When audio form and function come together, it’s a beautiful thing to the ears and eyes. AtlasIED introduces a range of high-definition audio products that emphasize aesthetics, functionality, and exceptional audio fidelity. The company will debut its new loudspeaker lines, sound masking solutions, and more at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019.
Z Series All-in-One Sound Masking Solutions
The Z Series is an all-in-one sound masking solution that provides high-quality speech privacy, high-definition background music, and paging functionality.
The Z Series consists of a choice of a four-zone (Z4) or two-zone (Z2) high-definition acoustical system and a wireless-enhanced speech privacy activation sign. Both the Z4 and Z2 include integrated pink and white noise generators for sound masking, as well as mic-line input for paging/background music and a Bluetooth receiver for wireless music transmission.
Models can be mounted in-wall, on-wall, or in a rack. Once installed, all hardware and wiring are centrally located behind the secure front panel, making it convenient and easy to access for post-installation service. The front panel display allows for system programming as well as end-user control.
Strategically Hidden Speaker (SHS)
Also launched by AtlasIED is SHS Series, Strategically Hidden Speaker. The ceiling-mounted speaker features Adaptive Dispersion Lens Technology, a new, patented waveguide form. Only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible on the ceiling. The dispersion lens can be easily painted or replaced with material to match the ceiling, allowing the SHS to blend in without compromising the architectural aesthetic of the room.
The speaker has a 2-way driver providing high-definition sound. Sound exits the two-way transducer and passes through the patented adaptive dispersion lens for a smooth and uniform frequency response with no “hot spots.” It uses an integrated 32-watt 70V/100V transformer with a sealed enclosure above the ceiling for optimal bass response, and offers ultra-wide 180-degree dispersion for full coverage in any environment.
DesignLab Custom Print Process
For hard-to-match environments, AtlasIED’s DesignLab custom print process uses a UV-printer to replicate colors, textures, and patterns, enabling the SHS to blend into any environment. Simply upload an image, provide a numeric color specification, or send a 6-inch sample of the ceiling tile to be matched, and the experts at AtlasIED will do the rest, delivering a matched SHS lenses for any project.
IPX Series IP Endpoints
AtlasIED also debuts the IPX Series IP Endpoints. Tailored to the K-12 educational and healthcare markets, the third-generation IPX Series ensures quick and efficient notification through audio and visual messaging.
Through a Unified Communications (UC) environment or the AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP ecosystem, the IPX Series delivers smart automation, including pre-programmed notifications for common functions like bells and critical alerts. A comprehensive library of pre-recorded messages is available through GLOBALCOM.IP or .EDU, which can be broadcast across the facility or directed to specific zones.
The IPX Series uses existing IT infrastructure for convenience and cost-savings and offers Auto Provisioning once it is on the network. “Talk To Me” Interoperability ensures the IPX units can work within any VoIP system, as they are open-platform engineered to communicate and be controlled by the top-selling providers of Unified Communications software platforms and standard SIP PBX systems.
