Audio Developments are a British company that specialise in broadcast audio mixers. At the show they were demonstrating an interesting mixer aimed at Canon DSLRs and especially the 5D mkII. The AD071 is a three channel mixer with limiters designed to compete with the popular Juicedlink and Sound Devices MixPre-D products. It is quite lightweight but yet feels robust. It has a multi-segment LED audio level meter is very nice to use. It has an attenuated unbalanced output for going direct into a DSLR as well as twin XLR outputs for feeding a professional video camera.
