Preco unveils new digital mixer and telephone talkshow system25 February 2013
Preco’s range of products continues to expand and the company will be launching and previewing several new products at BVE.
Among the highlights will be an exclusive preview for a soon to be launched radio telephone talkshow system from AVT that can also operate as a VoIP hybrid.
The UK launch of the new Logitek Mosaic II control surface will take place at the show as well as a display of the recently launched Logitek ROC console. The Mosaic II provides a flexible, modular and customisable control surface that develops upon the success of the previous Mosaic model.
Also being exhibited by Preco will be the latest flagship of the range 8600FM processor from Orban, plus a selection of the most recent products from Cooltouch Monitors, Census Digital, Lawo routers and mixers and Yellowtec’s mounting systems, processors and interfaces for television and radio.
The new Magic THipPro (pictured) from German manufacturer AVT is expected to receive its worldwide launch later in the year but Preco will be able to provide UK broadcasters with an exclusive preview at BVE. The new product is a management and control system intended for use by phone in shows or other programming where multiple external phone contributions form a part and is scalable making it suitable for a wide range of scenarios.
The new Logitek Mosaic II control surface continues to develop the successful Mosaic formula providing users with a modular customisable solution that effectively means each surface is a bespoke product.
Launching at the show is the Merlin IP audio codec from Tieline. In addition to all the features broadcasters require from an audio codec such as redundant power supplies, the new 1U ‘rack-ready’ codec produces such a robust platform that it can process and deliver a stable incoming signal from smartphones using a GSM network even where there is up to a 10% loss.
Orban’s flagship Optimod 8600FM audio processor will be exhibited on the Preco stand and has not been seen at the BVE show before. The 8600 is said to have broken new ground in audio processing for FM radio. The unit decreases distortion while at the same time delivering clearly audible improvements in high frequency handling both in terms of dynamics and out and out power.
