As CEO and founder of Leading Edge Multimedia, David Anderson utilizes state of the art and cost-effective production equipment to record and live stream sporting events, concerts, business conferences, house of worship applications, and much more for his clients’ various needs. Anderson was looking for an extremely small, easily transportable camera with superior image quality and reliable streaming capabilities and he found the solution he was looking for in the CV346 Compact HD Camera from Marshall Electronics.

Anderson first learned of Marshall cameras through an industry friend about four years ago and has been using Marshall ever since. “Today’s current situation has highlighted the importance of being able to successfully live stream productions from various locations for a multitude of applications,” says Anderson. “Marshall fits the bill really well because they are so small and yet their image quality is on par with much larger, more expensive cameras. The Marshall cameras shade so well that it is very tough for the untrained eye to tell the difference between many of the extremely expensive, large format broadcast cameras versus a Marshall camera.”

ADJ’s Next Generation Beam Fixture Is Here

Beam fixtures based on the immensely popular Philips® Platinum 5R lamp, such as ADJ’s Vizi Beam 5RX, have been staples of most concert, festival and superclub lighting rigs for the past decade. Now, the ADJ Vizi Beam 12RX ups the ante with a fixture that is not only noticeably brighter (while still maintaining a relatively low power draw) but also packs in an enhanced feature set to give lighting designers unprecedented creative potential.

The Vizi Beam 12RX harneses the power of a 260W Philips® Platinum 12R LL lamp, which features an innovative reflector design to generate an extremely high-intensity beam. This is coupled with precision-engineered optics and a large glass front lens to allow the fixture to generate an exceptionally potent and sharp beam. It outputs approximately 9,400 lumens (compared to around 8,000 lumens for a 5R fixture) and measures approximately 70,200 lux at 20 metres [65.6 ft] (compared to around 58,000 lux for a 5R model). In practice, this makes for a visibly brighter and more intense beam. In addition, the lamp has an extended lifespan of up to 6,000 hours (increased from 2,000 – 3,000 for the 5R) which significantly reduces the cost and inconvenience of lamp replacements.

EN54-16 Certification for Fixed Install Amps

In Audio, Audio Product News, home_page, Image, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Powersoft today announced it has gained certification for its amplifiers to be used in Public Address and Voice Alarm (PAVA) systems according to the European EN 54-16 requirements.

The EN 54-16 certification describes the required testing and performance criteria for a Voice Alarm Control and Indication Equipment (VACIE) for use in alarm systems installed in buildings, where the alarm signal is in the form of a tone, or voice message, or both. The certification now covers the extended range of Powersoft’s fixed install dedicated amplifiers, including the Ottocanali, Quattrocanali, Duecanali, as well as the X Series.

The importance of PAVA systems is widely recognized as an effective way to produce a timely reaction in most people when using voice guidance in emergency situations as opposed to the response to text and alarm bell information, which under half of the individuals respond effectively to. The use of clear vocal messages has been shown to greatly increase the response time and provide the opportunity to guide occupants to the safest escape route.
