RIO RANCHO, NEW MEXICO: Wireless microphone and audio processing manufacturer Lectrosonics is included on a new educational website about manufacturing in New Mexico.
Documentary video producer Jim Terr of Santa Fe, New Mexico, says it was his enthusiasm for the factory-visit films he used to see in grade school, and which he's seen periodically since then, which inspired his new website, www.ManuFlix.com.
The website features downloadable "how it's made" videos produced for promotional and informational purposes by manufacturers of all sorts. Among these is a three-minute segment shot in the Lectrosonics factory in Rio Rancho. This same segment is featured on the Lectrosonics website accessible from the "Tour the Factory" quick link on the home page.
Terr produced a documentary called "Six-Minute Manufacturing," exploring the manufacturing processes at eight New Mexico plants, which has been distributed to schools and libraries nationwide. It was due to the response to this video, and the potential for promoting New Mexico as a manufacturing site, that The McCune Charitable Foundation and The New Mexico Economic Development Department provided initial support to launch the new ManuFlix.com site. ManuFlix.com is accepting submissions from manufacturers, and will be offering a monthly DVD series of these videos, which will be made available to subscribers.
Since its formation in 1971, Lectrosonics has grown to become a premier firm specializing in the design and creation of professional audio technologies. Alongside creating audio processing gear such as the DM Series, Lectrosonics is a leading innovator of wireless audio technology with many professionals as ardent fans within the broadcasting, motion picture, and television industries.
