The CEDAR DNS3000 is nominated for a Resolution Award 2009

CEDAR DNS3000 dialogue noise suppressor

7 April 2009

As a result of requests from readers and manufacturers to credit excellence where it is due, the Resolution Awards 2009 will celebrate quality and innovation in professional audio equipment. Nominations for the inaugural awards have now been announced, and we are proud that the CEDAR DNS3000 dialogue noise suppressor has been included in a short-list of just four products in the Processor category.

Only registered readers of Resolution magazine are eligible to vote and, in an unusual move, the magazine has stated that votes from manufacturers will be identified and discarded. Zenon Schoepe, editor of Resolution magazine, says of the Awards, "It's time to recognise and reward the core values of quality and innovation that underpin our industry and to get away from accolades that merely trivialise and pay lip-service to the effort involved. You can expect Resolution Awards, like the magazine, to be different from the rest and they will be decided by the best qualified readership that there is. A Resolution Award will have genuine value."

The nomimations were decided by a panel of experts with an enormous wealth of combined experience across different disciplines: Cameron Craig, Peter Schmidt, Tony Faulkner, Ben Hillier, Jerry Boys, Massimo Scarparo, Phil Horne, Taylan Oguz, Steven Ghouti, Ben Muscat, Darcy Proper, David Mollerstedt, Edwin Pfanzagl, Ken Nelson, Paul Borg, Mick Glossop, Steve Lipson, Iain Roberton, Florian Camerer, Francois Lamoureux, Bob Kraushaar, Dean Humphreys, Steve Williams, Chris Porter, Paul Epworth, Wes Maebe, Hudson Fair, Bob Katz, Chris Tsangarides, Steve Rhodes, Roger Beardsley, Donal Hodgson, Jon Thornton, Philip Newell, Rob James, Andy Day, Nigel Jopson, Dan Daley, and Zenon Schoepe.

About the DNS3000

Already the winner of a prestigious Cinema Audio Society Award in 2009, the DNS3000 is the latest generation of CEDAR's Dialogue Noise Suppression technology, combining the tactile control surface of the DNS1500 with the Pro Tools integration of the DNS2000, plus much more. Additional features include on-board scenes with a simple and intuitive recall system, automation to LTC timecode, moving faders and sample rates up to 96kHz. The hardware provides the processing power and audio I/O, and near-zero latency continues to ensure that there is no loss of lip-sync. With CEDAR's Academy Award® winning DNS algorithm at its core, the DNS3000 eliminates all manner of noises from recordings and live transmissions.
