Clark Wire and Cable
Audio snake cable: This is a plenum grade, 12-channel audio snake cable. It is manufactured with the company's quick-strip method, which means the foil and jacket are easily removed as one unit when stripped. Each pair is color-coded.
Two-way compact loudspeaker
Control 1 Pro: With monitor-grade high- and low-frequency drivers, this speaker's updated crossover network design provides steeper crossover slopes for improved consistency throughout the listening area. Sonic Guard overload protection has been enhanced to provide better full-range protection of the transducers and network against power surges from the amplifier. The speaker's enclosure houses magnetically shielded transducers, making it well suited for use with magnetically sensitive equipment. The speaker is available in black or white finishes.
Network audio operating system
Visiblu: Visiblu combines audio processing and networking technologies by unifying the Ethersound protocol with audio IP streaming into an engine that runs under Windows and Linux. The system allows users to develop audio and data routing, transporting, encoding and processing systems across local facilities and wide areas. The system features bi-directional Digipro audio IP transport management with low latency forward error correction; automatic clock drift management; sample rate conversion; and stream resychronization. The system supports a wide range of audio formats such as PCM linear, and MPEG 2 and MPEG 3 encoding and decoding.
Right-angle phone plugs
PRX series: The PRX series expands the PX series of ¼" phone plugs with a right-angle version. The new plugs incorporate a diecast shell in a slim design with a compact barrel. The plug's rivetless one-piece tip contact prevents hook-up in a socket or break-off at the tip. Other features include improved strain relief for reliable cable retention; nickel or gold plating for durability and conductivity; and mono and stereo plugs for cable assemblers.
Automatic mixing controllers
Dan Dugan Sound Design
Model E: This mixing system fits eight channels into a half-width 1RU package. Two Model E units can be mounted side-by-side in one rack space. The unit connects in two ways: to a mixing board's insert jacks with standard TRS cables, or through an eight-channel ADAT optical interface. When analog I/O is used, the ADAT connectors can link multiple units up to 64 channels. Mute and bypass buttons are provided for each channel. An internal Web server downloads a Java applet that provides real-time control and monitoring of the controller from the user's browser. Power is 9 to 24Vdc, either polarity, or 9 to 18Vac.
Telephone hybrid, screener system
Thum + Mahr/Yellowtec
Yellowtec B-line: B-line combines a POTS and ISDN telephone hybrid with call screener for use in talk shows. The audio connections to the mixing console or audio workstation are equipped with balanced studio level and AES/EBU interfaces. The integrated digital signal processing includes echo cancellation, AGC and expander. Plugging in a telephone handset allows off-air screening. In ISDN mode, two callers can be managed simultaneously and switched to air independently. Features include GPI/O with programmable relays and TTL inputs and outputs, a DTMF option to initiate calls, sending DTMF tones over existing connections or decoding incoming DTMF tones as well as an RS-232 interface for external control by a PC running Talkmaster software, or for connection of the B-line keypad.

FMI-T series: This tube transmitter for HD Radio offers power levels for low-level combined operations. The FMI T Series consists of three models (FMI 17T, FMI 21T and FMI 25T) with up to 25kW FM+HD Radio operation. All models include BE's FXI FM+HD Radio exciter. This series includes a folded half-wave cavity that eliminates troublesome and unreliable DC plate-blocking capacitors and all sliding RF contacts.
Prize inventory software
Prophet Systems Innovations
Prize Watch: Prize Watch creates station contests, tracks prize inventory and is a central location for winners and their electronic confirmation signatures.
Audio restoration software
Magix Cleaning Lab 11: This software restores music in just a few seconds. One-click functionality restores and digitizes music, recovering and remastering old music from a record, CD, MP3, LP and tape collections and converting them into music files with surround sound effects. Add more detail and layers with 40 studio effects, including surround sound, surround reverb, transition effects and advanced MP3 surround sound. Audio ID technology makes recognizing songs easy by automatically assigning title, artist and album information to tracks so you don't have to enter the names manually.
Radial analysis software
Au Contraire Software
AM Proof: With this software measurements are graphically analyzed in the GUI environment and finished, ready-to-file field strength graphs and tabulations are produced on the system printer. Radial measurement data is entered from field notes for reference and directional patterns. The reference proof can be non-directional, making the program useful for full or partial proofs. A log-log graph is produced wherein the user can graphically analyze the measurements, adjusting the inverse distance line for the best fit. Experiment with conductivity curves in the GUI environment and then print ready-to-file exhibits.
Remote Dashboard v1.2: The Remote Dashboard software v1.2 is now available for M2.2 HD Radio modulation monitors. When used with the M2.2's Ethernet interface, the Windows XP application provides remote control and monitoring of AM and FM HD Radio broadcasts as well as alarm capabilities. The application allows a remote M2.2 user to simultaneously monitor HD Radio program availability and digital audio presence for HD-1 and all multicast HD-2 through HD-8 broadcasts, along with analog audio presence, analog delay bit and RF carrier signal strength. The complete HD Radio PAD and SIS data package including station descriptions and program song title, artist, album, genre and comments, can also be simultaneously displayed, each in its own window.
Wireless mic system
200, 300 series: The new 200 and 300 Series are complete wireless system packages. The WS-200 vocal system includes a hand-held dynamic microphone and receiver. The WS-300 presentation system comes with an omni-directional condenser lapel microphone with bodypack transmitter and receiver. System features include 10 hours of operation from a single 9V battery and four switchable UHF frequencies.
FM bandpass filter
955 series: This RF filter for IBOC and low power analog FM applications protects from undesirable cross-modulation products and can also be configured as a branch combiner for combining two or three analog or IBOC transmitters into one antenna. The filters are rated at 3kW average power and can be tuned for any FM operating channel between 88MHz and 108MHz. The filter cavities are sized to provide low insertion loss resulting in minimal temperature rise and reduced transmitter power loss. The individual cavities are loop coupled so that each filter bank can be optimized for the particular application required and can be retuned in the field if necessary.
Anthology II: Anthology II features 15 plug-ins. Included are two 48-bit double precision vintage equalizers: EQ45 and EQ65. Equalizing capabilities are expanded with the EQ45. The EQ65 Filter Set recreates the sound and function of the vintage analog filter set. Two new configurable channel strips provide tracking tools: E-channel and Ultra-channel. E-channel is a channel strip with a configurable signal path. Ultra-channel offers users a more comprehensive channel strip. Mic phase alignment is easier with the Precision Time Align plug-in, and the Quadravox plug-in features four voices of diatonic Harmonizer pitch shifting. Anthology II also features the nine plug-ins that comprised the original Anthology bundle.
