Woodland Park, NJ (June 5, 2012) – FSR, manufacturer of audio and video switching, control products, and connectivity boxes, will debut its new Top Shelf wall-mounted enclosure at InfoComm 2012. The new box, which offers an innovative approach to wall racks, targets applications where space is limited by packing up to 4RU of AV equipment in an attractive housing. Top Shelf, which will be on display at FSR’s InfoComm booth N651 in the North Hall, is ideal for classrooms, conference and meeting rooms, government applications, hospitals, hotels, museums, Houses of Worship and anywhere projectors and other AV equipment are typically used.

A wall-mounted, adjustable enclosure that installs at the ceiling, Top Shelf provides ample space to mount AC receptacles, AV interfaces and more. In fact, it features nine single gang positions, four double gang positions, and six single gang positions for IPS plates. All is enclosed in a sturdy, yet attractive locking cover that allows Wi-FI and other wireless RF signals to pass between the equipment and the room. In addition, the new box offers advanced Practical Wire Management features that ensure neat, logical cable routing. All the necessary mounting hardware and cable clamps are included to satisfy most installation requirements.

“Top Shelf is the newest addition to our wall-mounted enclosure line of products,” says Jan Sandri, president, FSR. “With its unique ability to solve challenges many classrooms, boardrooms, schools, hospitals and more face with limited space, we are thrilled to bring this new solution to this year’s InfoComm show.

Acoustics First® adds more ways to get ‘Baffled’ in large spaces


Acoustics First® has ‘amped up’ the Cloudscape® line of ceiling baffles. These acoustical baffles reduce reverberation in applications such as gymnasiums, auditoriums, performance venues, theaters and restaurants. They can be suspended from open truss and pre-engineered suspension systems or alternatively mounted direct to a roof deck or wall. In addition to the standard 4′x2′ x1.5″ PVC encapsulated ‘echo-nomical’ baffle, Acoustics First® has expanded the selection to include three alternate finishes. If you wish to upgrade the size of the standard PVC Cloudscape® Ceiling Baffle, we now have a 2″ thick option available in sizes up to 4′x10′, with some limitations. If you wish to upgrade the finish, you can choose the durable rip-stop nylon sailcloth (CSBF2S) with 9 color choices. If sailcloth doesn’t ‘float your boat’, choose the fabric encapsulated Cloudscape® Baffle. The CSBF2F is encapsulated in a sewn Guilford of Maine® FR701® fabric and will coordinate with the Sonora® ridgid acoustical wall panels. The acoustical ceiling baffles are extended even further with an offering of exterior grade fabric for outdoor applications. Overall, you now have 4 choices of baffle configurations, more sizes and 96 finish options. Additionally, all the 2″ thick options use environmentally friendly Ecose® glass fiber.

HARMAN’s Studer Vista 5 M2 Records Malaysian King’s Royal Banquet

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – During a ceremony steeped in royal tradition, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’azam Shah, 84, was recently installed as the 14th Yang di-Pertuan Agong. The event took place at the new Istana Negara (royal palace) in Kuala Lumpur and was followed by a formal banquet at the Malaysia New National Palace in Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur. This was attended by members of the Rulers, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Cabinet ministers, foreign ambassadors and senior government officials. Also present was a HARMAN Studer Vista 5 M2, supplied by Mahajak Trio, the territorial distributor, which recorded the occasion.

The program was sent to air nationwide on Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM), with a total of 32 microphone channels used throughout the night. The Vista 5 M2 console was selected for its innovative qualities, flexibility, ease of use, the precise meter bridge (displaying every status the sound engineer needed to see), user-friendliness of the Vistonics(tm) screen – and finally the fact that the console is aesthetically very attractive.

“The Vista 5 M2 enabled the sound engineers to implement fast copy-paste of all the parameters while the Vistonics interface provided immediate access to parameters by opening up settings onto the encoder, such as EQ, Dynamic, VCA and channel setting, without wasting time searching for any hidden buttons,” said Mahajak Trio’s Senior Manager Sales & Project, Lee Chin Kah.

Another key feature used to mix the event was ‘Master Contributions’, enabling the sound team to view and control all the contributions on Vistonics faders.

In addition to these powerful and unique features, Mr. Lee highlighted the instant recognition provided by the console’s use of color and icons for different control parameters. “The desk is extremely intuitive and easy to learn within a second,” he said. “This allows the user to focus on the creativity of his work.”

The cues were used to upmix the stereo transmitted signal to a 5.1 channel signal, and the professional broadcast contributed substantially to the event’s success.

Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’azam Shah had been appointed on December 13 last year to succeed Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin of Terengganu, whose 5-year term as the 13th Yang di-Pertuan Agong had ended.

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of audio and infotainment solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets – supported by 15 leading brands, including AKG(r), Harman Kardon(r), Infinity(r), JBL(r), Lexicon(r) and Mark Levinson(r).

More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems. HARMAN has a workforce of about 13,000 people across the Americas, Europe and Asia, and reported net sales of $4.3 billion for the twelve months ended March 31, 2012.
