ISE 2017: Products on show from A to D

What's new from Alcons Audio, beyerdynamic, Bose, Cloud Electronics and d&b

Trade show Integrated Systems Europe 2017 kicks off its 13th year with a bigger show floor and a range of exhibitors…

ISE visitors can enjoy a ‘pro-ribbon immersive experience’, aimed at the residential market, with Alcons Audio showcasing its high-end, C-series home cinema systems through a joint collaboration with Barco Residential, DreamScreen and Trinnov.

To support Alcons’ claim of “bringing HiFi at concert sound pressure levels” in any size application, the experience is set up in an acoustically-optimised listening room on their stand, where visitors can experience a 11.1.8 channel pro-ribbon surround system.

Only recently unveiled, the TG 500 wireless system from beyerdynamic is being featured at ISE. A successor to the Opus 600 series, and designed for smaller stages, theatre productions, speeches or presentations, the new system is said to focus on modern features and to be usable licence-free almost all over the world depending on the frequency band selected.

The beyerdynamic TG 500 system is available in five sets, each of which contains an individual receiver and two removable antennas. The TG 550 Vocal Set is supplied with the dynamic TG 500 H-D handheld transmitter with a TG V50 capsule (dynamic capsule, cardioid) and is claimed to be perfect for singing, whereas the TG 556 Vocal Set comes with a TG 500 H-C handheld transmitter with a TG V56 capsule (condenser capsule, cardioid), making it appropriate for presentations.

The ControlSpace EX audio conferencing system marks Bose Professional’s entry into the audio conferencing market. The solution includes the EX-1280C conference processor and three under-table Dante endpoints for streamlined integration. ControlSpace EX simplifies design and installation for large meeting rooms by offering direct Dante microphone connectivity, analogue-to-Dante mic conversion, all common telephony interfaces (VoIP, PSTN, USB and analogue), and time-saving algorithms.

Cloud Electronics will show two new models of the MA40 Mini Amplifier series at ISE, shipping immediately post exhibition. Originally shown as development prototypes for the first time at ISE 2016 the new Cloud MA40F and MA40T Mini Amplifiers are squarely aimed at de-centralised solutions and where requirements exist for adding additional audio zones to legacy installations.

The new MA40F Mini Amplifier features a mono 40W output , two stereo line inputs with individual input gain, an additional 70V/100V line input, a paging microphone input with independent EQ, music EQ, music mute (for simple fire alarm connection) and a facility port allowing Cloud’s LM-2 wall input module and Cloud’s new BT-1F Bluetooth wireless audio module to be connected easily. The MA40T offers identical features to the MA40 but provides 100V output (25V/70V/100V) in place of the low-impedance output. The MA40F and MA40T are the first in a line of four MA40 mini amplifier models, RS-232 / Ethernet and Remote Level functionality being added to the four model line-up.

d&b will launch an amplifier plug-in for the Peavey MediaMatrix NION DSP and nControl PC. MediaMatrix is a networked DSP and control system that is scalable, efficient and exactly tailored to the needs of the user. Integration with MediaMatrix allows system designers to achieve high performance d&b sound quality in installation applications that require detailed, customised remote control features. The complete system is designed and managed via PC with the MediaMatrix NWare software, and then accessed and controlled wirelessly with any smart device supporting HTML5 via the Kiosk2Go remote control platform. The system can also be controlled using wall panels, touch screen devices and GPIOs.

The new d&b amplifier plug-in for MediaMatrix provides control parameters to adjust the mute status, levels, power On/Off, and alter the AmpPreset. This enables the complete system to be configured as a highly intelligible system for speech reproduction, and, via a simple button, reconfigured for full program material. Critical status information can be monitored, ensuring the same is suitable as a PA-VA system in an emergency situation. MediaMatrix logs all audio connections to amplifiers, and the operating state of connected loudspeakers.
