2010 NAB Extra!
SRH840, SRH440, and SRH240: The SRH840, SRH440, and SRH240 join Shure's lineup of professional and home recording equipment. These headphones achieve a balance between comfort, durability, and rich lows, warm mids and crisp highs. Each have a unique sound signature and feature closed-back, circumaural design, which maximizes comfort during extended wear.
Portable production system
TriCaster, TriCaster Interface: In one lightweight, portable system (small enough to fit in a backpack), TriCaster provides all the tools, including live virtual sets on select models, required to produce, live stream, broadcast and project a show. Its small footprint makes it possible to broadcast from anywhere and it is flexible enough to allow you to deliver live productions on your own or with a team.
Audio encoding for Windows
Omnia A/XE: The Omnia A/XE blends power with advanced encoding capabilities. It can process audio for bit rate-reduced and linear applications. It runs as a background service, can be fully-managed and configured remotely with a Web browser, and can process and encode multiple streams in various formats simultaneously. A/XE can be run on most off-the-shelf computers; the minimum requirements are Windows XP or later, 521MB RAM, 20MB free hard-drive space and a network card. It can encode directly to MP3 or AAC as well as feed a Shoutcast-style or Windows Media Server in the MP3 format, or feed Adobe Media server an AAC stream. It can also be paired with an existing Windows Media, Real, MPG Pro or MP3 streaming encoder.
APxUpdates: Since the beginning of 2010, Audio Precision has been shipping the BW52 ultra-high-bandwidth 1MHz FFT option for the AP¡Á525 family of audio analyzers, which delivers high bandwidth (dc to 1MHz), one million points, and 24-bit resolution when measuring out-of-band noise in Class-D amps, sigma-delta converters and other modern audio devices, easily surpassing the maximum FFT bandwidth offered by competing analyzers (usually topping out at 250kHz). More recently, the v2.5 software update for APx has added custom reporting options, WAV file analysis, and the ability to stream Dolby's TrueHD audio compression format through the APx HDMI option.
Silence monitor/audio switcher
Audio Sentinel: The Audio Sentinel is a Web-enabled two-channel stereo silence monitor combined with a transparent, integrated audio switcher. It is designed to monitor two balanced or unbalanced independent stereo analog audio sources and switch to a back-up analog audio source when silence is detected on either or both channels. It may also be configured for independent dual-stereo non-switching applications. The Audio Sentinel can be controlled and monitored locally and/or remotely over any IP network, including private networks, IP-based industrial control networks, and the Internet. Users can operate the product using a Web browser or Web-enabled mobile device. E-mail notification may be configured to alert up to four recipients when alarms are detected. The user may also enable a sound effect to play on a PC speaker when an alarm is generated.
