AKG Showcases The DMM 4/2/2 Digital Automatic Microphone Mixer at PLASA

Today at PLASA, AKG announced the release of the DMM 4/2/2 automatic microphone mixer. The DMM 4/2/2 is a processor controlled digital automatic mixing algorithm with four balanced universal (microphone/line) inputs and two stereo AUX inputs providing a unique and very intelligent mixing algorithm with noise sensitive threshold.

The DMM 4/2/2 mixing algorithm automatically allocates gain among the system microphones (NOM attenuation) with a special noise detect function and the “Noise Sensitive Threshold? algorithm (NST) that eliminates an accidental switching of the input channels.

The mixing algorithm features a “Last Mic On? function as well as a “Best Mic On? mode and the revolutionary control concept allows users to access all microphone functions via a single rotary switch for a very intuitive operation.

To compensate for level differences or any other obstacle, the DMM 4/2/2 incorporates a dbx compressor/limiter, which provides clear and pristine sound quality more

SPARTA, N.J. ― Sept. 2, 2009 ― RTcom USA, Inc., a provider of digital connectivity solutions for professional and consumer A/V systems, today announced that it has enhanced its Digital Extender line of high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) matrix routers by adding an extended display identification data (EDID) mode select function.

In installations with a mix of component formats, they will all receive the format of the lowest-resolution display. The EDID mode select function corrects this issue by allowing users to choose the most appropriate EDID to ensure compatibility with all devices connected to the switchers’ outputs. more

Immediately noticeable is the Control CRV’s unique, contemporary, quarter-round design that makes a modern design statement, adding to any venue’s visual aesthetics in either a wall-mounted or corner-mounted configuration. In addition, this sleek appearance serves a notable functional purpose, as the Control CRV is combinable into half-round, three-quarter-round or a full, 360-degree round arc cluster that is suspendable from the ceiling via a fan pole assembly.
