Platinum Tools® Features Cable Management Solutions at 2014 ISC West

CAMARILLO, Calif., March 7, 2014 – Platinum Tools(R) (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, is proud to announce it will feature its cable management solutions and new application guide for the security and commercial/residential AV markets at 2014 ISC West, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 2-4 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth 4045.

“Platinum Tools offers a broad range of options for the security and AV professional,” explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools product manager. “As well as our full line of J-Hooks, Bridle Rings, and hanging hardware, we now provide an application guide to match the correct accessories to help ensure installations are efficient, professional, and worry free.”

Standard Multi-Purpose and Cable Cage Polypropylene (CCP) J-Hooks are the solution for heavy duty hanging applications. They both offer traditional steel construction and stress free cable support to organize and build a distribution pathway for various cable types, and they are popular for uses above suspended ceilings, and below raised floors, as well as in the garage and shop.

“The CCP Series steel over-molded polypropylene J-Hooks are great time savers for installers,” added Phillips. “Faster cable pulls, no cable burn, and the integral latching mechanism all combine to provide the installer solutions ideal for telecom/voice, network/data, broadband, satellite, CCTV, fiber, and flexible conduit in security and commercial/home applications.”

Phillips continued, “Our Bridle Rings are the preferred choice for supporting and securing communication and other low voltage cables. They are simple, effective, and constructed of solid low carbon steel with various diameter sizes and standard thread configurations. Combined with Platinum Tools’ other hanging hardware accessories, Bridle Rings are ideal for concrete, beam flanges, C Purlins, Z Purlins, and drop wire applications.”

HARMAN’s Soundcraft Vi3000 Ushers in the Next Generation of Digital Consoles

POTTERS BAR, United Kingdom – HARMAN’s Soundcraft today announced the introduction of its incomparable Vi3000 digital live sound console, offering a host of state-of-the-art features including the groundbreaking internal DSP Soundcraft® SpiderCore, a new industrial design, 96 channels to mix, Dante compatibility and more.

“The new Vi3000 represents a massive leap forward in digital console design and functionality, while also keeping the best elements of the Vi4 and Vi6 consoles,” said Andy Brown, Vi Series Senior Product Manager, Soundcraft. “We have a totally new internal core based on the highly successful Studer Vista 1 and a completely new, more efficiently designed surface running updated operating software. Compared to other consoles in its price range, the Vi3000 offers more input channels, more busses, more faders, and a user interface like no other. We are proud to say the Vi3000 is simply unparalleled in its category.”

The Vi3000 utilizes the new internal DSP SpiderCore based on the company’s Vista 1 engine, with Soundcraft’s Vi Version 4.8 operating software, while adding a fourth 24-channel fader layer to improve access to the console’s 96 input channels. The surface operation and layout is similar to other Vi Series consoles, providing a familiar feel while offering expanded functionality. The Vi3000 features upgraded microphone preamps and 40-bit Floating Point DSP processing for superlative sound quality.

The Soundcraft Vi3000 features an all-new appearance with a more efficiently designed control surface, 36 faders, 24 mono/stereo busses and a sweeping black screen panel with four Vistonics II™ touch screen interfaces with sleek, updated 3D graphics. Because the Vi3000 has four touchscreens, it’s the only console in its class that can be used by two engineers at the same time.

“Visibility of parameters and easy access to them are the most important features a console can have,” Brown noted. “When something unexpected happens—as it always does in live sound—being able to see a lot of settings quickly is a massive advantage.”

The Soundcraft Vi3000 offers extensive rear panel connectivity. In addition to a full complement of analog and digital inputs and outputs, the console provides MIDI, USB, Ethernet, DVI out, Dante/MADI record feed outputs, redundant power supply and other connections. The Vi3000 has two expansion bays that can be fitted with MADI Stagebox cards, to connect multiple Soundcraft Stagebox input expander modules. The Vi3000 can also accommodate the new Soundcraft Realtime Rack, a hardware/software unit designed in collaboration with plug-in manufacturer Universal Audio that provides access to 74 industry-standard UAD plug-ins. The Vi3000 is the first Soundcraft console to incorporate a Dante interface as standard, for seamless digital audio networking with Dante-enabled devices.

Along with its greatly expanded functionality, the Vi3000 retains all the features that have made the Soundcraft Vi Series the consoles of choice for live sound engineers worldwide, such as FaderGlow™ illuminated faders that display different colors according to function, the ability to store and recall snapshots and cues, compatibility with Soundcraft’s ViSi app that allows remote control from an iPad, built-in Lexicon reverb/delays, dbx compression,effects and more.
