Classroom/Small Office: CLSO-612
Atlona is proud to introduce the CLSO612 multi-swticher and 4k scaler. Easy to integrate, the CLSO-612 was designed for conference rooms, classrooms and Huddle rooms with inputs at lecterns, tables, and desks. Sources and displays can be located up to 230 feet or 70 meters from the switcher with HDBaseT inputs and outputs. Local HDMI and multifunction analog inputs work with any source. Combined with great features such as: 4K up scaling and down scaling, microphone ducking, and audio control, this is all you need for your presentation AV system.
The Atlona AT-CLSO-612 is an all-in-one solution design specifically for applications that require a mix of digital and analog input sources. The CLSO-612 is the perfect solution when you require one appliance that does it all and still costs far less then competitive alternative solutions.
The CLSO-612 offers a robust mix of inputs including two HDMI ports, two HDBaseT ports and two multi-purpose analog ports. As for outputs, the CLSO-612 offers one HDBaseT port with one mirrored HDMI port. This unit supports HDBaseT specifications for signal distribution up to 230 feet or 70 meters. In addition the CLSO-612 offers microphone input with internal mixing, decreasing background audio volume when the mic is in use.
This CLSO-612 multi-format switcher is also a scaler capable of distributing and up-scaling 4K and Ultra-HD resolutions. In addition the CLSO-612 offers Power over Category Cable, for HDBaseT inputs and outputs removing the need for extra power supplies. And, for reduced system cost and installation complexity, the CLSO-612 features Analog audio do-embedding with volume control. Finally, the CLSO-612 includes TCP/IP, RS-232 and IR control for easy system integration with a simple to use GUI interface for setup.

Epson, the number one selling projector brand worldwide, will demonstrate its industry-leading projection technology at InfoComm 2014. As a leading provider of 3-chip 3LCD projectors offering high brightness and a range of connectivity options to meet the needs of any venue, Epson will showcase installation and interactive projection solutions for businesses and large venues, and higher education solutions. The company will also provide insight on the color brightness standard and innovations that continue todrive the projection industry including:
- Large Venue and Corporate Solutions: Epson will showcase advanced, high-lumen installation projectors designed for large venues including lecture halls, bars and restaurants, houses of worship and more. Epson large venue solutions include features such as advanced edge blending and diverse connectivity and installation options. Epson will also demonstrate interactive projection solutions for business environments, including conference rooms and huddle spaces.
- K-12 and Higher Education Solutions: Epson will showcase its recently introduced BrightLink 595Wi interactive projector, the world’s first 3LCD, touch-enabled, interactive projector, as well as solutions ideal for auditoriums in higher education settings. With Epson education projections solutions from free mobile apps like the Epson iProjection™ App, to short-throw capabilities and HD and wireless connectivity, teachers can easily and affordably enhance classroom participation and collaboration.
- Color Brightness: This industry standard published by the Society of Information Display (SID) allows consumers to compare projector color performance without conducting a side-by-side shootout. Epson will discuss why one brightness measurement is not enough and a projector’s specification needs to show both high color brightness and high white brightness.
Exhibits are open Wednesday, June 18, through Friday, June 20. The exhibit hall is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. Epson booth # C7430.
Educational and/or Corporate Campus−Wide Emergency Alert Capability
Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce that its newest line of ProScale™ digital scaler/switchers, the VP−770, VP−771, VP−773, VP−774, VP−773AMP and VP−774AMP are all equipped with a unique built−in Mass Notification & Emergency Communication (MNEC) feature.
This essential feature provides the ability to have an education facility, corporate campus, or stadium−wide emergency notification immediately displayed on connected projection screens and monitors. When connected to a network, the Kramer ProScale digital scaler/switchers can be set up to automatically display an alert message. Notifications include flexible options such as the inclusion of an audio alert siren, and the choice of displaying either a text crawler or a text window. The system can even have the Kramer ProScale digital scaler/switchers power up displays that are off in order to display these important messages.
Messages with “Extreme” and “Severe” headers appear nearly full screen and cover any other content. Messages with lower levels of severity appear as text crawls along the bottom of the image. The new Kramer line of presentation switchers only requires an ethernet connection to the appropriate campus network.
Emergency alert messages are composed and transmitted using the XML−based Common Alert Protocol (CAP) application. This allows a warning message to be consistently disseminated simultaneously over many warning systems to multiple proprietary applications and devices. These CAP alerts can include specifics about weather (hurricanes, flooding, storms, etc.), safety and security, as well as secondary functions, such as alert tones, horns, buzzers, and sirens.
The system complies with the official national warning system standard in the United States, the Emergency Alert System (EAS), which works in coordination with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and a number of US national emergency agencies.
Lowell Expands Electronics Line with 30W-250W Mixers/Amplifiers and More Electronics
Lowell Manufacturing Company, a U.S. manufacturer of professional AV products, has expanded its line of audio electronics with 30-250W mixer/amplifiers, mixer/preamplifier, power amplifier, graphic equalizer, and AMFM tuner. Lowell electronics combined with Lowell speakers provide a complete system approach to specifying distributed audio.
“Providing more choices in electronics allows customers to order speakers and peripherals from the same source,” says Kathy Lane, Marketing Communications Manager. “Not only do customers save time when ordering, they get the assurance of specifying Lowell quality for each system they install.”
The new electronics include assemblies with brackets for quick installation in 19-in. E.I.A. equipment racks. Products include the MA Series of mixer/amplifiers with assemblies ranging from 30W (with three input channels, bass and treble control) to 250W (with five channel volume controls, treble and bass controls, master volume control and LED output level display bank). The PA250 power amplifier can be used to increase power capability of any MA Series mixer/amplifier, or as an all-in-one telephone system paging solution that provides 250W of continuous RMS power directly to an 8 ohm speaker load (rear switch connects internal 25V/70V transformer for distributed systems). Model MIX1 mixer/preamplifier features six channels with microphone inputs at screw terminals and Aux inputs at RCA jacks. Digital AMFM mono tuner Model AMFM1 has an illuminated display with 10AM/10FM station presets and an auto station search. Model EQ1 single channel 30-band Constant-Q graphic equalizer in 1RU panel is currently shipping; other electronics are slated for summer availability.
Visit us at InfoComm at booth C7949 and for bold new WyreStorm solutions that offer the professional integrator even more options, including full 4K distribution, presentation scaling, more slim-line extenders, multi-source/zone digital audio processing and switching, the launch of our Enado multi-platform, browser-based control solution, and not one but two HD-over-IP distribution systems.
