All in full color and with internal memory to save results, as well as the ability to export to a computer via micro USB cable for record keeping and printing. All test results can be exported in a spreadsheet or a graphic format.”

The full-featured Cable Prowler measures cable length (using TDR technology) and generates tone levels for signal tracing and cable identification on all pairs, a selected pair, or a selected pin. “All of this displayed in a bright color graphical display for easy viewing in any environment,” added Jang. “Cable Prowler also has the ability to name each cable.”

For security and powered networking applications, the Cable Prowler detects the presence of PoE on the network drop and what class of PoE per IEEE 802.3 af/at with load test for voltage drop. As with the other tests, these results can also be saved and exported for record keeping.

Severtson Screens Updates Legacy Series with Acoustically Transparent Screen Material; Launched at 2014 CEDIA Expo

Mesa, Ariz., July 31, 2014 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the home theater, education, house of worship, commercial, and pro AV markets, is pleased to announce that it has added a Bright White Acoustically Transparent (BWAT) screen material option to the acclaimed Legacy Series line-up. To coincide with the updated Acoustically Transparent (AT) materials and specifications, Severtson Screens has also set new aggressive dealer and distributor pricing for the entire Legacy Series projection screen line.

Now shipping and Made in the USA, Severtson Screens will officially launch the updated Legacy Series line during CEDIA Expo 2014, held in Denver from Sept. 11-13 at the Colorado Convention Center, booth #110.

“New high-end material options plus lower dealer and distributor pricing equals better overall sales margins,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “By updating the Legacy Series line with the most modern, state-of-the-art, and end-user-desired AT (perforated fabric) materials available and by controlling production in our own facility in Mesa, Ariz., we have been able to build and offer an even better screen while at the same time reducing overall manufacturing costs. We are passing those savings on to our dealers and distributors.”

As a result, now dealers and distributors can offer their customers multiple screen material options when selling and installing the acclaimed Legacy Series, all at a higher profit margin.

“Our customers asked for an even higher-end, acoustically-transparent screen solution for the Legacy series, and we responded,” added Severtson. “Designed for applications where a more realistic soundstage is desired, the Legacy’s new addition of BWAT allows for the installation of speakers to be placed directly behind the screen surface. With virtually no loss to the audio soundstage along with sharp image quality, its specially designed perforations allow the sound to pass through the screen material smoothly.”

The Legacy Series’ acoustic material is framed on a 30 degree angle to avoid moiré, and its AT surface is washable with mild soap and water, while also being flame retardant and mildew resistant.

Additional features include:
• Heavy duty contoured 3 1/8-inch aluminum frame
• Frame wrapped in light absorbing black velvet (the corners are matched perfectly)
• Severtson’s exclusive Tension Rod system provides a perfectly flat surface
• Sliding mounting brackets make for easy installation; allows for horizontal adjustment
• Fast assembly where each piece is individually wrapped, labeled, and organized
• Double boxed for protection during shipping
• Viewing angle: 60 degrees
• Gain: 1.0
• Assorted sizes available for 16:9 / 1.78:1 HDTV, 16:10 / 1.6:1 WidePC, 2.35:1 CinemaScope, and 4:3 Video formats
• Basic materials include Cinema White and Cinema Grey

Severtson asks that customers contact them directly for individual pricing for their specific needs. Dealers wishing to register with Severtson Screens for pricing and other details, please visit http://www.severtsonscreens.com/register.

“Watching movies at home is supposed to be fun and a great way to bring the family together much like a trip out to the big cinema does,” Severtson added. “We designed the BWAT Legacy Series to be just that…a way to bring the big screen experience home so that everyone can enjoy both the stunning visuals and unaltered audio as the movies were intended to be seen.”

Approaching its 30th anniversary in 2016, Severtson Corporation continues to be a global leader in innovation and quality. The Severtson family’s extensive experience in manufacturing small home theater screens and large cinema screens has given Severtson Corporation the expertise to meet the needs of the professional and consumer AV markets for both indoor applications as well as large outdoor venues.

Severtson Screens Announces Acclaimed Spirit Series In-Ceiling Motorized Projection Screen Now 4K Ready

Mesa, Ariz., July 15, 2014 – Severtson Screens (www.severtsonscreens.com), a global leader in innovative and quality projection screens for the commercial, home theater, and pro AV markets, is pleased to announce that its acclaimed and popular Spirit Series motorized projection screen is now 4K ready and available for immediate shipping.

“The enhanced 4K-ready Spirit Series electric screen is a motorized screen that is designed for use in commercial and residential environments where the screen is needed to disappear when not in use,” explained Toby Severtson, president and CEO of Severtson Corp. “Any installer will tell you that no two installations are alike, no matter if it’s in a home, church, boardroom, school, hospital, or any other setting. The Spirit Series gives the customer and the installer the flexibility of yet another option to ‘hide’ the screen when desired. That’s great news because sometimes it’s just not aesthetically pleasing or functionally practical to always have the screen showing.”

