RTI’s New Cool Power(R) Amplifiers Now Shipping

Four-Channel CP-450 and 16-Channel CP-1650 Amplifiers Provide the Extra Power Needed in Large Installations

SHAKOPEE, Minn. — April 30, 2012 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company is now shipping its new four-channel CP-450 and 16-channel CP-1650 audio amplifiers. Designed as the perfect complements to RTI’s eight-zone AD-8 distributed audio system, these powerful new amplifiers provide an additional 50 W per channel to extend speaker outputs in larger installations.

“Our AD-8 distributed audio system provides 25 W per channel, which is ideal for most installations, but larger rooms and subzones might require more speakers and more power,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “We are pleased to offer our dealers a powerful, cost-effective solution to this installation issue with our new CP-450 and CP-1650 amplifiers.”

For optimal performance, the CP-450 and CP-1650 feature the same Cool Power(R) technology used by the AD-8′s built-in class D amplifier. In addition, the feature-packed CP-1650 offers audio input level adjustment on each channel, unique loop-in/loop-out connections for simple daisy chaining, and bridgeable audio outputs for increased power to a whopping 100 W.

For added flexibility, the CP-450 and CP-1650 amplifiers are suitable for rack-mount or freestanding installations. Convenient power control from different sources is made possible with voltage trigger, RS-232, and IR power control options. For situations that require more than one amplifier, voltage trigger and IR pass-through allow for control of an additional unit.

The CP-450 and CP-1650 are now available at MSRPs of $699 and $1,499, respectively.

BenQ’s Next-Generation LX60ST and LW61ST Education Projectors Now Shipping in Canada

Units Feature Mercury-Free Blue Core Light Engine for 20,000 Hours of Lamp-Less Operation and Ultra-High 80,000:1 Contrast Ratio

TORONTO — May 1, 2012 — BenQ Canada Corp. today announced that the first short-throw education projectors to feature the company’s cutting-edge, mercury-free blue core light engine are now available in Canada: the LX60ST and LW61ST. Designed to offer stunning visual performance and color accuracy with an ultra-high 80,000:1 contrast ratio, the blue core light engine utilizes a laser light source rather than a traditional mercury lamp. The result is up to 20,000 hours of reliable brightness, complete elimination of lamp replacement costs, and a 90-percent reduction in light source power consumption. In addition, BenQ’s blue core light engine-driven SmartEco Advanced(TM) technology optimizes the units’ light source systems to deliver exceptional brightness, longer life, and high-energy efficiency.

“For educators, the LX60ST and LW61ST blue core light engine projectors drastically reduce costs while offering unrivalled performance with their ultra-high contrast ratio,” said Mike Booker, Vice President of Sales at BenQ Canada Corp. “With the blue core light engine, users will never have to replace a lamp for the entire life of the product. Furthermore, there are no filters to change so schools simply need to install the projector and never touch it again for the life of the product.”

The units feature instant on/off to save time on warm up and cool down, in addition to manual brightness level adjustment to accommodate different classroom environments. To generate the best image contrast, the projectors’ “SmartEco Advanced” mode automatically determines the optimal brightness level based on the input source, while a “no source detected” mode automatically lowers brightness to 10 percent when no display has been detected for more than three minutes. With “eco blank” mode, teachers can blank out the LX60ST and LW61ST’s screens when not in use to redirect students’ focus, while lowering light source power consumption to only 10 percent.

The BenQ blue core light engine classroom projectors offer 2,000 ANSI lumen brightness, XGA/WXGA resolution, and 0.6/0.49 short-throw projection. The units feature two 10-W built-in speakers and microphone input, less than 0.5-W standby power, Apple(R) iPhone(R)/iPad(R) wireless display support, LAN display, USB display, and 360-degree tilted projection. The LX60ST and LW61ST are backed by a three-year parts and labor warranty.

More information about the BenQ LX60ST and LW61ST is available at www.BenQ.ca.
