Dynamic headphones


K 702: These headphones combine the superior sonic performance of AKG's K 701 with features demanded by recording and broadcast engineers in a professional package. The K 702's new features include a detachable input cable with a locking 3-pin mini-XLR connector. The high-performance, low-loss detachable cable makes transportation, service and storage easier. The new K 702s also feature a stage blue finish that is more rugged and professional looking than the K 701's gloss white color. The headphones feature flat-wire voice coils and their patented Laminate Varimotion diaphragms eliminate spurious resonances and deliver an engaging listening experience with out-of-head imaging so that engineers can hear all the nuances of their sound.

Vistamax enhancement


Vistatouch: Vistatouch is a Windows PC client application that expands access to common tasks within Vistamax for studio personnel with a simple and visually oriented presentation that provides secure system-wide control functionality to operators. Vistatouch software features user-activated Image Panels to initiate frequent, show-specific and day-part requirements. Each Image Panel is associated with specific session or macro tasks and controllable via mouse or touch-screen for optimum control. The Vistatouch software offers visual enhancements to the studio operator by associating predefined picture or live webcam images with each Image Panel. As many as 20 Image Panels can be assigned to each application to address multiple-user or requirement-specific presentations at every Vistamax-connected studio within the facility. The Live Webcam streams are ideal for visual cueing of live sources, especially useful for news and talk stations, and live multi-talent morning shows.

Analog-to-digital converter


A2D2: The Drawmer A2D2 is an AES Grade 1 dual stereo output analog-to-digital converter. It offers dual simultaneous stereo outputs, each with separately selectable sample rates, and additionally provides three word clock outputs, allowing the A2D2 to also act as a master clock generator. It also provides simultaneous dual stereo outputs that may each be selected to different sample rates, including 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176 and 192kHz. This permits, for example, the output of a high-resolution 192kHz version with a simultaneous lower resolution 44.1kHz version. Each digital output has a selectable word length of 16 or 24 bits, with automatic dither generation.

Audio processor


AM10-HD: The AM10-HD offers a five-band AGC followed by a specialized 10-band limiter and high performance asymmetrical modulation peak controller algorithm that has been specially designed for the requirements of competitive AM broadcasting. This new peak controller maximizes AM coverage by providing the highest possible average modulation accompanied by consistent positive peak capability of up to 200 percent. Selectable low-pass filters are available to tailor the output for the requirements of various regulatory needs. The HD signal path includes its own specialized multiband peak controller which has been tailored for the codec that is utilized in AM HD Radio broadcasting.
