DriveCore Install from Crown Expands with New Networked Amps

As the HARMAN family continues to develop an integrated approach to its product line with the HiQnet Audio Architect system for control and monitoring based on TCP/IP protocols, Crown (Booth C10122) is expanding with a powerful pair of amplifiers well-suited to high-power/high-quality installations.  The DCi Network Display 8|600 and 4|1250 amplifiers feature front-panel status display and AVB (Audio Video Bridging) connectivity.  The eight- and four-channel amps will be the first amplifiers to be certified by the AVnu Alliance, and are designed for reliable networked operation utilizing AVB network protocols.

 

The eight-channel DCi 8|600 delivers 600W into 8 ohms, (300, 600 and 300W into 16, 4, and 2 ohms), and the four-channel DCi 4|1250 provides 1250W per channel into 8, 4, or 2 ohms (625/ch. Into 16 ohms), with direct drive “constant voltage capabilities, eliminating the need for step up transformers in 70Vrms and 100Vrms applications.  A front-panel display and LED indicators provide at-a-glance indication of key parameters, and a large multifunction knob and push buttons access control functions.

PreSonus has Speakers in “the Worx”

PreSonus (Booth C11341) has announced acquisition of loudspeaker manufacturer WorxAudio Technologies, Inc., of Greensboro, North Carolina.  WorxAudio has been a leader in the mid- and large-scale church market, professional touring market, and corporate installations since it’s founding in 1979.  PreSonus intends to leverage the knowledge of these markets, and will take advantage of driver, systems, and mechanical design into future PreSonus offerings for the portable and touring markets, and the needed support of those customers.

 

WorxAudio will be demonstrating their TrueLIne™ X2 and V5 compact line arrays in Demo Room N104 (North Hall) at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, 2:30 pm, and 4:30pm Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Other WorxAudio products can be found at Booth C11746.

RSG adds Multi-format Switchers

Roland Systems Group (Booth C10536) launches the new XS Series- a new line of Muliti-Format Matrix Switchers with high-quality integrated video and audio conversion and switching.  Intended for fixed installations, three models support eight HDMI, RGB/Component/S-video/Composite inputs.  The XS-84H, XS-83H, and XS-82H all have 8 inputs, with four, three, and two HDMI or HDBaseT outputs respectively.

 

Ideal applications include conference rooms, educational auditoriums and media presentation rooms, performing arts centers, churches, convention centers, and teleconferencing, and 4k to 1080p.  Audio can be embedded into outputs, via the eight onboard stereo inputs (two also support microphones) and/or HDMI audio, as well as de-embedded on output.  The XS Series can be remotely controlled by the XS Remote, LAN connection, RS-232C, or the native iPad app.

GREAT SHOW!

infocomm-14-new.jpgWHAT A GREAT WEEK, but it’s finally over and the numbers are in, making this year’s show the second largest InfoComm event ever held, with 32,002 AV professionals attending from more than 90 countries. With 925 exhibitors filling the halls of the Las Vegas convention center, we were nearly overwhelmed by the sheer number of cool products and technologies—way more than we can cover in the space of this blog, so check back to the SVC website and in the new products, news, and technology showcase sections of our print editions for more InfoComm coverage in upcoming issues.

Meanwhile, InfoComm 2011 returns to sunny Orlando, Florida, next year from June 11 to 17, 2011. Mark your calendars now!

COUNTDOWN TO INFOCOMM

infocomm10-logo.jpgINFOCOMM ROLLS INTO LAS VEGAS this week and it’s definitely THE place to be for anyone serious about audio and video systems, and digital signage/display technologies. The one thing constant about technology is that it’s always in a state of change and InfoComm is an ideal forum for keeping up new standards and the state of the art.

infocomm09_floor.jpgFounded just a year ago—and celebrating its first birthday at InfoComm—the AVnu Alliance has been advancing pro-quality audio/video by promoting IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) standards over various networking link-layers. AVnu promotes the benefits of AVB technologies and will create compliance test procedures and processes that insure AVB interoperability of networked A/V devices, with the goal of better A/V experiences for end users. For anyone involved in the installation/manufacturing/sales/distribution/operation of A/V products, AVnu is a good thing. more…

Vaddio’s TrackVIEW Hits InfoComm

Vaddio TrackVIEW at InfoComm 09Vaddio‘s booth was a popular destination for people who like to watch cameras move. The TrackVIEW system can use a number of activation methods to make a conferencing or presentation camera follow the presenter in a much less stilted and mechanical looking way than was previously the norm with such equipment. Pressure mats, IR sensors, and human control can all be linked together and easily selected to allow the TrackVIEW system to do just that—track and view the subject on camera and stay with them. Through the use of multiple types of activation schemes, the system can be adapted to suit just about any environment and it looks like the Vaddio people were having just as much fun demonstrating it as the onlookers were having watching the gadgets work. These gizmos would have made Stanley Kubrik’s HAL, the computer, proud.
