Broadcast Console Evolution


Frank Grundstein, Director of Sales, Logitek Electronic Systems

At NAB 2017, Logitek introduced a new Radical design for Audio Consoles for both Radio and TV. By the end of the show, we had won Best of Show awards for both Radio and TV.

We looked at all the things we’ve been doing because we’ve always done it that way and then set out to do things because they needed doing. We eliminated a lot of intimidating physical buttons and knobs. We combined the physical with the virtual and when we were done, we had a radical new console that had faders and on/off buttons and a touch screen interface that engaged the user making navigation not only easy but fun. Just as the smartphone made previous phones look like ancient artifacts, the Helix makes all other consoles look like relics of the past.