Designed to perform, the Spirit Series triangular-shaped weight bar forms a solid bottom in closed position giving the ceiling a clean appearance with no slot opening. Its high-end motor is mounted inside the roller on special vibration insulators for ultra-silent operation and, in addition, its white durable all-aluminum case meets UL plenum testing standards.

“Another benefit is that its slender, seamless profile makes it easy to install above most ceilings,” Severtson added. “This high-quality screen is flame retardant, mildew resistant, and available in either matte white [1.0 Gain] or matte grey [.8 Gain]. Plus, all the mounting hardware is included. It’s everything the installer needs.”

Versatility is also key for the Spirit Series. Installation options include wall, ceiling, or cable suspended operation. 20-inch black drop for 16:9 models and 14-inch black for 16:10 models are available, as well. Standard sizes include 92-inch – 120-inch (diagonal) HDTV format (16:9 / 1.78:1), and 95-inch – 123-inch (diagonal) Wide PC format (16:10 / 1.6:1). Custom sizes are also available.

And, to complete the package, the Spirit Series also comes with:
• IR eye
• IR eye extension port and extension cable
• Wireless handheld IR remote control
• 12Volt trigger connection by 3.5mm jack
• Trigger cable
• RS232 control port
• Limit switch adjustment tool

Noble Fidelity’s Award-Winning Architectural Loudspeaker – The L-85 MK II

RENO, Nev., July 11, 2014 – Noble Fidelity (www.noble-fidelity.com), the company known as the first in the U.S. to be 100 percent EU RoHS compliant, manufacturing sustainable “Green” (eWaste) In-Wall/Ceiling loudspeakers, is proud to announce the recent launch of its award-winning mk ll version of its most popular loudspeaker – the L-85. The L-85 mk II is now shipping and retails for $899/pair.

“The recent launch of the L-85 mk ll has already garnered industry awards and tremendous accolades from customers and industry reviewers alike,” explained Greg Ford, Principal of Noble Fidelity. “The L-85 mk II 8-inch, 2-Way, high performance round mount loudspeaker is suitable for both in-ceiling or in-wall use.”

Round and square frameless grilles are included for aesthetic choice. These grilles are frameless-bezel less, low profile, ultra-fine perf, magnetic stainless steel held firmly in place with 24 beveled neodymium magnets and may be painted to match or accent mounting surface(s).

“Utilizing a far-forward woofer mounted in a small footprint diffraction limiting frame together with a pole-mounted soft dome, lens-free tweeter, this excellent design avoids the diffraction and near-field boundary distortions that plague many other in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeaker designs,” added Ford. “They are tuned for high fidelity and linear performance in standard drywall construction, with system-concentric wide-field dispersion. The line is very closely voice-matched pursuant to the classic British octave-to-octave balance that has made a number of British loudspeaker models famous over the past 30 years.”

Additional highlights and specifications include:
• Kevlar® fiber 8-inch (203 mm) native yellow, square-woven woofer (DuPont) with butyl surround
• Tetoron® 1-inch (25 mm) pivoting soft dome tweeter, woven-textile, lens-free, neodymium motor
• Midrange and high frequency 3-position acoustic compensation switches
• Audio grade metal film polypropylene capacitor populated fiberglass board crossover circuit
• Drivers wired with audio grade, high strand count, oxygen free copper high current speaker cable
• Vibration dampening motor boots
• T-Stop signal-powered protection circuit prevents tweeter driver failure
• Heavy spring-loaded gold-plated connection terminals accommodate up to 10 gauge speaker cable
• Edge/Ledge smoothing diffraction ring
• 24 beveled neodymium grille retention magnets
• Square seating dog ears clamp down to 5/16-inch (8 mm)
• Rated for deployment in high humidity environments
• Includes nylon insulation isolating top hat. Top hats “pop” into shape covering the top of the loudspeaker protecting it from ceiling/roof insulation material fibers and dust. Top hats are acoustically “absent” in that they do not restrict cone excursion
• Frequency response: 38Hz – 21kHz ±3dB on reference axis
• Sensitivity: 91dB spl (2.83V, 1m)
• Nominal impedance: 8 Ohms
• Recommended amplifier power: 5W – 200W on unclipped program within frequency domain
• Lifetime Limited Warranty

Considered one of the highest performance loudspeaker manufacturers in the custom installation sector of the consumer electronics industry, Noble Fidelity is also considered to be one of the most “Green” in its product design, and implementation. Founded in 2006 in Carson City, Nevada, Noble Fidelity offers customers and dealers alike, audiophile performance from In-Wall/Ceiling loudspeakers together with unparalleled customer service. The company works with dealers, consumers and the design community with acoustical help, CAD drawings and beyond, so that customers capture the best and most tangible virtues of their investment: value, fidelity, ease of acquisition, ease of implementation and ultimately, genuine and enduring satisfaction.
