Designed around Class G amplification for a seamless blend of power and efficiency, the SA30 models Arcam’s latest casework and fascia, and boasts an extensive feature list.

Devotees of the latest hi-resolution digital audio systems will welcome the SA30’s support for MQA (Master Quality Authenticated), as offered by the likes of TIDAL Masters, and its Roon Endpoint status means that it is all set to receive audio from Roon’s digital music player and library system.

As well as ARC support, custom install professionals will no doubt value the amplifier’s comprehensive I/P control suite, including Control4 and Crestron compatibility.

Scott Campbell, Director of Sales and Marketing for Arcam, says, “The SA30 represents the new pinnacle for stereo amplification from ARCAM. Our hugely talented design team has left nothing on the pitch here. This is Class G technology expertly implemented and teamed with the latest cutting-edge features, including room correction technology, hi-resolution audio support, and custom install provision.”

Luxul Self-Healing Switches Change the Game for Integrators

Provide Auto-Recovery and Power Scheduling for PoE-Connected Devices

To reduce service calls and deliver additional benefits for clients, Luxul, the leading innovator of IP networking solutions for AV integrators, now offers a Self-Healing capability for select managed network switches. The new functionality empowers integrators with two advanced features: Auto-Recovery and Power Scheduling.

Luxul’s Self-Healing capability is currently available on the company’s 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P, 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P,1 2-port/8 PoE+ AMS-1208P, 26-port/24 PoE+ stackable L2/L3 AMS-4424P, 26-port/24 PoE+ AMS-2624P, 26-port/24 PoE+ XMS-2624P, 52-port PoE+ L2/L3 XMS-5248P, and 52-port stackable L2/L3 XMS-7048. With Auto-Recovery, devices connected to these switches by PoE no longer need to be manually rebooted when they fall offline or become unresponsive; the configuration in the switch triggers PoE-connected devices to reboot automatically. And with Power Scheduling, integrators can now trigger the switches to power PoE-connected devices on or off based on any schedule they create within the switch.

“With Self-Healing, we’re amping up the performance of Luxul switches to an entirely new level,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “Imagine never getting another call about security cameras or other PoE-connected devices freezing up; your clients’ switches will take care of them automatically. Furthermore, it’s effortless to schedule devices to power down overnight, over the weekend, or whenever your clients request it. All it takes to realize these benefits is a free firmware update.”

Monitor Audio Flush Fit Speaker System

The CF230 & ICS-8 are Monitor Audio’s most visually discreet architectural speakers to date.

Featuring a 3.5” C-CAM driver and ¾” C-CAM Gold Dome Tweeter, the CF230 in-ceiling speaker offers superb flexibility, providing an abundance of design possibilities for integrators, architects and designers to work with. The CF230’s pre-construction and retrofit options are the key to upholding its flexibility claims, and this ability to fit into any set-up means that the new speaker is easier and more economical than other models.

In a pre-construction, flush fit setting, the result is a seamless appearance with no shadow-creating edges, and one which becomes even more discreet when the grille is painted to match the ceiling colour. The finished result is quickly achieved, thanks to the CF230’s carefully developed, patent pending pre-construction kit.

Fitting the CF230 into an existing construction, or where minimal disruption to the building is a mandatory requirement, the retrofit installation kit is used. The flexible bracket fits in a hole smaller than the bracket area, and provides a firm fixing behind the plasterboard/Sheetrock, complete with precise machine screw fixing points for the driver.

The ICS-8 subwoofer was primarily developed to complement the CF230. It will fit into ceiling and wall cavities and under floors, enhancing the CF230 driver array and providing powerful, punchy bass down to 40 Hz.

The ICS-8 follows the same visual appearance as the CF230, with round and square flush fit grille options on offer. The subwoofer’s 8” driver uses Monitor Audio’s renowned C-CAM cone technology and is angled internally in the rigid MDF enclosure to reduce the ICS-8’s overall box height. Integrators can combine an ICS-8 with a CF230 system, fit grilles to match and create a stunning sounding audio system from a practically invisible, yet extensive, speaker set-up.


Nexus 21’s Apex Poised to Reset the Industry’s Expectations of Motorized Wall Mounts

Finally, a motorized TV wall mount that gets everything right. Apex from Nexus 21 is now available – the articulating mount calls on integrators and professionals to forget everything they know about motorized wall mounts. Nexus 21 set out not to simply build on the industry’s previous reprises of the motorized wall mount, but to re-engineer it from the ground up. The result? A purpose-built system that solves any potential challenge a professional might face.

