New TiMax SoundHub-M with iPad and TiMax Tracker at Infocomm 2012
1602Group TiMax, will exhibit at InfoComm in booth C10641, June 13-15, in Las Vegas, Nevada, showing the TiMax2 SoundHub system matrix, playback server, and audio showcontrol system-with iPad control.
Cambridgeshire-based Out Board Electronics has recently introduced the TiMax SoundHub-M version to augment the versatile suite of TiMax system processors and audio showcontrol products. The M-Version is targeted towards museums and visitor attractions to provide a multi-channel playback server linked with audio localization to bring a higher level of message impact and immersion to the all-important visitor experience.
The M-Version is a streamlined TiMax2 Soundhub tailored as a museum playback server and matrix, with versions ranging from 32 up to 64 outputs/audio-tracks with just eight inputs for key external sources such as show relay and announcements. In line with its usage requirements, the unit has a plain front panel with no display or controls, as a means to reduce costs and meet the highly competitive price points in this sector.
Out Board director Dave Haydon explains, "No other single box offers a similar combination of facilities for routing, EQ and delay processing, zone control, playback, spatialization, and show control -- the savings on hardware and installation costs are significant. We go further by including options for industry-standard networking such as Cobranet, Ethersound, Dante, and MADI, with an AVB interface waiting in the wings for the final industry committee ratification."
TiMax2 SoundHub will be demonstrated with the market-leading TiMax Tracker performer-tracking system used to track actors, presenters, singers, and other performers to control vocal localization, effects playback, lighting, and media servers.
