In Audio, Audio Product News, Gallery, Lighting, Lighting Product News, Product Newsby

Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, today announced its industry-recognized Forward installation solutions are now shipping. Built to install today’s systems at tomorrow’s speed, Forward is designed around an innovative new rackrail and Middle Atlantic’s patented universal hole pattern that allow the family’s blank and vent panels, cable management, lighting, and other rack solutions to be quickly installed without tools. With Forward, integrators can install everyday rack builds five times faster and with the reliability to ensure a satisfying and positive AV experience.
“When we asked installers where they spend a majority of their time and where they experience the biggest challenges, they told us it was inside the rack,” said Paul Dolynchuk, director of product management at Legrand | AV – Middle Atlantic Products. “Using that feedback, we created Forward. The highly anticipated family of options cleverly solves the most time-consuming rack-building tasks — from working in pitch-black spaces, mounting panels, and anchoring unwieldy cabling spaghetti, to dealing with power blips — without ever picking up a drill. Now integrators can release their inner speed demons, building an AV rack system more quickly and efficiently than they ever thought possible.”
The Forward accessory and options line addresses the entire system lifecycle and builds upon industry-leading products that integrators have depended on for decades.

New Models Easily Integrate Contact Closure-Driven Switch Sets With an RJ-45 Connection, Eliminates Soldering Tasks
LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, announced the addition of RJ-45-connections to switch sets. The SS-2LRP locking rack plate switch set, SS-2DPL brushed aluminum decora insert, and SS-2PL single-gang stainless-steel wall plate no longer require the task of soldering wire connections for contact closure-driven switch sets with a simple RJ-45 connection.
“Soldering is a dying art due to increased use of RJ-45 connectors and corresponding cables,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “By not requiring the connections to be soldered, our new switch sets not only reduce installation costs with less labor and required wire involved but also simplify post-installation maintenance and troubleshooting, since no soldering has to be redone. This addition to our accessories keeps pace with the increasing use of RJ-45 connectors on projects and aligns with our ongoing commitment to deliver power control options that streamline the installation and user experience.”

New DPA 2028 Vocal Mic Aims to Change the Live Performance Landscape

In Audio, Audio Industry News, home_page, Product Newsby admin

ALLEROD, DENMARK, AUGUST 2019DPA Microphones presents a new addition to its microphone lineup, the 2028 Vocal Microphone. The 2028 delivers DPA’s renowned natural sound, which allows all types of vocals to shine. Perfect for everyone from indie artists to international touring singers, the 2028 mic is ideally suited for live stage performances, broadcast and pro AV applications.
On a live stage, the 2028 delivers the same sonic qualities as DPA’s other great solutions. In fact, the 2028 needs no (or very little) EQ to sound just like you are standing next to the singer listening to their performance. This allows the artist to hone-in on their vocals as if not using a microphone, which puts less strain on the voice. In addition, the transparency of the 2028 allows engineers to spend their time shaping the sound experience rather than covering up issues caused by artifacts.
