Tripp Lite’s PowerAlert Software Updated

Tripp Lite’s Free PowerAlert Software Delivers Enterprise-Level Power Management

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL (August 22, 2008)—Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, has released a new version of its free PowerAlert software. Three specialized components combine to deliver full-featured power management capabilities from desktop to enterprise. PowerAlert Network Management System allows network managers to monitor and control up to 250 UPS systems and power distribution units (PDUs) through a single interface. PowerAlert Local allows end users to monitor and control UPS systems connected to a host computer through a USB or serial cable. It also includes an SNMP agent that allows UPS systems to be discovered and managed by PowerAlert Network Management System or a third-party network management system. PowerAlert Network Shutdown Agent allows the host computer to monitor a designated PowerAlert Local client or SNMPWEBCARD accessory over the network. When a selected power event is detected (typically an “on battery? event), the host computer automatically hibernates or shuts down after a user-specified delay. It’s ideal for computers that have restricted system resources or cannot connect to a UPS system through a USB or serial cable. more

Soundcraft Unveils New Mid-price Digital Console – More Inputs, More Technology, and a True Analogue Feel

si3_console.jpgSoundcraft® Si3 promises to deliver more for less than any other.

Currently riding high with tours and engineers thanks to the incredible success of the Vi Series digital consoles, Soundcraft has launched a mid-market partner console in the Soundcraft Si3. This new desk is designed for live use on both touring sound systems and in fixed installations and its intuitive operation and high input and bus count makes it a perfect choice for House of Worship sound systems. Theatre users will also find the Soundcraft Si3 very applicable in their area.

What is particularly nice about the Si3 is it all comes in one chassis – console surface, all input and output connections, power supply – so it can literally drop in and replace an existing analogue desk as almost certainly no additional cabling would be required to install it. This compact footprint desk can directly handle 64 mono inputs, 4 stereo inputs and has full connectivity for all 35 output busses (24 Aux/Group, 8 Matrix and Left/Right/Centre mix buses), something you don’t find often on digital consoles at the price level of the Si3. Add to this 4 Lexicon® effects processors, 12 VCA groups, 8 Mute groups and bar graph metering for all 35 bus outputs and you begin to see what a package the Si3 is. more
