REVConnect Improves AV Project Reliability, Ease and Versatility

Picking the right category cable and connectivity for your AV application isn’t always as straightforward as it should be. How do you wade through your choices and pick the right one?

It helps to think about your application and the AV performance you need:

· Will this cabling/connectivity support a mission-critical AV application? What happens if the AV systems connected to it go down due to cable or connectivity failure?

· Are high levels of PoE involved in this application? Will the system support large displays and LED lighting?

· Is there “noise” present (EMI or RFI interference from nearby machinery, equipment, power cables, ballasts, etc.)?

· Are you facing a difficult installation environment (tight bends, high levels of pulling force, etc.)?

· Will channel lengths extend beyond 100 m? Will devices be more than 100 m away from a switch?

Belden’s REVConnect 10GXS System supports high-density, high-bandwidth AV applications and can exceed 100 m channel requirements in certain applications (up to 185 m).

It features insertion loss performance with 8% headroom, offering industry-leading Category 6A system guaranteed performance parameters: insertion loss, NEXT, ACRF and PSAACRF. This level of performance is vital for high-end AV applications.

To manage cable heat transfer, it incorporates EquiBlock™ Barrier Technology for uniform heat flow dissipation while maintaining insertion loss performance.

The REVConnect 10GXS System also includes connectivity components with Belden’s innovative, game-changing REVConnect Connectivity, which supports reliable, easy terminations using a single method for Category 5e, 6 and 6A RJ45 connections and components. REVConnect reduces rework and retesting, is simple for entry-level technicians to learn quickly and adapts to emerging applications and IoT devices.

Theater Seating for some Very Special People Firefighters Move Into New Fire Station

 

 

 

 

 

A very old fire station, much in need of a renovation, recently opened for business after breaking ground in 2018. As we all know firefighters put their lives in danger most every day. When they do get a break, they need to really kick back and relax. FORTRESS was happy to provide these heros with some really comfortable chairs. The new building’s community space houses a 20-seat theater. Some of these Matinees have custom modified back heights to accommodate everyone’s comfort level.

GoldenEar Technology Invisa Home Theater Reference 7000

The Invisa Home Theater Reference 7000 is designed for use as a ceiling-mounted left-, right-, or center-channel speaker, or as a side or rear surround, in high-quality multichannel home theaters and music systems. And, in many installations, it can also serve as the perfect solution for a necessary height-channel speaker.

A flat, round micro-perforation grille magnetically attaches to the HTR 7000’s facia, seamlessly covering the mounting flange for an attractive, nearly “invisible” look.

Internally, the same superb 7″ high-definition cast-basket driver used in the acclaimed Aon 3 is combined with one of GoldenEar’s Signature Technology HVFR™ tweeters, then perfectly blended via a complex crossover network that incorporates a high-frequency equalization switch. These drivers are mounted at precisely calculated angles so that they face the normal listening position for exceptional imaging, superior frequency response, remarkable clarity, and precise focus.

Further, through a combination of GoldenEar’s FocusField™ Technology and a unique Non-Periodic Waveform (NPW) Diffraction Control and Wave-Launch construction, the HTR 7000 minimizes deleterious diffraction effects and optimizes wave-launch into the room to achieve open, box-less, three-dimensional imaging that appears to come from across the front wall rather than the ceiling.

JBL’s Next Great Studio Monitor is Here

Introducing the 4349

Designed and engineered in JBL’s world-famous acoustic engineering facility in Northridge, California, the 4349 Studio Monitor is a showcase of patented JBL acoustic technologies. This loudspeaker features a 2-way design with patented High-Definition Imaging (HDI™) horn technology, the patented D2415K dual 1.5-inch (38mm) compression driver, and a 12-inch cast-frame, pure-pulp cone woofer for powerful dynamics and incredibly accurate sound reproduction.

JBL’s revolutionary High-Definition Imaging horn geometry is the result of intense research into the nuances of horn design. In search of exceptional high-frequency detail and uniform directivity for smooth in-room response, JBL engineers pioneered a design that delivers neutral frequency response both on- and off-axis and provides a seamless transition between the high and low frequency drivers.

The JBL D2415K compression driver benefits from the advanced research and applications derived from JBL Professional’s “D2” range of transducers. At the core of the D2415K device is a pair of lightweight, polymer, annular diaphragms that improve high-frequency extension by reducing mass. The V-shaped geometry of the diaphragm reduces breakup modes, eliminating time smear and reducing distortion.

The 4349’s powerful 12-inch woofer takes advantage of core JBL engineering techniques to ensure optimum performance. The 3-inch long-throw voice coil in conjunction with dual opposing spider dampers guarantee maximum output with significantly reduced distortion. A pure-pulp cone provides a lightweight, rigid diaphragm and helps to eliminate breakup modes, ensuring proper pistonic motion throughout the operating band.

The cabinet features a classic JBL studio monitor design with a blue baffle and is finished in Walnut or Black Walnut furniture-grade satin wood veneers. A blue (Walnut) or black (Black Walnut) cloth grille completes the elegant appearance.

