Point Source Audio unveiled its CO2-8WD Headset Microphone with Dual Elements. Various demos were at the show, and the product was featured by rAVePubs. The CO2 Confidence Collection all have dual elements, each measuring a tiny 3mm, that offer built-in redundancy and comes in three styles: headset, lavalier, and in Point Source Audio’s patented EMBRACE™ embodiment. The CO2 dual elements maintain two of the company’s signature features: IP 57 waterproof rating (rated against water, sweat and makeup), and the “unbreakable” headset boom bendable up to 360° to bolster durability.
Stewart Audio introduced the FLX320-1-CV-D, a single channel, 70V/100V, 1/2 rack amplifier delivering 320W audio power with built in DSP, RS232 control and remote volume control. The FLX (pronounced FLEX) Series of amplifiers is the most versatile 1/2 rack amplifier Stewart has ever produced. The FLX320-1-CV-D provides 320 watts into a 4 Ohm load. At the heart of the amplifier is a robust, internal, full-function DSP designed to solve a multitude of your audio problems in just one enclosure. The DSP includes a full cross-point mixer, EQ, filters, limiters and much more. A USB port makes programming simple, fast and repeatable for large installations. The RVC and RS232 control allow volume control from a wide range of devices. In addition, the Dante™ network capability provides four network input audio channels and four network output audio channels. You won't find a more flexible combination of power output and processing in a comparable package on the market today.
VUE arrived at InfoComm with a number of new speaker solutions with its e-Class family of products, including Dante integration, QSC Q-Sys integration options, and Dante enabled IP audio distribution. Like their larger siblings, e-Class benefits from VUE's advanced technologies, including beryllium high-frequency components, purpose-engineered cone frequency drivers with oversized voice coils and powerful neodymium circuits, as well as precision crossover networks that work hand-in-hand with the “HAL-like” DSP inside the VUEDrive systems engines. All of this is kept inside durable, die-cast aluminum enclosures that are equal parts stylish and functional. The e-Class subwoofer is equally impressive, thanks to our patent-pending Active Compliance Management (ACM) technology, which enables extended response and sound pressure levels equal to or greater than larger systems that rely on more conventional vented designs. Pulling it all together is the VUEDrive V242 Systems Engine, which empowers e-Class systems with Dante networking, sophisticated DSP and full network remote control via SystemVUE software on iOS, Mac OS, and Windows.
Visionary Solutions brought its highly anticipated PacketAV Duet Wallplate Encoder to the show. The PacketAV Duet Wallplate Encoder provides powerful 4K UHD Video and Dante/AES67 Audio encoding over Gigabit Ethernet in a convenient wallplate form-factor. It can be easily mounted in a wall, tabletop, lectern, or floor box using a standard 2-gang US or UK back box, and connected to power (standard POE) and Ethernet using only a single category cable. Visionary’s PackeTV® and PacketAV® products can be deployed on any industry standard IP network. They can be used on existing enterprise IP networks or a physically separate parallel network [private network] to offload traffic, using the same network protocols, methods, and devices but without intermingling of video traffic with data or voice; with equal ease of installation.
