Community Introduces Commercial Design Series at InfoComm

Community introduces the new Commercial Design Series, a comprehensive family of ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers designed to meet the needs of installations requiring high performance at a competitive price. Commercial Design models offer a choice of 4.5-inch, 6.5-inch and 8-inch driver sizes, and deliver Community’s legendary sonic quality, exceptional speech intelligibility and proven reliability. The entire Commercial Design family features uniform sound quality throughout the series, providing excellent consistency from model to model.

The Commercial Design Series was designed to complement Community’s Distributed Design family of high-performance ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers in a combined installation. For this reason, Commercial Design utilizes many of the same technologies as Distributed Design, including real compression drivers and Tru-Phase™ phase plugs for high output and low distortion. Commercial Design ceiling models also incorporate labor-saving installation innovations like Community’s exclusive Drop-Stop™ technology, while the use of compression drivers and proprietary LF transducers results in higher sensitivity and higher maximum output than competitors’ models in a similar price range.

All Commercial Design models feature Euroblock input connectors, Community’s exclusive external loop-through wiring design, weather-treated drivers, and corrosion-resistant dual-layer

powder coated grilles. Commercial Design ceiling models are ETL listed to comply with UL1480, UL2043 and CSA60065, and the pendant model conforms to UL1480 as well. Commercial Design surface mount models have passed compliance testing for MIL-STD-810G and include a low profile multi-angle pan-tilt mounting bracket for precise aiming over a broad pan-tilt range. All Commercial Design models can be painted to match room décor and are equipped with a built-in autoformer for selectable 8 ohm or 70V/100V operation.

The new Commercial Design Series from Community provides an affordable solution to unobtrusively provide even coverage and great sound quality from zone to zone throughout an entire venue.

Vaddio Launches IP Video Streaming Support for ClearVIEW HD-USB Cameras

Vaddio, the global leader in robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, announces a major software update to the ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ camera. In addition to the current USB streaming, version 2.0 allows for IP HD video streaming and remote PTZ camera control through the Ethernet network interface. Integrators now have the design flexibility to choose between USB or Network streaming – all in one device.

Streaming Protocols supported are Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Encoding for video will be H.264 (Main Profile) and the audio encoding will be AAC. Streaming adaptive network bandwidth allocation is supported with Adaptive Bitrate technology by detecting a user’s bandwidth and CPU capacity in real time and adjusting the quality of a video stream accordingly. This results in a smoother more life-like motion streaming experience. Supported resolutions include both SD and HD high definition resolutions up to 1080p.

“We have been asked by our integrators for a number of years to build IP video streaming into our camera systems,” explained CEO of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. “We also knew that if we were to give them streaming, we would also have to give them remote IP PTZ camera control as well. Now they can control the camera from wherever they are watching the stream. This latest free software update to the ClearVIEW USB PTZ camera does all this and more.”

For more information on the ClearVIEW HD-USB Camera Version 2.0.0 upgrade please visit the Vaddio website at www.vaddio.com

‘Empower Your Entrepreneurial Spirit’ Forum to Feature New ‘Enstitute’ Session and ‘Merits of Mentoring’ Panel

LOS ANGELES — June 3, 2013 — Women in Consumer Electronics (CE) today announced the full agenda for “Empower Your Entrepreneurial Spirit,” the second annual Women in CE Career Enhancement Forum, which will take place June 25 at the start of CE Week. The Forum returns to the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City and will deliver a full day of sessions, topics, workshops, and keynote speakers that relate to career enhancement for all corporate, small business, and entrepreneurial women pursuing a career in consumer electronics. The agenda now features a new “Enstitute” session and adds “The Merits of Mentoring” panel.

Enstitute, a nonprofit, apprenticeship-based educational experience that turns startups and small businesses into classrooms, will be presented by its co-founder Shaila Ittycheria. In the session, Ittycheria will explore this new, revolutionary learn-by-doing education model that results in jobs. She will discuss how the failures she witnessed firsthand as a hiring manager inspired the ideas behind Enstitute, the significant development its program participants have demonstrated, and the overall implications of what it means for the career ecosystem.

The Women in CE mentoring program is one of the organization’s greatest benefits. As such, a power panel on mentoring has been assembled to reinforce the organization’s mission and the importance of mentorship for professional development. Deena Ghazaria, vice president of sales and strategy for Monster Inc., will moderate the panel. Joining Ghazaria as panelists will be Jeannette Howe, executive director of Specialty Electronics Nationwide; Katy Papadopoulos, director of all things creative for SheLuvsTech; Petro Shimonishi, global business team leader, headphones, at D&M Holdings Inc.; and Andrea Smith, an award-winning news and technology journalist.

