DANTE AVIO NETWORK ADAPTERS

DANTE AVIO NETWORK ADAPTERS

Text:/ Christopher Holder This is an interesting move from Audinate. It’d be a little like Intel marketing its own mini PC. Ah, hang on. But the point remains, Audinate’s core business is selling Dante chips. And has done a remarkably solid job of it. Dante is easily the world’s preferred means of getting digital audio

EV EVOLVE 50 COLUMN LOUDSPEAKER

For when a stick PA is too ‘slim’ for your tastes. Review:/ Mark Davie Six seconds. That’s how long the EV rep reckoned it would take to get the Evolve 50 set up. By the time we got the column bits unzipped and stacked, then found a spot to plug in the power cord, it

SHURE GLX-D Wireless Microphone System

Budget 2.4GHz wireless with a battery of pro features. Review:/ Christopher Holder Batteries are a big deal in the world of wireless audio. Not so long ago, big events would need an Energizer sponsorship to ensure the battery costs didn’t send them broke. Opening ceremonies would often involve hundreds of FM beltpacks that provide a

VIVITEK DK8500Z

4K Single-Chip DLP Laser Projector Review:/ Christopher Holder This is a 4K Special Issue, so it’s only fitting we bring a 4K installation projector in for questioning. Easy? Not so much. There are very few commercial 4K projectors on the market. Vanishingly few.  Since some 12 months ago there have been a smattering of 4K

SENNHEISER TEAMCONNECT WIRELESS

Wireless Conference System for Online Meetings Text:/ Christopher Holder RIP Boardroom. Okay, I may be being a tad facetious but Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Wireless system turns just about any space into an effective conference space (at least from an audio perspective), providing clear audio and plenty of connectivity. This is an impressive system. It doesn’t surprise

FOHHN: INVISIBLE PERFORMANCE

FOHHN: INVISIBLE PERFORMANCE

Preview:/ Christopher Holder High performance audio requires high performance systems that take space and need to be optimally placed so the listening audience can best enjoy the sound reinforcement. In other words they’re the bane of most architects’ lives, who refuse to countenance their sleek interior design being blighted by brutishly ugly objects that perform

Cornered Audio Ci Series

Cornered Audio Ci Series

Danish loudspeaker manufacturer corners the BGM market. Text:/ Christopher Holder You could say this company has cornered the market. (Bet they’ve not heard that joke before.) If any other audio outfit does loudspeakers designed specifically to fit into room corners and cornices, I haven’t come across it. Cornered Audio is a Danish company. As we

HITACHI CPWU8700 & FL710

Text:/ Christopher Holder The Hubble Telescope pitch was compelling. Rather than relying on terrestrial telescopes the size of a W Class tram, or Bond-villain-style radio arrays/dishes; put a telescope into orbit where it doesn’t have to deal with the inherent distortion of viewing the cosmos through the Earth’s atmosphere. In other words, rather than continue

AUDAC XMP44 PROFESSIONAL AUDIO PLAYER

AUDAC XMP44 PROFESSIONAL AUDIO PLAYER

Text:/ Christopher Holder One thing I’ve noticed from my trips to ISE in recent years is just how rapidly Audac is developing as a company. Belgium-based Audac is an audio specialist and, in years gone by, from this distance at least, felt like another beige purveyor of install loudspeakers. Things have changed. Although retaining its
