Featured Showcase

Microsoft Expression Encoder 4, Adobe Flash Live Media Encoder

by Jan Ozer
If you’re looking for inexpensive alternatives for on-location streaming, you should consider the software-only approach, particularly if you’ve got a powerful i7-based notebook available. In a previous article, I reviewed Telestream Wirecast Pro, which is a very full-featured program capable of multiple camera switching, titling and other production features, as well as live encoding. In this review, I’ll look at two other software programs for live encoding, Microsoft’s Expression Encoder 4 and Adobe Flash Live Media Encoder. more>>

JBL EON 515XT

by John McJunkin
As an audio professional, I’ve been fascinated by the development of small, self-powered, lightweight speakers on a stick. These speakers have vastly simplified the notion of providing good-quality audio without breaking the bank or back of the person who loads in the gear, whether it be a coffee shop guitarist, DJ, presenter, AV professional, or worship sound person. The speakers get smaller, lighter, and better sounding all the time. The manufacturers who create them continue to raise the bar and challenge each other for market domination – the result of which is an ever-improving product. JBL has introduced the latest update to its venerable EON series speaker: the EON 515XT, which is the fourth generation in the line. This revision’s improvements over the original EON 515 include more powerful amplification, increased input sensitivity, a lower noise floor, and improved EQ controls. more>>