“We are very excited to add Shaila and our distinguished group of mentoring panelists to the lineup for this year’s Career Enhancement Forum. Their contributions will not only strengthen our message of entrepreneurship, but will also stress the importance of mentorship in fueling success,” said Carol Campbell, founder of Women in CE. “Thanks to Enstitute and the mentoring panel, together with our other featured workshops and distinguished speakers, our Forum is shaping up to be a truly monumental event.”

The Forum’s opening keynote speaker is Kay Koplovitz, founder of USA Networks and former chair to President Bill Clinton’s bipartisan National Women’s Business Council. Koplovitz is also the co-creator of Springboard Enterprises, an organization that selects, trains, and presents women-led companies to raise venture capital.

As part of the program’s featured workshops, Springboard Enterprises co-founder Amy Millman will moderate the Dolphin Tank”, a supportive business-pitch platform for exchanging feedback and ideas. Panelists will be Angela Lee, founder of 37 Angels Investment Network; Sandra Kresch, president of PSD International; Debra Filtzer, director of small business marketing at American Express Merchant Services; and Sandra Benedetto, director of product management at THX Ltd.

Returning to lead a featured workshop is Sam Horn, ideapreneur and author of “POP! Create the Perfect Pitch, Title and Tagline for Anything.” She will present “OWN IT! How to Give and Get the Respect You Deserve,” which will address tangible systems and approaches that can help people communicate with confidence to increase influence, authority, and results.

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and best-selling author of “Knowing Your Value,” will deliver the Forum’s closing keynote remarks. Brzezinski will discuss concepts from her book, which addresses perceptions of value and how successful women today have achieved their deserved recognition and financial worth in the workplace.

The one-day “Empower Your Entrepreneurial Spirit” Career Enhancement Forum will start at 10 a.m. with an opening networking breakfast. The event wraps up with a book signing by Brzezinski and a closing networking reception starting at 5:15 p.m.

Hosted by Women in CE, an industry organization that promotes the advancement of women in the consumer electronics industry, the Forum is open to all professional women working in all segments of the CE industry, including manufacturers, major retailers, specialty retailers, suppliers, integrators, distributors, manufacturers’ representatives, buying groups, and consultants.

TV One Introduces Breakthrough CORIOmaster mini The industry’s first compact all-in-one videowall processor

ERLANGER, KY, June 3, 2013— TV One (www.tvone.com), a leading designer and manufacturer of cutting-edge video and multimedia processing equipment introduces the CORIOmaster mini, the industry’s first compact all-in-one videowall processor.

The new CORIOmaster mini fits up to 12 High Density Universal DVI or HDBaseT ports within a breakthrough 1 RU frame. This allows users to design full-scale 3×3 video walls while eliminating a rack’s worth of discrete video components. The efficient CORIOmaster mini saves up to 10X the power required to drive complex video walls.

 

The industry’s first compact all-in-one videowall processor

“The radical CORIOmaster mini design allows a 1RU system to perform the full range of demanding videowall processing tasks,” said Sean Burke, President, Nortek Technology Solutions Group. “Like its big brother, the mini achieves stunning performance through the patented TV One Parallel Processing architecture.”

CORIO Parallel Video Processing Architecture tightly joins patented CORIO® video engines with up to 10 independent video processors. This radical design supports up to 26 Billion video matrix calculations per second. To ensure optimal parallel bandwidth, video transfers between the CORIO video layer(s) and video I/O processors occur at an industry-leading 4 Gigabits per second per I/O channel.

This design allows a single all-in-one system to perform the range of video tasks simultaneously, including: real-time video rotations, multi projector edge blending, image warping, transitions, still image store and logo keying. This combination plus the mini’s software upgradeability ensures that customers maximize the long-term value of their video wall investment.

The CORIOmaster mini delivers Real Time Video Quality with a less than two frame signal delay from input to output regardless of video resolution and frame rates. Only CORIO technology can massively parallelize video tasks to deliver the highest quality video possible at ultra-low latency.

Complementing the processing skills of the mini is an unparalleled I/O versatility. Universal DVI I/O modules support the full range of analog and digital formats as well as universal conversion to virtually any HD or PC resolution. The CORIOmaster mini design further supports HDBaseT, 3G/HD/SD-SDI and future Cross-Fade and 4K output modules. This versatility gives users unmatched flexibility to configure the mini to meet every video wall need.

The CORIOmaster mini base unit has a Manufacturer’s suggested Retail Price of $10,995. Come see the NEW CORIOmaster mini on demonstration and display at the TV One booth # 3931.
