2010 NAB Extra!
IP88e WheatNet-IP application
Mic Blade: The IP88e Wheatnet-IP Mic Blade features eight built-in mic preamps with phantom power, eight analog output channels and 12 universal logic (GPI) ports. Mic audio is available anywhere in the Wheatnet-IP system. Analog outputs can access any system source, and are typically used for studio headphone and speaker feeds.
Automation mobile application
iDAD: iDAD is a companion mobile application for the Enco DAD and Presenter audio automation studio systems. The initial release is targeted at the iPhone and the new iPad tablet computing device from Apple. It will feature the ability for news reporters and announcers to record, trim and tail, label and then send audio from the mobile device directly to their DAD or Presenter automation systems for timely playback. iDAD will also feature a remote control function which will allow control of the DAD or Presenter system from the mobile device using a simple array of buttons representing various user definable functions.
IP-Intercom: Axia's IP-Intercom system debuts with a full family of intercom equipment that includes a variety of rackmount stations, as well as drop-in modules for Axia Element 2.0 mixing consoles ¡ª providing a unique interconnection between intercom and console that allows any audio from any station in the broadcast facility to be immediately brought to air. IP-Intercom stations connect to the studio network with a single CAT-5 connection. Its features include auto-answer and hands-free operation, bright, sharp OLED displays for maximum visibility, built-in speakers and front-and-rear-panel mic connections, and drop-in modules that integrate into Axia consoles. The Advanced Echo Cancellation (AEC) technology, licensed from the Fraunhofer Institute, effectively suppresses acoustic feedback generated between open mics and speakers, producing clear, feedback-free audio.
Kathrein 3024: With measuring capability from 1W to 1MW, the 3024 can be used with most existing directional coupler-based RF measuring transmitter power monitors to provide PC and Internet access and SNMP network connectivity. Internal user-programmable software calculates the display power depending on the probe input, offset, gain and the given value of the directional coupler. Because the setup for each probe in the system is unique, it will even work with different brands of directional couplers. The working end of the rack-mounted 19" 3024 is in the rear, where up to eight probes can be connected for simultaneous power measurements.
RDL (Radio Design Labs)
EZ-MPA1; EZ-MPA2: The EZ-MPA1 is a microphone preamplifier with front-panel volume control and audio level metering. A front-panel switch engages an audio compressor to control overloads and clipping during high-level audio bursts or peaks. Dynamic or condenser microphones are both supported with rear-panel switchable phantom voltage. The preamplified mic signal feeds both channels of the line output on RCA or mini jacks. LED VU metering facilitates easy level adjustment.
