Leading control and automation manufacturer RTI has expanded its family of music control solutions with the new MS-1 Music Streamer. The MS-1 provides integrators with a single-stream solution fully integrated with RTI control systems in residential or commercial settings. It can also add a stream to an existing RTI Music system. Like the award-winning three-stream MS-3, the MS-1 seamlessly delivers high-resolution audio (24bit/192kHz) from the most popular streaming music services or from a local NAS to any room with the touch of a button.

“Music is a touchpoint of life, whether you’re at home or at a business, and we want to make it easy and enjoyable to access music playlists and streaming services from within the RTI control experience,” said Neal Ellsworth, RTI Director of Product Management. “The MS-1 delivers a single stream option with all the integrator and user benefits of the RTI Music system. Together, the MS-1 and the three-stream MS-3 give the integrator options to cost-effectively get the right number of streams into a project.”

L-Acoustics Launches Ambiance Virtual Acoustics System, Powered by L-ISA

In Audio, Audio Product News, home_page, Image, Product News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

L-Acoustics announces the launch of the L-ISA Ambiance™ virtual acoustics enhancement system. Ambiance uses L-Acoustics loudspeaker systems, microphones, and an advanced 3D Room Engine powered by the L-ISA Processor II. Ambiance empowers acousticians, theater and audio-visual consultants, composers, and sound designers to transform the acoustic properties and qualities of a venue space to match the desired atmosphere. Ambiance enhances experiences by better connecting audiences and performers to each other and to their shared space.

The architecture and acoustics of a venue play an integral part in the audience and performer experience. From concert halls with long reverberation times that impart a lush feel for orchestras, to cinemas and halls with minimal reverb that allows for clear speech intelligibility, the experience of a space is as much due to the feel of its sound as to its decor. Where once venues were designed for single-use, today’s spaces are multi-purpose, changing with the calendar to better serve wider audiences.

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

Launched earlier this year, ADJ’s Encore Lime Par Series of fixtures all feature the same potent quad color (RGB + Lime) LEDs. This ensures perfectly uniform color mixing when different fixture types are used together within a lighting design. Each model also has the same style of robust IP65-rated casing but features a different number of the LEDs. Following the original introduction of the Encore LP7IP, Encore LP12IP and Encore LP18IP models – with 7, 12 and 18 LEDs, respectively – the range has now been expanded to include the new Encore LP5IP model – which features five LEDs arranged into the smallest fixture in the series.

Each LED is rated at 20-Watts and combined in multiples they generate a potent output with an even, soft-edged beam. Through precise 16-bit dimming control over the four primary LED colors – red, green, blue and lime – the fixtures are able to generate a large gamut of colors and hues. The inclusion of the lime LED chip helps certain colors to appear more vivid and also boosts the CRI to an impress 86.2.

ADJ Expands Popular Hydro Series Of IP65-rated Moving Head Fixtures With One Profile And Two Spots

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

All of the Hydro Series fixtures feature robust all metal construction and are IP65-rated to allow safe temporary outdoor use in all weather conditions. The sealed casing design also means that the light source, electronics and internal mechanisms are protected from dust, dirt and airborne particles, including humidity and haze residue. The fixtures therefore require reduced maintenance schedules and are likely to offer extended operational lifespans, when compared with conventional fixtures. For this reason, many production companies are choosing to invest in all IP65-rated equipment, giving the flexibility to use them for both indoor and outdoor events. Similarly, many installers are choosing Hydro Series fixtures even for indoor permanent installations.

Sitting proudly at the top of the expanded Hydro Series, the Hydro Profile combines an immense 660-Watt LED engine, which produces 25,000 Lumens, with an expansive feature set to offer a professional lighting powerhouse. Its beam can be precisely manipulated using a four-blade rotatable framing system, alongside motorized zoom (6 ~ 45 degrees), focus and iris, together with two frost filters. A CMY color mixing system, combined with a variable CTO flag and six slot replaceable color wheel, allow for exceptional versatility and creative freedom when it comes to color selection. Meanwhile, two GOBO wheels, two rotating prisms (six-facet circular and five-facet linear), and an animation wheel allow for the creation of an almost unlimited variety of aerial effects and surface pattern projections.
