2010 NAB Show New Products
Active PA speakers
Auro D412, D415: Bridging the gap between fixed installation and portable applications, Samson's Auro active speaker systems are designed to encompass the key elements of power, portability and exceptional sound, the Auro D412 and D415 are lightweight, two-way active speakers that combine superior components and meticulous engineering. Both speakers provide 400W of output power and house a 1.34" compression driver. The D412 employs a 12" extended low-frequency driver while the D415 boasts a 15" low frequency driver for a little extra action on the bottom end. Two oversized carry handles and polypropylene construction make the Auro speakers portable and durable while a 1/4" line input, XLR mic input, volume control and two-band equalizer ensure professional sound capabilities and easy integration into a PA setup.
Motorized Coaxial Switch: This motorized coaxial switch (broadband 54MHz to 862Mhz) features a precision Geneva drive and operates on any VHF or UHF channel without tuning or modification. This makes it particularly suitable for switching multi-channel television systems and for use in N+1 transmitter systems.
MHR-422, MHR-425: The new Hosa MHR-422 and MHR-425 microphone clips are offered in 22mm and 25mm diameters respectively. These two sizes will readily accept the overwhelming majority of microphones currently available. The MHR-422 is designed for use with dynamic mics while the MHR-425 is designed for wireless mics. They are threaded for U.S. compliance and will fit atop most any microphone stand sold in the United States. Additionally, a European adapter is included. Both models are RoHS compliant.
VC Audio Pro: VC Audio Pro is a multitrack sound editor for the iPhone platform. It allows reporters or podcasters to record, edit and send professional-quality audio news clips or full stories from an iPhone with the touch of a finger. Designed for broadcast and podcast applications, this software enables users to record and edit high-fidelity audio into a news story, and send it instantly over Wi-fi or a cellular connection. VC Audio Pro is now available on the App Store and it can also be customized for radio networks and fully integrated into newsroom, media asset management and playout systems.
Reference Monitor Meters: There are eight new Reference Monitor Meters, five rack-mounted and three freestanding, each offering high resolution metering of between one and four stereo audio sources. Each stereo source is auto-switching between either analog or digital AES/EBU format with sample rates up to 192kHz accepted. The level of each stereo source is displayed on a pair of bright, multi-colored bar graph meters, with a large choice of accurately modeled scales/responses to suit different applications and local preferences. Five separate LED phase meters indicate channel correlation or phase error conditions, and additional LEDs show digital input lock and audio level alarm status. On the rear panel, open-collector alarm outputs provide hardware indication of audio under-level or silence, audio over-level, sustained phase errors above 90 degrees and digital source lock. All Reference Monitor Meters operate from global mains voltages (85-264Vac, 47-63Hz) without adjustment.
