At the Speco booth, the guys were busy with both audio and video enthusiasts while showing off their new HD CCCTV system for the security market. Speco has been around for nearly 50 years and they read the market pretty well at the nuts and bolts level. The most daunting task of installing new security systems has been the labor intensive cable runs where techs have to tear out the coax (or leave it in the conduits) and run twisted pair. Speco’s new HD CCCTV system delivers 720p video on 300-foot runs of coax so the re-cabling normally isn’t necessary for HD performance. This follows the same general trend of scaling the new and finding fresh ways to package high-tech systems. Audio Product Manager Scott Pisani showed me around the sound products including paging mics, amps and ceiling speakers. Among these, the G86 speaker has a choice of traditional or more modern grill design. Also attracting attention among the audio units in the booth was the new PAP160A self contained portable PA system with built-in USB MP3 Player and iPod Dock. Designed to go anywhere and have whatever you need for location playback onboard, the system targets any customer with a need for quick and easy location sound.
