RTI’s RTiPanel App Now Available for Android(TM) Devices and Third-Generation Apple(R) iPad(R)

Customizable to Any Screen Size, App Provides Complete Control Over RTI’s XP Series Processors and Connected Devices With Full Two-Way Feedback

SHAKOPEE, Minn. — May 16, 2012 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company’s award-winning RTiPanel app is now available for Android(TM) devices and the new Apple(R) iPad(R). Compatible with Android smartphones and tablets of any screen size, the app boasts unique features such as two-way feedback, a customizable user interface, and highly optimized connection speeds to provide complete control over any RTI control system with an XP series control processor.

Raising the bar for control apps, the RTiPanel stands out from the pack with unique features such as full two-way feedback including cover art, weather graphics, dynamic image lists, and much more for an unprecedented control experience. The app supports connection locally via Wi-Fi and offers remote access via auto-switching Wi-Fi and 3G/4G wireless — allowing for control and monitoring from virtually anywhere in the world.

Programmed through RTI’s award-winning Integration Designer(R) software, the RTiPanel app can easily match the resolution of any screen size, even the new iPad Retina(TM) display. New high-resolution graphics and a completely customizable graphical user interface allow integrators to provide consumers with a consistent user experience across all RTI controllers in their systems. This also allows integrators the ability to create a unique interface designed to set their devices apart. All graphics are conveniently stored on the XP series processor and automatically download to the tablet or smartphone device when updates are made.

Redefining ease of use, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by simply rotating the device. The programming process for supporting both orientations has been carefully designed to minimize the extra effort required.

“Our RTiPanel app has been a huge hit since its release for Apple devices, and was named a CEDIA Best New Product in 2011. We are very excited to bring this advanced functionality to Android users, in addition to providing compatibility with the latest iPad,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “By allowing control and monitoring both at home and away, the app provides a perfect complement to our control systems; one which our dealers can now offer to all of their customers.”

The RTiPanel app is available now for download from Google Play (formerly Android Market), the Apple App Store(SM), and coming soon to the Amazon App Store. Installers can purchase licenses online from the RTI website or from an RTI distribution partner to enable communication with their RTI control system.

METRIC HALO’S ULN-8 CENTERS SOLAR POWERED MOBILE RECORDING RIG

kj_kev_allaire.JPGVARIOUS LOCATIONS, NEW JERSEY – APRIL 2012: The video for Karmic Juggernaut’s new song, “Oo Wah Hoo,” documents the band’s inspiring and utterly fresh take on the recording process. Piloting a Subaru Outback topped with a plane of solar panels and freighted with a bank of batteries, the band toured its favorite locations in the great state of New Jersey to record each instrument in the glory of the outdoors. In the video, what you see – acoustic guitar on the beach, drums in the forest, wailing solo on the mountainside, and more – is what you actually hear. No lip-synching is afoot. In order to keep the power consumption low and the fidelity high, the project relied on the one-rack space, eight-channel, Metric Halo ULN-8 preamplifier/converter/interface for all studio functionality, save for microphones and a computer.

Highlighting tools to assist customers, Gepco will unveil its new Mobile Web Reference, as well as offer a first look at its upcoming Online Panel Designer™. Also debuting at the NAB Show, the Gepco® Brand TactiFlex™ Flexible Ruggedized Fiber Optic Cables will carry the signal for 3D-4U, Inc.’s 180-degree 3D Camera demonstration, alongside a demo for Gepco® Brand RunONE™ Powered Cables.

The Gepco® Mobile Web Reference, equipped with a competitor cross reference and a product directory, is designed to allow users to quickly and easily find Gepco Brand equivalent products and their specs from anywhere, at any time. A user can simply navigate to http://xref.gepco.com on his or her mobile web browser, click the Start button and submit a competing part number to find the Gepco Brand equivalent.

To be launched later this year, the Gepco Panel Designer will provide a time-saving, visual interface for designing custom panels via a web browser. With drag-and-drop features, Gepco’s Panel Designer will allow the user to choose the panel type, size, material, finish, connectors and lettering options so the user can quickly and easily submit his or her custom panel for a quote or order.

Designed for portable applications in harsh environments, the new Gepco® Brand TactiFlex™ Flexible Ruggedized Fiber Optic Cables are tough and lightweight, yet more flexible than standard ruggedized fiber cables on the market. With an outer jacket that is 30 percent more flexible while remaining abrasion-, chemical- and cut-resistant, TactiFlex cables offer improved performance while standing up to the harshest conditions.

TactiFlex will make its debut at NAB 2012 by carrying the signal for a demonstration of 3D-4U, Inc.’s 180-Degree 3D Camera in the Gepco Booth.

The immersive video technology developed by 3D-4U utilizes custom solutions designed and built by DigiMax Consulting and Gepco International. Among the custom solutions provided by Gepco are a 16-channel CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) Mux/Demux, a custom fiber reel, and custom panels and boxes, all of which are terminated with various connectors.

