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.
