THOUSAND OAKS, California May 29, 2013 – Summer is prime time to be outside, but there’s no reason that dads should have to forsake the big game for a little sunshine.

What’s more, a SunBriteTV comes with a father-friendly price tag. The Signature Series starts at $1,495 (32”), $2,795 (46”), $3,995 (55”), and $6,995 (65”).

All SunBriteTV models withstand temperatures from -24°F to 122°F and completely resist rain, humidity, salt corrosion, dust, and insects. Anti-glare screens are specially designed to deliver bright high-definition images in any climate, day or night.

PixelFLEX Features Colored LED Curtains at InfoComm 2013

PixelFLEX, innovators of the industry’s most flexible, lightweight and durable LED video screens, will feature its new colored panels at InfoComm 2013 (Booth 5987). The colored panels, available in red, blue, white and green, are ideal for customers looking to produce unique visual effects.

The colored panels, made of DFR velvet drapery, come in a variety of resolutions, including 18mm, 20mm, 30mm, 37.5mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, offering video display solutions to meet any and all imagery needs. Just as with their original LED Curtains, videos and images can be sent to PixelFLEX’s colored screens using any computer with a DVI-D connection. Each typical screen panel is approximately 8×4, but modifications can be made easily to meet specific needs of the consumer – panels can be attached together with PixelFLEX’s proprietary quicklock system.

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED Curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display effect and can be stored in a single road case to simplify shipping. This flexibility, in combination with the product’s extraordinary light weight – PixelFLEX LED colored Curtains range from 4.5 lbs to 19.9 lbs per square meter, which is 60 to 90 percent less than most other LED video screens – provides substantial savings on transportation costs and space.

“We’ve received an enormous amount of interest from theatre production departments and musicians for our original LED video panels because of the ease of use and mobility, as well as the cost efficiencies achieved from being able to pack them in a single touring case,” said Jeremy Byrd, president and founder of PixelFLEX. “The introduction of colored panels provides even greater flexibility to our customers to meet their project requirements, while providing them with the same benefits as our original offerings.”

UDC AJA Gang Control Debuts From HRS Control

HRS Control has introduced AJA Gang Control for its popular Universal Device Controller (UDC), which allows users to take control of the full family of AJA products from the UDC software and any tablet, touch- or web-enabled device. The AJA product lines supported include FS2, FS1, the Ki Pro family and KUMO.

HRS Control developed AJA Gang Control after offering selected customers AJA Ki Pro control for live event playback. “To meet their needs we added Ki Pro control to UDC software,” says Drew Taylor at High Resolution Systems. “AJA really liked what we were doing and recommended our software to their customers. Then we began working with AJA on custom configurations within UDC, pre-configuring the system so it can be used on a daily basis or as a training tool that can be customized further.”

“Our KUMO, FS, and Ki Pro products all have Ethernet interfaces that allow complete control of the devices over a LAN, and HRS Control has added an extra layer of customizable automation software for customers that maximize and complement this ability,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “HRS Control’s new AJA Gang Control software offerings extend flexibility to our customers that want to add automation to their AJA based workflows, as well as integrating AJA devices together and within other control environments with protocol translation.”

Cost-effective UDC AJA Gang Control provides AJA product users with the features that have made UDC software so popular across the board: Macros, Web Server, Scheduling, Variables and Logic. Five custom controller interfaces are available for software or web server control; downloadable Apple iPad and Windows tablet apps are free of charge and the software works on Android through the web browser.

USB button panel controllers can be added to the software and rack mount button panels are also available.

Several features are tailored specifically to AJA Ki Pro. Start/stop records on multiple Ki Pros can be triggered with a press of a button or automated by time of day. Customers can get clip lists and playlist information from multiple Ki Pros and load clips and play multiple Ki Pros.

UDC Ki Pro File Management permits simultaneous file transfers over the network on multiple files across multiple Ki Pros. File transfers for archiving to local or network drives can be activated by a press of the button or via time of day with UDC scheduling.

“Ki Pro File Management is a cool new tool that streamlines file transfer for back up or archiving,” says Taylor. “It makes it easy to automate transfers, schedule them and have one-button control.”

