RCF, presenting at ISE, booth 7-N220, has extended its speaker range, and are set to reveal a more application-focused series at the show. Here's a run down of the innovations the company will be showcasing...
Designed for voice alarm applications EN54, the ceiling installation MF33EN speaker, and the wall mount WMF33EN speaker reveal a new design strategy. The COMPACT M series, with five models from 5 inch to 12 inch woofer size, is adaptable to every environment, able to provide high-quality acoustic performance for both background and foreground music.
The MR 50 / MR 40 bass reflex speakers for AV monitoring and fixed installations, both indoor and outdoor, have also been launched, in both black and white options. Following the success of the passive C-MAX speakers, the E-MAX 3112 and 3110 extend the flexibility in the entertainment installation market with a complete range of rigging accessories. Three RDNet compatible Vertical Steerable Array models VSA II, with improved quality for highly reverberant spaces, will be presented on the booth.
Joining the HDL family will be the HDL 26-A and HDL 28-A compact line array modules; RDNet, RCF’s on-board proprietary network control and monitoring system now in version 3.1, is featured in both the products.
RCF’s EVOX self-powered speakers J8 and JMIX8 have been gaining global attention, and the JMIX8 includes a studio-quality 8-channel digital mixer with remote control and Bluetooth audio streaming.
Expanding on the TTL 6-A column array system, RCF has developed a new concept of flexible array speakers, the TT 4-A Series. Variable waveguides: 100° x 25°, 100 x 50° and 60° x 25° dispersion, an innovative rigging concept, RDNet, rotatable enclosure and swappable components, the TT4A will soon be known as the “MacGyver Solution” of the RCF line, featuring RDNet and FiRPHASE processing for 0° phase response.
On the back of the success of the DXT 3000 platform for medium to mid sized distributed voice alarm systems, RCF has announced the DXT 3000 Planner, an interactive planning software which performs all the mathematical calculations for installations in low-reverberant environments with reduced background noise.
RDNet Networked Management System has also been improved upon, with the release of version 3.1. Real-time Air Compensation and the new Bass Shaper function will help the system engineer with tuning and correcting low frequencies while maintaining the desired tonal balance on the entire system. Shape Designer two-dimensional system design software is also now included within RDNet.
At the show, RCF will also have an active role on the ISE educational program AudioForum, organised in partnership with the Audio Engineering Society. The seminar, presented by Andrea Capra, RCF R&D Engineer, will showcase the FiRPHASE technology and the RCF approach to digital filtering.
