach to our user interface. Logitek Australia has always helped us with testing and documentation, and when they expressed an interest in taking over our software development, it seemed a natural fit. That lets us focus in Houston on new hardware and designs, while the Aussies worry about the UI and software.”

Paul Dengate said “I’ve been working with Tag & Logitek for 16 years, and always been impressed at their ability to tailor products to new customer needs whilst still supporting existing users with long-term support and backward compatibility. Combining our decades of Logitek, audio, IP and control experience means the new partnership will take Logitek well into the future with the latest innovations for broadcast. We’re all really looking forward to showing off our efforts at NAB in April.”

The two teams are working on a number of product releases for 2017/18, including innovative touch solutions which will be unveiled at the upcoming NAB show, booth C1322. The Logitek Australia R&D team will join Logitek’s US personnel at the booth to answer questions on the new products.
