Outline Showcases EIDOS 265 LA Compact Line Array Speakers at InfoComm 2012

Speakers Designed to Work with New FlySub Subwoofer Speaker

LAS VEGAS, JUNE 13, 2012 – Outline, the makers of high quality, industry leading speaker systems for touring, installation and studio applications, showcases the new EIDOS 265 LA Line Array Speakers at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C11549). Designed for small- to medium-sized touring and front of house applications including theater, house of worship and live club installations, the EDIOS 265 LA is an excellent and cost-effective choice for voice amplification, live music reproduction and program material.

“The new Outline EIDOS delivers the sonic quality expected from an Outline product but in a compact form factor and attractive price point,” says Tom Bensen, senior vice-president and managing director of Outline North America. “The engineering challenge was to develop an entry-level line array speaker system that would stand up to the sound quality of a larger system and the EIDOS 265 LA does just that. The speaker system is fully compatible with our new FlySub 15 passive subwoofer and together they deliver a crystal clear, full range sound for smaller venue sound reinforcement applications.”

The EIDOS 265 LA is a passive loudspeaker line array system element. It features two 6.5-inch mid-woofers, each with a 1.75-inch voice coil and ferrite magnet, and one High Frequency (HF) 1.4-inch throat-exit compression driver with a 2.5-inch voice coil. The two mid-woofers are bass-reflex loaded and are housed within the baffle located at the front of the enclosure, creating a semi-direct radiation system. The HF driver is loaded onto the waveguide, which features an acoustic lens specifically designed to obtain perfect summation between HF sections when coupled in an array configuration. The HF assembly is placed between the woofers. This gives a controlled, symmetrical horizontal dispersion (nominally 100-degrees). The vertical dispersion is sufficiently narrow to create a vertical array, but is wide enough to create predictable coverage when used in a ‘curved’ configuration, suggested for this array type.

An internal passive cross-over, utilizing top-grade components, is employed to deftly filter cross-over frequencies between the two active elements. Up to four cabinets can be powered from a single channel of Outline’s T5-DSP power amplifier. Each EIDOS 265 LA speaker has a nominal impedance of eight ohms and can handle up to 500-watts AES and 2000-watts peak. Connection is in the form of two NL4 wired in parallel.

The cabinet is built from high-quality birch plywood and the trapezoidal shape is optimized in order to achieve a very compact size. A sturdy, steel, painted grille, internally covered by sound-transparent foam, provides superior physical protection for the components housed at the front of the system. Four recessed handles facilitate handling and dedicated flight-cases make transportation easy and safe.

“In order to ensure extremely high resistance to stress, corrosion and abrasion, the integrated suspension hardware found on the EIDOS 265 LA is designed using a combination of top quality materials and industrial treatments,” adds Bensen. “The result is a rigging system that is light weight and simple to operate and set up. The angles between the array enclosures are selectable from 0-degrees to 10-degrees, in 1-degree steps, to maximize system coverage and up to sixteen EIDOS 265 LA speakers can be flown in the same array. The light-weight aluminum suspension frame allows the creation of both flown and stacked arrays for system flexibility. If necessary, the array’s low-frequency response can be extended via one or more FLYSUB 15 bass-units to deliver a truly remarkable sonic experience.”

ATM Fly-Ware Introduces New Audio Solutions at InfoComm 2012

New Rigging Solutions Cater to a Range of Permanent Applications

LAS VEGAS, JUNE 13, 2012 – ATM Fly-Ware, a division of Adaptive Technologies Group and the world’s leading designer of certified, pre-engineered professional loudspeaker-rigging systems for permanent installations and live performances, debuts several new audio-rigging solutions at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C9547), including its JBL VLA 601 Line Array systems, Gimballed Beam Clamps, Swivel Structural Beam Clamps and Steerables Tilt Cable Kit.

“ATM Fly-Ware is proud to showcase its latest rigging solutions for model-specific and general applications,” says Paul Allen, president, Adaptive Technologies Group. “As the live sound and permanent install industries evolve, ATM Fly-Ware is committed to following suit by providing multiple rig options for a range of applications.”

ATM Fly-Ware’s JBL VLA 601 Line Array System, available in shallow, medium and steep tilts, is a complete high-strength, load-rated line array permanent rigging system. It is specifically designed to quickly and safely connect, aim and fly the VLA601 model cabinets without adding significant weight. Its universal overhead grid offers multiple, front-to-back and left-to-right suspension points, which provide ample shallow-cluster down-tilt control capabilities. These capabilities are especially useful when hoisting and leveling clusters into place with winches. The system features two preset fixed-angle brackets, available from zero to ten degrees in one-degree increments, in the back of the cabinet. These allow users to set the down angle between cabinets in order to shape the line array cluster to meet the specific needs of the venue. The system is also available for JBL’s VLA901 model; stepping from the VLA601 to the VLA901 is easily accommodated by way of an innovative step/lock kit.

