CAP to EAS converter
Cascade Technology Corporation
CAP Link: The CAP Link interface polls a Common Alerting Protocol server and generates locally synthesized standard EAS audio (FSK and attention). It connects directly to a standard router with Internet connectivity and is set up with a standard browser. The output of CAP Link is standard EAS audio. This audio may be applied to the audio input of any FCC certified encoder/decoder to be used as one additional EAS audio source. It requires no operator attention after it has been installed. The link to the CAP server can be manually confirmed at any time. If the primary CAP server link fails CAP Link will automatically attempt to connect with alternate servers as defined at setup, and can automatically send an e-mail reporting the problem. It supports EAN as well as EAS. All audio file chunks are assembled and output as quality balanced or unbalanced audio. CAP Link has three options: ESM, OSM and Desktop.
Direct connect dc power
VDC and VDC-XE: The VDC systems feature higher power and more energy storage in a smaller footprint than VYCON's previous generation system. Utilizing VYCON's patented flywheel technology, the VDC unit provides up to 220kW of dc power while the VDC-XE (Xtended Energy) model supplies up to 300kW of dc power within a single cabinet. For longer run times and higher power capacities, the VDC models can be easily paralleled without needing a special communications link. For extended power outages, the VDC will seamlessly provide enough ride-through protection to transfer to a standby engine generator for a continuous power system.
2RU filler plate
KD-RF1U, KD-RF2U: The KD-RF1U and KD-RF2U filler plates create the best environment for housing your A/V components. Key Digital's plates enable a clean, professional rack setup, and allow your rack fan to produce the optimal amount of circulation within the rack.
Digital to analog direct box
USB-DI: ARX has updated its USB-DI digital-to-analog direct box. The transformer-isolated dual-channel USB audio to balanced XLR output DI box is a plug-and-lay digital-to-analog pro audio interface. It removes the need to use any existing sound card outputs with their inherent noisy environment and problematic grounding. It features full transformer balanced output isolation to eliminate earth loops/ground hum and other extraneous interaction noise and distortion.
Music scheduling software
G Selector Version 3.12: G Selector 3.12 adds several new enhancements to the first patented goal scheduler including: multiple database access, hour and depth search, interactive history maps and user defined support in the web service. You can now add additional multi-station databases to your system via data exchange or the restore function. All history maps in G Selector now provide access to the editor when double-clicking a date and time cell.
