Dual-drive CD recorder
CDR-882: This dual-drive CD recorder can be used in a REC-REC drive configuration. It supports extended recording time across two or more discs, simultaneous recording of two discs and high-speed duplication. The CDR882 features full 24-bit A/D and D/A converters and a high-quality quartz crystal-derived internal clock. The CDR882 uses noise-shaped dither onto CD to minimize quantization error noise, while audiophile-grade analog circuitry also plays a key role in ensuring superior sonic performance.
Emergency alert generator
EAS Listener: D.A.V.I.D. has added Emergency Alert System support to its program associated data functionality, giving stations the ability to display EAS alerts as text on RBDS and HD Radio-enabled radios as well as on their websites. The new EAS Listener connects to EAS receivers via RS-232 and monitors for incoming alerts. When an alert is issued, the EAS Listener formats the text and sends it to RBDS-enabled radios via Program Service Text or Radio Text. HD Radio-enabled receivers will also receive and display the text message. In addition, notifications of the EAS alert appear on all on-air workstations allowing hosts to read the announcement from a desktop computer. Station staff will be made immediately aware of the alert, giving them the earliest possible opportunity to determine if special coverage is warranted by the event. Also part of the module is an HTML export to allow stations to display the alerts on their websites and LED signs. It automates the logging of all of the EAS messages received as well.
USB microphone preamp
Mic Port Pro: Mic Port Pro is a portable, low noise USB mic preamp featuring 24-bit/96kHz performance, 48V phantom power, zero latency monitoring, loud headphone output, and adjustments for input and output level. Mic Port Pro offers driverless installation and lets users record with most Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X audio applications. Mic Port Pro ships with a 6' USB cable and a carrying pouch. It plugs into any XLR microphone and instantly transforms it into a recording device. Housed in a rugged aluminum chassis, the unit is powered from the USB cable and requires no additional power for condenser microphones even when using a laptop.
PMD620: A rugged yet lightweight digital recorder, the PMD620 houses two high-quality electret condenser microphones and a monitor speaker. It features an intuitive layout and tactile buttons for easy one-hand operation, while a high-contrast organic LED screen can be viewed under any lighting conditions. The PMD620 uses SD/SDHC cards, and audio can be recorded either as uncompressed WAV files or any of three quality levels of MP3 in mono or stereo.
Equalizer 18 Sectional Panels: These unique Equalizer 18 Section Panels are easy to install on ceilings or walls. Section 18 Panels are 18 inches deep and designed to diffuse sonic energy across the audio spectrum. They are available in three configurations: left section, center section and right section. The panels can be combined to fit a variety of installations. Depending on the number of panels and the mounting arrangement, these panels can effectively diffuse sonic energy down to below 30Hz.
