MKH 8000: The MKH 8000 series of microphones combines the company's exclusive RF condenser technology with a compact, modular form factor and a range of application-specific accessories for broadcast, recording and performance use. The MKH 8000 series is available in three models, offering omni-directional, cardioid or super-cardioid pick-up patterns. All of them feature an extremely wide frequency response.

DCBR: This antenna consists of a crossed-dipole radiator fed in phase quadrature and mounted within a circular cavity. The cavity used in this circularly polarized FM antenna is a welded, stainless steel or galvanized grid. The cavity grid is supported from a center mounting plate, which also serves as a mounting for the dipole assembly and for attachment of the unit to the supporting structure. The use of grid cavities and aerodynamic design significantly reduces weight and windload requirements of the supporting structure. Multistation operation can be achieved only with the wide bandwidth characteristics the DCBR antenna offers. The antenna is stainless steel with three or four configurations available, power ratings up to 10 class C stations, single or dual EIA inputs up to 9", ABS feed point randome, low downward radiation, near omni-directional free space pattern performance, RH circular polarization, low weight and wind load.
Field recording mic
Superlux E522, E523: The Superlux E522/B features a closely matched pair of capsules in an X/Y configuration, an integrated switchable low-cut filter, external on/off switch, the ability to operate on either battery or phantom power and dual unbalanced outputs. The Superlux E522/B excels as a stereo field recording microphone. Featuring two closely matched fixed-charge, back plate, permanently polarized condenser capsules with an X/Y stereo polar pattern, the new E522/B captures live performances with broad spatial effect.

Power Tiller: This omni-directional, circularly polarized FM broadcast antenna with rugged copper and corrosion-resistant brass construction is available in high power (PSIFHR) for input power up to 60kW and medium power (PSIFMR) for input power up to 15kW. The elements are stacked in arrays of up to 12 bays for increased gain and are end-fed from a support boom. For arrays requiring beam tilt and/or null fill a center feed system is required. The entire antenna system including the feed is pressurized. Each antenna is supplied with standard galvanized mounting brackets for round leg mounting on uniform cross section towers. Custom mounting brackets are also available. For those antennas exposed to adverse weather conditions, fiberglass radomes are available.
FM-5: One of the newest members of the Vorsis processing family, the FM-5's features include a proprietary five-band multiband dynamics controller along with a precision 10-band final limiter with distortion-masked clipper. The FM-5 also ships with a high-pass filter that may operate in stereo or M/S modes; automatic audio source fail over on analog and digital audio inputs; separate audio input gains for analog and digital inputs; four-band parametric equalizer; five-band linear phase crossover with adjustable crossover points; FM output simultaneously available as AES3 and analog; and reference-grade multiplex encoder with selectable composite clipper, multiplex filter and twin composite outputs.
LED obstruction lights
L-810: The RTO Series of LED obstruction lights utilize a patent-pending optical design and can be operated in steady or flashing mode. They are available as either single or dual FAA-compliant fixtures for new installations or as retrofit lamp assemblies with adapters for replacing existing incandescent lights. The new lights comply with FAA AC NO: 150/5345-43F; Canadian Aviation Regulation CAR 621.9 (Transport Canada); ICAO (Annex 25, November 2004 Fourth Edition); Low-intensity Type A (10 cd); and Low-intensity Type B (32 cd). The shock- and vibration-resistant RTO Series features advanced high-flux LED technology that lasts years longer than incandescent lights and uses 95 percent less energy.
Element Touchscreen Timer Panel: Board operators and hosts using Element consoles have access to a full-featured time-keeping suite using console-mounted controls. Now, the Element Touchscreen Timer Panel gives studio guests, producers and show hosts access to these functions with a touch-sensitive interface. The Touchscreen features configurable, digital and analog time-of-day clocks, an elapsed-time counter with freeze and pause functions, expansion ports than can host up to five more Element studio accessories, a built-in Web server and the option to be desk or turret-mounted.
