Santa Rosa, CA (November 6, 2008) - EMG has announced the completion of a new cutting-edge Audio/Video studio known as “The Cube.” The studio was constructed to provide content for EMG’s web-based media player highlighting EMG’s endorsers as well as a demonstration facility for the company’s products. State of the art in every way, the core of the facility is the AVID Nitrous editing system, which is linked up to a system of top of the line HD broadcast quality cameras, pro-audio, and custom lighting systems.
