OSD Audio Introduces A Revolutionary Line of IR Repeater Products

Brea, Calif., OSD Audio, a Southern California-based manufacturer of whole-house audio products, has added an innovative line of IR Repeater Systems that revolutionizes conventional IR technology. A first for the industry and a true technological breakthrough, the IRP Repeater Kits allow users to add IR control of A/V equipment, CATV, IPTV, CCTV, DVR Set Top Boxes and more without the need of a hub or connection block.

In addition to the IRP Repeater Kits, the line includes high quality emitters, blasters, extension cables, and adapters to connect virtually any type of consumer electronics product. “Our new IR line is a game-changer,” notes Tim Leahy, product manager for OSD Audio. “IR repeater systems have been using the same connection technology for decades. Our line gives consumers and installers a plug and play solution that’s easier, more reliable, and more affordable than traditional systems.”

According to Leahy, the line vastly simplifies the installation process and is ideal for A/V, security and home automaton installers who spend hours hiding and installing connection blocks for IR systems. “Existing systems are bulky and sometimes double the price,” says Leahy. “Without a connection block, install time is literally cut in half.”

Elimination of the connection hub is just one of many features OSD Audio is promoting. The unique color and shape of the eye shells allow the IR signal to pass through easier and help deflect sunlight, as well as interference from plasma TVs, that can disrupt operation. In addition, all cables in the line have a durable but flexible outer jacket and are CL-rated for in-wall installation. IRP kits are available with single, dual, and triple emitters that can be easily expanded to control multiple electronics, and emitter extension cables can be added for longer runs without any degradation in the signal. The plug and play IRP Kits and accessories are available now at outdoorspeakerdepot.com.

QSC Q-Sys Offers Acoustic Echo Cancellation as a Standard Feature

Q-Sys CoreCosta Mesa, CA –(October 19, 2012) QSC Audio Products, LLC is pleased to announce that Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) is now available as a standard component of their acclaimed Q-Sys integrated system platform, which has quickly become the preferred choice worldwide for audio system control and signal transport.

Ideally suited for Q-Sys clients that utilize AV conferencing systems in such places as corporate boardrooms, meeting and convention spaces, hospitality installs, and government and legislative venues, the powerful QSC AEC process is easily deployed in Q-Sys Designer software as a simple, draggable component. And unlike AEC offerings from competing manufacturers which must be purchased as costly add-on input cards, the Q-Sys solution is 100% integrated into the Q-Sys Core without any additional cost to the user.

“Because of the powerful Q-Sys DSP processing engines, we have been able to offer Acoustic Echo Cancellation as an integrated feature to serve our customers,” says Joe Peavey, QSC Product Manager, Software. “The tight integration between the Q-Sys processor, DSP, hardware and control software, gives Q-Sys the ability to do AEC on audio signals coming from any number of sources such as mics, remotes, I/O frames and even over IP streams.”

Current Q-Sys customers can enjoy the AEC feature at no charge by upgrading to Q-Sys Designer Release 3.0 or newer. More information on the upgrade, as well as a new Q-Sys AEC whitepaper can be found at: www.qscmarketing.com/aec.

“We are excited to be able to offer AEC to our customers with Q-Sys,” adds Peavey. “And we continually have plans in the QSC pipeline to add more advanced and powerful features to Q-Sys which will benefit our customers. “

Q-Sys, the complete integrated system platform that encompasses everything from the audio input to loudspeakers, provides all the audio routing, processing, control and monitoring necessary for any facility while maintaining the audio quality and reliability QSC has come to be known for. Designed for the rigorous requirements of both small and large-scale venues, the power of Q-Sys has been demonstrated worldwide in a variety of applications, including stadiums and arenas, theme parks, performing arts venues, transportation hubs, corporate boardrooms, convention halls, government facilities, hotels and casinos and houses of worship.

FLOVEL UNVEILS HIGH-SENSITIVITY HD CAMERA

Records High-Resolution HD Images Under Moonlight Sensitivity of 0.01 Lux

Tokyo – FLOVEL Company Japan, a company in partnership with FOR-A Corporation, introduced its new FZ-B1 high-sensitivity HD camera at FOR-A’s booth during the 2012 IBC Show held last month in Amsterdam. FOR-A is the exclusive distributor of FLOVEL brand cameras in the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Africa, and sections of Asia. The new camera—designed for government and high-end security applications—will be available through FOR-A’s worldwide sales offices beginning next month.

As the latest addition to FLOVEL’s extensive line of high-end HD specialty cameras, the new FZ-B1 has at its core a 2/3-inch CMOS 1.3 megapixel color image sensor. The compact camera records in 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720p/60p and 720/50p formats and has an unprecedented low-light sensitivity of only 0.01 lux.

Superior HD color imagery combined with low-light sensitivity makes this camera ideal for demanding high-resolution applications, including day/night nature video production, surveillance, microscopy, and day/night policing and traffic control. To make the camera smaller and less obtrusive, customers may just use the sensor module without the camera housing.

“This new HD camera employs state of the art imaging technology. No other camera on the market offers such high-quality HD color video reproduction at such low-light levels as mere moonlight,” said Mr. Susumu Hotta, General Manager, FLOVEL. “We’re pleased to offer this breakthrough technology to customers with demanding, rigorous HD imaging applications throughout the world.”

The FZ-B1 works with any C Mount lens and has a suggested starting price of $30,000.

The FLOVEL FZ-B1 high-sensitivity HD camera joins an extensive product line that includes FLOVEL’s EM-120 ultra-high-sensitivity cameras for day and night observation. Based on FLOVEL’s 2/3-inch (1.3 megapixel) EM-CCD sensor, the EM-120 is a powerful, singular camera with a wide range of wavelength sensitivity from daylight to infrared, and the capability of infrared color mixing at moonlight luminance. With its 1330(H) x 980(V) 1080/59.94i HD resolution, the camera has been used for many critical applications, including round-the-clock observation of Fukushima nuclear power plant—from roughly 30 kilometers away.

Dedicated to an on-going R&D effort, FLOVEL is currently developing a new 8K camera for research and large-screen applications.

About FLOVEL:

FLOVEL Company, based in Tokyo, is a manufacturer of specialized cameras such as ultra-high sensitivity cameras, super high resolution cameras and golf simulation systems. FLOVEL has been known to the industry for development of specialty medical microscopy cameras and machine vision cameras. FLOVEL recently introduced 3D cameras.

Solving the Security Problem Facing Government Desktops


Advanced KVM Technology Protects Government Desktops from Cyberthreats  - http://bit.ly/NSKqzS

VNM100312 – Over a three-year period, government agencies reported a 400-percent increase in attempted incursions into federal systems – demonstrating that cyber attacks on government systems are increasing at an exponential rate. While there is no current data on the number of attempts to compromise intelligence and defense computer systems, they are no doubt under similar stress as foreign governments, terrorists, and malicious hackers target classified data and government documents, attempt to shut down networks and destroy valuable infrastructure, and steal intellectual property.

Firewall protection alone is not enough to deter sophisticated cyber threats. One of the least understood and most under-utilized preventative measures for thwarting attacks is the use of keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) switching devices that allow government employees to switch between networks with various security levels from one desktop. Cyber attacks from within an agency need to be as rigorously addressed as those originating from outside sources. However, government purchasers of KVM products need to thoroughly vet the security features, design, manufacture, and even the packaging of any product before trusting a deployment in any areas that require high security.

To learn more about securing government desktops from cyber threats with secure KVM, read the whitepaper: http://bit.ly/NSKqzS.