Making their first appearance at NAB, Gepco® Brand RunONE™ Powered Cables combine audio and power, along with optional data, under a single durable, yet flexible jacket. With multiple uses for corporations, DJs, lighting rigs and tours, RunONE allows the user to pull a single cable in place of multiple cables, providing a portable and neat solution that saves time and hassle. Each RunONE cable combines one channel of power with two, eight or 12 channels of 110 Ohm balanced audio for line level, mic level or digital AES audio signals and can be used with self-powered speakers or in DMX lighting control. Using real-time analytical software, Gepco will demonstrate the superior characteristics of Gepco’s RunONE cables by comparing them to similar products. The software will measure handling noise, interference and frequency performance for differences you can not only hear, but see.

“We’re pleased to not only be able to show off some new products this year at NAB, but also new tools that will improve the customer experience,” said Joe Zajac, Sales and Applications Engineer for Gepco® Brand Products.

Renton School District Selects IMT and Meraki for Wi-Fi Network

Nation’s First Campus-Wide 3-stream 802.11n Network

Pictured is Stosh Morency, Renton School District IT Director.

Renton School District in Washington state’s King County selected Integrated Media Technologies, Inc. (IMT) to implement Meraki’s MR24 cloud-controlled wireless access points to provide enterprise-class WiFi to all of Renton’s 16,000 students, faculty and staff.  Now equipped with the nation’s first campus-wide 3-stream 802.11n network, Renton School District has it installed at 29 sites, including elementary, middle, and high schools in and around the city of Renton.

“We want to put new technology in the hands of the students,” explained Stosh Morency, Renton’s IT Director.  “It’s a ‘bring your own device concept’ and by having the wireless network across all of our buildings, it opens the door for projects that were never an option before.  For us as a school district, we want to provide access to all of the students, regardless of where they are in the buildings.”

“This was one of our biggest projects,” remarked Garth Gilmour, IMT’s VP Professional Services. “The deployment makes Renton the first school district to adopt the latest generation of WiFi, featuring 3-stream, 900 Mbps performance.”  The award-winning Meraki Enterprise Cloud Controller centrally manages a total of 437 of Meraki’s high performance MR24 access points.

“New technology projects always have challenges,” added Morency, “but IMT and Meraki made it much easier to deal with.  The Meraki tools made it easier to troubleshoot problems and the IMT team was totally committed to the success of the project.”

“Through IMT’s thorough research and exacting implementation, Meraki allows me to manage the network across the entire district, and I’m a team of one,” said Todd Baker, Network Administrator for Renton School District. “The capabilities of Meraki’s Cloud Controller are considerable. There’s one dashboard for everything, from provisioning APs to troubleshooting client issues.”

The Meraki MR24, an ultra high-performing 3-stream 802.11n access point, is ideal for dense classroom environments and high-bandwidth applications.  Renton is deploying 437 access points, providing campus-wide coverage for its Computer on Wheels (COW) program, which provides classrooms with “COW carts” to stream video, data and other media.

With IMT’s help, Renton leveraged Meraki’s contract with the Washington Learning Source (WLS), which facilitates deployments for Washington state school districts. Prior to selecting Meraki, Stosh Morency and Todd Baker carefully evaluated a number of networking vendors, testing WiFi range, throughput, signal strength, and interference.

The ease of use and reliability of Meraki’s cloud controller impressed Baker. “I’ve had a controller go bad on me in the past.  With Meraki’s cloud controller, I’ll never have to deal with that again,” Baker said.  IT Director Stosh Morency added, “And the lifetime warranty of the products was a key factor in our decision making process.”

ABOUT RENTON SCHOOL DISTRICT
Renton School District educates students enrolled in elementary, middle and high schools in King County, Washington. The award-winning school district is at the frontier of technology implementation in accordance with its technology plan to promote and facilitate learning with emerging networking technologies.

HARMAN’s Soundcraft® Announces ViSi iPad Remote Control for its Digital Console Range, With the Chance to Win an iPad!

FRANKFURT, Germany – Prolight & Sound 2012 marks the unveiling and preview of the new HARMAN Soundcraft® ViSi Remote iPad app, which enables a single iPad to control multiple consoles from the Soundcraft Vi Series™ and Soundcraft Si Compact range on one wireless network.

The Soundcraft ViSi Remote app allows users to roam around in a venue and not only adjust input channel levels and mutes, but also adjust aux send levels and matrix sends, and level and graphic EQ settings on bus outputs.

The app uses HARMAN’s HiQnet™ architecture to connect a network of consoles to a wireless router, which communicates with the iPad.

For even more flexibility, multiple iPads may be used on the same network, even on the same console, so that individual artists could control their own monitor sends, for example.

The Soundcraft ViSi remote is expected to hit the iTunes store at the end of April 2012, and by pre-registering on the Soundcraft website users will not only be informed immediately when the app goes live, but will be entered into a prize draw to win an Apple iPad. (conditions apply, see website for details: http://www.soundcraft.com/apps/visi-remote).

Apple and iPad are trademarks of Apple, Inc., registered in the U.K. and other countries.

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of audio and infotainment solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets — supported by 15 leading brands, including AKG, Harman Kardon, Infinity, JBL, Lexicon and Mark Levinson.
