New Products - Jan 2010
P-2400 IT: The flagship product of Furman's new Prestige Series, the P-2400 IT is a 20A rack-mountable symmetrically balanced power conditioner, providing ac noise reduction and 100 percent isolation from the power grid for the lowest noise floor possible. It features more than 80dB of common-mode and more than 50dB of differential-mode noise reduction for recording, mastering and broadcast studios. The P-2400 IT provides Furman's SMP/LiFT/EVS Technologies for professional-level protection and linear noise filtration, as well as a switchable front-panel digital voltmeter/ammeter with color-coded voltage range indicator for comprehensive power monitoring, and a front-panel USB charger for personal media devices and cell phones.
Netia Digital Audio
Media Logging: The Media Logging range meets the increased worldwide demand for radio monitoring systems by carrying out the capture, indexing, transcoding and distribution of audio. Broadcasters use Media Logging for continuous capture of audio files, 24 hours a day. Each file is examined individually, segmented and completed with the necessary associated metadata -- in an automatic or semi-automatic mode -- through the use of sophisticated new speech-to-text and image recognition techniques.
Analog mixer line
M-164 Series: The M-164 is a 16-channel mixer with six mic inputs, great-sounding EQ and a built-in meter bridge. It adds digital effects like reverb, delay and chorus without adding external processing. The M-164UF is the first compact mixer with a built-in USB 2.0 to deliver all 16 outputs to a computer for live or studio recording.
Encore Series: The Encore 100, 200 and 300 models are designed for any live application, from the rehearsal space and coffee shop to the auditorium and stadium. The 100 is a studio-grade dynamic microphone. The 200 adds Blue's Active Dynamic circuitry and output transformer, coupling the ruggedness and high SPL handling of a dynamic mic with the consistency and low noise of a phantom powered mic. The 300 is the flagship of the series and offers vocalists uncompromised performance featuring a hand-selected Blue Aria condenser capsule with a matched pre-amp and phantom power circuit, a tuned enclosure, and Blue's proprietary reinforced chassis, which controls airflow around the capsule for unparalleled vocal control and a natural, open sound, no matter how the artist holds the microphone.
Kathrein 3024: With measuring capability from 1W to 1mW, the 3024 presents an ideal upgrade for existing directional coupler-based RF measuring transmitter power monitors, providing PC and Internet access and SNMP network connectivity. It will work with most existing directional couplers, eliminating the need to install new line sections. Internal user-programmable software calculates the display power depending on the probe input, offset, gain and the given value of the directional coupler. Since 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. Multiple combinations of directional couplers and compensated probes produce a matrix that will give readings with +/-5 percent accuracy. Both digital and optocoupler ports provide 16 software-assignable relay-type contact closure outputs for alerts.
