The End of an Era: RTcom USA’s Enhanced Digital Extender Line of HDMI Matrix Routers Solves Most Common Problem in Installed HDMI Video Systems

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. The increased functionality of the HS-66M Plus and HS-88M Plus solves the most common problem in installed HDMI video systems today: a source being able to output only one format at a time. 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

JBL Professional Offers Unique Combination of High Design, 70V/100V Transformer And Weather Resistance In Control® CRV Loudspeaker

Providing remarkable versatility for a broad scope of applications, JBL Professional is showcasing the Control® CRV loudspeaker at PLASA 2009. The Control CRV offers numerous mounting options and a wide range of configurations, providing an endless variety of solutions in terms of coverage, appearance and mounting.

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. A single Control CRV mounted at a wall-wall or wall-ceiling junction physically curves across the junction, acoustically coupling with the adjacent surfaces, widening the sound field, and producing an increased sense of sonic spaciousness.

New Software For Soundcraft Vi Series Brings Real Power To The User

With the Soundcraft Vi Series winning new friends daily, it’s not surprising that Soundcraft continues to develop this outstanding digital console with new features and facilities.

The main feature introduced in V4.0 is user-configurable fader layers. This allows an engineer to map out his own channels on any of 3 user layers so that a combination of different inputs can be placed on one layer, as opposed to the standard set of sequential channels on the 3 fixed layers. This allows, for example, the main vocalist mics to be programmed to appear in the same location on every layer, so they are always accessible, or bringing other essential channels closer to a central operating position. The 5 main output fader layers may also be customised in a similar way, meaning, for example, that 8 stereo aux masters can be used on one layer for instant access to multiple in-ear more
