Networked audio system
E-6: The E-6 Surface, the E-series Studio Satellite and the E-series Network Switch combine to create a networked audio system. Each studio operates independently yet can share all the sources and mixes through the E-series Network. Switch without traffic limitations, audio latency or machine control delays. The E-6 Surface features event recall, bus-minus and mix-minus and four aux mixes -- all with dedicated talkback systems. The system also features four monitor outputs and standard EQ, dynamics, panning and mic processing on all channels. It supports multiple arrays of programmable input channel and master panel switches for customized functions.
Audio coding algorithm
Apt-x Live: Apt-x Live enables the streaming of digital audio in real time over a wireless link. Designed for live performance situations, this audio algorithm offers a delay under 2ms.
Lighted switching module
Mic Pro: LED lighted "mic on" and "mic off" buttons enable and disable the mic channels on this module. More than one mic input can be controlled simultaneously. Monitor speaker muting is also controlled via the relay pack, and on-air or recording signs are controlled by a solid-state relay pack. The module is attached to the mixing board with the supplied hook and loop fastener system or double-sided tape to the production board.
Software for Windows
Universal Remote Control: The program automatically detects each connected CDQ Prima, Prima LT, Prima LT Plus, Team or Super Link and displays a picture of the unit on the screen. Click any function or digital interface module to fully configure each module. The program runs on any Windows-based PC and connects via serial port or telnet over IP (Team and Super Link only). Internal connections can be made or changed easily. Commands can be entered manually, and the unit's responses can be viewed.
SCM20SL: The ATC Passive 20 features the same woofer and tweeter as the active SCM20ASL and are are housed in a conventional black box. The low-frequency section is a hybrid design incorporating a 150mm bass cone with a grafted 75mm soft dome for mid-range assist. The woofer magnet assembly reduces third harmonic distortion to help reveal mistakes and details.
Red-white beacon: A LED medium-intensity red-white flashing beacon, this light is designed to overcome vibration and extreme weather conditions. It is a 20,000 candela flashing white light combined with a 2,000 candela steady or flashing red LED obstruction light. Operating temperatures range from -55 to +55°C and it can withstand conditions including direct sunlight, wind blown rain, high wind speeds, high humidity and salt fog.
CD, DVD cleaning fluid
Kenwash: This cleaning solvent removes smudges, dirt, fingerprints and other types of contaminants from discs. The cleaner works with all manual and automatic disc cleaning systems. It works with CDs and DVDs, including CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and double-sided discs.
Annuncicom 100: This intercom can be deployed over a standard IP or Ethernet network infrastructure to any number of locations. It can connect directly to a PC or function autonomously with other Barix products. The device can connect to one of eight preset radio stations. It can also connect to an unlimited number of stations in a point-to-multipoint configuration. Target stations can be addressed over a standard Web browser, contact input or a serial interface. The unit is equipped with an Ethernet interface and communicates over existing TCP/IP networks. All network-connected devices can be controlled from a single central command station. Each device comes with its own integrated Web server that allows it to be configured over a standard Web browser.
In-line network tester
Net Tool Series II: This system shows the actual traffic between the network and end devices such as PCs, VoIP phones, access points, printers and copiers. In-line testing allows identification of device and network configurations and performance issues, reducing troubleshooting time. Users can verify link readiness during pre-deployment planning, as well as troubleshoot problems on active networks by monitoring real-time VoIP traffic. Net Tool can negotiate with Ethernet-based power-sourcing equipment, acting as a powered device and displaying voltage and current delivered over the cabling.
FTW171, FTW172: The 171 provides an inexpensive method of monitoring a facility. The 172 includes additional features that allow the user to gather more detailed information through Flash Technology's proprietary Eagle system. The units provide real-time data, and can monitor and manage non-IT-based equipment such as HVAC units, back-up generators, security access, exterior lighting and cooling systems.
AS428: This stereo audio switcher can be used as two 4x1 stereo switchers or as an 8x1 (in a single rack space) with two identical outputs. Designed to add inputs and additional monitoring capability for the NM-250 MKII Newsroom Mixer, the switcher can be used anywhere a locally controlled stereo switcher is required. Use the device's A/B function at the transmitter site. The switcher features unity gain and balanced operation.
MXL Model 604: A cardioid condenser pressure gradient microphone with an interchangeable omni-directional capsule, the MXL 604 features a -10dB attenuation switch that enables the microphone to better handle high sound pressure levels. The mic offers a selectable low frequency roll-off capability to compensate for proximity effect or to eliminate wind noise during outdoor recording. Its transformerless design provides a solid bottom and an open top end sound. The microphone is internally wired with Mogami cable. The mic features a satin silver finish with etched engravings.
IP audio system
Digital Juke Box
Remoteware VoIP: This software enables radio stations to broadcast live remotes from any location with any type of Internet connection as long as there is 10kb bandwidth. Features include 100ms delay, works with any Internet connection, no port forwarding, and a hole punching technology to get past firewalls. Use this system in a laptop with a microphone for a live remote. The software is full duplex and users can talk from studio to remote location.
Portable FM and SCA receiver
Mid-Atlantic RF Systems
BSC98-20-D: This FM/SCA receiver receives pre-delay audio to communicate with and queue talent in the field without the eight-second delay inherent in the digital FM broadcast. The receiver is a TCXO-referenced phase lock loop-controlled receiver that operates in the FM band. It demodulates the main channel audio as well as the standard 67kHz or 92kHz subcarrier audio. The front panel also provides connections for a headset jack for monitoring the received signal. The rear panel features connectors for antennas, dc power and audio line output, which is not gain controlled.
