Portable PA system
EXL250 Expedition Express: Designed to be lightweight and compact, the new Expedition series delivers excellent sound dispersion, thanks to sleek, molded cabinets with substantial internal bracing to support its thick sidewall construction. The Expedition enclosures feature an improved, custom-designed 12" low frequency driver. Their 1" titanium compression driver with an elliptical wave-guide horn controls dispersion for a linear response. Other features include Speakon connectors, convenient fly-points, steel grill and a scuff-resistant textured finish. The most comprehensive version of Expedition, the XPL300, is a powered loudspeaker with a built-in four-channel stereo mixer, 24-bit digital effects processing and Ipod dock.
Model 720: A third-generation product in the Inovonics line of RBDS encoding and decoding products, the 720 has a front-panel LCD screen to allow users to scroll through and confirm all setup and operating parameters without the need for a computer on site. Incoming data from station automation can be seen on the fly, and scrolling song titles and other messages are displayed exactly as they are seen by listeners. The 720 automation command set remains compatible with earlier models for seamless integration along existing encoders, and a new no headers mode allows use with unformatted, satellite-streamed song title feeds. Intuitive, self-guiding software, built-in data diagnostics and transmission safeguards make installation virtually foolproof.
Custom Foam Inserts: Once a customer has selected an SPC case to fit his requirements (size and type), SPC will then custom build the secure tool or equipment inserts for an exact fit from a variety of high-quality foam type options. Tools and test equipment, which can also be purchased through SPC, are carefully measured and specified for precise die-cut mounting to ensure a firm and secure fit in the foam inserts. In selecting their custom foam tool inserts, SPC customers can choose from soft polyurethane and denser, more rigid polyethylene foam. Options include cross-linked polyethylene, anti-static and military-grade foam with a choice of density and thickness. SPC can help in selecting the best foam-type for a specific application. Once specifications are provided and a layout created, the die-cut process stamps custom-shaped steel rules through the foam. A test sample is provided to ensure expectations are met. Upon approval, SPC processes the order — usually within two weeks with a 25-piece minimum.
PC-based RF spectrum analyzer
Invisible Waves: These PC-based RF spectrum analyzers offer automatic charting of open white space for wireless microphones, in-ear monitors, remote control or IFB. The first in the new series of analyzers is the Invisible Waves model IW1800. The IW1800 covers the frequency span of 100kHz to 1.8GHz for VHF and UHF analysis and extending into the lower gigahertz ranges. Future models will include the Invisible Waves model IW4000, which will cover the span of 100kHz to 4GHz and the IW7000 covering the frequency span of 100kHz to 7GHz. Resolution bandwidth (RBW) in all models is 1kHz with a typical sensitivity of -120dbm.
Bi-amplified active monitor, subwoofer
6010A, 5040A: The 6010A system has been designed for computer sound systems, workstations and other close-proximity listening applications requiring a low-profile monitoring system. Designed as an active loudspeaker, the 6010A contains proprietary drivers, advanced power amplifiers matched to the drivers, active crossover filters and protection circuitry. The 6010A has a die-cast all-aluminum minimum diffraction enclosure, which features large internal volumes, softly curved edges and outstanding mechanical strength. Each monitor features a 3" bass driver along with a 3/4" high-frequency driver loaded into a new Genelec advanced Directivity Control Waveguide. The free-field frequency response is 74Hz - 18kHz. Maximum peak SPL output per pair with music material is 102dB. Bass and treble drivers are each powered by 12W amplifiers.
IP audio endpoints
PYKO: This range of IP audio endpoints and software can build manageable digital audio networks. PYKO devices will either convert analog or digital audio sources to MP3 or PCM IP streams or play such streams from the network or from locally stored MP3 files. Units are housed in robust, rack-mountable casings with balanced I/Os on terminal block connectors and eight GPIOs.
SX7: This unit provides a fixed connection to the 3G cellular network. The SX7 utilizes CDMA and GSM networks and is available through several cellular carriers like AT&T and Sprint. The SX7 can power phones up to five REN through just one phone jack.
Media Manager: By connecting workgroups, enhancing communications, minimizing duplication of efforts and reducing human error, Scheduall assists operational productivity and the financial visibility of a project. Scheduall delivers automated cost controls, the ability to monitor budgets and provides management with tools to make informed decisions about the profitability of their operation. The Scheduall application is a real-time enterprise resource management tool that simplifies the administration of facilities, equipment, asset libraries, personnel scheduling, bidding, billing and payments for the broadcast, media and entertainment industries. Scheduall can interface with back-office accounting, human resource and ERP systems providing cost control and reporting functionality that drives unparalleled business analysis and increased efficiencies.
