Audio Vault X: Audio Vault X is a new studio platform with more capacity and flexibility for adding and personalizing format channels on the Internet or over the air. New capabilities enable broadcasters to do more with less. Audio Vault X handles complex segues, such as inserting donut tracks in the middle of a song, station ID or weathercast. It can even do double donuts - that is, drop in a voice or other segment in the middle of a song or jingle twice. Plus, talent can manipulate fades, audio levels and other characteristics of segues. Personalized studio mashups combine studio tools and applications from more than one source into a single workspace. The Audio Vault X multi-thread engine enables talent in separate studios to work collectively off the same log, in real-time. BE's Audio Vault X is a complete digital media system for live-assist or satellite operation. The new platform offers on-air studio operation as well as a full suite of scheduling and production modules for multi-track editing, music rotation and ad insertion.
SS-R1, SS-CDR1: The SS-R1 and SS-CDR1 are a pair of single-rack-space Compact Flash recorders. Designed for applications that previously used a cassette or Mini Disc recorder, the SS-R1 records in WAV or MP3 formats to achieve extended recording times. The SS-CDR1 adds a slot-loading CD recorder for additional recording and audio transfer functions. Each recorder includes balanced and unbalanced audio inputs and outputs, RS-232 and parallel control and a wired remote control.
Digiplexer 246: The Digiplexer 246 processor is similar to the Audemat Digiplexer 2/4, but the 3RU device provides 2- or 4-band audio processor with an RBDS and stereo encoder, audio back-up and remote control capabilities. The unit is available with a 10W, 20W or 100W exciter.
Head Pod: The Model 454 Head Pod is a four-output headphone distribution pod with four independent stereo power amplifiers. Working with any headphone type, the Head Pod provides high headroom to avoid clipping even at high sound levels. Designed for ultra low distortion and wide frequency response capabilities, the Model 454 also allows for longer listening sessions without listener fatigue. Individual volume controls are provided for each of the four headphone outputs, made with durable metal jacks. A master volume control on the Head Pod allows for matching of source levels. It connects to any analog source, with a rear panel selector switch to choose between balanced sources (discrete left and right) and unbalanced sources.
KK 131, KK 143, KK145: Neumann has doubled the number of modular capsule head options for the KM D miniature digital series of microphones with the introduction of the new KK 131 (free field-equalized omni-directional), KK 143 (wide cardioid) and KK 145 (cardioid with low frequency roll-off), which are all derived from the analog KM 100 and KM 180 series. The three new modular capsule heads join three existing options for the KM D microphone series, which locates Neumann A-to-D converter technology in the microphone immediately next to the capsule. Like these latest additions, the existing KK 183 (diffuse field-equalized omni-directional), KK 184 (cardioid) and KK 185 (hypercardioid) capsule heads were also developed from the KM 100 and KM 180 series of miniature analog microphones. The KM 100 series AK capsule heads are not interchangeable with KM D series capsule heads.
