Las Vegas, NV (June 20, 2008)--JBL Professional has introduced the Control 2P Compact Powered Reference Monitor at InfoComm 08. The Control 2P is a 5-inch two-way powered stereo system with features required for professional broadcast and desktop production applications.
The Control 2P is based on the platform of its predecessor, the Control 1 Pro, utilizing the same transducers and crossover, while incorporating internal amplification and features for professional audio production and installation. The system includes two speakers, one of which incorporates power amplification and user controls for itself and the connected passive speaker. Snap-on pedestals are included to optimize the listening angle for desktop production applications.
"The development of the Control 2P is JBL's response to the demand for a compact, accurate system in broadcast, desktop audio production and commercial install applications," said Peter Chaikin, Director of Marketing, Recording & Broadcast, JBL Professional. "Affordable computer-based desktop audio/video production is driving the need for an affordable yet accurate reference monitor. Additionally, broadcasters have an ongoing need for a compact, high-quality professional monitor that will perform reliably in fixed and mobile systems. And systems integrators need a compact high-fidelity system for use in environments such as small conference rooms and commercial spaces."
