Depending upon the quantity printed, the price per label will be significantly less than labels printed on flexo or offset.
Digital radio console
On Air 2500: The Studer On Air 2500 is a totally self-contained system and builds upon the operational concepts of its predecessor, the On Air 2000. With the On Air 2500, the control surface, I/O breakout, DSP core and power supply are all integrated within a single compact chassis. The console's fader strips each include a graphical OLED (organic LED) screen, which contains a channel label, level and gain reduction meter and parameter readouts, adjustable via a rotary encoder and two push buttons below the display. OLED screens have a much wider viewing angle than LCDs, and have much higher definition, so operators can immediately see information much more clearly. The large TFT color touch screen uses Studer's patented Touch'n'Action system, where only the most important functions have hardware control elements in the channel strip making the consoles' operation very simple and stress-free.
Merit X Series: The Merit X Series is an upgrade to Furman's existing Merit line, which provides convenient, rack-mountable power conditioning products. The M-8x provides eight filtered and protected rear-panel outlets with a front-panel convenience outlet, and a Protection OK indicator light. The M-8Lx adds pull-out light tubes (with dimmer knob) for discreet rack illumination, while the M-8Dx provides light tubes as well as a laboratory-grade, front-panel digital voltmeter to monitor incoming voltage. The Merit X Series features better protection with a higher joule rating, increased noise filtration for a lower noise floor and a more robust chassis, with wall-wart outlet spacing on the rear panel to accommodate bulky power transformers.
Automatic mixing controller
Dan Dugan Sound Design
Model E-1: The Model E-1 automatic mixing controller helps professional audio mixers handle multiple live mics without having to continually ride their inidual faders. This eight-channel signal processor patches into the input insert points of an audio mixing console. It detects which mics are being used and makes fast, transparent cross-fades, freeing the mixer to focus on balance and sound quality instead of being chained to the faders. The Model E-1's voice-controlled crossfades track unscripted dialogue perfectly, eliminating cueing mistakes and late fade-ups while avoiding the choppy and distracting effects common to noise gates. Without the need for gating, a natural low-level room ambience is maintained.
Prospec Decibel Drop: Prospec Decibel Drop, a high-performance viscoelastic damping compound, decreases the sound traveling to adjacent rooms. It is easy to install between layers of drywall, plywood or sub flooring in new and retrofit applications. This product offers exceptional damping properties and performance in low frequencies. It can be used on walls, floors and ceilings in new construction or retrofit applications. It is Class 1 fire rated.
IQOYA: Digigram's IQOYA series of IP audio hardware equipment and software solutions includes Call, Link, Serv, VCall, VMote, and VCast. Call is a two-channel IP audio contribution codec with SIP; Link is a two-channel IP audio distribution codec; Serv is a multichannel versatile IP audio server; VCall is a soft IP audio contribution coded with SIP; VMote is an IP audio remote contribution with SIP; VCast is an intranet IP audio distribution software suite. More than just a point-to-point transport solution, IQOYA devices and software constitute the elements of a highly flexible and manageable professional IP audio infrastructure for contribution, delivery and distribution. An agile IP audio infrastructure allows broadcasters to adapt to quickly changing program content needs. IQOYA products are based on FluidIP, a N/ACIP-compliant IP audio codec engine developed by Digigram. This provides interoperability with third-party IP codec devices, while adding unrivalled robustness, QoS optimization, stream integrity and audio quality.
Audio level controller
ALPS-1: The ALPS-1 provides control of perceived loudness, dynamic range and peak level. The design is suitable for all situations where some combination of these three must be powerfully yet unobtrusively controlled. A truly versatile design, it is ideal for codec protection, satellite feeds, transmitter protection and remote broadcast site operations. The ALPS-1 brings consistency to all program streams without erasing musical dynamics, ends listener annoyance from over-loud segments such as commercials and shouting DJs, improves audibility and clarity of program, eliminates overload distortion and damage forever, eliminates the inconvenience of unauthorized tampering with front-panel controls and maintains program path reliability.
