MOZAEX RELEASES BLUWAVS 7.1 HD AUDIO HEADPHONES; WORLD’S FIRST TO SUPPORT BLU-RAY DISCRETE 7.1 HD AUDIO

Salt Lake City – Sept. 12, 2012 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room Blu-ray entertainment servers and peripherals, launched BluWavs™, a revolutionary, patent pending series of 7.1 HD Audio headphones, with great success during last week’s 2012 CEDIA Expo, held in Indianapolis from Sept. 6 – 8 at the Indiana Convention Center, booth 5655.

BluWavs are the world’s first Blu-ray 7.1 Discrete HD Audio headphones

“Mozaex has once again set a new standard in luxury home entertainment with the release of the first headphones to support Blu-ray 7.1 discrete HD Audio” said Mozaex CEO Douglas Kihm. “BluWavs are also the first headphones to include a BluWav ‘Blender’ Audio Console which allows users to fine-tune the volume and EQ of ten discrete speakers to meet their personal surround sound listening preferences.”

The BluWav Blender includes new technology called PLUSH (Personally Leveled Ultimate Surround Headphones). PLUSH allows the listener to instantly select their own personal audio profile for the richest, most enveloping surround sound experience. For example, the volume levels of the 10 discrete speakers and the EQ levels of the front speakers can be adjusted to create a warmer, deeper bass sound, or adjust the center and rear levels for louder movie dialogue and greater spatial effects.

BluWavs combine highest quality music headphones with 7.1 HD Audio and personalization

“Over the past two years, we worked with industry experts to design headphones that combine the absolute best sounding music with the clearest, most immersive 7.1 HD Audio for watching movies,” added Kihm.

“This product is actually a life-long goal of mine, which began about 40 years ago when I built my first pair of stereo headphones and more recently when I began to design a solution for my own hearing loss. I am thrilled to see from the initial feedback that BluWavs not only delivers HD surround sound audio that is many times the quality of stereo headphones, but that others like me appreciate being able to finally watch a movie without sub-titles and without disturbing other people.”

BluWavs patent pending technology addresses a unique niche in a multi-billion dollar market

While the market for stereo music and gaming headphones continues to experience high growth with over $2 billion in total headphone sales in the USA alone, little attention has been paid to delivering a product that offers the best audio quality for both stereo and surround sound media, such as Blu-ray.

In spite of a general slowdown in consumer electronics, worldwide sales for headphones continue to experience rapid growth. As reported on February 6 2012 by Gfk at the BADA (British Audio-Visual Dealers Association), UK sales of headphones are up 26.4 percent in value with a total UK headphone market “worth more than £163m which is equal to the entire market for hi-fi and home cinema sectors which has fallen to a 20-year low of £167m”.

Continued from the BADA report, “UK consumers bought more than 10 million pairs of headphones in 2011 – almost two million more sets than we did in 2010. The price we’re paying is also increasing, with the UK headphone market now worth £163,217,000.”

Mozaex believes that besides the huge growth in the mobile market consumers are paying a higher price for higher quality. BluWavs patent pending technology uniquely addresses the un-served surround sector of this fast growing market. Only BluWavs delivers HDMI 7.1 discrete HD Audio. Other surround sound headphones only support lower quality SD Audio and are typically used on USB or SPDIF computer game consoles or offer “virtual audio technology” that attempts to create virtual 5.1 SD Audio using conventional stereo headphones.

BluWavs meets dealer needs for a truly unique, value-added, non-retail store product

Kihm continued, “BluWavs offers our network of custom home electronic dealers an opportunity to expand their sales with a truly unique, value-added product that their clients won’t find at a consumer retail store. BluWavs are the perfect add-on peripheral to any mid to high-end home theater project.”

BluWavs meets MDU client needs for an unobtrusive way to enjoy HD quality entertainment

BluWavs offers a great opportunity to dealers to meet the growing needs of millions of people who live in condominiums and other Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs) who are constrained from loudly playing their movies and music. For example, in Europe, 50 percent of people live in MDUs. The U.S. is quickly catching up with more than a third of all U.S. residents living in approximately five million MDU buildings that range from apartments to high rise condominiums.

BluWavs are first to deliver DTS HD Master, Dolby TrueHD and LPCM HD quality audio

Blu-ray Disc® revolutionized home theater with its 1080p video and 7.1 HD quality audio formats. BluWavs HD Audio delivers bit rates up to 27 Mbps (or 18 times the quality of standard definition formats). Until now dealers were unable to offer their clients exceptional 7.1 HD Audio quality headphones.
BluWavs patent pending technology universally supports all popular HD Audio formats and interfaces, including DTS® HD Master and Dolby® TrueHD HD Audio plus HDMI and Multi-Channel pre-amp outputs.

