Online tech courses
Society of Broadcast Engineers
SBE University: As part of the society's renewed focus on engineer education, the SBE has launched the SBE University. This series of online, on-demand courses is designed to provide instruction on a variety of technical radio and television topics to broadcast engineers. The first three courses offered by the SBE University are now available for enrollment: AM Antenna Modeling, FM Transmission Systems, Matching Networks and Phasing. Additional courses are being developed.
Power conditioners and voltage regulators
Prestige Series: The Prestige Series includes the P-1800 PF R power conditioner, P-1800 AR voltage regulator, and P-1400 AR E export voltage regulator. The P-1800 PF R utilizes Furman's Power Factor and Clear Tone Technologies, providing audio amplifiers with a consistent sound. The P-1800 PF R is also ideal for in-studio setups that use powered monitors for playback of recorded material. Furman's Power Factor Technology reduces ac line impedance by providing a 45-A peak current reservoir. Clear Tone Technology adds an additional level of linear filtration for a lower noise floor. The P-1800 AR provides consistent 120V output from input voltages ranging from 97V to 137Vac. Furman's True RMS Auto Regulation Technology utilizes an ultra-low noise, microprocessor-controlled eight-tap toroidal autoformer, assuring quiet operation for critical listening and recording applications with minimal leakage of stray magnetic fields. The P-1800 AR features a switchable front panel digital voltmeter/ammeter with color-coded voltage range indicator for comprehensive power monitoring. The P-1400 AR E provides all of the technology of the P-1800 AR to overseas markets.
Crystalcon: The Neutrik XX series XLRs have been blinged with Swarovski crystals. Named Crystalcon, this connector line is geared toward users looking for that extra sparkle on stage. Fancy and attractive, the crystal XLRs and crystal plugs are eye catchers, offering a unique appearance and innovative look. Now visually enhanced by Crystallized-Swarovski Elements, Crystalcon is based on established Neutrik connector products, offering all the benefits and features found in the company's best-selling XLRs.
In-line USB converter and preamp
Icicle: Icicle is an in-line USB converter and preamp that makes connecting XLR microphones directly to a Mac or PC simple. There are no drivers, I/O boxes or converters required. Icicle works with dynamic and condenser microphones, providing connectivity for recording, podcasting, voiceovers and other uses. Icicle features a studio-quality microphone preamp, 48V phantom power, fully balanced low-noise front end, analog gain control, plug-and-play driverless operation, 44.1kHz, and 16-bit CD quality converter.
