December 2012 – Analog Way is pleased to announce the introduction of a brand new generation of high-end innovative systems for signal processing and distribution, based on their new state-of-the-art LiveCoreTM platform.

In the process of an ambitious corporate overhaul, Analog Way has initiated deep changes over the last three years. The goal: To reach the next level of innovation and quality, and to better serve customers. The company has made strong investments in Research & Development and has worked to optimize processes to offer the finest quality in design and production.
As a result of these improvements, today Analog Way proudly introduces a new generation of high-end AV processors dedicated to the System Integration and Rental & Staging markets. NeXtage 16 and SmartMatriX Ultra, the first LiveCore-based new generation systems, will be unveiled as a world-premiere during ISE 2013 in Analog Way’s booth #11-F58. They were conceived and designed based on careful analysis of customers’ needs and suggestions. They offer both highly innovative functionalities and first-rate quality of manufacture and design.
Adrien Corso, Analog Way’s CEO, explains: “The design of the LiveCore platform was the biggest Research & Development project ever undertaken by the company so far. It showcases Analog Way’s expertise in true-live AV processing technologies and underlines our ambition to remain at the forefront in this field. Our new LiveCore-based systems should be of great value to our customers in the forthcoming years.”
Franck Facon, Analog Way’s Marketing & Communications Director, adds: “Our customers have been pressing us for a long time to complete our offering with high-end processors above our well-established Di-VentiX series. The team took the time to put the company in perfect order before taking up that challenge. We’re now excited to bring LiveCore and this new generation of processors to the market: it feels like writing a new page in Analog Way’s history.”