BluWavs includes vibration subwoofer to deliver music and bass thumping scenes you can feel

Its patent pending technology includes the first vibration subwoofer speaker driver that has its own dedicated bass booster amplifier and crossover which can be adjusted to deliver bass sounds the listener can literally feel. BluWavs are designed to dramatically enhance the user experience when playing movies, music, games and online surround sound media such as NetFlix and iTunes.

BluWavs includes a single Headset and Blender Console. The Blender Console is available at the same price in either a Shelf enclosure or rack mountable. Additional Headsets are sold separately.

The A Series (Analog) A10 and AE10 (includes a 15 band EQ) are recommended for use with receivers that have pre-amp analog outputs and controllable speakers. The D Series (Digital) is recommended for projects that do not have a pre-amp out receiver. The D10 allows you to add our own dedicated BluWavs pre-amp receiver while the DR10 includes a receiver with remote controllable volume and EQ.

All BluWavs support LPCM, DTS® HD Master and Dolby® TrueHD HD Audio via multi-channel pre-amp analog inputs while the D Series supports both pre-amp analog and HDMI inputs.

All models support 10 speakers per Headset and supports one or two Headsets when using the analog pre-amp input or by adding an optional Headset Amp.

BASSMAXX Launches CCM112 YesMon Powered Monitor

AUSTIN, Texas, August 14, 2012 — BASSMAXX (www.bassmaxx.com), an industry leader in high-output subwoofers and audiophile-quality professional loudspeakers, is proud to announce the launch of the bi-amped CCM112 YesMon Powered Monitor. The CCM112 is scheduled to ship in the 4th quarter of 2012 with an MSRP of $2,570.00

“Big things can definitely come in small packages,” said David Lee, president and designer at BASSMAXX. “We put many ‘big’ elements into this very small monitor, so the size of the CCM simply does not prepare you for its capabilities and output. We’ve had major artists presented with them for use as a stage monitor who took a look at them with disdain, saying ‘That’s not going to be big enough, mate’, and then look astonished when we turned them on! It definitely is a big surprise when you compare size to volume.

Lee explained that the biggest news about the compact CCM112 may be the development of tailored anti-feedback presets for specific major-brand microphones. “When the preset that matches your specific microphone is loaded, the monitor is automatically EQ’d for maximum gain before feedback, meaning that the monitor/mic combination is practically ‘rung out’ for you, leaving little or no tuning required by the user for maximum sound and minimum hassles,” continued Lee. “This is a great time-saver for the professional and a great problem solver for the amateur. New microphone presets will be made available for download from www.bassmaxx.com as they come to market and/or by customer special request. Up to 60 presets can be stored on the DSP through a USB or Ethernet interface and, once loaded, can be recalled though the on-board display controller without a computer hook-up.”

Physically, the CCM112 is an extremely compact 12-inch monitor that incorporates a 1500W Powersoft class D amplifier coupled to a high power handling neodymium woofer and a co-axially mounted 1.4-inch exit compression driver. The co-axial point source provides more consistent off-axis response and superior feedback rejection. Performance is enhanced by a 96kHz networkable DSP, unique anti-feedback DSP programming with up to 60 presets on board and unlimited presets available online.

The CCM112 and its DSP presets are designed to deliver maximum gain before feedback, maximum output level, maximum utility, and maximum reliability. The minimums were focused on size and weight. The cabinet is made of Baltic Birch, measures 14in. x 15in. x 12in. and weighs 30.6 lbs. It has four deployment angles plus a cast metal pole-mount. Its small size and lightweight Neodymium magnet structure allows for easy transport and the 1500W class D amp and on-board DSP make setup a snap. Power in, signal in, ready to begin.

“A great monitor is one that gives you headroom and not headaches,” Lee concluded. “The CCM112 was made for anyone who wants to be able to carry an entire monitor rig in each hand without breaking a sweat, who would rather take their own monitors on the road than rely on whatever happens to be at the gig, who works in venues with small stages, has to supply an entire show’s lights and sound out of one truck, or who needs a really powerful speaker in a tiny little box. Or, all of the above. Although we class them as monitors, they can power an entire small show with one on each side and a BASSMAXX sub below.”

