Atlona Announces Second-Generation Velocity AV Control Platform

Atlona has significantly updated its groundbreaking Velocity™ IP-enabled AV control platform, with exciting new features and flexible deployment options for commercial AV environments.

Velocity’s expanded and enhanced platform offers greater ability to plan and scale AV control system designs, from 1-3 systems to large, enterprise-wide installations. The new release will also integrate new capabilities at no extra cost, including room scheduling, unlimited BYOD usage for AV control, integration with leading soft codec platforms (Zoom Rooms, Cisco WebEx), AV asset management, and remote monitoring and management from the cloud.

 “Our new Velocity System model removes the burden of specifying, configuring, deploying and managing separate platforms for AV control, room scheduling, and asset management,” said David Shamir, Director of Product Management, Atlona. “With the integration of the Atlona Management System (AMS) into Velocity, installers can now configure, control, and manage not just the control systems, but individual Atlona AV devices as well. Velocity also retains the functionality and benefits that made it a groundbreaking AV control system, including an IT-friendly architecture, built-in disaster recovery, and the ability to quickly configure, modify and extend control systems without extensive programming.”

Velocity’s updated platform includes new VGW-HW hardware server gateways to serve multiple rooms with AV control, room scheduling, and configuration and management of Atlona AV devices. With a single VGW-HW gateway serving multiple rooms, the Velocity System substantially reduces cost of ownership compared to competitive AV control platforms requiring a separate processor per AV system or room.

Also available is the VGW-SW software server gateway, which provides the capabilities of the VGW-HW hardware devices, with the convenience of installation on standard IT server infrastructure.

Ultimate Discretion with Audiophile Performance

Monitor Audio’s IV140 Invisible In-Wall speaker is a breakthrough design that delivers ‘best in class’ audio performance in concealed in-wall and in-ceiling applications.

The IV140 offers a unique solution to designers and clients who want to listen to high performance audio, but also want to preserve the interior aesthetic. The IV140 fits into all conventional 4″ stud bays, leaving enough room for cabling. Once installed and skimmed with plaster, the speaker is completely out of sight, with paint, light wallpaper or fabric hiding it from view.

The IV140 features a large low-frequency transducer for punchy, high power bass along with two high frequency transducers which are bonded to a flat, soft polymer membrane surface to produce sound vibration. This two-way design also features an integrated crossover in the same way as a conventional high-performance speaker to generate a wider frequency range. The result is crystal clear sound quality with smoother overall frequency undulation, balance and character.

The audio experience is further enhanced by Monitor Audio’s unique hybrid back box design for the IV140 which isolates sound and ensures consistent, controlled performance, regardless of placement. This rigid back box reduces sound emitted from the rear of the speaker, minimizing leakage into adjoining rooms.

The design effectively limits low frequency below 75Hz which can be a major asset, especially when the IV140 is deployed in home cinemas with an additional subwoofer. For projects where more low frequency extension is required, the rear cover can be removed to create an open back speaker.


Penn Launches New Range of Slimline Power Distribution Units

Penn Elcom releases its sleek new PDU16-10DJ PDU (power distribution unit) range of 1U rack mounting units which combine all the power and practicality of 10 switchable output sockets – available with different socket outlets – and a range of power ratings between 10 and 16 Amps.

The full catalogue of Penn PDU devices now includes these four new slimline variants plus four other 2U devices, all of which are designed to flexibly assist full connectivity in a wide array of scenarios.

The new slimline PD models look good finished in matte black with dark red neon-lit switches.

The 1U height takes up half the rack space of previous generation 2U devices, and most importantly, the units have been designed to Penn Elcom’s classic ‘rock solid’ standards – renowned for their robust build and quality engineering.

The PDU16-10DJ range is ideal for numerous installation and integration applications – from live music venues, theatres and studios to clubs, restaurants and bars, plus custom install applications like home automation.

Each of the ten switchable channels is protected by a thermal current overload trip switch, and each numbered channel has a dedicated rocker switch with a neon indicator light for quick and easy identification, so users can spot immediately whether if a load is present – or not – in both bright and dark light conditions.

Power comes in via a panel mounted C20 socket and is distributed to ten C13 / IEC outlets.

