Houses of Worship AV Products
Jul 29, 2014 11:49 AM
Legrand’s latest in its line of high-performance wire and cable management devices, the Evolution series ceiling box, is offered in six variations. These 2’x2’x6”-deep boxes fit above a false or permanent ceiling to provide storage for electronic audio/video and IT equipment, and to support a projector, if required. These boxes are designed for conference rooms, classrooms, training facilities, or anywhere a projector and/or AV equipment is needed and where large racks or furniture storage are not practical. The six versions of the Evolution series include three units with a projector mount and several options for electrical circuitry. Receptacles within each box are uncontrolled, controlled by dry contact, or feature network (IP) or RS-232-series-port-enabled RackLink technology from Middle Atlantic Products, which monitors and controls the power to AV and IT equipment. Receptacles are rotated to accommodate large plugs. The shelves inside the ceiling box are designed to easily pivot forward and backward, providing access to both the front and back of installed devices. The shelves can even be removed (without tools) to allow for devices to load outside the box and then be reinstalled. A unique pattern of slots and holes enables installers to use a variety of techniques for securing equipment in place.
Console Software Update
Studer has released the version 5.1 upgrade to its Vista 1 console, adding sister company Lexicon effects processing to the Vista 1 digital broadcast console. “The new software enables the built-in Lexicon FX surround processors [two engines with up to eight mono effects processors] for the Vista 1, controlled directly from the Vistonics U/I, all in one very compact footprint,” says Product Manager Roger Heiniger. Primary applications for the Vista 1 include broadcast production, OB trucks and vans, theater, houses of worship, live, and music production. The Vista 1 is available in 32 or 22 motorized fader options, featuring the patented Vistonics and FaderGlow user interfaces and is capable of 96 DSP channels including 5.1 surround, true broadcast monitoring, talkback, red light control, and GPIO.
Wall Plate Transmitter
The FSR DV-WPHXT-1Tx-WHT wall plate transmitter allows one VGA and one HDMI/DVI-D high-quality digital media input to be connected at a distance of up to 150ft. from a receiver using a single unshielded Cat-6 network cable. The unit switches automatically to a live video source, operates manually via a pushbutton on the wall plate face, or via RS-232 control. The white wall-plate front-panel connections include an HD-15 connector, a HDMI connector, and a 3.5mm stereo mini plug. The rear surface hosts an RJ-45 output connector and a captive-screw connector for power and RS-232 communication. It’s ideal for worship applications because it features a VGA input and a digital input connection plate that automatically switches to a receiver via Cat-X cable and outputs HDMI audio and video. The DV-WPHXT-1CTx-WHT is compatible with FSR’s DV-HXT-1Rx CAT-x receiver and is available as a kit. The transmitter units can be ordered separately when using them in conjunction with FSR’s DV-MFSW-94 presentation matrix router.
