2010 NAB Show New Products
The 2010 NAB Show is upon us, and we have some last looks at what will be shown this year. These are in addition to the full complement of products in the March NAB Extra! You can also find more new convention products in the weekly NAB Insider e-mail newsletter.
And don't forget to look for the Pick Hits on Thursday at the convention. The original technology recognition taps the convention's best new products.
IP console/routing system
iQ: The iQ's package includes: a control surface, DSP-based mixing engine, audio I/O, machine-control logic, even a built-in Ethernet switch. Simply connect the control surface to the Core with a single cable, add audio inputs using CAT-5 cable, perform some fast Web-based configuration, and iQ is ready to broadcast. Simple networking lets users daisy-chain up to four iQ Cores without the need for an external Ethernet switch. Or, connect it to an existing Axia IP-audio network with a single Ethernet connection. IQ is fully customizable and scalable. Start with the eight-fader iQ main frame and add expansion frames with more faders and capabilities to suit your studio's needs. Add an optional backup power supply. Add more faders and programmable routing control panels -- there's even a six-fader expansion frame with a built-in controller for the latest Telos talkshow systems.
Digiplexer 2/4 (1 Band): The latest addition to Audemat's Radio All in One range is the one-band version of the Digiplexer 2/4. The range delivers many savings and efficiencies by combining key functions such as audio processing, RBDS encoding, stereo encoding, audio back-up and I/O remote control into a single 1RU chassis. Recognizing that the majority of stations will perform their main audio processing operation at the studio site, the one-band unit has been specifically designed for transmitter site operation. Should a broadcaster's requirements change, the Digiplexer 2/4 can be upgraded from one-band to two- or four-band option by means of a software upgrade.
PC-XY: Wheatstone's PC-XY software application is designed to provide complete XY control of a Wheatnet-IP source and destination matrix. The PC-XY application (sold with a site license) installs onto existing PCs; no additional hardware is required. Key features include: 8 programmable hot buttons for frequently needed sources and/or salvos, low overhead on the PC, plus configurable signal visibility. PC-XY is very useful for remote control of signal routing, and when coupled with the Wheatnet-IP audio driver makes a great source selection and monitoring tool.
AES/EBU digital audio DA
DDA-416/WC106: The Model DDA-416/WC106 is an integrated package containing four 1×4 AES/EBU digital audio distribution amplifiers and one 1×6 clock distribution amplifier. Operation of the unit is simple and straightforward, and it is housed in a rugged 2RU enclosure. All audio connections are made directly to the unit's built-in XLR and BNC connectors, and no special breakout cables are required. Signal routing is provided via rear panel accessible DIP switches.
