Vista Vue: Vista Vue is a software application that gives on-air and production personnel more control and visibility of the Vista Max network operation. The centerpiece of the Harris networking and infrastructure equipment range for the radio broadcast industry, the Vista Max audio management system provides routing and connectivity across the radio broadcast studio to more efficiently share resources while reducing costs associated with traditional audio routing systems. Vista Vue software provides a choice of two user interfaces and flexible access rights that can be defined for each user. Individual and community macros provide one-click routing changes and supplement scheduled and automated macros available through Harris Vista Touch software. Definable interfaces for each user simplify changes to signal routing.

Octopre MkII: Octopre MkII features eight channels of pre-amplification and a built-in 24-bit/96kHz ADAT output, providing an affordable input upgrade for your Pro Tools system, or any digital audio workstation. It combines Saffire Pro pre-amps with digital conversion and JetPLL jitter elimination technology. The digital output allows users to make the most of often-neglected ADAT inputs. It is equally suited to the live environment as a quality mic-pre expansion for any analogue or digital console, or hard disk recorder.
788T-SSD: The premium model of the 788T replaces the 160GB SATA hard drive with a factory-supplied, high-performance 256GB solid-state drive. The addition of the SSD provides several important benefits including: vast internal storage capacity; continuous recordings of more than 60 hours of 24-bit, 8-track audio; increased transfer speed versus a spinning hard drive; increased immunity to shock and temperature extremes; and zero acoustical output.
USB Type A connector
L-com Global Connectivity
USBAFT: The USBAFT is a unique, field terminate USB Type A connector deigned to be used in the field for quick and easy terminations. Separate connection points are provided for all four positions of the connector plus the ground. Terminal block design with set screws provides reliable electrical connections utilizing no special tools. The terminal block area is clearly marked making proper termination virtually foolproof. The USBAFT is panel mountable using 4-40 screws provided.
Voice-to-content messaging: Voice-to-text technology allows listeners to contribute to a radio show's dialog by speaking messages that are then converted into text and either read on air by the hosts and/or posted to the show's website. Listeners can leave short and concise messages without being put on hold or talking to a call screener first. While similar radio call-in shows invite listener participation, the opinions that make it to air are selected to keep the conversation moving forward. With the Spinvox technology, radio hosts are able to sort through these messages quickly and deliver more of the most salient thoughts on the air.

XLR-ISO: XLR-ISO is a new product for inline matching transformers. It is an XLR Female 0dBm at 600 ohms to XLR Male 600 ohms line level matching transformer in a shielded case. It features a compact transformer with XLR male and female ends. The shield is lifted from input to output. It removes hum and passes phantom power to condenser microphones.