Additional specifications include:
• Frequency response (±3 dB): 80-18,000Hz
• Maximum sustained output: 123 dB
• Short-term peak output: 126dB
• Enclosure type: multi-angle acoustic suspension wedge
• Dimensions (H x W x D): 14in. x 15in. x 12in.
• Net weight: 30.6 lbs.
• Shipping weight: 35 lbs.
• Exterior finish: high-pressure polyurethane
• Grill: custom-cut diffraction pattern foam-backed 1/8in. aluminum
• Voltage operating range: 95-250V, auto-switching
• Current draw: 95-125V: 3.6A@1/8 power, 195-250V: 2.2A@1/8 power
• DSP: comprehensive bi-amped processing, custom anti-feedback presets

BASSMAXX products are designed to deliver high fidelity and high-output, and also to be low maintenance and incredibly rugged. The electronics and circuitry are covered by the BASSMAXX 2-year ‘Sound Defense’ warranty with a 6-year limited warranty on the cabinet.

For more information on BASSMAXX products and services, please call 713-397-4466, or visit www.BASSMAXX.com.

Platinum Tools® Launches EZ-RJ45® Cat5e/6 Shielded Connectors w/Internal or External Ground

CAMARILLO, Calif., August 10, 2012 – Platinum Tools (www.platinumtools.com), the leader in solutions for the preparation, installation and hand termination of wire and cable, announces the launch of the recently updated EZ-RJ45 shielded Cat5e/6 connectors with internal or external ground. The EZ-RJ45 shielded connectors are now shipping.

“Made in the USA and designed to work on both Cat5e and Cat6 cables, solid or stranded, our upgraded EZ-RJ45 connectors combine the performance exclusive to its predecessor’s design, but now with the advantages inherent to shielded products for an unparalleled solution,” said Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. “By shielding the EZ-RJ45, additional electrical isolation means the cables are even less susceptible to electrical interference caused by nearby equipment or wires and, in response, are less likely to cause interference themselves. Additionally, in applications where NEXT, FEXT, and AXT are an issue, using shielded products can be the solution.”

By utilizing the new EZ-RJ45, simplify twisted pair terminations by allowing the wires to be inserted through the connector and out the front, to easily verify the proper wiring order. Pulling the connector down over the cable jacket and seating it tightly in the rear of the connector optimizes electrical performance of the termination. Reducing the distance between the wire twists and contacts also improves performance. Terminate with the patented Platinum Tools EZ-RJ45 Crimp Tools…crimp and trim in one cycle.

Additional features of the EZ-RJ45 shielded Cat5e/6 connectors include:
• Made in the USA
• through holes allow wire pairs to be inserted through front of connector for faster terminations
• EZ to verify wire sequence, reduces scrap
• more reliable and higher performance
• works with solid or stranded wire; separate connectors not required, reducing inventory and confusion
• simple one-piece design; bars or liners not required
• use in Category 3, 5, 5E or 6 compliant data networks
• UL rated, FCC & RoHS compliant
• 50 micro inch gold plated
• internal ground: maximum cable OD: 0.260in.; maximum conductor OD: 0.041in.
• external ground: maximum cable OD: 0.280+in.; maximum conductor OD: 0.041in.

The EZ-RJPRO HD modular crimp tool has been designed to terminate all EZ-RJ45 (Cat3, 5, 5e, and 6) and EZ-RJ11 (4 and 6 contact) plugs and can also be used to terminate most regular RJ45 and RJ12/11 plugs. It provides a ratcheted, high leverage, ultra stable platform for consistent, repeatable terminations. This heavy duty tool is the perfect solution when working with high performance, larger OD cables that are tougher to terminate due to larger wire gauges, thicker, harder insulation on the conductors and pair separating splines. Not only will connectivity obstacles be overcome, but the installer can be assured that every termination will meet FCC specifications.

The patented, rugged PRO HD tool, which will reliably crimp and trim wires at the same time, has an all steel frame, PVC handles, and a rust resistant, black oxide finish to stand up to the rigors of field installations.

This heavy duty ratchet style tool includes integral cable cutter/jacket strippers for round (Cat 3-6) and flat (silver satin) cable, providing optimal pressure to all contacts for a precise crimp while the vertical action assures all contacts are terminated to the proper depth.

“We will continue to innovate and improve our unique EZ-RJ45 connectors and tools,” added Sachs. “Products designed to increase an installer’s efficiency have been the key to our success and they will continue to dominate our product line in the future.”

Please contact Platinum Tools for pricing.

For more information on Platinum Tools and its complete product line, please visit www.platinumtools.com, call (800) 749-5783, or email info@platinumtools.com.

