SHOW PREVIEW ISE 2014 The latest addition to the 4000

Series of loudspeakers, designed for the AV install market, will be on show at the Genelec stand. The active loudspeakers are suited to music playback and speech amplification projects, which makes them a strong choice for critical commercial installations. The speakers’ Directivity Control

Waveguide provides broad and flat coverage for precise imaging in all environments, while Practical Room Response Controls optimise the loudspeaker’s tonal characteristics for any environment. Once installed, overload protection ensures reliability and 12V contact closure allows for seamless integration with any in-house automation or AV control system. Lawo has integrated D’accord into

its JADE software tool and EDIT editing software. JADE is a powerful software tool for PC-based audio and broadcast production, which acts as a mediator between audio hardware and software, allowing the use of multiple audio interfaces for one or multiple audio applications without restrictions. The release of JADE 1.0.2 adds a number of new features, including ASIO direct monitoring support; this allows low-latency monitoring connections for ASIO devices,

determine the spectrum of audio devices, measuring the frequency response as well as the intrinsic noise spectrum of an audio device. The latest V2.60 release of XL2

Analyzer firmware enables on-site measurement of all commonly used noise curves according to ANSI and ISO standards. It determines the acoustic noise spectrum of a room and immediately displays the results, together with the reference curves, according to the standard selected by the operator. Rane will highlight the fact that

users can now control its HAL DSP system with any device, anytime, anywhere. On show at ISE are the latest version of HAL (HAL4) and Rane’s EXP7x device. Featured in the box, and now on

Rane’s website, is Halogen 4.0 software, which adds support for the Web Controls feature in any HAL, as well as a firmware update to existing HAL

Also new

is the CPX-AVB expansion card, which allows its Artist 1100 series Digital Matrix Intercom control panels to interface with AVB (Audio Video Bridging) networks, allowing all of the panel’s ports to be accessed from across the entire AVB network. It is a dedicated card that converts

centrally managed in

JADE environments. Furthermore, it adds up to four independent WDM driver instances, enabling separated audio input and output connections for applications that rely on Windows audio driver interfaces. In addition, a limited access mode

now permits hiding the access to the configuration for easy and failsafe end-user operation. Designed for the calibration and

verification of cinema sound systems, the XL2 Cinema Meter from NTi Audio is being showcased by the company at ISE. Taking NTi Audio’s XL2 acoustic and audio analyser and extending its capability with the cinema option, an interactive assistant guides the cinema engineer through dedicated measurement scripts for what the company describes as intuitive management of audio performance requirements. With the introduction of dBu, dBV

and volt measurement units, the handheld XL2 Analyzer is now able to

devices that enables customisable web pages to be created within Halogen. Simply run the custom page(s) on any smartphone, tablet or computer’s web browser; no iTunes store or app installs are required. Riedel will be showing new

universal video I/O cards for its MediorNet Modular real-time network. Supporting a variety of small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, the MediorNet MN-C- OPT-HDMI and MN-HDO-4IO cards enable the flexible configuration of MediorNet systems for bidirectional transport of analogue composite video, HDMI, DVI, and optical or coaxial SDI signals. Depending on the SFP transceivers installed, the cards can provide a combination of either four HD (1.5G) or two 1080p (3G) bidirectional video signals or analogue video, HDMI, DVI, or optical SDI video I/O. The HDMI ports employ self-locking mini HDMI connectors.

two Artist ports to the AVB network and vice versa. To further enable signal integration, Riedel offers a comprehensive suite of AVB-enabled interfaces for its Artist intercom platform. Besides the existing Connect AVB X8 panel interface, the Connect AVB C8 offers eight AES connections on BNC. The device supports both bidirectional AES for intercom panels and unidirectional transport for broadcast AES. The Connect AVB A8 provides eight analogue inputs and outputs on RJ45 connectors. Riedel’s AVB Manager offers full AVB network management and features system-wide control of all AVB components. One of the first Indian companies to enter the world of reference-grade pro audio, Sonodyne is showcasing its Opus speakers, which merge the worlds of digital content and analogue electro-acoustics. Product highlights include: a Kevlar

cone woofer and midrange to minimise cone breakup and distortion; a Kevlar cone midrange and silk dome tweeter in waveguide for controlled dispersion; and transparency in critical mid, upper mid band, and soundstaging. Opus, says Sonodyne, also features DSP-enabled crossover for smooth on and off axis response, a Class AB power amplifier with MOSFET output stage for exceptional dynamics, high-grade SMD components used in compact two-layer PCB for reduced noise, an aluminium/MDF rigid enclosure to minimise vibrations, and software tuned ports for maximum LF extension. The new Stealth Acoustics SA2400 dual-channel amplifier with

built-in DSP is claimed to offer “maximum ease and flexibility of powering and tuning Stealth speakers or other speaker systems”. Rated at more than 450W RMS per channel, the SA2400 uses Stealth’s Class A/B output stage coupled to a traditional high-current power supply for professional output and long-term reliability.

It also marks the debut of the newly designed Stealth Signal Management System (SSMS), which allows for complete per-channel programming of advanced DSP features including: 11 bands of fully parametric EQ; high/low pass filters with variable slopes; fully programmable limiters; and delay and phase controls. All SSMS functions can be

programmed from the front panel, or via Stealth’s free SSMS software via USB connection to the amplifier. Several new products for the installation market are making their debut at the Yamaha Music Europe GmbH stand. Among other items, Yamaha is adding to its Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) series with EN54-24 certified versions of the VXC and VXS loudspeaker ranges, which are specifically designed for use in PA/VA voice alarm systems. At the show, Yamaha is

demonstrating its full CIS series, including all VXC and VXS loudspeakers, XMV multichannel amplifiers, MTX matrix processors and DCP controllers.

Sonodyne’s Opus speakers will be at ISE 2014