Part of ATM Fly-Ware’s Beam-Ware line, the Gimballed Beam Clamp is an overhead fastener that maintains its maximum working load at different angles. It is available in three adjustable sizes, BC3-8-GE for three- to eight-inch wide beam flanges, BC7-12-GE for seven- to 12-inch wide beam flanges and the BC12-18-GE for beam flanges from 12- to 18-inches wide. Loads can be suspended from any angle, up to 20 degrees off center, with the rigging maintaining a constant working load. Traditional beam clamps have a fixed or swivel eye bolt that achieves its maximum strength only when its load is suspended vertically. When the load is moved off center, the Gimballed Beam Clamp has the capability to side load, as the eye bolt swivels within the clamps channel in any direction. When the swiveling eye bolt reaches its maximum rotation of 20 degrees, the working load is reduced at a much shallower rate, making this clamp a much more predictable rigging device.

Swivel Structural Beam Clamps are time-saving rigging solutions that provide a safe and load-rated method of securing loudspeakers with pan and tilt adjustments. Once anchored to a beam, these clamps provide a simple and reliable method for aiming loudspeakers and other objects. Swivel Beam Clamps can be secured to a building’s overhead structural beams, steel or wood, for widths ranging from three- to 12-inch (76- to 305-mm). Its lower suspension arm, which rotates 360 degrees for precise aiming, is available in a variety of lengths to suit the needs of any installation. Swivel Beam Clamps support a variety of rigging and mounting options, including ATM Fly-Ware’s AJ Series of adjustable U-Brackets, fixed-length wire rope suspensions and its newest Steerables Tilt Cable Kits.

The Steerables Tilt Cable Kit is a new general purpose, complete loudspeaker suspension and aiming solution. Its versatile aircraft cable and pulley design allows installers to secure loudspeakers from an overhead grid structure or other suspension devices, then quickly and precisely tilt them into position using the adjustable pull-back feature. Loudspeakers and other objects can be suspended at the top of the cabinet to achieve slight down-tilt angles or be suspended from the back of the cabinet to achieve a steeper down-tilt angle. At the center of the design are clutch-lock and pulley mechanisms, which provide the pull-back cable with an in?nite range of locking-tilt angles. Two ?xed cables provide all of the necessary structural support, while the pull-back cable sets the tilt angle. Standard and custom-length ?xed cables are offered for a wide variety of applications. All Steerables Tilt Cable Kits are equipped with each of the necessary components for installation, providing an out-of the-box rigging solution.

Studio Technologies Showcases New 5100-Series Modules at InfoComm 2012

Units Include Support for SDI Video Generation and Intercom Interfacing

LAS VEGAS, JUNE 13, 2012 – Studio Technologies, the manufacturer of tailored, high-performance video, audio and fiber-optic products for the professional audio, installation and broadcast markets, showcases prototypes of four new products soon to be included in its 5100-Series of broadcast support modules at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C5950). These new units include the Model 5150 Video Generator, Model 5152 Video Generator with Audio Embedding, Model 5162 Video Generator with Audio De-Embedding and Model 5140 Intercom Interface. All units enhance production and delivery options for the education, corporate, worship and broadcast markets.

“The unique aspect of the new video-based products is the ability to store and output a custom high-definition video image at HD-SDI and 3G-SDI rates,” says Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. “The image, based on a bit-map (BMP) file typically created using a personal computer’s graphics program, is loaded into the modules via a standard USB flash drive memory stick. The image is automatically connected to electrical and optional optical SDI outputs whenever an SDI input signal is not present. This ensures that an SDI output signal is always sent to equipment further along the signal chain. This can be extremely useful, serving both as a ‘keep alive’ signal as well as providing a detailed graphics image for identification purposes.”

The Model 5152, in addition to the Model 5150’s video generation capability, allows four stereo digital audio signals to be embedded into the SDI signal. The eight channels of audio will always be embedded, whether or not an external SDI source is present. The Model 5162 includes video generation as well as de-embedding audio from an incoming SDI signal. The module also provides four stereo digital audio output signals.

The new Model 5140 Intercom Interface will also be displayed. Its unique capabilities provide a unified connection interface for both party-line (PL) and 4-wire (line level) intercom systems, offering a reliable and easy-to-use I/O panel for remote broadcast and infrastructure applications. The Model 5140 was specifically designed to allow “guest” users, including media crews, production or uplink trucks, and temporary equipment, to be quickly and efficiently linked to ports on a host intercom system.

Two input and two output signals, either analog or digital, are typically connected to ports on a facility’s matrix intercom or fiber-optic-based signal transport system. The Model 5140 contains a 4-wire to 2-wire converter and intercom power supply circuitry to provide a 2-channel broadcast-standard party-line intercom interface. This allows users to directly connect PL beltpack devices, as well as interconnection with existing party-line circuits. Two sophisticated auto-null circuits provide excellent audio performance. The Model 5140 also contains two analog 4-wire (line level) inputs and outputs on standard 3-pin XLR connectors. These are provided so that ports on a “guest” intercom system can be directly connected, as well as being compatible with a wide-variety of application-specific equipment. Status indicators and audio level meters help to ensure that optimal performance is maintained.

”All the 5100-Series modules require only a source of 12-volt power for operation and can be mounted in a variety of custom enclosures,” adds Kapes. “The modules should find use in applications including remote sports and entertainment broadcasting, stadium and arena input/output locations and corporate video infrastructure environments. They are designed for standalone use, as well as for connecting directly with other 5100-Series modules for video transport, audio input, audio output, IFB and intercom applications.”
