Tamper resistant 22MM pushbuttons
NKK Switches

YB2 Series: The YB2 Series of 22mm pushbuttons is offered in both illuminated and non-illuminated models. Features for the pushbuttons include tamper resistant, flush mount, panel seal and super low profile. The dust-tight and splash-proof panel seal design protects the YB2 series against low pressure jets of water from all directions and meets IP65 of IEC60529 standards. At 1.8mm, these pushbuttons have one of the shortest above panel dimensions in the industry. The YB2 Series exhibits a short behind-the-panel body measuring only 24.5mm. In addition, the series has a tamper resistant 19mm actuator with a distinctive long stroke and user-friendly actuation.

Automix Matrix 780: The Automix Matrix 780 provides 12 channels of auto mixing with eight sub-mixes and comprehensive DSP, innovatively controlled by one of the easiest-to-use interfaces in the industry. The automixer features filters, equalization, compression and feedback elimination into gating or gain-sharing auto-mixing, with full control over number of open microphone (NOM) counts and priorities. Four line inputs include filters and equalization with automatic gain control for devices such as CD and DVD players, TV audio or an additional mixer. Sub-group or mix-minus mixes may be dedicated to specific tasks such as recording, archiving or broadcast, and may be routed to up to eight unique locations, each with EQ and limiting.

VGA line/driver receiver

DA103-217: The DA103-217 line driver/receiver amplifies video and sync signals when deployed as a line driver and, when installed as a receiver, the unit’s integrated equalization and gain controls make it possible to recover degraded VGA signals. With its compact form factor, it can easily be placed out of sight. The DA103-217 fixes smeared video, unstable sync, low image contrast, and mismatched resolution between a laptop computer and a video display. When used as a line driver, the DA103-217 amplifies video and sync signals and transmits them more than 150′ over VGA coaxial cable while maintaining 1600�1200 resolution. Individual adjustments enable users to improve image quality and compensate for decreased contrast level.

Rack-mount UPS/power conditioner
Furman Sound

F1000-UPS: The F1000-UPS rack-mount uninterruptible power supply/power conditioner provides battery backup, power protection, voltage regulation, and line noise filtration. It features a 12A capacity with 1000VA battery backup to prevent data loss and allow orderly shutdown of connected equipment in the event of a power outage. The first UPS system to feature Furman’s advanced non-sacrificial SMP surge/spike protection circuit, Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS), and Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT), the F1000-UPS provides professional-level protection, filtration and backup. It is fully programmable via RS-232, USB or LCD front panel interface. The front panel interface also displays valuable system and diagnostic information such as battery time remaining based on current load and voltage input/output.

Solid-state microphone system
Blue Microphones

Bottle Rocket Stage One: The Stage One Bottle Rocket is a transformerless, solid-state microphone system. Fully compatible with the Bottle Caps, the same interchangeable capsule system used with Blue’s Bottle mic can be used for an an array of tonal characteristics and pickup patterns. It comes with Blue’s B8 capsule as well as a custom shockmount and wood storage box.

Suspension windshield

Blimp: The Rode Blimp is a complete windshield and shock mounting accessory, designed to accommodate the NTG-1, NTG-2 and NTG-3 shotgun microphones in addition to the NT4 stereo microphone and most third party shotgun microphones up to 325mm (12-�”) in length. The Blimp’s main housing is based on a 10-frequency geodesic dome, with a triangular cross-section that allows the part to be injection-molded in one piece. This geometry creates a high open-area ratio that greatly improves the acoustic transparency while maintaining robustness and physical protection for the microphone. The end-domes can be easily removed by twisting off, allowing easy access to the microphone. An oversize thread allows easy and intuitive reattachment of the domes, avoiding clip systems that are difficult to use and vulnerable to breaking. Inside the dome structure are two infinitely adjustable suspension hoops that allow for superior mounting and shock absorption for a wide range of microphones. Four styles of microphone clip are supplied to allow for maximum compatibility.
