BenQ Releases New Line of Professional Installation Projectors

P Series Brings High Brightness, Six Optional Lenses, and Interchangeable Color Wheels for Complete Installation Flexibility

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Jan. 28, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the introduction of its new P Series line of professional installation projectors. Designed to bring top performance to commercial applications in education, retail, and corporate environments, the company’s new projector family provides XGA and WXGA resolutions, up to 6,500 lumens of brightness, and flexible setup options for switchable color wheels and optional lenses — all at a competitive price point.

“Our new line of P Series projectors was engineered to provide the marketplace with a more affordable package for producing professional-grade projection within a wide range of settings,” said Kristin Kennedy, Associate Vice President, Sales at BenQ America Corp. “Built with high-brightness capabilities, easy control options, and the ability to customize the projector’s components to satisfy specific applications, our P Series is BenQ’s latest value-centric innovation made to bridge the needs of customers with a cost-effective solution coupled with powerful features.”

Consisting of the PX9600 and PW9500, the P Series’ respective XGA and WXGA models deliver high brightness of 6,500 and 5,700 lumens as well as crisp 2800:1 contrast ratios — enabling Colorific(TM) picture-perfect clarity in any lighting scenario or installation environment for accurate, crisp, and long-lasting color reproduction. Equipped with HQV image processing, the technology allows the devices to scale outputs, enabling the projectors to cast full resolutions that enhance both image details and overall picture quality. The feature also reduces the mosquito effect and blocks the random noise often associated with compressed digital videos formats.

Shipped with both four-segment and six-segment color wheels, the projectors allow users to interchange the components based on specific installation requirements such as the need for increased brightness or more striking image quality. To further installation flexibility, the P Series features seven interchangeable lenses ranging from 3.4M short-throw optics to long zoom 16.41  24.71M capabilities in order to suit any projection distance. Now with motorized horizontal and vertical lens shift, and a powered 1.6 zoom ratio, the projectors enable easy centralized remote management for simpler setup versatility in any classroom, lecture hall, boardroom, or multipurpose auditorium.

Total flexibility is also facilitated by the P Series’ 360-degree projection capabilities — bringing impressive multiscreen functionality to applications such as retail floors, galleries, and theater applications. With LAN control, the PX9600 and PW9500 enable control and monitoring over a single LAN cable, allowing IT managers to remotely manage and maintain devices directly from workstations. Both devices also feature PJLink compatibility and provide DVI and 5BNC connectivity points.

Available now, BenQ’s PX9600 and PW9500 P Series projectors each retail for $3,999. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.

FiberPlex MADI SFP Passes Optical to Avid During NFL Pro Bowl Sunday

It was a double pass for optical fiber at Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl game at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, where copper cabling took a beating due to excessive moisture buildup from the rain.

“The issue with copper wasn’t noise for a change, it was water,” said Jeff Kang with Custom Audio, Kaneohe, Hawaii, which has been providing sound reinforcement for Pro Bowl for over 10 years. Fortunately, this year, Kang had contacted FiberPlex Technologies about a MADI-to-optic conversion box for his Avid Profile live audio console in order to run optical fiber across the stadium, and thereby bypass the problems associated with a copper run.

The FiberPlex FOI-6010 conversion box with MADI SFP/SFP+ (small form-factor pluggable module) on one end and multimode fiber SFP/SFP+ on the other makes it possible to run a fiber snake between the Avid FOH rack and a main stage rack about 650 feet away, something Kang wishes he had been able to do with a secondary stage rack 350 feet up field. The secondary stage rack connected through copper cabling was glitchy due to a steady drizzle of rain the day of the game.

“The problem was that it (copper snake) would constantly switch between primary and backup because of the condensation,” he said, adding that the optical run was unaffected by weather or noise – which was good, because he didn’t have a backup system. “That’s how much trust I put in these fiber systems,” commented Kang, who has two FiberPlex LightViper audio snakes that he uses for a variety of venues, including use as a 330-foot optical snake during the Pro Bowl game.

For Pro Bowl 2014, FiberPlex’s MADI SFP/SFP+ easily handled Avid’s modified MADI protocol for bidirectional 48×48 digital audio channels into multimode optical fiber supporting separate wireless mics, multitrack recordings, live band, plus a number of announcers and other sources that add to the mix of a typical NFL game. The remaining channels of the 64×64 bidirectional MADI capability are used for controlling mic preamps, metering, and for reading data on the Avid stage rack down field. (This is part of Avid’s modified use of the MADI protocol.)

Custom Audio is one of a growing number of sound reinforcement firms now using optical snakes for live mixing and other applications that require transporting media error-free and transparently over long distances. Setup requires only a few strands of fiber for the copper equivalent of a 40-pair, 500-pound snake, which is why Custom Audio’s crew was able to dismantle the system in record time after the Pro Bowl game. “My crew looked at me and said, ‘We got out of here two hours faster than we normally do,’” commented Kang.

FiberPlex makes fiber optic products and systems for government agencies as well as for houses of worship, corporate facilities, broadcast applications, and K-12 and higher education.