A thermal overload trip switch cuts the power supply to all sockets if activated, providing the requisite safety standards for general industrial use. 

The four popular standard slimline PD units available from stock via Penn Elcom Online are:

The PDU16-10DJ-UK, which offers Type G outlets – 13A for the UK, Ireland, Malta, Malaysia & Singapore) each limited to a 13A maximum load. For 16A loads, the sockets can be replaced with Blue C-forms.

The PDU16-10DJ-EU has Type E / outlets with 16A loading for Europe, France, Belgium, Poland, Russia, the Czech & Slovak Republics, etc.

PDU16-10DJ-US features Type B outlets for 15A loads and use in the USA, Canada, Mexico & Japan.

PDU16-10DJ-AU is fitted with Type 1 outlets offering 10A maximum load distribution for Australia, New Zealand, China & Argentina. For 16A use, these can also be replaced with Blue C-form outlets.

Each unit is supplied with a 1.8-metre-long power cable, complete with a choice according to country / region. 

These rack power-switching devices are designed to offer event quality, cost-efficient, ‘best-in-class’ choice for system integrators and rack builders working across all sectors on multiple types and styles of project.

Other products in the range include the PDU16-AV which is still extremely expedient on space at 2U. This multi-selection device takes in power via a PowerCon locking input and outputs to IEC, USB and universal sockets. It has a clear and legible LCD display to monitor voltage, current, power consumption and energy levels, plus illuminated circuit breakers and VDR protection in case of lightning strikes and local power surges.

The PDU16-UN takes power from a standard 16A C-form plug – typically found on generators and in event venues – and distributes to universal sockets compatible with plugs from the UK, US, Europe and Australia, with a maximum combined load of 16A. Illuminated Circuit Breakers offer 16A overload protection and this model also has the LCD monitor as well as an M4 screw terminal for rack grounding.

The PDU16-PC and PDU16-EU deliver the same functionality, but instead of offering universal sockets, they’re fitted with Neutrik PowerCon or EU (Schuko) sockets.

For professional event use, Penn’s PDU16-6UK completes the range …  a UK stage or truss mounting power distribution box with a super tough steel case and high-spec components

Constant Voltage Commercial Speakers

Stealth’s most popular indoor and outdoor distributed audio speakers are available as constant voltage models.  Ideal for commercial projects, these speakers don’t sacrifice sound quality and won’t clutter the space with unsightly speaker grills. Stealth’s constant voltage speakers are compatible with 70-volt amplifier systems and have transformer tap values of 30/20/10/5 or 60/30/20/10 watts (depending on model).

Constant voltage variants of Stealth’s LRX-83, LR8g and LR6g model Invisible Speakers feature excellent audio performance and the same built-in protection circuitry as their standard model counterparts. Once the speakers are installed in a wall or ceiling (similar to installing a wallboard patch) and painted, they disappear into any office or showroom to be heard, but never seen.

For outdoor project spaces, the 60w 70v constant voltage StingRay 8 and the smaller StingRay 6 are ideal. Stealth’s StingRay speakers are IP68 rated, meaning they are sealed to withstand the harshest environments, and have a sleek appearance without any grills or ports that would allow dirt, moisture and pests inside. StingRay speakers are available in white or black finish with a full line of mounting accessories. Additional custom finish options include factory-applied paint or vinyl graphics. Vinyl graphics can be used to further camouflage speakers into their surroundings or to make them stand out with branding or other artwork.

Constant voltage speakers are built to suit. Please call Stealth Acoustics for design assistance, custom orders and availability. Stealth’s high-quality, commercial grade transformers are also available for purchase separately.

WyreStorm has been a leader in AV over IP technology for several years. Our award-winning NetworkHD series of encoders and decoders have been recognized by the AV industry as the tried and true AV over IP solution for professional integrators. Continuing to improve and expand capabilities, WyreStorm is announcing the NHD-400-DNT-TX, the latest addition to the NetworkHD 400 series 4K HDR Low Latency platform.

The NHD-400-DNT-TX maintains all the great features of the existing NHD-400-TX, including 4K HDR transmissions over a 1GbE network, routable IR/RS232 control and USB extension, and routing for K/M applications. New to the table is the transmission of Audinate’s Dante and AES67 networked audio.
