Consumers have enjoyed an exponential growth in live and on-demand OTT content. Broadcasters are fighting to maintain viewers, facing an increase in complexity and cost: they have to do more with less.
Challenging times call for radical innovations and a fresh approach to broadcast audio. It is our mission to work with our clients to create solutions to address their specific challenges.
The founder of the company, Jeroen Dieks, is an experienced broadcast engineer who has worked for companies like Discovery, Eurosport, NEP and United for over 15 years.
With a specialization in mixing for live events and post production, he developed a number of techniques and methodologies to automate broadcast mixing. Seeing the trend for increased video automation in broadcast workflows, he realized that in comparison audio automation had not had any real break throughs since the 1980’s. He saw a large opportunity to use software and audio DSP to revolutionize the automation of the broadcast mix process. This was the birth of the AutoMix solution.
To develop his vision, he brought onboard two key co-founders, Yorgos Karafotias, an AI, data and computer scientist and Jochem de Jong, a DSP, C++ and audio plugin developer. Working closely with a number of key European broadcast companies, the team developed the prototype of the AutoMix solution. The final solution was released in June 2020.