Motorized mounts of the past would often break, costing professionals time and money. Apex was mechanically designed with “Smart Drive” technology, which prevents damage when it’s moved manually. “Smart Drive” renders Apex actively aware of its position, allowing it to recover from unexpected changes to its path and instantly release for safety when encountering resistance.

Apex is just as innovative in form as it is in function. It’s the first motorized wall mount ever created that fits completely inside the wall, with an ultra-thin installation profile of just ¾”. A host of design features make Apex an installer’s dream. A versatile Wall Box can be mounted either in-wall or on-wall for ultimate flexibility throughout the planning process. Three-step installation allows for a simple process by a single technician. Three-point adjustments enable fine-tuning of the TV, quickly correcting its position in the event of an uneven installation. Dedicated component-mounting locations, as well as the proprietary COBRA Concealed Cable-Management System, provide a sleek aesthetic and prevent cable wear and tear.

“The inspiration behind Apex is to erase the pain professionals experienced with motorized mounts of the past. No more damaged motors. No more loud, bulky mechanisms,” said Nexus 21 CEO Cory Lovett. “Apex allows integrators to say ‘yes’ to their customers every time and spec a motorized mount with confidence.”


New Slimline 10-Channel 16A PDU

Penn Elcom’s latest range of 19” power-switching devices offer a ‘best-in-class pick’ for system integrators, rack builders and event techs alike.

These slimline models are now just 1U – half the rack space of older 2U devices – and provide 10 switchable output sockets. Each is controlled by a sturdy rocker switch, neon-lit for quick identification whether in bright or low light.

Finished in Penn’s classic matt-black powder coating, contrasting handsomely with the bank of striking red neon-lit switches, the PDU16-10DJ looks great in any rack.

Device power is supplied via a rear C20 inlet and outputs to a row of ten C13 / IEC outlets and a thermal overload trip switch ensures power is cut to all sockets if activated, providing the requisite safety for industrial use. 

Supplied in the box is a 1.8m power cable (types G, E/F, B or 1) depending on the model chosen. 

Four different versions to offer a choice of power cable types.

PDU16-10DJ-UK:

RTI Releases Line of AV Distribution ‘Problem Solvers’

DACs, Delay Module, and Extender Kit Designed to Solve Common Audio Challenges

RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer, today announced that its new line of audio distribution solutions is now shipping. Consisting of digital audio converters (DACs), a delay module, and an extender kit, the products are purpose-built to resolve common audio challenges.

“Integrators are constantly running into situations that would benefit from a simple solution that would eliminate a tear-out or system redesign,” said Brett Stokke, director of marketing, RTI. “Whether it’s dealing with legacy gear, mismatched video resolutions, or distributed audio challenges, our new lineup of AV distribution devices gives dealers a cost-effective answer to common issues and helps them finish the job.”

New RTI DACs include the ADA-1 Dolby Digital-to-Analog Downmixer and the VDM1x HDMI Downscaler With Downmixer. The ADA-1 decodes audio signals from sources with S/PDIF coaxial or TOSLINK optical outputs — such as Blu-ray players and media streamers — and converts them to standard stereo output for analog sound systems. The VDM-1x is ideal for multizone installations featuring a mix of both HD and 4K sources and displays. In addition to downscaling or upscaling video signals for compatibility with displays of different resolutions, the unit downmixes incoming Dolby Digital to stereo PCM audio.

To address lip-sync issues and the challenges of long-distance signal distribution, RTI offers the ADM-1 Audio Delay Module and AXP-1 Digital Audio Extender Kit, respectively. To compensate for delays caused by differences in the audio processing speed of output devices, the ADM-1 allows integrators to delay audio from 20 ms to 340 ms using a 16-way selector dial. The AXP-1 seamlessly transmits audio over distances surpassing 650 feet using a standard Cat5e/6 cable. The unit supports coaxial and S/PDIF digital audio signals, stereo and multi-channel digital audio, 2-channel PCM sources, and 5.1 compressed audio.

The ADA-1, ADM-1, AXP-1, and VDM-1x are all shipping. More information about RTI is available at www.rticorp.com.
