Magewell will unveil its most powerful decoder hardware to date in booth SU5724 at the 2020 NAB Show (April 19-22 in Las Vegas). Believed to be the industry’s first hardware decoder to support both Newtek’s NDI® technology for production-grade media transport and the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol – developed and open-sourced by Haivision – for internet-delivered H.264 and H.265 streams, the Pro Convert for NDI® to HDMI 4K transforms IP streams up to 4Kp60 for baseband output over HDMI.
The company is also simultaneously launching a second new model, the Pro Convert H.26x to HDMI 4K, which offers the same rich features as the Pro Convert for NDI® to HDMI 4K for users who don’t require NDI support. Both models also support additional streaming protocols including RTSP, RTMP, UDP, RTP and HTTP streaming.

With the introduction of the powerCON Tee™, Lex Products expands the means of creating infinitely configurable, single-circuit portable power distribution systems. Taking advantage of the Neutrik® powerCON® series, the powerCON Tee™ allows power to pass through a molded housing while energizing a connector on an 18” tail. Depending on the connector selected, the powerCON Tee™ system will address the power requirements of devices without powerCONs® in a powerCON® ‘daisy chain’ or serve as an extremely compact ‘two-fer’.
As the latest addition to the Lex Products stocking model, the exclusive EverGrip® design won’t dent, scratch or corrode while creating a product more impact resistant than a metal box. Using 12/3 SJOOW cable, the rugged overmold design creates a strong bond between the cable and connections for superior strain relief and secure termination.

PreSonus Eris E7 XT Joins the Family

Once upon a time, there was a family of Eris who lived at PreSonus down on the Louisiana bayou. There was a great big Eris named E8 XT; a middle-sized Eris named E7 XT, who just recently joined the family; and the cher petite  E5 XT. The Eris family also had two sets of nearly identical twins: Eris E4.5 and E4.5 BT and Eris E3.5 and E3.5 BT. (The Eris family included two cousins, E44 and E66, but that’s a story for another night.) Over the years, the Eris family became very popular on the bayou and far beyond, and for good reasons.

Eris E8 XT is very powerful indeed, and his 8-inch woven composite woofer and large size results in a deep rich voice that reaches all the way down to 35 Hz. His voice is best appreciated in a moderately large studio space for those that appreciate a big bass sound. Eris E5 XT, with his 5-inch woofer, sounds great in smaller spaces, such as bedroom studios, but his voice doesn’t reach as low as the mighty E8 XT, and he might be too small to fill large studio spaces.

It’s the first huddle and meeting room projector designed for the future of intuitive and intelligent collaboration.”
