Technomad DragonFly Portable Audio System Debuts in Europe

Compact, integrated Micro PA system is first weatherproof system of its kind

BOSTON, December 7, 2011Technomad brings DragonFly, the world’s first completely weatherproof, all-in-one, self-casing portable PA system for the commercial pro audio market to ISE2012 (January 31-February 2, RAI Exhibition Center, Hall 3, Booth #3D144), marking its international debut.

The DragonFly, adapted from Technomad’s rugged military technology, is ideal for mobile pro audio and staging events that require outstanding audio quality, lightweight portability, quick setup, ease of operation and durable construction for outdoor events. The weatherproof design fully protects system components from moisture, dirt, shock and other elements in outdoor environments, supporting everything from ceremonies and parades to sporting events and concerts.

The inclusion of green, rechargeable and long-lasting NiHM battery power, along with a potent audio output, supports mobile audio free of extension cords for crowds of approximately 2,150 in size. NiMH battery technology, which uses nickel-metal hydride materials, is far more energy-efficient than lead-based batteries used in many portable audio systems today.

The DragonFly offers a uniquely small form factor for a fully functioning PA unit, sized at 14-1/2”x8-1/4”x14” and weighing 28 pounds. It contains two Technomad loudspeakers (expandable to four) and a 200-watt amplifier, and is one of the only portable PA systems to offer an integrated four-input mixer with individual controls. Collectively, the professional audio features provide a powerful output with broad dispersion, projecting intelligible speech and high-quality musical reproduction over long distances and wide areas.

“The DragonFly provides high-quality portable sound without worries by eliminating any risk of equipment loss due to quickly developing weather changes at outdoor events,” said Rodger von Kries, vice president of Technomad. “The DragonFly is shockingly loud considering its small form factor, and its high-fidelity performance is an ideal upgrade from low-fidelity horn systems. Compact and flexible with advanced battery technology, it advances what is possible in portable PA while delivering Technomad’s military-grade reliability and weatherproof construction.”

Other standard features include 16+ user-selectable channels for UHF applications, an integrated wireless microphone and an expansion bay to support an additional mic and a CD player. Network interfaces for streaming audio to other PA systems or receiving audio over a network via a wireless connection are included. Users can also add a Technomad Schedulon mp3 playback and recording system for instant, manual playback of user-loaded audio; or automatic playback of files (single-, multiple- or repeated-play) through down-to-the-second scheduling.

The convergence of neo-driver, amplification and NiMH battery technology supports the compact, lightweight and high-powered portable PA design. The internal NiHM battery comes with a charger for powering up in the field, and the unit operates on 120-240VAC and 12-24VDC power — making the DragonFly also useful as a fixed indoor or outdoor PA system, temporary or permanent.
