2009 NAB Show New Products
On-Air 2500 Modulo: This console has separate modules for fader bays and master section, along with a rack-mountable mainframe that houses the power supply and host processing. These modules can be recessed, all cables integrated within the furniture and the mainframe hidden appropriately. The fader strips include a graphical OLED 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. 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 operation of the console stress-free.
3.5mm solderless connectors
Max Blox CA-MX35M, CA-MX35: Soldering 3.5mm stereo cable mount connectors is solved with the patent-pending CA-MX35M. It is a 3.5mm stereo cable mount male connector that terminates with just a screwdriver and is ideal for use in applications where computer audio or IR control are used. The CA-MX35M consists of a 3.5mm stereo plug with an attached screw terminal block, along with a two-piece, snap-together hood. The rugged connector allows installers to terminate a 3.5mm stereo cable mount plug without the use of a soldering iron, saving both time and money.
Multi-length power cords
Middle Atlantic Products
Signal Safe: With these cable options, installers can replace longer standard power cables to eliminate unnecessary cable slack in racks. The cords are now color-coded with a bold blue or red stripe to facilitate circuit identification. All power cords minimize ac magnetic fields, cutting field strength by more than 80 percent. The power cords are available in six lengths from 6" to 48" and sold in packs of 20. They also feature straight or right and left angled plugs to provide more options.
Sharp tuned IBOC mask filter
FM Mask Filter: These sharp-tuned filters allow operation of simulcast analog and digital IBOC system at the higher -10dBc power level without spectral re-growth that exceeds FCC FM Mask requirements. The new filters are based on ERI's 970 and 973 Series FM Filter Cavities and are configured as constant impedance filters with the addition of non-adjacent coupling loops that allow the filters to maintain a very sharply tuned pass band. The filter sets can be configured to handle power level up to 60kW analog, plus 6kW digital. The sets are temperature compensated and can be configured for floor mounting or installed in vertical racks.
