DSP Media, Inc., manufacturer and distributor of high-end audio post-production systems, announced today they have entered into a definitive software development agreement with Rocket Network, a San Francisco-based Internet infrastructure company that has pioneered audio collaboration and post-production project sharing technology.
In this agreement, DSP Media will develop future software releases to integrate into their Postation II digital audio workstation that will allow users to logon to the online production and collaboration capabilities of Rocket Network. The integration will allow different manufacturers' sequencers and audio editors to collaborate simultaneously on a given project. Currently rounding out the list of Rocket Network's development partners are Emagic, Steinberg, Cubase, Euphonix, Digidesign (Avid), Waveframe and DSP.
"This alliance will help establish DSP as a leading force in Internet project sharing for audio post-production. DSP will start work on integrating Rocket Network's API into our DEP editor and perhaps the TEAM network and AVtransfer packages," said Andrew Wild, CEO for DSP Media. "One of the big advantages this brings to DSP is that it will enable our users to share projects via the Internet with Pro Tools users, something we have never been able to do in the past."
Pam Miller, President and CEO of Rocket Network added, "We are very excited that DSP Media will be adding Rocket Power to their post-production tools. The main benefit of online collaboration is that it will enable DSP customers to complete even more projects in an even more time and cost efficient manner giving them a real competitive advantage."
DSP Media designs, manufactures, and distributes integrated solutions in digital audio post-production for radio, television and film. Headquarters, sales and marketing are based in Los Angeles with R&D, engineering and manufacturing located in Sydney, Australia.