Triad Speakers, Inc. Ships its Thinnest Soundbar Yet, the Nano OnWall LCR 3.0

Fully-damped and braced extruded aluminum enclosure measures 1.6-inches deep by 3.25 inches high and is available in custom widths and paint finishes. Add to the mix premium components and passionate sound engineering and the Nano OnWall LCR 3.0 is the best performer in its class today

Portland, OR – January 28, 2014 – Triad Speakers, Inc. is now shipping its Nano OnWall LCR 3.0, a
3-channels-in-1 passive loudspeaker system (soundbar) for today’s ultra-slim TVs. The company’s thinnest soundbar to date, Nano measures 1.6-inches deep (including grille) by 3.25 inches high and is available in both custom widths and paint finishes. MSRP begins at $1,200. Standard accessories include Triad’s EZ Mount Bracket and brackets to mount directly to the TV.

Triad has been in business for more than 30 years and is well-established as a leading international brand of loudspeaker solutions in the custom residential channel. The brand offers dealers a robust line of in-room, on-wall, in-wall and in-ceiling solutions, the majority of which is custom-manufactured in the USA.

Triad’s soundbar line consists of 10 models at varying levels of performance and sizes to complement most every TV available today. According to Triad Speakers Marketing Manager Paul Teixeira, it was the lackluster sound of today’s ultra-slim TVs that prompted the company to engineer a speaker that could maintain the sleek look of the TVs, yet provide robust performance.

Teixeira notes, “While there are other manufacturers that market thin soundbars, their sound has typically taken a backseat to size. The Nano LCR 3.0 incorporates 6 specially-designed Scan-Speak drivers and 3 soft dome SB tweeters in a fully-damped and braced aluminum enclosure, all of which was a major challenge from such a compact enclosure. We’re very proud of how it sounds and looks, and believe it’s the best performer in its class today.”

The Nano LCR 3.0 represents the first of a new series of ultra-compact soundbars from Triad that utilizes this new design process using extruded aluminum. The speaker is manufactured to order in Triad’s modern factory in Portland, Oregon. In addition to custom paint-matching, the company offer optional (at extra cost) custom-sizing in widths to match the length of the video display

Specifications
Dimensions (inches): 44 (w) x 3-1/4 (h) x 1.6 (d)
Frequency Range: 190Hz – 20kHz (+/-3dB)
Recommended Amp Power: 75 – 125 watts

RTI Now Shipping All New CX7 Countertop User Interface

Designed for Mounting on a Countertop or Under a Cabinet, Versatile Solution Delivers Reliable Control for Commercial and Residential Applications

SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Jan. 28, 2014 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has announced that it is now shipping the exciting new CX7, a wired user interface for reliable “always on” control over A/V, environmental, and security systems in any setting, from the kitchen to the boardroom.

Primarily designed to be used with RTI control systems for powerful two-way control of electronics, it is the flexible installation options the CX7 has to offer that really sets it apart. For example, analog audio and video inputs — composite, S-video, and component — allow users to view and listen to sources such as satellite TV on its dazzling 7-inch, 800×480 WVGA LCD and integrated stereo speakers. The unit also features wired 10/100 Base-T and wireless Ethernet, which provide two-way control and feedback, access to Web pages, video from network security cameras, and convenient programming. In addition, a built-in camera and microphone will offer intercom capabilities in the future. For the ultimate in convenience, proximity and light sensors automatically bring the unit to life when it’s approached by an end user.

For ease of installation, the CX7′s display can be lifted straight up, laid nearly flat, tilted at any level in-between, or the unit can even be inverted and mounted under a cabinet. The CX7 features multiple power source options, such as the included power supply and Power over Ethernet (PoE). Built-in high-output IR provides direct control of devices without the need for a separate control processor.

“With its numerous options for mounting, power, communications, and AV inputs, the CX7 is ideal for highly reliable ‘always on’ control in commercial environments such as boardrooms and lecture halls,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “At the same time, the controller is right at home under a kitchen cabinet or in home theaters.”

Now, all the greatest sporting events can be enjoyed outdoors all year — without the hassle and backache of moving, mounting, setting up and then removing an indoor TV for every event!

As outdoor entertaining on patios, decks, boats and pool areas looks to become a major trend of 2014 — from the sunbelt right up to the Canadian border — purpose-built permanently-installed outdoor technologies including pizza ovens, outdoor kitchens, smokers, heaters, sound systems and televisions are enabling fans to enjoy their sport, entertain friends and family and share their gardens, balconies and decks.

“Outdoor entertaining — whether it’s hosting a party or watching a game — is a very different, fun dynamic that is especially conducive to sports,” said Tom Dixon, Vice President of Marketing, SunBriteTV. “The freedom of movement and camaraderie/social interaction can be phenomenal — almost tribal! That’s important when you’re rooting for your team and especially when you’re rooting for your country!”

When used outdoors, outdoor televisions outperform indoor televisions on a host of important variables. All 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 outdoor climate, any time of day or night.

“Entertaining is all about enjoying the moment, not setting up for the moment!” Dixon continued. “If you have to wheel out your TV, mount it, cable the connection and tear down after the event, then you’ll be less likely to take the party outside. What’s more, if the television is not optimized for outdoor use, brightness, moisture and insects will impact the TV’s safety and performance! It’d probably be wiser to limit the risk of injury to trained athletes on screen!”
