Fulcrum Acoustic unveils CCX loudspeaker

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

USA - Fulcrum Acoustic has announced their latest innovative product, the CCX1295 12-Inch Subcardioid Coaxial Loudspeaker. Fulcrum's Passive Cardioid Technology enables the CCX1295 to achieve unprecedented LF/HF control for a product of its size, says the company.
The CCX1295 marks Passive Cardioid Technology's first application in Fulcrum's extensive TQ Install line of versatile installation loudspeakers. Combining the benefits of this technology with Temporal Equalization (TQ), the single-amplified CCX1295 delivers impressive LF directional control, improved intelligibility, enhanced sonic accuracy, and the output capability and pattern control of normal premium two-way systems in a considerably lighter and more compact enclosure than those with offset drivers.
"The CCX1295 features a single 12-inch 90° x 45° horn-loaded woofer and a three-inch compression driver in a compact enclosure designed for permanent installation in a wide range of applications," explains Fulcrum Acoustic co-founder and vice president of R&D David Gunness. "This passive subcardioid coaxial loudspeaker provides 9 dB of low frequency attenuation in the rear hemisphere. As the first member of our CCX12 family, the CCX1295 will soon be joined by 12-inch models offering a full range of horn patterns."

sE Electronics debuts small-diaphragm condenser

Monday, 17 July 2017

USA - New for Summer NAMM 2017, sE Electronics has announced the sE8 condenser microphone. The sE8 utilizes a handcrafted gold-sputtered small-diaphragm true condenser capsule manufactured by sE in their own capsule room, with this capsule’s brand new backplate design resulting in a more even, balanced sound and superior transient response as compared to any other small-capsule condenser of comparable price and beyond.
According to sE’s product manager Thomas Stubics, “You can apply any shelving filters or peak EQ without harshness, unpleasant colorations or distorted transients – it just stays natural.” This is accomplished with an extremely short, efficient signal path, without the use of ICs or transformers - and according to Stubics, the sE8 is “one of the quietest SDC microphones available today – and by far the quietest in its class. Sonically, we feel it can easily be compared with mics that retail for more than $1,000 USD per pair.”
The sE8 also includes two low-cut filters (switchable between 80Hz and 160Hz) and two attenuation pads (-10dB or -20dB), which provide it with the highest SPL handling capability and dynamic range in its class. The body is finished with the same new high-quality paint as sE’s latest microphones, plus a unique diamond-cut edge around the capsule, and the XLR connector is gold-plated for loss-free, reliable, and long-lasting use.
The sE8 is also available as a matched stereo pair, which comes complete with a precision-machined stereo mounting bar, two mic clips, two wind screens, and a sturdy flig

ProAudio Technology launches vertical line array

Friday, 14 July 2017

Germany - With the new VT16 Vertical Line Array loudspeaker ProAudio Technology expands their product family by a compact line array system 58 cm wide (22.8 in.) which sets new standards regarding efficiency and cost effectiveness.
The VT16 was first showcased at Prolight & Sound 2017, the series rollout began in May. The two 8” high-excursion low-mid drivers are arranged symmetrically around the horn-loaded 1.4” HF driver, providing a distinctive full-range behaviour down below 50 Hz. In the crucial mid-range all three drivers work in parallel, thereby providing essential headroom with a compact music programme. The horizontal dispersion is 90 degrees and the weight is 21 kg (46.4 lbs).
The linear acoustic phase of the VT 16 above 80 Hz ensures a perfect broadband coupling among the individual speakers within the array and enables to equalize the whole system with an amazingly small number of filters.
The impedance of 1 x 12 ohms allows an economical drive with up to six elements per channel of a 10.4-DSP or 20.4-DSP system amplifier.
By using the company’s light-weight flying frame of only 10 kg (22 lbs.) you can hang 11 VT16 on a 250 kg (552 lbs.) motor. The fully integrated three-point flying equipment of high-grade steel allows vertical angles between 0° and 8° in consistent 1-degree steps and arrays of 16 VT16 loudspeakers in vertical arrays.

PR Lighting supercharges Butterfly

Thursday, 13 July 2017

China - PR Lighting recently previewed the new Butterfly among a suite of new products at the Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt.
Although it was well received, the company decided to supercharge it by adding five small plates on the central disk, containing 15 x 1W LEDs, to the 6 x 40W Osram R/G/B/W 4 in 1 LEDs already existing. It is now known as the Butterfly II.
The new de luxe fixture is thus now composed of 11 independently controlled or grouped LED engines all in one unit. The fixed centre 3.5° RGBW beam is surrounded by the five individual identical RGBW beams, all with tilt control, creating a flapping butterfly effect.
This fixture contains five white LED clusters that can be individually controlled or can work together to create either a white blinder strobe or random strobing effect. The entire unit can pan 540° and tilt 270° while the entire head can spin continuously through 360° and the outer LEDs can tilt 180°. The LCD touchscreen and WDMX control make operation and connection easy and intelligible.

Chauvet introduces Ovation wash batten

Monday, 26 June 2017

USA - Chauvet Professional continues to usher in a new era of colour mixing opportunities in wash lighting with the introduction of the Ovation B-1965FC. Like its predecessors, the Ovation B-2805FC and B-565FC, the new 1.2m batten utilises a RGBA-Lime colour mixing system, allowing designers to create a richer and broader range of colours as well as brighter whites.
“The Ovation B-1965FC gives us a complete range of batten washes with RGBA-Lime colour mixing,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “Designers immediately appreciated the brighter output and more realistic colour washes they could achieve with our Ovation B-2805FC and B-565FC and they can expect the same from our latest batten. Lime fits into the optimal wavelength for the human eye, which is critical to the performance of these fixtures.”
Powered by 196 RGBL LEDs, the Ovation B-1965FC has an illuminance of up to 5,000 lux at five meters, making it one of the brightest battens on the market. In addition to its brightness and long throw distance, the fixture is versatile with multiple control personalities for complex programming schemes, up to seven sections of control and 16-bit dimming of the master dimmer and individual colours. The user-friendly batten offers RDM, Art-Net and sACN as well as standard 3-pin and 5-pin DMX control options.
Other standard features include a Virtual Colour Wheel that matches popular gel colours, temperature pre-sets for easier programming, and a linear holographic diffuser that locks into place for wall and cyc grazing. The fixture’s adjustabl