Klipsch Introduces Real Custom Cinema Speaker Systems for Home Use

Klipsch is pleased to introduce its Real Custom Cinema behind-the-screen audio solutions for the home. Klipshc has been a leader in professional cinema sound for decades and has adapted these legendary speakers to deliver the same cinematic experience for home use. The speaker systems are among the first in the market to be packaged as easy-to-order-and-install modular bundles.

The Klipsch Real Custom Cinema speaker systems are designed to fit most medium to large dedicated home theater or media rooms, for placement behind an acoustically transparent screen in 16:9 or widescreen formats. At just 20.25” deep, each modular bundle includes highly efficient horn-loaded left, center and right channel speakers with either 3” or 1.75” compression drivers, depending on the system, and 15” woofers, and two 18” subwoofers. The Klipsch Real Custom Cinema behind-the-screen speakers are designed and handcrafted in Hope, Arkansas.

Not only do the speakers deliver impactful cinematic experiences, they were designed with the integrator in mind. The process is simple. Determine the screen size and position in the room, order one of three Klipsch part numbers depending on the width of the screen, cut the hole or build out a false wall, place the speakers, connect the wires, and hang the screen over the speakers. The modular false wall design will eliminate light creep behind the screen for a professional audio and visual experience. High performance Klipsch Professional cinema surround speakers or THX Cinema Series speakers are available separately to compliment the Real Custom Cinema behind-the-screen speaker system and complete the surround sound experience.

RTI Driver Updates

Here’s an update on the latest RTI drivers, starting with three new “Helper” drivers.

Integer Helper

The Integer Helper Driver assists with some of the tasks that you commonly deal with when using the integer-based variables in a driver: It can scale or translate a number from one range to another that is more intuitive for your customer (and you). It creates an alert mechanism when a variable gets outside a given range, and can also present Boolean (reverse/visible) variables for each possible value. Example: If a receiver’s volume range is -80 to 12, but you want it to be 0 to 100, this driver can do that conversion. It can do Fahrenheit to Celsius, or any other conversion. You don’t need to know the formula. Just enter the original range and the range you want, and the driver figures out the conversion.

Learn more and download Integer Helper

Text Helper

This driver lets you format text variables on an RTI remote or touchpanel in specific ways to produce varied text effects which can be used aesthetically or artistically to produce more appealing and noticeable UI’s. The driver does not control an external device, but can be used to monitor any text variable by providing an event when that variable changes. The sample included with the Text Helper Driver creates an all uppercase interface for the Yamaha MusicCast system, with some extra spacing for the title. In addition, it uses some of the obscure features of the Integer Helper to create text gauges for volume and progress, and pops up the actual volume text for 3 seconds whenever it changes.

Logic Helper

This driver lets you combine logic-based variables in a simple way to create buttons in the UI that require a little more demanding logic, for example, when the visibility or reversed state of a button is determined by ‘this’ AND/OR ‘that’ happening.

For example, the Logic Helper driver lets you select Boolean variables from any driver in the project and combine them to create new variables with more complex logic, such as: “Door is open AND there is motion”, “Power is on and the input is on HDMI1”, “Front door OR back door OR garage door status is ‘open,’ only on Wednesday.”

Sony Bravia IP (Updated Version 1.34)

This driver is for the Sony KDL (2014-15 only) / XBR / FW series televisions using Ethernet connectivity. Driver Update: Additional parsing added for 4k/8k inputs in the new models.

Severtson Screens Enhanced SAT-4K & TAT-4K Acoustically-Transparent Projection Screens

Severtson Screens enhanced next generation SAT-4K and TAT-4K Acoustically-Transparent projection screen lines have received tremendous accolades since their launch. Severtson is proud to build upon their success with the next generation which features an even finer weave that makes the viewing image even better than before. Made in the USA, the SAT-4K and TAT-4K replicate the cinema experience in the home and commercial settings like no other projection screen on the market today. The TAT-4K offers the same innovative technology as the SAT-4K, but is designed specifically for installations with incoming ambient light, meeting and exceeding all industry standards for optimum acoustic performance.

The SAT-4K offers a seamless projection screen up to 15ft., 10in., and, like the TAT-4K, is also available as an option for Severtson’s new 4K thin/zero bezel fixed frame projection screen solutions. Acoustically-transparent, the entire sound stage can be placed directly behind the screen at the same horizontal axis, allowing the vocals and the special effects to be completely in sync with the brilliant images on display. This will allow for a completely immersive audio and video experience. Available in Impression, Deluxe, and Deluxe Curved configurations, the SAT-4K screen meets or exceeds all industry standards for optimum video and acoustic performance, providing reference quality reproduction of the digital image combined with true fidelity of the original soundtrack.

The TAT-4K’s uniform pattern weave is unique. With these screens, there is virtually no audio or video scatter. At the same time, the screens preserve superior and deeper contrast in areas with limited light control. Additionally, the titanium-grey shade on the TAT-4K preserves picture contrast even in rooms that are not completely dark, so you get a crisp image that will amaze viewers.

Custom and standard sizes are available. Severtson asks that customers contact them directly for individual pricing for their specific needs. For more information, please visit www.severtsonscreens.com, call 480-610-5155, or email sales@severtsonscreens.com.