AJA KUMO users also have KUMO matrix control with real time status updates and switching, a feature originally developed for other routers and now available for the AJA KUMO routers.

HRS Control has also introduced UDC AJA Gang Control Plus, which offers everything available in AJA Gang Control plus two additional features that enable broadcasters to group AJA devices from the technical director position. First, Protocol Translation translates known incoming control protocols to any outgoing AJA product. Supported protocols include PBUS, VDCP, Art-Net, DMX, MIDI, MOS and more.

Second, UDC Time Code allows users to execute control based on time code or deploy UDC software to generate time code. This additional feature utilizes network based time code or a third-party network interface box for LTC and MIDI time code interfacing.

UDC AJA Gang Control is a cost-effective software package for AJA product users, Taylor points out. “We’re offering it at a lower price than our UDC Pro software because it’s limited to control of AJA devices. But we provide the ability to upgrade to a full UDC Pro license at anytime. Users who choose to upgrade will be able to unlock the rest of the features and gain full control of any device that UDC supports.”

UDC AJA Gang Control is now shipping.

Point Source Audio Debuts SERIES8 Miniature Microphones at INFOCOMM

Point Source Audio exhibits SERIES8, a high caliber collection of miniature microphones exceptionally resilient against boom breakage and moisture; and are easy to service with novel “X-Connectors.”

Point Source Audio SERIES8 Miniature Microphones

Point Source Audio’s new SERIES8 Robust Miniature Microphones are offered in headset, earworn and lavalier styles in both omnidirectional and cardioid patterns.

Petaluma, CA – Every user knows the inherent delicate nature of miniature earworn and headset microphones that achieve their transparency can be a double edged sword. Durability is hard to attain without compromising the product’s low-profile appearance but Point Source Audio (PSA), innovator of the original and one-of-a-kind “unbreakable boom” microphone, is meeting that challenge and more. The omnidirectional models of its new SERIES8 line will feature the prized 360° degree bendable boom combined with IP 57 waterproof protection against moisture, sweat and makeup—all while achieving a discreet profile and even a performance boost to 148dB max SPL. The long awaited Cardioid models round out the new offering for users looking for an “unbreakable boom” microphone capable of precise placement with a durable, yet low-profile. All SERIES8 mics feature user-friendly interchangeable “X-Connectors” for termination with popular brands of wireless transmitter packs including Sennheiser, Shure, Lectronsonics, Audio-Technica and more. The entire line of SERIES8 omnidirectional (CO-8) and cardioid (CR-8) headset, earworn and lavalier microphones will be shown for the first time at the Point Source Audio Booth 1426 during Infocomm 2013 in Orlando, Florida.

SERIES8 begins with a foundational performance criteria of 148dB max SPL and 135dB max SPL for its respective omnidirectional (CO-8) and cardioid (CR-8) offerings, each available in three different styles: headset, earworn and lavalier. The CO-8 omni mics are the only miniature mics on the market capable of reaching 148dB max SPL. They can capture all the nuances from spoken word to the extremely high vocals of singers. Combining this performance with the enduring bendable boom design that can be twisted into any position without worry of boom breakage—and a water/sweat proof protected element, the CO-8 omni line is the singular tool that can solve miking challenges big and small.

The CR-8 cardioid benefits are clear—this pickup pattern can eliminate nearly half of the environmental sounds around the microphone to focus more directly on the speaker or singer. Both the omni and cardioid mics come standard with easy-to-use low-cost “X-Connectors” which are replaceable connectors intended for fast on-site repair, or swapping to a new wireless termination with ease. The “X-Connectors” are attached with a short threaded cable connector so it carries none of the bulkiness or weight of other solutions, and stays securely in place. “Our SERIES8 mics are high value for customers that want a low-profile mic that has it all: unbeatable max SPL, a choice of two mic patterns in three styles, long-lasting boom durability, and moisture and makeup protection,” noted James Lamb, president of Point Source Audio. “It’s the best of all worlds.”

Availability and Price
The SERIES8 omnidirectional (CO-8) and cardioid (CR-8) headset and earworn mics are shipping July. The lavalier styles will ship in October.
