Digigram and Fostex strike licensing pact

Digigram and Fostex Corporation Japan have signed contracts for Fostex to license Digigram's patent-pending EtherSound technology in forthcoming Fostex products.

Under the pact revealed at the AES trade show in Munich, Fostex becomes the first company to adopt the new technology that allows pro-audio teams to design systems with EtherSound using speaker component products and digital control technology.

Digigram announced that other licensing contracts will be signed in the near future. By the end of the year, products by Digigram, Fostex and other companies will form a portfolio of EtherSound-compliant products for the public address and pro sound installation markets.

EtherSound claims to make it easier and cheaper to create low-latency audio networks using standard Ethernet cabling and components. EtherSound is designed to connect digital audio sources to networked audio devices with up to 64 channels of 24-bit digital audio at 48KHz, plus bi-directional control information, transported to a wide array of networked audio devices.

Fostex Corporation manufactures and markets analogue and digital hardware recording, accessories, speakers and microphones to professional and semi-professional users and institutions.

Digigram develops networked audio devices, computer sound cards, and audio management software. Its Digigram Powered products are used in radio and television stations, corporate and commercial sound installations, and audio recording and video post-production facilities.
