Lightware’s 25G Hybrid Matrix Will Take the Matrix Switch to the Third Dimension at INFOCOMM 2012

Lightware U.S.A. will unveil its groundbreaking 25G Hybrid Matrix router at INFOCOMM 2012 in Las Vegas, NV, June 13-15. The company will have the product on hand at its booth, N669, as well as providing an in-depth overview of the system for press and attendees on June 14 at 10:00 AM in Room N207.

With its 25G Hybrid Matrix Lightware reinvents the meaning of the matrix switch. Until now systems have operated in two dimensions, with inputs and outputs. But Lightware has now added a third dimension – media layers – and set a new standard for the AV industry.

Lightware’s new system is not only a matrix, but a complete signal architecture: a cloud that supports eight media layers: video, audio, Ethernet, USB KVM, USB 2.0, IR, RS-232 and CEC channels. All layers are supported by 25G Hybrid signal management; inside the cloud all the layers are independent for switching and extending all signal layers separately.

25G Hybrid signal architecture allows video, audio and media layers to be transmitted over a single fiber or one CAT5 cable so AV professionals can build a very simple system, which still supports all eight media layers. The 25G Hybrid Matrix has 160 inputs and 160 outputs and a total throughput of 4TB per second. It offers exceptional 25 gigabits per second data rate switching for transporting next generation video signals, such as HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2, and handling all future video and audio standards, including 4K resolution and stereo 3D formats.

Each video port is equipped with a separate audio input and output connector forming a 320×320 S/P/DIF crosspoint switch. It manages stereo and multichannel audio as well as high bitrate formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Optional multichannel to stereo downmixing is available.

25G Hybrid technology is more than just a switcher, however. As a comprehensive line of digital matrix switchers, transmitters and receivers, 25G Hybrid combines switching with a powerful suite of diagnostic software tools for the digital age, delivering a superior user experience.

Jünger Audio Adds A Third Prism Sound dScope Series III To Its Equipment Arsenal

After 30 years’ experience of an extensive range of audio Test and Measurement equipment, Jünger Audio’s Technical Support engineer Bernd Fuhrmann has voted Prism Sound’s dScope Series III as the instrument he likes best.

“It is definitely the one for me,” he says. “Over the years I’ve used many other brands and I am very familiar with all their pros and cons. However, I was curious about the dScope Series III and had the opportunity to test it before buying. It took only a few minutes to make the first measurements and was extremely accurate and easy to use.”

Prism Sound’s dScope Series III includes precision analogue and highly-optimised digital outputs and inputs. Precise and automatic gain-ranging allows high resolution measurements over a massive range, from a few micro-volts to more than 150 volts RMS, and from less than 1 Hz to over 90kHz. Its interface processor uses dedicated DSP to provide a wide range of real time measurements, while its software uses the host PC for almost unlimited number crunching and analysis options such as Fast Fourier Transforms, unique ‘FFT Detectors’, swept sine and multi-tone testing. Designed to be highly programmable, the dScope Series III can be automated from a wide range of third-party software using Active X controls, or internally using VBScript.

Jünger Audio manufactures high quality audio loudness and dynamics equipment and already has two Prism Sound dScope Series III instruments – one in the R&D department and one in the quality control test lab. Although compatibility with these units was a factor, Bernd Fuhrmann was free to choose whatever brand he liked for the Technical Support department.

“Positive recommendations from my colleagues were important but in the end my choice was made on the features dScope Series III offered,” he says. “The price/performance ratio in comparison to other test equipment was a major reason for choosing it, plus I really like the automatic logging functions and the fact that it integrated seamlessly into my test environment.”

Fuhrmann is using his dScope Series III to check audio quality with sweeps, long term min/max tests, THD+N and long term bit tests.

“I have found this instrument very easy to install and I’m happy with its performance,” he adds. “I also like its small footprint and the fact that it is totally PC controlled.”

LECTROSONICS DEPLOYED AT LOUISIANA STATE EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT SYSTEM

**** Photo: Greg Byrd, IT Manager of LASERS ****

Baton Rouge, LA – May 2012… Managing the operation of a conference center’s audio system is generally not part of the average business person’s ‘technical repertoire,’ which is precisely why so many such facilities have on-site A/V technicians / operators. But for the Louisiana State Employees Retirement System, an easy-to-manage sound reinforcement setup was mandated as part of the design and installation requirements for the organization’s board room and conference facilities. After carefully evaluating the requirements of the project, Baton Rouge, LA-based Technical Services Group (TSG) deployed an ASPEN processor setup from Lectrosonics. more