About Platinum Tools
Platinum Tools, founded in 1997, was created based upon two very simple objectives. First, develop the absolute best possible solutions for the preparation, installation, and hand termination of wire and cable. Second, implement an operational infrastructure that can deliver these products in an efficient, timely, and high quality manner.

All of our products must absolutely satisfy three critical benchmark criteria…utility of function; quality of function; and economic value. Our people are our company. They, too, must be focused on and work to satisfy three critical benchmark criteria…customer satisfaction; product knowledge and expertise; and willingness to learn and adapt.

MOZAEX RELEASES BLUWAVS 7.1 HD AUDIO HEADPHONES; WORLD’S FIRST TO SUPPORT BLU-RAY HDMI 7.1 HD AUDIO

Salt Lake City – August 9, 2012 – Mozaex™, the premiere manufacturer of multi-room Blu-ray entertainment servers and peripherals, announced today it has launched BluWavs™, a revolutionary, patent pending series of 7.1 HD Audio headphones.

Video Mount Products Launches Low-Profile DVR-LB3 DVR Lockbox at ASIS 2012

Shipping August 1, the DVR-LB3 is Fan Cooled within a Low-Profile Chassis, and has Been Designed Specifically for Today’s Smaller and More Compact DVRs and Installations Restricted to Limited Space Requirements

STEVENSVILLE, Md., July 30, 2012 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the security, commercial, CI, residential, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce the launch of the new DVR-LB3 DVR Lockbox during ASIS 2012, held in Philadelphia from September 10-12 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, booth 354. Shipping August 1, the low-profile DVR-LB3 has an MSRP of $236.95.

“The DVR-LB3 is the next in our series of DVR lockboxes, following our popular DVR-LB1 and DVR-LB2 lockboxes,” explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “The DVR-LB3 features all the security benefits of the others in the series, but its low-profile makes it perfect for today’s smaller DVRs and for installations restricted to limited space requirements.”

Due to the smaller, more compact chassis where heat issues may arise, VMP has included a single fan, as well as a mounting location for a second fan should additional thermal management be required. Multiple vents with vent blockers for active or passive thermal management have also been incorporated.

Additional features of the VMP DVR-LB23 lockbox include:
• Interior dimensions: 17.2in W x 21in D x 5in H
• Rack mountable on two or four posts with a three RU overall height
• Interlocking lift-off lid
• Key-locked hinged front door
• Black static resistant powder coat finish

According to Fulmer, high-end electronics have become a staple in today’s security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen without compromising remote control accessibility.

“Our DVR-LB3 is the next generation DVR lockbox, built upon the principle of creating peace of mind for those who require DVRs be installed in settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism, but at the same time allowing for the flexibility of a smaller housing solution,” Fulmer concluded.

For more information, please visit www.videomount.com or call (410) 643-6390 or toll free 877-281-2169. If you need help choosing the right mount for your application, try the Video Mount Finder at www.chooseamount.com.

Video Mount Products Launches Low-Profile DVR-LB3 DVR Lockbox

Shipping August 1, the DVR-LB3 is Fan Cooled within a Low-Profile Chassis, and has Been Designed Specifically for Today’s Smaller and More Compact DVRs and Installations Restricted to Limited Space Requirements

STEVENSVILLE, Md., July 24, 2012 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the security, commercial, CI, residential, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce the launch of the new DVR-LB3 DVR Lockbox. Shipping August 1, the low-profile DVR-LB3 has an MSRP of $236.95.

“The DVR-LB3 is the next in our series of DVR lockboxes, following our popular DVR-LB1 and DVR-LB2 lockboxes,” explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “The DVR-LB3 features all the security benefits of the others in the series, but its low-profile makes it perfect for today’s smaller DVRs and for installations restricted to limited space requirements.”

Due to the smaller, more compact chassis where heat issues may arise, VMP has included a single fan, as well as a mounting location for a second fan should additional thermal management be required. Multiple vents with vent blockers for active or passive thermal management have also been incorporated.

Additional features of the VMP DVR-LB23 lockbox include:
• Interior dimensions: 17.2in W x 21in D x 5in H
• Rack mountable on two or four posts with a three RU overall height
• Interlocking lift-off lid
• Key-locked hinged front door
• Black static resistant powder coat finish

According to Fulmer, high-end electronics have become a staple in today’s security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen without compromising remote control accessibility.

“Our DVR-LB3 is the next generation DVR lockbox, built upon the principle of creating peace of mind for those who require DVRs be installed in settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism, but at the same time allowing for the flexibility of a smaller housing solution,” Fulmer concluded.
