Exclusive preview and product launches from Preco at BVE

Broadcast distributor has an exclusive preview of ATV’s television talkshow system Magic THipPro at BVE 2013. Two launches are also expected: Logitek’s Mosaic II control surface and Tieline’s Merlin IP audio codec.

Broadcast distributor Preco is providing an exclusive preview of the new Magic THipPro from German manufacturer AVT at the upcoming BVE show in London (Read PSNEurope’s full BVE 2013 show preview). (Current model Magic TH6 is pictured.) AVT’s new management and control system, expected to receive its worldwide launch later in the year, is intended for use by phone-in talkshows on radio or TV, or other programming where multiple external phone contributions form a part. The THipPro is scalable, and can be configured to operate with POTS, ISDN or as a VoIP device and provides a digital echo cancelling system, automatic gain control (AGC) and an expander for each of the 16 circuits. In addition to the AVT preview, Preco will be launching the Mosaic II control surface by American broadcast manufacturer Logitek. The new model continues to develop the Mosaic formula, providing users with a modular customisable solution that effectively means each surface is a bespoke product. The standard Mosaic modules feature four faders each and 10, 17, 24, and 32 module options are offered. Two softkey modules are available where 12 individually programmable keys can offer ‘one touch’ functionality, Further customization is available through a choice of meter-bridges. Preco will also be launching the Merlin IP audio codec from Tieline. The new 1U codec can process and deliver a stable incoming signal from a smartphone using a GSM network even where there is up to a 10% loss. The Merlin can also handle two concurrent connections from either smartphones or another external audio codec. As well as 3G and 4G wireless Networks the Merlin can handle operating across LANs, WAN’s, WiFi and WiMAX networks, and can support both IPv4 and IPv6.
